Today was the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day landings in France. Most of us have never seen war or how it affects those who were there. We all watch the movies of the heroic events from all over Europe and the true stories that make good viewing. We sympathise with the people in the movies and on the edge of our seats at the Gunfights, putting to the back of our minds that these are based on Facts and actual accounts given by those who were there.
In the Film the longest day it gives the names of some of the Heroes and the actor who played them As D-Day was a multiple assault on Europe and had to be won they Attacked them with almost everything we had The movie portrays only a small part of the actual Day and the various beaches and the troops dropped behind the lines along with the resistance they all had their part to play to help establish the downfall of the Nazi oppressors.
I was a member of the Territorial Army, 105 battery of the 102 Regiment of the Royal Artillery for a few years and got my training in Woolwich in London, i thankfully have never seen a battle and the only time i fired a gun was in training. I am Proud of all the men and woman who fought so bravely between 1939 and 1945 and not just this day which is probable the most important day in the war.
Each and every one of our servicemen and Women deserve our Respect, gratitude and thanks for what they have given to us, we will never know exactly what that is as we all take what we have or get for granted.
So next time you see a ex-serviceman collection for Erskine Hospital, Help for heroes, Mark Wright foundation just remeber you have the money to spend because of them SO give them Some
New Recruits before Passing out Parade 1987 including me
Fast on the heals of the last purchase of a nokia 1020 i got my daughter the nokia 925
Although not the great camera on the 1020 the photos are still great and My daught has been playing around with it and uses it to its full potential The cost of this phone on “pay as you go” is £499 but on the “one Plan” on the three network it is £28 per month on a 2 year contract which give you all you can eat data with tethering enough call time to stay on the phone for almost 41days continuous
I know phones are a very personal thing you either like it or you dont but with me now having 3 nokia phones purchased for family members it is growing on me The picture quality on the 925 and the 1020 is better than my Samsung Galaxy S4 but i do like my phone But the battery life is not as good as it states not in my household anyway (due to excesive use of youtube videos ) it does tend to get rather hot after a bit of time
So if you cant decide on a phone make sure to check them out in store as well as looking at the full specification on the internet as well as reviews and forums this will give you a much more better idea of the phone you want to get
My wife was due a upgrade for her mobile phone and i managed to talk her into a Nokia 1020 this was based on a few things the camera , ease of use , not wishing to pay upfront costs for another brand (samsung) looking through the Three network at available phones and contracts “the one plan” had many phones at the same price of contract but what got me was the price range for the actual phone some as cheap as £120 on “pay as you go” but £36 a month on “the one Plan” But there are some stupid people out there
the Nokia 1020 is worth £549 this is the same as the Galaxy S4 (Upfront £29)
The phone is Bright yellow and has a large 4.5″ screen the picture quality is absolutely brilliant and bright very easy to see and great for watching videos
The camera although it is a 40mb pixel there is a little delay between pressing ant the photo being taken but i have not investigated the settings yet
All the contacts seem to be either associated with facebook or windows live it is very intuitive to use and easy to get to grips with (the only thing i miss from android is the pulldown for Quick access to switch features on and off) But its now my phone so dont bother me too much The wife has complained that it does not have a “Normal contacts list” She is making good use of it so far
From setting up and configuring the phone i found it great and would definetly recomend it as a great option for your next phone
