Day 30 - Saddest Death Scene

No You Tube today, as there isn't one.  One of the sites described this film as understated and under-rated! 

The Way To The Stars  was filmed in the 40's and stars John Mills as an English RAF pilot ... with the first half of the film about the impact that war and a new RAF field is making on a small community ... then in the middle is the change over as the USAAF arrive, and the chnges they bring to the area, with he second half showing how the locals copee with both these variations and the on-going war and losses.

Near the end of the film the American pilat (played by Douglass Montgomery) is returning from a flight, with bombs still aboard ... he gets the crew to bail out, then tells the tower that he will be able to land ... and so turns in, away from the village, and the ineveditable happens.

It is poinant - and demonstrates the pointless loss of life during war - but also the supreme sacrifice that many gave.

Getting To Know You Meme - Day 1

Day 01 - Introduction

As I have been getting lazy about writing, while having fun with my icons, I have decided I need to get words bak into and out of my brain ... so, sorry to say, you will have to cope with the "Getting To Know You Meme" ... I had originally not planned to do it when I saw it first on enigmaticblues LJ as I thought I was pretty open about life.

However, I've now decided that in doing this, I will have to focus on putting thoughts into words and comprehensive sentances.

So, over the next few weeks I shall endevour to do this set of questions, if only for my own positive thoughts.

I'm having a productive day of getting things done!

One of the things I've just done is backed up ... uploaded all my icons onto my icon journal ... and for those not mad enough to have just been spammed ...

It started with getting my seasonal_spuffy ones over there, then thought that I ought to check all the others are there - including those that I've entered in small competitions at wts_icontest , who_rumble , spuffy_stills    and voy_stillness   All of the ones shown have already competed, so I'm not breaking any rules now!  I wanted to get them all sorted before I start next months 20in20 competitions.
