Photographs From Hiroshima Peace Park.

We received these photographs of Hiroshima Peace Park by email the other day.  My wife's sister and friend took them on their recent visit to Japan.






 The Cenotaph,  
 A building still standing after the atomic bomb.

There are three peace bells and visitors are encouraged to ring them for world peace.  

We watched the musical Scrooge the other night.  The films message is: Peace on Earth and Goodwill towards all men. 

Do you remember this song?

  1. It's been a while since I watched the Scrooge musical. In fact, Christmas music is slow to be aired this year.

    1. It was years since I watched Albert Finney in the Scrooge musical Valerie. I listen and watch a lot of Christmas music on the musical channels. Vintage is my favourite. Thanks!

  2. Good time to show these Peace Park pictures Dave. Dickens Christmas Carol changed lives for many people when it first came out when employers got the message of goodwill and charity from the book and the story of Scrooge and started giving workers time off to celebrate.

    1. Not forgetting Boxing Day Rachel. When the people in the big houses gave presents or boxes to their servants on the day after Christmas. I think Christmas Carol is still in print. The Victorian social reformers and writers like Dickens always stood up for the poor and needy. Thanks!

  6. How Herbal Medicine Cured me completely. Does anyone still doubt natural herbs? I've seen the great importance of natural supplements and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. I wonder why people still spend their money on surgery, injections and drugs each time they are sick. My Diabetes was totally cured with natural herbs. Earlier this year I was diagnosed type 2 diabetes and my blood sugar was very high, I was recommended to use insulin medication which later have side effect on my health, I decided to stop using insulin medication and was recommended to use Herbal medicine after I read series of testimony of doctor ELINFOH Herbal medicine on the internet, bloggers site and radio stations, I purchased Dr.ELINFOH  herbal medicine for diabetes which he sent to my address through a delivery company and I received the herbal medicine within a couple of weeks  and the doctor directed me how to use the herbal medicine for 21 days. After concluding the herbal medicine I decided to go for a blood test and my blood sugar was detected to be normal, Today I am diabetes free with no side effects. Contact Dr ELINFOH  via  email: drelinfohherbalhome@gmail.com  or Call/Whatsapp +2348110492072 for more information. He said he has herbal remedies for; Hepatitis, Kidney diseases, Heart diseases, Cancers, High blood pressure, Fat reducing, Infertility, Lyme diseases, Herpes Virus, Cold Sores, Shingles, rectum diseases.
