Word-of-Day-Challenge-Resolution

resolution

Image resolution is the detail an image holds.
~~~~~

Most of my images are…

  …600 pixels on the long side

with a minimum file size.

I do lose image quality but it saves

a great deal of space at WordPress’ end.

For example these two images

are 42 and 60 kb respectively.

I have become a little more prudent

of what and when I eat.

Remembrance-Day-2019

~~~~~

At 11 AM, on November 11th, 1918

War ceased in Europe.

The guns of the Western Front fell silent

after more than four years

of continuous warfare.Since then November 11 has always

been remembered as

Red Poppy, Armistice or Remembrance Day.

When we started daylight saving time

a few decades ago, there was some discussion

about remembering ‘an hour earlier’.

On the other side was a discussion that

either Australia had daylight savings time

during World War I, or it was

daylight saving in Europe.

I’m not sure if answer was found to that debate.

Now its a case of

Lest We Forget

at the eleventh hour,

of the eleventh day,

of the eleventh month.

Today is remembered with a

Poppy from the Somme Battlefields,

a scene displayed on a water tower

at Pozières.

And the Last Post at Menin Gate, Ypres.

Recently I discovered that the

Menin Gate Lions

actually belong to Australia….a 1936 gift,

  to the Australian War Memorial

from the Mayor of Ypres.

This year the Australian War Memorial has

loaned them back to Ypres.

~~~~~

manual

relating to or done with the hands.
a book giving instructions or information.
“a computer manual”

~~~~~

Although not quite the manual

I was thinking  of…

…this booklet does provide similar  information

in as much as it directs visitors to particular graves

in Western Front Cemeteries.
