------ Welcome to RTMemo ------

Another short edition this week, to mirror the short work week in the US.

Monday was Memorial Day, a time for reflection and appreciation of all those who have served America and paid the ultimate price. Many other nations have similar holidays, and many Southern US states have separate Memorial Days to honor the Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War.

Learn more about the holiday at the History Channel's site:

How about articles, editorials, classified ads, photo galleries, show and convention listings, and a directory of collector clubs?

My Virtual Model
MSN's eShop offers a handy service for people shopping for clothing online - a virtual model of yourself, so that you can see how the clothes fit you. Of course, this also makes a handy "toy" for people wanting to see how "they" would look if they lost ten or twenty pounds, etc.

(Special thanks to "Madman" for pointing out this site!)
