Plz give me your best audios, from the US a/b the Normandy landings

I ran over my phone yesterday, the nice guys at the phone shop were able to recover most of my stuff . Googled hoping to replace my audio, but I kept getting stuff from DDay20.it is ready the radio broadcast I'm looking for.
Thx

Today's Google doodle & me realizing I'm Cornish

I have never had a scone I liked, maybe the US Midwest bakers do/use different ingredients .


Today's doodle is an image of 2 scones (go look I'll wait)

If I were to find an authentic Scottish scone, I'd go. Cornwall style, jam first then the clotted cream. The image on the doodle right makes more sense to me.

snip-"In Cornwall this is heavily disputed. They say the jam must go on first, the better to protect the cream from the warm scone, which would otherwise simply melt the cream. They have a point, but Iíve always taken my cream tea the Cornish way, undoubtedly due to many summers spent in Cornwall as a child where I consumed endless amounts of cream tea."

snip-"The Queen recently attempted to settle this ongoing debate when she revealed she eats her cream tea the Cornish way, jam first. But even an intervention from the Queen herself couldnít put an end to the argument, and both sides still claim theirs is the right way."

more there.


Then the reddit forum Casual UK realized that Google was trying to start a civil war.

After reading this, I made a pot of Yorkshire Gold Tea, and put Juniors of NY CheeseCake on next week's grocery list. If Google puts a doodle up of the types of cheesecake, well given how touchy & tichy things here in the US are at the minute, itl be an issue.


I'm going to take my cuppa outdoors and enjoy the improved weather.
