The Brownie Camera


December 7, 1941


Pearl Harbor























• Pearl Harbor

• On Sunday, December 7th, 1941 the Japanese launched a surprise attack against the U.S. Forces stationed at Pearl Harbor , Hawaii By planning this attack on a Sunday, the Japanese commander Admiral Nagumo, hoped to catch the entire fleet in port. As luck would have it, the Aircraft Carriers and one of the Battleships were not in port. (The USS Enterprise was returning from Wake Island , where it had just delivered some aircraft. The USS Lexington was ferrying aircraft to Midway, and the USS Saratoga and USS Colorado were undergoing repairs in the United States )

• In spite of the latest intelligence reports about the missing aircraft carriers (his most important targets), Admiral Nagumo decided to continue the attack with his force of six carriers and 423 aircraft. At a range of 230 miles north of Oahu , he launched the first wave of a two-wave attack. Beginning at 0600 hours his first wave consisted of 183 fighters and torpedo bombers which struck at the fleet in Pearl Harbor and the airfields in Hickam, Kaneohe and Ewa. The second strike, launched at 0715 hours, consisted of 167 aircraft, which again struck at the same targets.

• At 0753 hours the first wave consisting of 40 Nakajima B5N2 'Kate' torpedo bombers, 51 Aichi D3A1 'Val' dive bombers, 50 high altitude bombers and 43 Zeros struck airfields and Pearl Harbor Within the next hour, the second wave arrived and continued the attack.

5 Star Recipe by Paula Deen



Paula Deen's Chocolate Almond Candies
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/almond-chocolate-balls-recipe/index.html


Ingredients
2 (16-ounce) boxes confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon pure almond extract
1 (14-ounce) package shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts
1/2 Bar of Paraffin Wax Commonly used in Jellie's and Jams
1 (12-ounce) package chocolate chips

Directions

Cream together sugar and butter in a bowl; add milk. Stir in almond extract, coconut, and nuts; mix well. Form candy into 1-inch balls. Place on waxed paper and refrigerate at least 3 hours. Melt chocolate & Paraffin in top of double boiler, stirring well. Remove from heat but allow chocolate to remain over hot water. (If chocolate becomes too thick, return to heat for a minute or so to thin). With a toothpick, dip each ball in chocolate and place on waxed paper until set.

Note: The Paraffin Wax is also known as Baker's wax sold under the name Gulf. Its located by Pectin to help harden the Jams and Jellies.

I will be making different Variations of Paula's recipe. Also Paula has great baking ware with her name stamped on it. Especially her Pie Baking ware.
This recipe was simple and delicious. The best part there was not fussing messing with measuring equipment.
My family enjoy the candies as well. The time to make the candies took 15 minutes to prep. I refrigerated the candies over night.
Also on the paraffin wax cut it to pieces so it will melt nicely with the chocolate. I use the brand
Ghirardelli Chocolate Bittersweet. As you can see they came out beautiful.

Jeannette K. Rook

Lot Notes
Clearly painted at the height of his career, The Happy Family can be regarded as one of the outstanding masterpieces of Bernardus Blommers' oeuvre. His reputation as a painter of dune scenes and seascapes in which figures played a leading role rests on works of this superior caliber. The painting displays the characteristic anecdotal qualities for which his work is so highly appreciated. The subject-matter, a beautifully balanced composition, the colors, tones and its excellent condition make its appearance on the art market a rare event.

Bernard Blommers was the son of a well respected printer and was originally trained as a lithographer. But his interests lay elsewhere and he actively pursued a career as an artist and enrolled in the Academy of The Hague.

While painting on the beach of Scheveningen, Blommers befriended fellow artist Josef Israels. Just like Israels, Blommers frequently went to the beach to find inspiration. Although they shared a fascination for the life of the Dutch fishing people and made it the central theme of their respective oeuvres, both artists had a totally different approach towards their subject matter. Israels had a social-realistic focus and did not hesitate to depict the hardship often experienced by the impoverished fisher-folk. Blommers' representations were more anecdotal. This idyllic scene is characteristic of his conception of traditional fisher family life. The Happy Family depicts a languid evening on the beach, a father in admiration of his small daughter as she plays in the sand. The mother is knitting, perhaps sometimes stealing a glance at the other children that are playing in the surf in the background. To Blommers, children represented happiness and innocence, and he often captured children's play in his pictures. He himself once said that although he saw children by the sea almost everyday, they offered him something new every time. ('Ja, dat schilder ik graag, zulke kinderen aan zee. Ik zie ze bijna iedere dag zoo, en toch altijd weer is 't nieuw, moet ik er even bij stilstaan.' (T. de Liefde-van Brakel, B. J. Blommers (1845-1915), Katwijk, 1993, p. 39).

This carefree character of Blommers' work made him one of the most sought-after and renowned painters of the Hague School. His work and that of his peers was widely collected, not only in The Netherlands but also in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. Dutch dealers and Hague School artists eagerly participated in the major art exhibitions that were organized in these countries and many of Blommers' works found their way into major international collections. So formidable was his artistic reputation that when the artist and his wife visited the United States in 1904 he was received with all honors by President Theodore Roosevelt.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------THE EVENING MEAL

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bernardus Johannes Blommers was born in the Netherlands in 1845. He was a painter of delicate genre compositions, and landscapes. He was one of the most famous painters at The Hague School. Artists of The Hague School worked in Holland from around 1860 to 1900. Like the French Barbizon School, these artists turned away from academic themes based on history or mythology. Instead they made realistic depictions of their immediate surroundings, including rural landscapes, peasant life, beach scenes, and, occasionally, urban streets. They were sensitive to the effects of light and atmosphere, recalling the great tradition of 17th-century Dutch landscape painting. Among the leaders of The Hague School were Jozef Isreals, Willem and Jacob Maris, Hendrik Willem Mesdag, Paul J.C. Gabriel, Bernard J. Blommers, Hendrik J. Weissenbruch, Johannes Bosboom, Willem Roelofs, Anton Mauve and David A.C. Artz.De Hoog was especially noted for his scenes with children and country life with peasants. Blommers became extremely famous in his lifetime placing many paintings in famous museum collections, and private collections. He passed away in 1914 contributing greatly to Dutch art.

NOTED DUTCH ARTIST, J.B. BLOMMERS, DIES; Painter of Joyous Scenes of Peasant Life Succumbs in Amsterdam at 69. HEAD OF DUTCH ACADEMY Author of "The Fishermen's Children" Painted Carnegie's Portrait for Peace Palace at The Hague.


Bernardus Johannes (Bernard Blommers (30 January 1845 in The Hague – 15 December 1914) in The Hague) was a Dutch etcher and painter of the Hague School.[1]

He learned lithography early in his career, and then studied at the Hague Akademie under Johan Philip Koelman until 1868.[2] His early paintings were mostly genre works depicting fishermen and their wives, heavily influenced by Jozef Israƫls.[2] The later works (from about 1890) are more loosely painted, although maritime and genre scenes remained the primary subject matter. His work was critically successful during his lifetime, being sought after by English, Scottish and American collectors.
