I received this beautiful symbolic picture from my Son for my 75th birthday, and I would like to share it with you...

I know that time has a way of moving quickly, and I wonder where all the years went. I also know that I lived them all, and thinking back sometimes makes me feel very tired and old.
Life goes by quickly, so, do what you can today. Say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember, and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past.
Thank you my children.

Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet

"Oh! What a tangled web we weave
When at first we practice to deceive!"

The famous quotation from Marmion of the historical poet and novelist Sir Walter Scott.

He was born on 15 August 1771 in Edinburgh, and died 21 September 1832, Melrose, Scotland.
Deception is the act of convincing another to believe information that is not true, or not the whole truth.

Yalta Conference (1945)

What was left off from this short video is the agreement of the three leaders that triggered the atom bombs for Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945, the Iron Curtain for Europe, and later on the Korean, Vietnamese and the Cold Wars.
