I've been to Ypers (Ieper), walked through some of the battlefields, cemetaries, and memorials of WWI there. Even had a waffle.

But the highlight was the Menin Gate Memorial. Every single night they have a Last Post ceremony there. That's incredible.

Here is a link of the class trip my old school has for the European History class where you can see the Menin Gate Memorial.

http://columbushigh.org/Organization.../MeninGate.mov

Various groups can ask to be part of the ceremony, and lay the wreath down. And although my group didn't, I think every class after me has.

Here is a link to a few of the pictures of when I went: http://columbushigh.org/Organization...APEURO05.shtml

I'm in two of the them, wearing the blue Royals hat, the grayish-green coat, and really white shoes, leaning against a cannon and looking at a memorial at a cemetary.

I can't wait to go back. Maybe next year I'll tag along with the class.

Cool pictures, Jenson71.

I assume that zig zag gully is an old trench from the war? That's my favorite picture. It must have been pretty horrible to fight in those wars.

Yeah, that's a trench. Now nature has run its course on some of them and they are looking less like trenches.

In some of the more regulated ones, you are no longer able to walk through them. In others, they have built walkways through them to support more tourists. My teacher says he sees this more and more each year most likely because they are planning for large events being that it will soon be the 100th anniversary of the Great War.

We also went to Normandy. That's Omaha Beach where my two classmates made the "USA" with rocks. And the four below that one were also taken at Normandy. Like Menin Gate, there is a ceremony every day involving the hoisting of French and American flags, and the class now takes part in that each year. And last year they met an American veteran who had fought on D-Day right as they were doing the ceremony.

April 23


1661. Charles II is crowned King of England. This ends the Interregnum (or English Commonwealth), the 12 year period immediately following the beheading of King Charles I (the new king's father) that ended the English Civil War. During the Interregnum, England was effectively a republic, led by Oliver Cromwell. Following Cromwell's death in 1658 and some internal problems, the Parliament invites Charles back to to restore the monarchy. Charles goes on to do a reasonably decent job as ruler, and is nicknamed the Merry Monarch, a term designed to capture both the relief of Britons over a return to normalcy and the lively and somewhat hedonistic character of Charles II's court. Leaving no legitimate heir, but 12 illegitimate offspring by his numerous mistresses, he is succeeded by his brother, James. Diana, future Princess of Wales can trace her ancestry back to Charles II through two of his illegitimate offspring.

1920. The Turkish Grand National Assembly is formed under the leadership of Mustafa Kemal (Ataturk), denouncing the rule of Sultan Mehmet IV and drafting a temporary constitution. This begins the process that will end two years later when the National Assembly abolishes the Sultanate.

1985. Coca-Cola switches to "New Coke", one of the biggest marketing disasters in corporate history. Three months later they switch back to their classic formula, with ABC News' Peter Jennings interrupting regular programming to announce this dramatic event. The resulting dramatic increase in sales -- by year end Coke sales had grown at twice the rate of Pepsi, and Coke had regained its throne as the #1 soda, which it has held ever since -- makes pundits wonder whether Coca-Cola wasn't crazy like a fox all along...

2010. With inauspicious timing given the hoopla over the 2010 NFL draft, Amnorix resurrects this thread after a one year hiatus.

Good bump, Mr. Amnorix.

I do believe that the "new coke" deal was completely contrived. Of course, so was Chuck The Deuce and all that "Charles II" stuff.

Also on this date in history, the first effort to breastfeed a gorilla baby at the San Diego Zoo was attempted by a human lady animal trainer named Brenda Potts who survived both a violent strangulation and massive nipple reconstruction surgery to become the first woman to be arrested and put on trial for attempting to stomp a newly born member of an endangered species to death.

April 23 2010 - The largest riot in American history is finally quelled in Denver by the Colorado National Guard. The riot was allegedly precipitated by the NFL draft selection of Tim Tebow.
