Veterans hold a place in our society that is special. I know that they hold a place in my heart. My father served in WWII with the Marines in the South Pacific. The first action he saw was during the invasion of Okinawa. Later, he was 150 miles from the Japanese mainland when for the first time in his life he saw a mushroom cloud. Dad told me that his unit had already received orders to go the China coast in an effort to surround Japan. Thank God he did not have to go. My younger brother served in the […]
Thanks to History.com for this fascinating history of Mother’s Day in America and around the world. Mother’s Day: Historical Precursors Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele, but the clearest modern precedent for Mother’s Day is the early Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday.” Once a major tradition in the United Kingdom and parts of Europe, this celebration fell on the fourth Sunday in Lent and was originally seen as a time when the faithful would return to their “mother […]
How we feel about Mom through the years. At 6Yrs, “Mommy, I love you.” At 10 Yrs, “Mom, whatever.” At 16, “My Mom is soooo annoying.” At 18, “I wanna leave this house.” At 25, “Mom, you were so right.” At 30, “I wanna go to Mom’s house.” At 50, “I don’t wanna lose you, Mom.” At 70, “I’d give up everything for one more day with my Mom.” Hat/Tip Matt.
South Shields, a coastal town in the northeastern part of Britain on the River Tyne, is celebrating Easter a bit differently this year. Artists and folks from the local community are turning heads with their use of shipping containers to commemorate the Passion of the Christ on Good Friday. So Happy Easter to all our loyal CH 2.0 readers, sit back and enjoy this video.
Yesterday, I ran a shocking and alarming story regarding the violent nature of the Easter Bunny. Following that post, I was troubled by the thought, “why?” Why is the Easter Bunny so incredibly violent? Why has he lashed out at humanity? And, come to think of it, where did he learn his advanced fighting skills? Well, the crack investigative team at the CH 2.0 took the challenge, and set out to answer these questions. We have found a video that explains it. Here it is… I strongly recommend that you avoid contact with the Easter Bunny at all costs. If […]
Matthew 28:1-7 (New American Standard) Jesus Is Risen! 1 Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave. 2 And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. 3 And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. 4 The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men. 5 The angel said to the women, “Do […]
We all think of the Easter Bunny as the kind woodland critter that hides candy for kiddos every Easter. However, a shocking video has surfaced that will cause many to change their perception of the notorious Easter character. It’s awful to see a national icon go bad. I can only imagine what drove the normally docile Easter Bunny to such extremes.
Hello all, the site was down for much of the day, due to a data center problem that impacted several web hosts. The site is back now, and it’s back to what I was going to do in the first place. We have something that I have never tried before; the live feed of the Times Square New Years Eve celebration… I’ll be posting some thoughts on the year that was later, so stay tuned for more! Enjoy!
For over five decades, NORAD has tracked Santa for children all over the US, and now, the world. For more than 50 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa’s flight. The tradition began in 1955 after a Colorado Springs-based Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement misprinted the telephone number for children to call Santa. Instead of reaching Santa, the phone number put kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief’s operations “hotline.” The Director of Operations at the time, Colonel Harry Shoup, had his staff check the radar for indications of Santa making his way south […]

OK, I know it’s a couple days off, but what the heck? Here is some good stuff from Manhattan Infidel!- Matt Free the Turkeys! As Thanksgiving approaches and millions of Americans prepare to travel to visit their loved ones it is time to ask the all-important question: Thanksgiving, why? In keeping with Manhattan Infidel’s official policy of what happens in the crawl space stays in the crawl space providing a forum for diverse viewpoints I now present the Turkey Liberation Army’s take on this holiday. To get this scoop I was blindfolded and driven to a turkey “farm” outside the […]
Here, in it’s entirety is Ronald Reagan’s June 14, 1986 weekly radio address. My fellow Americans: “Today we celebrate Flag Day, the birthday of our Stars and Stripes. As we think back over the history of our nation’s flag, we remember that the story of its early years was often one of hardship and trials, sometimes a fight for simple survival. Such is the story behind our Star-Spangled Banner. It was 2 years into the War of 1812, and America seemed to be teetering on the edge of defeat. The British had already taken our Capital and burned the White […]

Everyone loves Sweet Tarts; those heart shaped candies with the special printed message. However, the printed messages have changed over the years. The Atlantic has a listing of defunct Sweet Tart messages… The Sweetheart is 147 years old. But not all of its cute little sayings have enjoyed quite the same sesquicentennial longevity. The folks from NECCO, the confectionery company that sells 4 million pounds of their traditional heart-shaped candies in the 6 weeks before Valentine’s Day, sent me the full list of their most notable retired sayings.
