General Pickett's Letters 2

http://www.ravenecho.com/static/156/5b4fa6aeac1c76093bdacaf5292db091.jpg

Baillie!

Hey !

Here is the place to eat in Style! Almost across the street from the

motel on Steinwehr! We have been there a few times and the food is

EXCELLENTE!

http://www.ravenecho.com/static/156/df36eedefe922e8f5a64bcbf321e4204.jpg

Now That's The Style!

Baillie!

Strangely enough I am visited by a lot of Southern Sympathizers.

They come in and quietly tell me their true feelings. I let it out

loud and clear about Lincoln and his war of Northern aggression. I

sell a lot of flags & bumper stickers, swords & rebel knife sets. I

will do well as long as we can survive. Diane is having trouble with

her floral & gift side as it slows down in the summer but taking on

this new building with a mortgage and lines of credit are really

hurting about now. I do pray that she can survive until I get my

license to sell beer. It would be s huge asset to my retail revenues.

I am patient but I am worried for her and us as a couple.

Take care & I shall get the cd's burnt tonight hopefully!

George.

Baillie!

I have assembled your package accordingly and will submit it to the

yankee postmaster as of new light! Your package has two cd's and some

interesting items for y'all to place in your treasure box! I have s

you requested signed and dated each CD and added a few goodies for you

as well! I hope and trust you will enjoy t he contents and

send me your remarks after receiving the same. Last September my son

Erik & I joined up with the SCV to happily rejoice over the fact that

the Sims Exhibit at Gettysburg College was coming down. This negro (so

called) artist took a CSA flag-re-colored it with the sodomite

(rainbow) colors and hung it from a noose and called it the "correct

way to HANG a confederate flag". Well we were out in force on the

weekend of Sept. 25th! Here are a few pictures from the event!

George!

Our view from The Quality Inn on Steinwehr Ave!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND WORDS. I AM HOPEFUL BUT CAUTIOUS AS WELL. I

have some good news though, I received a call from one of the larger

newspapers in the area for an interview & story. Actually Dan from The

Gazette just left. The interview went well. My wife said he was in here

a week ago and bought a Southern Bumper sticker that read " Fighting

Terrorism since 1861" and a can of pop. Tomorrow is the photo shoot.

Thing s will get better. My faith wavered a bit but I must keep

focused. Her Floral Shop gets tough in the summer and as I said the

mortgage is a lot more than our rent was. But today all is well and

much better.

Tomorrow will be July 1st--the battle begins, Saturday will be ok but

Sunday after I close at 2pm, by 3 I will probably be getting hammered

from a few 100 pints of beer. I will raise my glass in the honor of the

names of all our boys!

Check out all those picture I sent you and report back if they were

fair to view!

We are a band of Brothers!

Check out all those picture I sent you and report back if they were

fair to view!

We are a band of Brothers!

George

Amen to that George...............now I was looking at a portrait of

George this morning before going to school as you do........and I

thought of the picture of you with the really big flag

now you ain't got to be blind to see that you and him are the exact same

build! not just the face but the whole jolly lot!!!!!!!!!!

worth investigating

the uniform George is wearing is way too big as the cuff almost hide his

hands

now the human head is always roughly the same size no matter what the

body size

comes form the egg dividing into head and body equally at an early stage

so measure the head and then ratio the rest of the body proportionally

to work out his dimensions

compare to yours and I'll bet you $5 or a hog roast that they are the

exact same

we carry our ethric body around with us not just our soul memory

so we always look like what and who we were....... not good for some

great for others

but that's the universe for you - not fair

but I'm no oil painting yet I like my self!

so this would be a good little scientific exercise to match you and him

me I'm already sold - I can tell by the way you talk and think you're

George all right - no question

Now a curious coincidence

my College friend Phil Moore

looks the spitting image of General Alexander Webb the Brigade of whom

your boys crashed into!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm pretty sure he has a past life memory as a Cavalier one of Rupert's

rarr rarr wangers! as we say

Prince Rupert of the Rhine was King Charle's Dashing Cavalier General

until he lost mainly to Myself and Cromwell at Marston moor

had to hide in a bean field to avoid capture

but I hadn't thought of him resurfacing in the American Civil War

like me I was an Infantry General then a Rebel private

he would have been a Cavalier Gentleman (Cavalry) and then an Infantry

Major General although Brigadier at the time of Gettysburg

Phil showed us the fish tank he had installed in his master bedroom -

much to his wife delight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! not

as a 50th birthday present to himself

on the wall above was a picture of John Wayne no less in a WW2 steel

helmet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! may be a subconscious post it note to

himself

he also has an old Army Land Rover the same as the American jeep

equivalent

we drove around the village flying the Scottish flag from the front

mudguard as we returned the BBQ after the party the other week

it's all starting to make sense

I also think that his one and only Holiday in America was to Gettysburg

and the Hersey's World in Pennsylvania

strange combination but it works for me!!!!!!!!!!!

