Once in a while, I visit with Bob Jagers, author and D-Day veteran. I enjoy the war stories and the memories of a 99-year-old man who was present on that fateful day from World War II. Not long ago, we spoke about Glenn Miller. He said that his three favorite things back then were getting a letter from his girl and eventual wife, baseball news about his favorite Detroit Tigers, and catching Glen Miller’s music on the radio. We remembered that Glen Miller was born in Iowa on that day in 1904. He tragically disappeared over the English Channel December 1944. His plane was lost en route to Paris, where he was going to play for the troops who had just liberated France. We don’t know much about his disappearance, but there are some reports that his small plane may have been hit by RAF bombers dropping their bombs into the waters of the channel before landing, or the friendly fire theory. In other words, Miller may have been at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Glenn Miller’s influence went beyond music, as any veteran from that period will tell you. He was too old to be drafted at 38, but he joined the service anyway. Miller made a huge difference in the life and times of G.I.s far away and desperately looking for some connection with the homeland.

A movie titled, The Glenn Miller Story, starring Jimmy Stewart and June Allyson was filmed in 1954. It is a great movie to watch and I recommend it wholeheartedly. It is available to rent on Amazon Prime for $3.99.

Mike Bloomberg spent six hundred million dollars on a campaign for President of the United States and all he got for his money was five delegates from American Samoa. That money could have been better spent by giving it to the people of Nashville after the devastating tornadoes.

The Light, the Dark, and the Dusty

Explanation: This colorful skyscape spans about four full moons across nebula rich starfields along the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy in the royal northern constellation Cepheus. Near the edge of the region’s massive molecular cloud some 2,400 light-years away, bright reddish emission region Sharpless (Sh) 155 is left of center, also known as the Cave Nebula. About 10 light-years across the cosmic cave’s bright walls of gas are ionized by ultraviolet light from the hot young stars around it. Dusty blue reflection nebulae, like vdB 155 at lower right, and dense obscuring clouds of dust also abound on the interstellar canvas. Astronomical explorations have revealed other dramatic signs of star formation, including the bright red fleck of Herbig-Haro (HH) 168. Below center in the frame, the Herbig-Haro object emission is generated by energetic jets from a newborn star.
