Today would have been Chuck Philllips' 72nd birthday. Last year we proposed that this would be a good day to remember Chuck and other forumites that have passed on such as Norm, Ken, Dave, Meer and many others who have passed the bar.
As Spindrift posted last year:
Let's take a moment to do something to remember them all by helping others. If you can, donate money to a good cause. Spend some time helping someone else. Pass along those items that to you aren't needed, but might be helpful to someone else. Introduce someone to the wonder of wooden boats.A paladin is the prototypical "knight in shining armour," a hero of sterling character and courage, who rights wrongs and defends the weak and oppressed. The word comes from the Latin word palatinus ("attached to the palace") - compare palatine. The original paladins of legend appeared as the heroes of the Chanson de Roland and of the other romances of chivalry which told of the legendary court of King Charlemagne.
