SUNDAY 18th JULY 2010 10:15(BST)

THIS DAY IN WW2 (18.7.40)
In the British colony of Burma... In response to Japanese pressure and because of their present weakness, the British government closes the Burma Road to the passage of supplies to the Chinese Nationalists. In reality this is a political move that has little impact on the Sino-Japanese war.

In the United States... Roosevelt is nominated as the Democratic Party's presidential candidate without any real opposition. Henry Wallace is chose to run for vice-president.

TODAY IN MY LIFE
Woke up at 9am, almost unheard of for an early riser like me. I must of needed it! Family quality time will be interspersed with recording hypnotic CDs, laundry and blogging.

TODAY'S THOUGHT

TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I appear to have found the method, not to eradicate darkness from my soul but to prevent its rule.

TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
Where can you go that will leave memory behind?

TRIVIA
One of the most dramatic suicides ever happened in 1974 when female newscaster Chris Chubbuck shot herself in the head during a Prime-Time news bulletin on Florida TV station WXLT-TV. She died 14 hours later.

TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
I will keep my restless mind to firmly tp heel using the lead of concentration.