I will check with him tonight

like you he has a family and has to keep them occupied

2 boys and a girl his eldest son said "I was going to be called Rupert!

But it got changed to Douglas after the Earl of Douglas of border fame

in history - Scotland vs England"

also he had a Rupert Bear sweat shirt on.........

so the Rupert thing is definitely there

but the John Wayne was a new one on me - it was so at odds with all the

decor of the room - wonder what Carole his wife thinks!

divorce proceedings from mine if I tried that!

I'll report back on that

would be a fine coincidence indeed - but that's how the universe

works!!!!!

I've just come accept that now and laugh!

meant to be everything for a reason

have a beer for me with the boys

we have our ball tomorrow night

heck of a weekend!

Head diameter : 23-1/2"

Looks fine

have just this minute compared George to me ratio wise and results look

fairly accurate

ratio wise same size head comes to 7 inches across temple to temple in

straight line

so George on picture in my Gettysburg book comes out

at chest 16.24 inches straight across shoulder to shoulder me 18 inches

Upper arm 12.53 inches me 17 inches quite a difference as you would

expect

lower arm elbow to knuckle bones 11.76 inches me 15 inches

so yep much slighter

now you with the benefit of a good all American modern diet will be

larger but still proportioned same as George

so will work out from below

then e-mail

if I can find a standing portrait of George we can work out his height

looks on the money!

Baillie!

George

this site shows a do that includes Picketts great grand daughter

not the head shape very Pickett like

most of the Baillie's have a similar shaped head

also Sallie Corbell Pickett was LaSalle's name so she was a Sallie!

coincidence

beginning to think that we share a lot in common and that this is all

not a coincidence!

http://www.pickettsociety.com/dcp_ceremony.html

Have you thought of contacting the family!!!!!

May freak 'em out if their belief systems are not open but may find the

opposite?

don't know tricky one

this is where having a book on it helps as they can take it or leave it

no pressure

sent a copy to Mary Bass Spaldings (Sallie's mother) descendants in the

hope they might have a portrait but they never got back

guess it was a freak 'em out case

Luckily with Norman it wasn't !

Other wise book would never have happened

Baillie!

I have been supposedly looked over by Dr. Walter Simkew just like

Jeff. He is slow to respond but assures me he will do a body, face

comparison (as you have already done without andy haste) and read my

story as well. Are you familiar with his works and research. He also

claims, and I say that with no reservations but have to use the "claim"

part, to be the incarnation of Mr. Adams, one of the founding Fathers

of our USA. I just wondered if you heard of him and can give me any

insight as to his authority and credentials in our matters of late! He

seems up to snuff but his slow response worries me a bit. He appears

to be a dapper and intellectual gent, but you cannot judge the book by

its cover!

George

Got it in one George!

I have sent him my stuff and he has invited me to speak! but money time

and distance prevent me joining in at the moment

but that may change

cain't lose nothing!

he does his own thing and is making some progress

He helped Jeff

website is interesting but like most things

you have to focus your attention on what is important to you

the truth will out eventually

and so long as the guru doesn't ask for you cash - then OK

Old Indian saying "beware of Fat man with cigar!"

made that up but handsome is as handsome does so my Mom always said

Baillie

PS Oh I shall be closing down for a couple of weeks to go sailing over

at Herne Bay...leave Sunday

will be back end of month to check e-mail

so don't worry Baillie will be back he ain't going nowhere permanent

just round that damn light house

One of the things I got to do is get Sallie a grave marker before I peg

it.

then the matrix will allow me to get to that damn Sapelo Light house!

Hey Baillie,

I will nat be able to talk with you until August 8th. We are in

Gettysburg from July 29 through the 6th.

Sallie met George when she was around 12 yrs old. My Diane met me when

she was 12 years old and knew she was going to marry me at that moment.

Sally said the same thing in her books. " My Soldier, always MY

Soldier"

WOW!

Huh?

George

Old George added your website to my own as a link! We are a band of

brothers & check out the damn good music too!

