#88 – Pearl Harbor Remembrances & Holidays GiftAway


Today is the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese Empire on December 7, 1941.  I start out today’s podcast by remembering the overall events as well as hearing stories from some of the few survivors left.  Plus, there is a surprise at the end of the story that I just learned about today.


We also spend some time looking at two mysteries which are fun reads.  The first Sherlock Holmes novel, A Study is Scarlet, is a great mystery which actually helped to change the way the police investigations are conducted today.  And Becky Wooley’s book, Non Prophet Murders, takes us into the world of churches and how they might – or might not – work.  It’s a book which makes you laugh and think, too.

Or course, both of these books are eligible for the Holiday GiftAwayBe one of the first 10 to correctly answer a question about the Christmas Story from the scriptures, and I’ll send you a FREE AUDIOBOOK from the Narration by George Library of book.  Listen for this week’s question.

#84-For Our Veterans


Sgt. John Yell (back, right)

This Friday is Veteran’s Day.  So, I wanted to honor my fellow Vets with music and reading.  This podcast features a little about the job I used to do for the military, the Armed Forces Medley (all the themes of each of the services), some poetry from Regina Puckett, the story of Sgt. John Yell, the uncle of one of my authors, and the prologue from a book, Undeserved Favor, that will be out in the spring featuring the fictional Sgt. Frank Ballard.  I close with some scripture and commentary that are particularly appropriate for this post-election season.
