Keep calm and carry on milkman
Keep Calm and Carry On by VariousKeep Calm and Carry On was a World War 2 government poster discovered in a dusty box nine years ago. Though it never saw the light of day in 1939 (it was only supposed to go up if Britain was invaded), it has suddenly struck a chord in our current difficult times, now we are in need of a stiff upper lip and optimistic energy once again. Gordon Brown had one up in 10 Downing Street and James May wears a Keep Calm T-shirt on the telly - it is suddenly everywhere. The book is packed full of similarly motivational and inspirational quotes, proverbs, mantras and wry truths to help us through the recession, from such wits as Churchill, Disraeli and George Bernard Shaw. Funny, wise and stirring - it is a perfect source of strength to get us all through the coming months.

The Milkman: The Story behind One of the Most Iconic Images of the Blitz
A pictorial and video celebration of history's coolest kids, everything from beatniks to bikers, mods to rude boys, hippies to ravers. And everything in between. If you've found a photo, video, or photo essay of people from the past looking fantastic, here's the place to share it. Offensive comments include anything about pimping, about people's moms and scoring women. Nobody cares about your sexual impulses, least of all the OP.
So essentially, Hitler had a tantrum and tried to turn London into hell. Beginning in September of , German forces launched an attack on Great Britain, specifically London, dropping bombs left and right. This attack became known as The Blitz, and it lasted from that September to May of the next year. Day and night, German pilots dropped bombs on cities like London with the intention of demoralizing Britain and forcing them to fold as a significant power in WWII. At first, the British government tried to convey an air of indifference and strength — similar to the way an older brother will ignore a younger brother who keeps poking him. A woman or child guards places for about six people.
The one that perhaps represented the fighting spirit of well-mannered Great Britain most clearly was the famous picture taken by a photographer called Fred Morley on October 9, , depicting a milkman going about with his daily business amidst the rubble in London. The raid that took place that night was the 32nd in a row, the United Kingdom being mercilessly bombed night after night.