George

Beautiful.....

love conquers all

and as I say Love is the glue that binds the universe together

It would seem that there may be several lifetimes together for such a

strong relationship

Have fun !

Our 5 man band, The 52nd Regimental String Band, has now moved into the FINAL round of voting on the

Dixie Broadcasting Southern Heritage Music Awards. This is sort of like the "Grammys" of Southern

Music.

The last day to vote on the internet is Saturday, October 15th.

You can vote every day on every computer you can get your hands on until then.

Please email your friends and ask them to vote for us too.

It would be nice for our band to get an award after keeping alive the great music from the Civil War

era for over 15 years now. There's no money involved in the award, just the pride of accomplishment.

Their voting web site is located atwww.dixiebroadcasting.com

Carpet cardboard tube with automotive bondo on each end. In the center

of the 1/4 pound of black powder was a hairspring from old gauges I

used to work on. Stainless steel heated up quick. A positive wire

soldered on one end protruding and a negative wire for the other part

of the spiraled spring doing the same out the other end. Looked like

one of those pull crackers where you pull both strings and she goes off

in the center. 50 feet of 10 gauge copper speaker wire and hook it up

to a 12 volt auto battery and in less than one minute BOOM!!!!! And she

was up and flying big red tail behind her. All old steel 55 gal drums.

Damn near blew the top off of her. Looked like a bullet the way the one

end bulged up.! Those we the 1980's and they were crazy!

Good to see health and safety being followed!

always have a long fuse - longer the better

hot wire job impressive

shame it wasn't on video

Alice Blake's brother (from Rebel Spirit) makes cannons out of oxygen

cylinder and acetylene steel bottles

lives out in Colorado lets them off ion the desert another ex Reb I

guess!

Carpet cardboard tube with automotive bondo on each end. In the center

of the 1/4 pound of black powder was a hairspring from old gauges I

used to work on. Stainless steel heated up quick. A positive wire

soldered on one end protruding and a negative wire for the other part

of the spiraled spring doing the same out the other end. Looked like

one of those pull crackers where you pull both strings and she goes off

in the center. 50 feet of 10 gauge copper speaker wire and hook it up

to a 12 volt auto battery and in less than one minute BOOM!!!!! And she

was up and flying big red tail behind her. All old steel 55 gal drums.

Damn near blew the top off of her. Looked like a bullet the way the one

end bulged up.! Those we the 1980's and they were crazy!

My sentiments exactly dear chap! We really are the same!!!!!!!!!!

It's a shame they are so darn expensive!

wouldn't think so to see the number the National parks have so liberally

scattered around - that's why I love visiting the Battlefield always

happy when around one of those

If I hadn't have been in the cavalry I would have been in the

artillery!!!!!!!!!!

as I was this time when I shared the Officers' Mess with the 47 Field

Regiment Royal Artillery 1984 - 87

I was in my element!!!!!! love guns bigger the better and they had

Abbot self propelled which not so grand as the M108's the Yanks have are

still a useful bit of kit - can lob a shell 25 miles!

Here's mine

all from 1969 and firing the musket I made in 1967 -68!

and one of my war games taken in 1970.......

I slept with a picture of John Singleton Mosby that I had drawn over my

bed!

An oil painting of the Surrender at Appomattox and an oil portrait of

JEB Stuart I did in 1970 - hung in the lounge

Think my parent wondered what they had brought into the

world!!!!!!!!!!!!

ian THE Baillie

time to get ready for work..........

Baillie,

The idea of a Pickett encounter is superb. I still keep thinking how in the Bloody Hell did all

this happen? My God, such talk, such fantastic nonsense! A fiction Novel if it may, but truth,

far from it. Unless like You, Jeff, and I, we survived our experiences! You can never firmly

believe by just hearing and reading a persons story. You will believe it once you experience it 1st

hand. I always have been a doubting Thomas. Show me boy...I am from Missouri! But walking into a

trap such as Gettysburg was so damn strange and such an unknown territory that any simple

explanation as to my reactions that day in 2003 would have been a wild guess at what really was

taking place. 140 years of my physical absence did not alter the energy I left there for myself to

find. I always thought as I was in the 2nd year of investigation into this that GEP left something

for himself to have if and when he came back. I found it...in a second, in the battlefield(now

parking lot) in Gettysburg. Took me a year or so to realize it. I daily have a notion of self doubt

and then I think of the balcony and my emotional and mental feelings and thoughts and there in

simple terms ain't no way I could have known about the battlefield over that damn hill and my

extreme sadness would have been impossible to fake. Even if i was nuts, I am now a combatant of the

totally insane for obeying the orders of RE Lee to make that ludicrous charge and loose all my men.

