BLOGPOST #2,024 AT THE AICP-END


Sorry for being late—we remember the sacrifices of the Allies who landed on the shores of Occupied Europe during World War II 72 years ago
Century City, CA, 06-06-2016 Monday: I am sorry for being late today; I suffered a DUI arrest over the weekend that incapacitated me for about 48 hours.  By the time, I was able to make it back home and to the keyboard, well, I lost numerous precious hours in composing a blog for a very important day, June 06, 2016 in remembrance of the Allied sacrifice landing in Occupied Europe in 1944. 
The sad thing about modern times is that we have an atrocious education system, one that leaves pertinent information on American history to the first two years of college—if people are fortunate enough to make it to a two-year college—instead of teaching history beginning in grammar school. 
I remember learning, whom the presidents were, what they did, and whether they achieved success or they failed miserably.  Now, however, schools teach a bastardized, cannibalized version of history that makes the United States appear to be the villain and I have to say that not only does it upset me, it is the primary reason why our country finds itself in the mess in which, it does.  
What has happened to our country?
I have explained to the readership that my family was socialists back in Greece but things were so bad there during World War II and in the aftermath of the conflict in which, several sides battled for supremacy.  Had the British not made a stand there against the communists, Greece most likely would have seen a variant of its flag with the oppressive hammer-and-sickle stuck onto the cross or across the blue and white bars. 
When my family realized the error of their ways, they managed to get out and obtain passage to the United States where they could begin anew.  They banished their past ties to socialism and managed to make it through the immigration process. 
Even though they never quite gave up their ways, they became loyal Americans and defended the nation in every way possible by being proud citizens who put the flag of their new home country above that of the one they fled. 
What they told me is that even though the United States did not fight for Greece, had the Americans not landed in massive numbers on the shores of Normandy in conjunction with their Allies, the Brits and Canadians primarily, the Axis would have won the victory that would have led to the enslavement of the world.  The blood of the Allies freed the nations of Europe as well as those occupied by other members of the Axis in other parts of the world and for that, we would be forever grateful. 
Friends, I urge all of you to commemorate the brave deeds by men most likely trembling with fear, to board their assault craft and cross to the beaches the military brass assigned them all the while under constant bombardment.  Artillery shells, mines, beach obstacles, and the present chattering machine guns of defenders determined to stop the threat at the water’s edge took a horrible toll.  Men fell beneath the waves, burdened by their gear that outweighed them while others died in misery on the beaches.  Still, atop the bodies of those who went before them, the Allies managed to claw a way onto the beach and then to hold it against the Germans who allowed them to do it. 
D-Day will always be a special day for all Europeans who lived under the tyranny of the Nazis, people such as those living in Greece, a long way away from the French coastline, who underwent horrendous privation at the hands of a barbarous oppressor.  Greece could have fallen beneath the sway of an equally evil oppressor, the Soviet Union, but because the Western Allies took a stand to drive the Nazis back from whence they came, Greece became a free and prosperous nation. 
Again, things were not good after the war and we had to fight our own insurgency led by communists who wanted a government loyal to ‘Uncle Joe’ Stalin but thanks to the sacrifices of the Allies 72 years ago, Europe has been at peace for more than 70 years, something no one has seen in modern times.  Thank you, I will see you tomorrow.    
Thank you,
Tiresias

This is me as a young chef at an awards dinner at the Bon Adventure Hotel in the 1980's when I was working there as the Night Sous Chef's Assistant. I began cooking in the 1960's in my native Greece before moving to Los Angeles, California, in the early 1970's. I apprenticed under an ACF Master Chef shortly thereafter and now here I am. I still am involved in professional foodservice as an instructor.

MORE TO COME FROM THE ROLLING STONES



MONDAY, JUNE 06, 2016
In 1996, the Rolling Stones released a unique live album for them, “Stripped.”  As the Grateful Dead sometimes released acoustic live albums, this album is akin to those as it features numerous of the band’s greatest songs plus several relatively unknown or seldom-performed tunes, too.  This is a great album, one featuring the band at their acoustic live best and that is why we urge you to use our link so you can redirect your browser to Amazon.com where you can pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that works for you—you can thank us later!
