My boss texted me tweet made by the U.S. Army today —

“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God such men lived”. — George S. Patton

Great quote. Total agreement.

Preamble to the U.S. Constitution [the “mission statement” of document founding out federal democratic-republic]: We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Personal nerdy milestone: after 1,348 days of playing “Marvel PuzzleQuest” game app on two different smartphones (spending more money and time on this time-waster than I should), finally passed the *one million Iso-8* threshold. It means nothing in the real world, but I feel a miniscule notion of “accomplishment” over it. I suppose.

Now, hoing to see if I can save up “Command Points” so I start get ahold of certain 5-star character covers I need for my “stable” of characters.
