Please join us in this FLY THE FLAG campaign.
On Saturday, September 11th, 2010, an American flag should be displayed outside every home, apartment, office, and store in the United States . Every individual should make it their duty to display an American flag on this ninth anniversary of one our country’s worst tragedies. We do this honor of those who lost their lives on 9/11, their families, friends and loved ones who continue to endure the pain, and those who today are fighting at home and abroad to preserve our cherished freedoms.
In the days, weeks and months following 9/11, our country was bathed in American flags as citizens mourned the incredible losses and stood shoulder-to-shoulder against terrorism. Sadly, those flags have all but disappeared. Our patriotism pulled us through some tough times and it shouldn’t take another attack to galvanize us in solidarity. Our American flag is the fabric of our country and together we can prevail over terrorism of all kinds.
So, here’s what we need you to do … Fly an American flag of any size on 9/11. Honestly, Americans should fly the flag year-round, but if you don’t, then at least make it a priority on this day.
Thank you for your participation. God Bless You and God Bless America !!!

I came across an old Irish film the other day that I thought was fantastic. It’s the story of the Howth Tram that ran along the coast in Ireland. The film is called “Once Upon a Tram”. It was created in 1958 and has some wonderful scenes of Irish life at the time.
Here’s the link and a brief excerpt from the site. I hope you enjoy.
Directed by John Sarsfield and James Maguire between 1958 and 1959, Once Upon a Tram immortalizes one of the last runs of the Howth Tram that linked the villages of Howth and Sutton that lie along the County Dublin coast, 9 miles from the city centre. Families escaping the hustle and bustle of city life would head there for an afternoon at the seaside.
Life passes gently by from one tram stop to the next, in the midst of the Irish countryside glorified by the inimitable Kodachrome film. Some passengers get off, others climb on, for a round of golf before teatime.
Narrated with old-fashioned elegance by the smooth voice of renowned Irish actor Cyril Cusack, Once Upon a Tram is a nostalgic film that moves along like an old lady taking her time.
Our sincerest wishes and hopes to all of our families, friends and visitors for a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year! We appreciate all of your support and prayers. We hope this special season brings you peace, joy and everything you need, and even most of what you want:-) [No good Irishman would wish you everything you want, because that would leave you with nothing left to hope for.]
