    My cousin Dennis just digitized and uploaded a video of our grandfather talkng about his pictures from WW2.  So, I made a podcast....

    It was my pleasure Dave! These tapes don't last forever, so when I found it and purchased a cheap, but effective gizmo from China to transfer right to my computer, I jumped on it. It's awesome to hear you mention some of the stories about him that I've never heard before. Another thing I will do id scan each pic that's in the video ( I have them here), so they're clear and archived. I also have the certificate that he received in 1941 for attending the ceremony for the first time crossing the equator like he mentions in the video. I'll try and get that uploaded as well.

    You must have heard about the Philippines and meeting up with the cannibalistic tribe of head hunters, and how he traded with them, giving them pots and pans. I think he received the shrunken head in return. Cool. Then how they were attacked by a 4' Pigmy bushman shooting his blowgun at the 1300 ton or so Cruiser! Bravery or stupidity....

    It's fascinating to find some of his pics online ( from other angles) from others that were on the ship and in Hawaii. I'm still trying to get a hold of them.

    Anyway, I'm glad I was able to preserve it so all of our families can remember him.....

    Take care and thanks for this podcast ( down dere) haha

    Much love
