In Flanders Field the poppies grow...

I don't know what it is about World War II that fascinates me so much.  I love reading books about it (I just finished D Day by Stephen Ambrose and now I'm reading his other book Citizen Soldier soon to be followed by Band of Brothers),  I love watching movies about it and of course I love watching shows about it. Thank you history channel. 
Even though today is Veterans Day and it's more about World War I than it is about World War II I felt it was appropriate to celebrate today buy buying Band of Brothers on Blu-ray! I might add that it was originally $75  but it was on sale at Best Buy since it was a new release and we had a coupon for $20 bucks off so we ended up getting it for $30 bucks.  That's less than the DVD set costs at Costco. Woot! So I want to thank Best Buy for helping us celebrate Veterans Day.

I always think of underwater forms of life when people talk about blu-ray. Wet, rubbery, slippery, and digital. yes.

Michael you are a man after my own heart! And $30?!? Way to go bargain hunter. I totally ordered Citizen Soldiers just the other day. I think I read everything Stephen Ambrose ever wrote because I used all his books as sources for my last undergrad paper.

I'm so going home and watching BoB tonight. Oh man I want Winters so bad.

The most awesome thing is that we saw the Blu-ray at newbury comics for 89.99. That made me feel good we got it for $30! :D
