I’ve been sucked into the world of old fashioned tv shows again… this time, a friend of mine has addicted me to Hogan’s Heroes. Oh dear god, where have I been all these years?!! LOL I wish I knew about this show sooner! I’d been watching I love Lucy, and A-Team for so long!
Oh… and am I the only one in love with Klink? Seriously. He thinks he’s so smart, all in command, when he’s horrible for accepting suggestions. XD But that’s what makes him so cute. And no, I don’t care if he’s missing most of his hair. -snort- Wish I could be his OTHER assistant in the office.. cause I know what I’d be doing during lunch breaks. Hurr hurr hurr.. *nose bleeds like a sicko*
I’ve had several dreams now that had Heinz von Westernhagen in them, and now I have a mystery on my hands! The mystery? A tattoo, done while he was still in the Kraigsmarine. Spanning across his shoulder blades, in black and white only, done while traveling to places in Asia.
-sighs- I doubt I’ll EVER really know, I doubt people have photos of him anywhere without a shirt on, never mind during the wars later years and out of uniform. It was pretty strict for higher rankings to have photos taken of them so “relaxed”, but I can keep hoping!

Oh, it’ll get their attention. Their name, looking at their face often, etc. It goes with the saying in some religions, that your “given name, is a powerful tool.”
Have you ever heard from horror movies, that demons covet and protect their “true names”? This is similar! Only with spirits of the past, they’re not afraid of who calls to them. What of it? Fans are cool, people that admire you are cool. It often reminds them that people still love them, even after they’re dead. Sometimes they get depressed too, specially when it’s been hundreds of years and people/society/history has forgotten about them!
So let loose. Speak to them, say a prayer. Like writing a little letter in your head, or on paper, just for them. :) They’ll hear it if you call to them.
a true story of my life
I am forever haunted by this story book. I found a card for my niece earlier this year, have had it appear on my tumblr and facebook at random.. it’s creepy. lol. Still… my favorite version shall remain the “hungry hungry Hitler”.
Starting on Christmas Eve—24 December 1914—many German and British troops sang Christmas carols to each other across No Man’s Land; some Allied soldiers would swear they even heard brass bands joining the Germans in their joyous singing.
At the first light of dawn on Christmas Day, some German soldiers emerged from their trenches and approached the Allied lines, cautiously calling out “Merry Christmas” in their enemies’ native tongues. At first, the Allied soldiers feared it was a trick, but seeing the Germans unarmed they climbed out of their own trenches and shook hands. The men exchanged presents of cigarettes and plum puddings, sang carols and their own native songs. There was even a documented case of soldiers from opposing sides playing a good-natured game of football. In a more somber manner, some soldiers used the short-lived ceasefire: to retrieve the bodies of their fallen comrades who had been left between the lines.
The Christmas Truce of 1914, as it would be known, came only five months after the outbreak of the Great War in Europe. It would become one of the last examples of an outdated notion of war chivalry, something that would die quickly to the modern warfare that was emerging. It was an event that was never repeated—future attempts to recreate the holiday ceasefire were quashed by officers’ threat of being put up against the wall—but it served as heartening proof, however brief, that beneath the brutality of war, a soldier’s essential humanity could endure.
tumblr gets a lot more fun when you stop taking your blog and notes and followers so seriously and you just do what you want and not care if people dont like it
…Which is exactly why mine is so quiet.. most of the time. LOL. But really, I scare away 60% of visitors, simply because I post or repost Nazi photos. What’s wrong with being interested in history and a country? Doesn’t that just make you scared, and running at the first sign of something you didn’t even take the time to ask about?
Christmas: HISTORY STYLE!!!
I made some ornaments this year with mod podge, some nice photos, and hung them up nicely on the tree. <3
I still think I like the Afrika one the best. The gold looks nice together with the ink and palm tree.
Merry Christmas to everyone this year! See you all in the New Year!
Everyone’s here for Christmas this year! JOY~!!
I stitched the boys names into some stockings for them so they feel comfortable, and involved. We love them lots. Yes, WE. My room mate and I are both very close to the guys now (Max, Heinz and Kurt.. and now Springer too!) A very Merry Christmas. <3
More photos to come!
