What major blunder was made on this date 75 years ago? June 22.

Well Hitman, I did not even know the name of it, had to look it up...and did not remember that it was launched June 22.

(German: Unternehmen Barbarossa) was the code name for Nazi Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union during World War II, which was launched on Sunday 22 June 1941. The operation was driven by an ideological desire to conquer the Western Soviet Union so that it could be repopulated by Germans, to use Slavs as a slave labour force for the Axis war-effort, and to seize the oil reserves in the Caucasus and the agricultural resources throughout the Soviet territories..."

I DID know that both Napoleon and Germany made the same do NOT want to be trying to invade Russia when there is any chance of winter coming on within the next ten years...:'(

I also tried to chat with you but the first was not posted and I thought I hit the wrong key so I tried again and know I hit the right key but it still did not get posted...then you left. Stupid me, thinking these "walls" were private...

I am so sorry, Ladyhorse. I do know that things like that happen in the medical profession, all too common, I am afraid.

Temp. was 96.2, heart racing and chills...weight was 97...talked to PCP and he didn't think I needed to get blood test...he  said if I had sepsis I couldn't get out of bed. He's been my PCP for over thirty years and still doesn't know how fear of hubs can make me tenacious? More proof to Rooster MD's really don't want people to get well. If we weren't sick we wouldn't need them and they lose money. I believe he can hear it in my voice and is waiting/hoping I'll be admitted in the ER so they get more $ for their "firm"!
