It all happened 71 years ago which in one sense seems like forever ago, in another like yesterday. Time seems to condense as one gets older, I guess one's memory becomes selective and things which mean something to you seem closer than things which are unimportant or you just forget that they happened. For those of you who weren't even born then, the film, The Longest Day, represents the occasion very well. Absolutely everyone was in it I think. The cast list sounds like a who's who of the movie world.
I was thrilled that American Pharoah won the Triple Crown on Saturday. I think it's very exciting that
Sole is not easily found, if you wish you could use flounder for this recipe.