Many factors play into the days events and I do now believe he was right (Lee) when he said it's all

my fault! I thought we were invincible! Yes Bobby Lee, you blew it BIG TIME! You Royally fucked

up! And we all payed the cost. And now I have repaid it in full measure! A second time around!

Thanks General Lee and that Gen. Anderson for laying low his division in their asses that day and

never joining the charge. All the emotion and hurt and loss has come and is receding finally again

and i am able to function without looking over my shoulder. What a ride this has been, let me

inform you!

Happy New Year dear friend!

A big CSA hug for you and a kiss on the cheek to Harriet and Pauline from this old fart General!

From all of Us to all of you folks!

Happy New Year!

The General & Mrs. Pickett

& family

Wow....so succinct and well put

Nothing worse than old Bobby Lee when he had his dander up

It was far easy to walk across that field than to say "I ain't going" to

Bobby Lee

Lee admitted his mistake but the Lee apologist brigade that sought to

make him into an iconic legend made it other wise........and in that

lies the emotional crime

Old Pete Longstreet took the force of their wrath as a scapegoat as did

JEB Stuart (easy to do!)

But those boys that gave their last full measure deserved better

never was the phrase "Rich man's war poor man's fight" more true!

in some ways the wiring of my books seeks to redress the balance

I always looked at George's portrait and empathised

I lost my reputation to Jamie Graham the Great Montrose.......and

history remembers him as the heroic highland gentleman and General

William Baillie as a plodding incompetent

all thoughts of Marston Moor's decisive victory over Prince Rupert

conveniently forgotten

and so Covenant General will in some small measure redress that balance

my boys foot slogged all over the Scottish highlands chasing him high

and lo

I lost 2 armies!!!!!!! To lose one is careless but two unforgivable, as

they say

But my hands were tied by Archibald "The Red Fox" Campbell my political

master and a nasty piece of work

General David Leslie with his massed cavalry were able to track Montrose

down and deliver the decisive blow at Philiphaugh - September 13 1645.

Less than one month after my defeat at Kilsyth

In the aftermath William Baillie was able to clear his name in front of

the Scottish Parliamentary Committee of Estates - he even managed to get

commended! As they could commend the other without Baillie being

included - but the mud sticks!

and all those poor boys that lay dead deserved better

it is for them that I am writing "Covenant General"

and indeed with meeting David Baxter from Gloucester two years ago they

have found me

He was a soldier captured at Dunbar and transported to Virginia as a

slave

his subsequent lives were as a Native American and then a Cowboy in the

Wild West before being born again here in England

He recognised me at my Glastonbury Talk in 2004........and we became

firm friends afterwards

in 2005 we shared time and space in a journey through the crop circles

of England

He calls me Dad! Just as the boys did - I was their General - their

Father

they were my boys........

sound familiar? !!!!!

That is why we are spiritual twins - that and the Sallie connection

uncanny but that is how it works!

Happy New Year General!

Love

ian the Baillie

and from all of us.......... Miss Pauline, Miss Harriet and Johnnie

(Pauline's Dad who loves with us) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hey Baillie,

Been real busy at the store with change over from Christmas to

Valentine's Day. I've been still up & down no real way to track it

yet. Some folks are just for the food items and others just for the

Confederate items. But I at least have one sale every day. And I hear

thats real good for being open only 8 months. Some days its 30 people

and others one or two. Bit I wanted to let you know that next Tuesday

Jan 17th a day after my 181st Birthday, I will again take my oath as a

Royal Arch Mason finally and on next Friday January 20th stand on my

grave in Richmond Virginia. Amazing, I wonder if Miss LaSalle will get

triggered as she was there when they buried my dead ass in October of

1875 and she is buried next to me there as well. Go figure I die on

July 30th and they wait until a day in October to bury me. May be

that's why I was born in October and on my confirmation name ( Vincent

DePaul) Saints day of becoming the Patron Saint of the Virginia Diocese

in the 1800's. Also I died at that Hospital in Norfolk Va. "St.

Vincent DePaul).....Ouch!

Then on March 11th I will take my degrees as a Knight's Templar and

be what I once was. Not bad, not bad at all! Virginia will be a lot

of pictures you can bet on that! I will have Erik shoot one of myself

& Diane at the Graveside for your use and many more to view.

