I think I was in 8th grade... that would've made me 12 years old... somewhere I'd found a novel containing several stories of Marvel superheroes. There were six chapters in all,many for the most part, the stories were tales of the characters I knew. Spiderman was one. Daredevil was another. The only other thing I remember is that the X-Men were chapter 6. Up until this point of my young, comic-infatuated life, I knew the X-Men as the originals: Cyclops, Beast, Angel, and Marvel Girl, and on routine trips to the fantastic—and unfortunately, now long closed—Great Escape, I'd seen images of the new X-Men. The originals had interested me very little, and the new X-Men had interested me less. It took a while to get to chapter 6 in that book I'd found. But once I did, I was hooked. On a subsequent trip to the Great Escape, I sought out the X-Men, and the issue I happened to select—I can't still see it so clearly—was It was Days of Future Past, Part 1. The image of Wolverine on the cover was awesome. As ...

Commemorating the “Great Escape" Read the complete story and view all photos here : You may have heard of the Great Escape. You may have seen the 1963 Hollywood movie starring Steve McQueen as a United States Air Force officer named Virgil Hilts – the “Cooler King”. And if you’ve seen the movie, you may think that the story is a British and American story. But it’s not. It’s a British and Canadian story. There were no Americans in the North Compound at Stalag Luft III near Sagan (now Zagan), Poland, when the mass breakout occurred. Rather, most of the officers in the compound were members of the Royal Air Force (RAF), Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF), Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) and the South African Air Force (SAAF). Others hailed from nations such as Greece, Norway, the Netherlands, Czechoslovakia, Greece, Lithuania, Poland, Belgium and France. (Keep reading ...

Special “On This Day in Military History”! March 24th – 25th, 1944 – Yesterday and today mark the 70th anniversary of the Great Escape from Luft Stalag III POW camp, located in Sagan, Germany. Stalag Luft III (Stammlager Luft, or main camp for aircrew) was a Luftwaffe-run prisoner-of-war camp during World War II that housed captured air force servicemen. It was in the German province of Lower Silesia near the town of Sagan (now Żagań in Poland), 100 miles (160 km) southeast of Berlin. The site was selected because it would be difficult to escape by tunneling. In the spring of 1943, Squadron Leader Roger Bushell, RAF, conceived a plan for a major escape from the camp, which occurred the night of 24–25 March 1944. Following the escape, the Germans took an inventory of the camp and found out just how extensive the operation had been. 4,000 bed boards had gone missing, as well as the complete disappearance of 90 double bunk beds, 635 mattresses, 192 bed covers, 161 pillow cases, 52 20-man tables, ...
Yesterday I commented on a great post and tribute that a childhood friend made about the Great Escape and I reflected on my fathers journey, courage and sacrifice in the name of freedom and fighting evil. This is part of his mess kit that he scratched into the sides his journey. He was with the first group of US soldiers to go to Europe, the first group to fight Rommel in Africa and the first group to invade Italy. His division suffered the most casualties in the war of any division and I have his Purple Heart for being wounded and his Bronze Star Medal for bravery.

I have not been a fan of David Moyes and from the start thought he was the wrong man to replace Alex Ferguson. As we all know he was on a hiding to nothing following Ferguson. However, are there signs in the United camp that things are changing, Rooneys commitment to the club, Van Persies apparent turn around, and their best performance of the season so far against WBA. Should they manage somehow to get a result against Liverpool on Sunday followed by the Great Escape of Olympiakos in the Champions League could this be a springboard to get them into a top 4 finish? Whatever way you look at it it seems certain that Moyes is going to be there at least to the end of the season and if results over the next few days go right he may just do a Houdini act and save his bacon altogether.
Our hearts are broken here in Albany at the news that Matt Westervelt, our junior ambassador to the 2011 North Country Heart Walk when he was 14, has died. Matt was born with an interrupted aortic arch, and had four surgeries in the course of his too-short life. We remember Matt coming into our office before surgery and talking about his plans to go to the Great Escape that summer, and how he wanted to ask to keep the old heart valve being replaced. Thank you for all your hard work in the fight against heart disease and stroke, Matt. Our deepest condolences to your family and friends.

So I've decided that next summer's big trip will be less park driven and more of an actual vacation. I'm gonna go see some Broadway shows (hopefully Aladdin, Les Mis and Phantom of the Opera) and go to Six Flags New England, Great Escape (also owned by Six Flags) and Lake Compounce. Of course I plan to go to Coney Island and ride the Cyclone and up to Rye Playland to ride the Dragon. Hopefully I'll find someone to accompany me on this excursion.
Gail & I feel we've spent weekend with you, after Great Escape chats w/ Peter Mansbridge (1 on 1) & Michael Enright (Sun Ed).

"The Great Escape" revisited.FOR SOME OF THE VETERANS THIS MAY BE NOSTALGIC.. * All those who have seen this will love this ! Long but read it ! RECENT ARCHEOLOGICAL EXCAVATION DISCOVERY DATING TO WWII - AMAZING PHOTOS... Remember the Steve McQueen movie? Untouched for almost seven decades, the tunnel used in the Great Escape has finally been unearthed. The Germans sealed the 111-yard passage nicknamed Harry by Allied prisoners after the audacious breakout from the POW camp Stalag Luft III in western Poland. Despite huge interest in the subject, encouraged by the film starring Steve McQueen, the tunnel remained undisturbed over the decades because it was behind the Iron Curtain and the Soviet authorities had no interest in its significance. But at last British archaeologists have excavated it, and discovered its remarkable secrets. Many of the bed boards that had been joined together to stop it collapsing were still in position. And the ventilation shaft, ingeniously crafted from used powdered milk contai ...

One more week to sign up so REGISTER now! October 4 - 6 in beautiful New Hampshire.

One of my favorite singers Patrick Watson performs his song "Great Escape" live. Perfect song for a rainy day.
the Great Escape is classic, but I don't consider that a 'Charles Bronson' movie. Fantastic cast.

In the News on the 30th June 2003 - was my Great Escape from the BCHT, free from the durge of bonded working life and to move forward into a new and creative life style. (which best served my artistic temperament) So ten years on I am still watching Jeremy Kyle, the cooking shows, changing rooms, horse racing and the cartoon shows. Who said that retirement is boring. The only thing I dread most is a power cut which stops my TV's from operating. heheheh

Colin's latest Motoring Mayhem article - "Motoring Mayhem - Vole’s Great Escape With yet another birthday looming later this month my thoughts have recently been turning towards retirement. When it comes up in conversation, about half my friends wonder why I haven’t already retired and the other half say I’ll be dead within months of packing it in. The latter half tend to be those who are themselves well past retirement and for some reason or other, whether financial or fear of terminal boredom, are still at work. Needles to say the staff at work are none too happy with the prospect obviously thinking I should continue until I’m carried off the premises in a pine box. ‘R’ has been retired now for 3 years and can’t imagine how she ever had time to work. Her days are packed from one end to the other, so much so that she has to work from long lists so she doesn’t forget anything. This may be my greatest worry about being home permanently as she now even has lists for me. This is wher ...
