    Visited the Red House earlier today in Brookneal, Virginia. Even though Patrick Henry died 217 years ago, I still felt like I was in the presence of greatness. Patrick Henry is one of my heroes. If you've never been there, I recommend a visit.

    It looks like a nice place for a Wal-Mart. Just kidding. I had no idea it was there. I will have to stop by on my visit to Liberty. We passed by James Madison's birth place last week; right off the highway. I mentioned to someone at work, he said "James who?" People have no appreciation for historical significance.

    There's a red house over yonder. That's where my baby stays.

    Cool, used to do a lot of long weekend trips to historical places. Monticello, Williamsburg, Stratford Hall (one of my favorites, since my friend's Mom was a hostess and we got in free!). There are so many places within a couple hours drive with historical significance.

    When I was stationed at NAS/NATC Pax River, we used to recommend our RN & RAF exchange officers visit the Yorktown Victory Center...lol
