Mother’s Day

Of all the jobs in the entire world, being a mother has to at the same time be the most rewarding and the least rewarded. Where would any of us be without our mothers? I know I owe a huge debt in how I turned out to my mother, so on this Mother’s Day, let them know how we truly feel about them.

May Day U.S.S.R.

Each May 1st, Communist countries used to celebrate with long military parades. Known as May Day in the former U.S.S.R., it was a chance to show its citizens its military might. Much less common today due to changes to the Iron Curtain, more openness, etcetera, it was traditionally quite the sight to see.