More later I have to go cook supper! Have a good night and a great

Sunday dear friend!

Paul

Hi George

Guessed you were busy...........post Christmas and all that

Things have settled down real good here.......all is well

Teaching History at school and Religious Studies - Rites of Passage

took my Native American dream catcher (I made) in to introduce the topic

- a metaphor for life much as you describe eloquently below

the web of life and the universe - ain't it great to have your horizons

expanded such as we have?!

I can see my web of interaction so clearly - all the connections over

millennia - time and death are the biggest illusions ever Penn and

Teller could never compete with that act!!!!!!!!

A Knight Templar too well done Old Boy! Steeped in history and legend -

Col Massa Bob Anderson of the 5th Georgia was a Grand Commander of the

Order and Savannah Police Chief after the shin dig was over.....

I look forward to your Field report of the impending return to ground

zero - poor George did they put him on ice for those missing months?

My experience was not what I expected - it was one of euphoria at having

well and truly beaten the system - and having completed the journey to

stand there - then as I noticed my dear sister Hettie next to me that

was the moment I felt tears well up in my eyes - instant emotion

my favourite sister lying next to me and she having died quite some

years early than me too

Time was short that day........ but I returned with Roger just before we

left Griffin and took pictures of my memory-a-bilia coming full circle

as you can see in Rebel Spirit

I then rubbed the red Georgia clay from my grave into my cavalry kepis -

inside and out so that it gave a red dust sheen

I had come home ashes to ashes, dust to dust

I can see the kepi now just up on my shelf to the right of this

computer, a priceless reminder now personalise of our doomed cause in

which we lost all........

Do I regret anything.......nah!!!!! I would do it all again - take the

pain and loneliness, the tears and laughter

for they are precious memories of a civilization - gone with the wind

Now I'm railroading.......it's 1880 and the west is truly wild - then

nation is rebuilt and expanding. I'm heading for Americus Georgia a

civil engineer working for the Central of Georgia RR. I love those

trains "The General" - it is doing track laying duty before finding a

new lease of life and national fame in the 90's

I'm doing my bit to build a great nation - I'm proud to be American at

this time - a time of boundless opportunity and invention

I'm just two stops away from Andersonville Camp at Sumter - I go there

for walks to remember the dark side of war and those Yankee boys that

starved - it draws me

And so as I left my grave in Oak Hill cemetery Griffin Georgia in the

bright February sunshine of 2001 Roger and I drove to Andersonville

The birds don't sing there even now.....I was glad to get away from its

oppression yet determined to pay my respects

Then as I drove I felt compelled to swing left off the highway into

Sumter a collection of clapboard houses amongst some shady tress - where

the Railroad depot was. Some children played and I did a U turn and a

pronounced sense of de ja vu hit me as we drove slowly out.......

it was only after I returned to England I realise that I had walked that

walk before.............

amazing

Well better go mein alte komaraden

Tschuss liebe Herr General

and all the best from this side of the pond

Hi Paul/George Sir!

Have spent my free time looking at air fares today

British Airways fly to Newark NJ no probs but the price jumps real high

over half term Feb 11 until Feb 19th

Best I can do is £808 pounds for Harriet and me thats $1200!

if I could come back on 20th it drops to £400 $600

it's a real racket here

I also look at Belleayre skiing area in the Catskills as H could go

skiing

how far is that from you straight up the 87 and turn left????

Is it possible to drive daily from Amsterdam to Belleayre or is that

just not poss?????

anyways I am trying to get Stateside..........asap!

Good news for Harriet - the Church Schools' Trust is doing a two week

Pilgrimage to the Holy land April 3 and Harriet can go for £250 in stead

of £1245! As it is subsides - the Retired Ex Archbishop of Canterbury

Lord Carey is leading it....... He's our Patron

so Harriet has signed up for that jaunt! A once in a lifetime chance to

experience something amazing......

well that's the news front here - mild weather from the Atlantic making

it wet and windy here

Thinking of you........ and your impending adventures

Hey Baillie,

If you are planning a trip in Feb as hinted to, thats Valentines week.

I am not able to leave the store because of a tremendous amount of

work required by me to help Diane with the preparation of Florals for

the Lovers Event! Its a VERY big Holiday for Flowers and I am not seen

in the light of day after working my straight 8 hrs at the newspaper

until the 15th. Then its a major slow down. And since its during the

week (Tuesday) its bigger than usual. Weekends its out to dinner and

skip the flowers. This year its flowers & candy. The rest of the week

I will be working until 5pm each night...so let me know early on old

boy! I would really hate to miss the chance to spend some quality time

with you and be stuck working. I can adjust a schedule accordingly if

I know when you will be in country. Now back to packing!!!

