Legion Branch Appreciates Publicity


Thanks so much once again for your support of your branch. Numbers are not confirmed as yet, but the event (silent/live auction/chilli competition) on 25 Apr would have to be seen as a great success. I also note your support for the mothers day brunch.

I would hope from all of your support and the efforts of the current executive, we can move our branch forward. We had a full house, numerous items donated both from business and members as well, and I have heard comments from attendees to as when the next one will be.

Comments I received were: this was a blast, what a lot of fun, I had such a good time, must do this again.

Why is it that when I drive by a gas station on my way home from work and decide to gas up in the morning, the price goes up overnight?

The Seafire

"While Sarah Hill and I were taping the first Central Missouri Honor Flight special in the Ozark Hangar at Columbia Regional Airport in January 2009, I noticed Jim Cooper working on a plane in the corner of the hangar. I love airplanes and this sight piqued my interest.

The Texting Dilemma

The Texting Dilemma
An elderly couple had just learned how to send text messages on their cell phones. The wife was a romantic type and the husband was more of a no-nonsense guy.

One afternoon the wife went out to meet a friend for
coffee. She decided to send her husband a romantic text message and she wrote: "If you are sleeping, send me your dreams. If you are laughing, send me your smile. If you are eating, send me a bite. If you are drinking, send me a sip. If you are crying, send me your tears. I love you.”

The husband texted back to her:

"I'm on the toilet. Please advise."

What Does 170-Year-Old Champagne Taste Like?

What Does 170
In 2010, divers recovered a trove of untouched champagne in a Baltic Sea shipwreck. Thanks to branding on the corks of the bottles, researchers traced the bubbly back to the champagne houses of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin, Heidsieck, and Juglar, estimating that they had been corked in the 1830s or 1840s.

The watery resting place 50 meters below the surface provided near perfect aging conditions: cold, stable temperatures and complete darkness.

But how did it taste?
