    The first video is when is when we first encountered the German tank destroyer (the Stüg), American soldiers fended it off with a bazooka and picked off any straggling German soldiers with their rifles/crew served weapons. 
The second video shows a German bunker with an antitank gun, it took out our Sherman tank, but the position was taken care of by our infantry and other tank, the Hellcat.

    The God Stone St Luke's, Formby, Merseyside 
Os grid reference: SD 2800 0671. At the western side of the town of Formby, Merseyside, close to the seashore and just along St Luke’s Church Road, stands the parish church of St Luke and, almost hidden in the churchyard (west side) is The God Stone, a small oval-shaped stone that is inscribed with a thin cross standing upon some steps. It is also known as The Corpse Stone or The Cross Stone. The present 19th century church stands on a pagan site, but probably from about the early 10th century it was settled by Vikings from Ireland or perhaps the Isle of Man; the stone being placed there at that time, or maybe earlier? Also of interest in the churchyard is the wooden cross, and in the church porch the 15th century gravestone of a local giant! The seaside town of Southport is 6 miles to the north on the A565 while Crosby is 5 miles south on the same road. Liverpool city centre is 10 miles to the south.
The God Stone stands at the west-side of the churchyard beneath some trees. It is 1 foot 6 inches high and is oval in shape, but below ground it becomes a short stumpy shaft which tapers away. It was apparently moved to its present position in 1879. In the early 10th century Formby (Fornebei) was a Viking settlement and a pagan one, but by about 960 the site was Christianised and, later in the 12th century a chapel was established, which would become St Luke’s. There were at least two churches on this site previous to the present-day church, which was built in 1855. It would, therefore, seem that the God Stone became a sort of marker or “rebus” to which the newly converted could ‘congregate around’ and be baptised “at” by Christian missionaries. At some stage, maybe a few centuries later, a Calvary cross was carved onto the stone by missionaries (as a representation of Christ). The curious little stone with its steps below a thin incised cross which has a circle or orb at the top (perhaps a Norse runic symbol) that ‘might’ signify commitment to Christ and ‘the climb up the steps to the cross’, and the nearness to heaven and then ‘eternal life’ (the afterlife).

It has been said that well-behaved women rarely make history.
Ironically, eighty percent of history was written by ‘anonymous’ – often thought to be women. 
If this is true, well, it’s time for a do over.
It’s time, indeed, to misbehave.
Six stories of history’s most fascinating characters with a twist. From the Nine Days Queen to the life of Alexander the Great, read about things that may have been going on outside the margins, all told from her point of view. 
Because his story? 
Well, that’s overdone. 
It’s time to write history from her perspective.

    The Portrait of Madame X is a study of contradiction. The subject, a Parisian socialite named Virginie Amélie Avegno Gautreau, is shown wearing a black velvet gown while slightly leaning on a wooden table. Her creamy, white skin is a striking contrast to not only her dress, but the dark brown background. The dress itself hides most of her body, but also sensually emphasizes her bust and shoulders. . . . 
Gautreau was the Kim Kardashian of her day. She was famous for her beauty and many artists vied for the honor to capture it on canvas. When John Singer Sargent was finally granted permission, he painted this portrait without commission. However, his hard work paid off. The scandal is caused at the 1884 Paris Salon helped to boost Sargent's career in Britain and America.

    A large archway leads into the inner sanctuary at a long abandoned church. It is believed the building was entirely abandoned shortly after the English Reformation. This approximate timescale is backed up by the mature oak tree growing from within what was once the nave.⁣⁣

    Queen Emma of Hawaii (1836-1885) and Queen Victoria of England (1819-1901) began their friendship through letter writing not long after the death of prince Albert. Their tender exchanges after Emma asked Victoria to be her only son's godmother began some of the most touching of their correspondence. In 1862, Emma wrote to thank her for the baptismal gift, a silver christening cup, but also to inform her that the baby had died only days after his baptism in Hawaii. Victoria wrote back: "as a mother you will understand how fully I am able to appreciate the depth of your grief." Then, in reference to Albert's death, she added "as a wife I can sincerely hope that you may be spared the heavier blow which has plunged me into lifelong sorrow but which makes my heart tenderly alive to all the sorrows of others." Very sadly, exactly one year after Victoria wrote that letter, Emma wrote back: "God has visited me with that great trouble... you said you hoped I might be spared." Her husband had died suddenly, leaving Emma a childless widow. Their friendship continued for many years after this and Emma even visited Victoria in England. We can only imagine the bond these queens forged while grieving together for their lost loved ones.
