What if…What if…What if?

Screen Shot 2015-02-06 at 8.13.40 AMImagine the possibilities…

Of course you know by now that the “what if” questions drive me nuts, particularly the well-worn: what if Stonewall had lived to fight at Gettysburg.

But I have to confess that I am really taking to these entirely anachronistic images popping up here and there featuring soldiers from one era pictured with soldiers/equipment from another. There is even a series going around with Star Wars gear paired with real images from WWII. It’s just plain fun.

Well I suppose the boys in gray would have made good use out of some mechanized armor. Ahhhh….what if…

Screen Shot 2014-08-21 at 9.17.46 AMYou’ll see from this shot of the Table of Contents that we are featuring some mighty fine work this month. I encourage you to SUBSCRIBE immediately. There is a miniscule monthly $4.97 fee, which is a lot less than most things you buy throughout the day (for example, a hamburger, a pack of smokes, a drink at a bar, and in some places, a gallon of gas). And unlike most things, these published resources last a lifetime. A good investment. If you a already a member – well great. LOG ON and enjoy.

Oh, and one last thing, the AI monthly publication is mobile responsive. So if you insist on staring at your iPhone (or other fine device) all day anyway, you might as well be reading something worthwhile. The mobile version supports all the multi-media functions including audio and video, plus it’s entirely searchable. Neat.