Thank You!

Paul

Understand busy here too - don't hold your breath as they wham up the

prices that week ......

Scotland lots more promising - nobody wants to go there half term week

and if the snow is OK we can ski at Aviemore

It's all supply and demand - BUt I will make it - promise

ian

meantime enjoy Richmond!!!!!!!! Especially the museum of the

Confederacy

I know when you will be in country. Now back to packing!!!

Thank You!

In Gettysburg in the museum they have this on display. How thy got it,

I do not know. Is it original, that I do not know. I like the design

so maybe it was mine!

Wow...looks like a Masonic gauntlet - that would be very appropriate!

with two hands the other way - yes that is very George......

probably Sally's!

Well some news here - we are off to Norway skiing..........mainly due

to price

and chasing my Viking routes lot happening Norwegian wise since last

summer

half term is mad price wise here everything jacked up 3 or 4 times

normal

lots of our pupils are going next week as it is still cheap....

so I have book a cheap flight to Oslo and Harriet and I are driving 4

hours up to Hemsedal where we went skiing two years ago

managed to get the last room in the hotel we stayed at

also we can stay the night with a crop circle lady friend of mine that

is helping me trace my Viking memory

991AD Olaf Tryggvasson etc....... I have identified the place I used to

live at Balestrand - literally Baillie beach!

had to be didn't it - !!!!!!!!! the pictures fit my memory but I will

need to go there to feel it.........

I ended up in Iceland around 1000AD after the battle of Svolda Fjord

where Olaf and the rest of us got jumped by the Danes and Swedes

combined - Olaf leapt overboard to avoid capture when all was lost

I am pretty sure I had my own long ship and was a chieftain if not Olaf

himself...........! small population no more than 200 000 souls so it

is possible.......

certainly the Christianity bit bringing it to Iceland figures large in

my memory......... hang over from my Roman circus days!

so the universe beckons......... and I have been working with Natalie

my art colleague from school she is real Viking......

very powerful lady

has a memory of a Mid west boy that got killed in world war 1 as a dough

boy from Ohio or Indiana... she loves dungerees and has a straw hat she

wears

we bonded straight off with the merger due to the American connection

and the Viking connection I have just drawn her as I see her in 991AD

she has a book on Norway displayed prominently in the class room so I

picked that up pretty quickly

here she is Wednesday in the staff room the outfit is very chain mail

and tunic

here is how I see her 991AD

I based it on a photo I took of her last Friday.......

I will see what her emotional reaction is to it tomorrow

I will paint it to.....for added impact! but I like it I have captured

her to a tee!

fun stuff!!!!!!!!!!

whole new science going on!!!!!!!!!

Ja gern!

What incredibly stirring words.......... sums up the mood and attitude

of the Third Reich and the belief in a German future that would last

1000 years - the new golden age

a powerful tapping into the ancient German psyche and imagery

I resonate with that to as it is my world - I was a Saxon around 600AD -

the wolf culture - Wulflingas - we came to England from the Elbe and

Saxony

we were full of such myth and lore - going back to a time when we

defeated 3 Roman legions in the Teuterburger wald 9AD - Arminius

(Hermann the German as we called him in the 1980's)

spelt it wrong but........ no time to correct before going to school!

THe Rhine figures large in my memory too always felt at home

there....... always travel up and down it when ever I can from the mid

70's until present day

last time was New Year 2002 when I took H skiing in Austria stayed at

Bingen over nigh both ways

Rhine was up to the hotel windows - sat having breakfast with it lapping

against me! surreal tops of the ferry boat ticket office poking out

above the water level

love German Castles German tanks German wine and German blonde women!

so yes - that song does it for me.......... isn't it amazing that the

universe has placed you so precisely here and now so that you can

experience the past of your soul memory!!!!!!!!!!!

What a truly astounding mechanism!!!!!!!!!!!!

you are in precisely the right place at the right time to experience all

your memories!

that is the true miracle !!!!!!!!!!

Panzer Division Wiking!

oder

Adolf Hitler Liebstandart

Das Reich

I built a model Panzer Army in 1984 to 1987 whilst in Germany ! Dave

the German language teacher provided the Americans........ and we fought

many war games over a bottle of Appelkorn! late into the night!

time for school...........

This one has always got me a going! It
