Advocating on Behalf of the American Military and Defense on the War on Terror

WOODBRIDGE, N.J.  Michael and Olympia DeNittis literally spent a lifetime together in New Jersey, and died just hours apart this week.

As CBS 2’s Jessica Schneider reported the Woodbridge, N.J., couple was laid to rest on Friday and will now be together forever.

Michael DeNittis, 94, and Olympia DeNittis, 95, met after their Italian immigrant parents arrived in America.

“They were together for 67 years in marriage; however, they were childhood sweethearts,” said their granddaughter, Ann Marie McDonald.

Michael and Olympia DeNittis grew up in the same neighborhood, and their family said they were never much more than a block apart. That was the way Olympia planned to keep it.

But then three years ago, Michael was diagnosed with cancer.

“She said, ‘What am I going to do without you?’” McDonald said. “And he said, ‘You’ll find your way.’”

But three weeks ago, it was Olympia who caught pneumonia. She passed away early Sunday morning.

It was unexpected, as Michael was the one with terminal cancer. But he did not want to die.

“I knew that she knew that he loved his life and wanted to continue living it,” McDonald said. “So I think she wanted to predecease him, to some extent, to kind of welcome him into heaven.”

Just one day later on Monday afternoon, McDonald said goodbye to her grandfather, knowing he was rejoining his wife.

“I would love to have each of them here with me today,” she said. “But since that’s not possible, this was the next best thing.”

The family took comfort in the fact that Michael and Olympia DeNittis will never know the pain of living without each other.

The couple’s funeral took place at the same church where they were married 67 years ago.

A love story. Pure and Simple. I hope to emulate it - many, many years into the future. MM


Here's an idea I read about: let's email a copy of the constitution around to each other. Maybe the NSA will see it. 

But seriously, folks....

"The National Security Agency and its UK counterpart GCHQ have been developing capabilities to take advantage of "leaky" smartphone apps, such as the wildly popular Angry Birds game, that transmit users' private information across the internet, according to top secret documents.

The data pouring onto communication networks from the new generation of iPhone and Android apps ranges from phone model and screen size to personal details such as age, gender and location. Some apps, the documents state, can share users' most sensitive information such as sexual orientation – and one app recorded in the material even sends specific sexual preferences such as whether or not the user may be a swinger."

California residents claim they saw strange lights in the sky on New Year’s morning.

While federal authorities say there has been no “unusual flight activity” in the area, those who witnessed the unidentified lights say they were not mistaken about what they saw, KXTV reports.

"I seen like six bright orange colored lights, Kaye Pinlac, from Stockton, Calif., said. "And they were almost like in a diamond or triangle shape. It was weird. And so they started just separating."

The lights were spotted by residents from Placer County to the Hollywood Hills. Each witness had a different way of describing what they saw.

Melissa Harris-Perry, a ultra left-winger on MSNBC (sorry, that was redundant) mocked Mitt Romney's new baby grandchild, who happens to be black.

Harris-Perry doubled down after the shock and outrage piled up, with another snarky comment which I won't detail.

 And then she did something really outlandish.

She actually apologized.

"I am sorry. Without reservation or qualification. I apologize to the Romney family. #MHPapology," Melissa Harris-Perry tweeted.

As I tweeted a few minutes ago "Please note that conservatives DID NOT call for your firing. The appropriate response = apology.
