    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    This sunday I was to forest near home. Now is impossible to dig in daylight, so I was in forest from 5 AM till 8:30 AM. Not mutch finds but I was there first time, not bad for first time. In WWII there was airplane dogfight, result is 4 Soviet ShVAK 20 mm empty casings.

    Why no digging in daylight? Too hot or too many mosquitos?
