The National WWII Museum is intent on telling the story of the American Experience in the war that changed the world.  Dedicated in 2000 as The National D-Day Museum and designated by Congress as America's National WWII Museum, its mission is to learn why the war was fought, how it was won, and just what it means today.  This museum celebrates the American Spirit, the teamwork, optimism, undaunting courage and endless sacrifice of the men and women who fought on the battlefront and the Home Front.

For more information, call 877-813-3329 or 504-527-6012 or visit www.nationalww2museum.org. Follow them on Twitter at WWIImuseum or visit their Facebook fan page.

The Museum's six-acre campus and pavilions will offer an opportunity to learn fascinating stories and personal accounts, see spectacular restored WWII aircraft, and enjoy a hands-on educational museum experience.  Check out a broad variety of artifacts that comprised the "big guns" of American military might. These include a restored B-17G Flying Fortress, B-25J Mitchell, SDB-3 Dauntless, TBM Avenger, P-51D Mustang, Corsair F4U-4 and an interactive submarine experience based on the final mission of the USS Tang.

This world-class museum is a place where future visitors can gain a fuller appreciation of what so many Americans achieved in World War II and can reflect on what today's generation of warfighters continue to do for us every day."

Terminator Genisys

Pictured:  Scenes from Genisys/Arnold Schwarzenegger VAV!/August 2, 2015/Contributed by Star in her Eyes This summer, old franchises are being brought back with a vengeance. Earlier this summer dinosaurs came back to haunt our nightmares, and now the robots are back and they want the human race dead. Both a reboot and a continuation of the original Terminator story, Genisys, focuses on what happens when we change our own time lines and that dispels the myth of fate. In the future, humans are struggling in the War Against the Machines, but John Connor, armed with knowledge of the future, can finally turn the tide. But as always, plans go awry and Kyle Reese must travel to the past to save John's mother from the Terminator that has been sent to kill her. What Kyle finds isn't the world he expected because the past has been rewritten.

BACON AND AVOCADO PASTA SALAD RECIPE

  VAV!/July 26, 2015/Contributed by Bobby of the Blog Chef During the summer a good macaroni salad recipe is the perfect side dish to serve with almost any type of dinner. This bacon and avocado pasta salad has a little different flavor than you would find in the average pasta salad. It gets most of this flavor because of the dressing. The dressing combines ingredients such as mayonnaise, thyme, lemon zest and lemon juice to create a rather unique flavor. This recipe does require a little bit of prep work but it is very easy to prepare. You can serve this as a side dish with grilled chicken or steak or even serve it as the main course. Enjoy. Adapted from damn delicious. 1/3 cup olive oil Cooking Instructions:Step 1: To prepare the dressing- in a food processor combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar and thyme. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Turn the blender on and add the olive oil in a slow stream until emulsified. Set aside.Step 2: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
