The poppies are coming out! In previous years, I have been excited just to have one...but this year we have quite a few! This time of year always makes me think of our ANZACs...and living in Europe makes the story even more meaningful. For those of you who are not familiar with the acronym, ANZAC stands for Australia and New Zealand Army Corp. In 1915, the Corp fought in the doomed allied expedition on the Gallipoli Peninsula. Eight thousand Australians were slaughtered on the beach and steep cliffs before the allies finally withdrew.
