Military Monday.

September 7, 2009
Red, white & blueberry cupcakes by Glam Nest.


So here we are, Labor Day/Military Monday, and the first MM of September. As I’ve mentioned before, each week I’ll be featuring a patriotic/red, white & blue cupcake (or cake, or dessert) along with the names of soldiers who are casualties of the wars we’re currently involved in. Military Monday is a popular trending topic on Twitter (#MilitaryMonday) and a few blogs are doing it as well now. This is my 12th week being a part of it and I’m very proud to be. If you’d like to see the rest of the MM posts, then by all means, view the archives.

I also encourage you to participate in Military Monday, whether it be on Twitter, Facebook, MySpace or your own blog. It isn’t too much trouble to just make a quick post or status update honoring those who’ve died for our country. And if you or someone you know has a beautiful patriotic dessert you think should be featured, then please e·mail me.

A happy Labor Day to you and yours, and please remember those who don’t have the luxury of a beer and a barbecue today.

  1. I have been browsing on-line greater than three hours as of late, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.

    It’s pretty price enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made just
    right content as you probably did, the internet will be
    a lot more helpful than ever before.

  2. Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it
    was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.

    Do you have any points for newbie blog writers?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

  3. My developer is trying to convince me to move to
    .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of
    the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less.
    I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about
    a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.

    I have heard excellent things about
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into
    it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

  4. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  5. What i don’t realize is actually how you are no longer actually much
    more well-liked than you may be right now. You’re very intelligent.
    You recognize therefore considerably with regards to this matter,
    made me individually believe it from numerous numerous angles.
    Its like men and women aren’t involved unless it’s one thing to do with Girl gaga!
    Your personal stuffs nice. All the time care for it up!

  6. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  7. Hi there! This post couldn’t be written any better!
    Reading through this post reminds me of my previous room mate!
    He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this article to him.
    Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for

  8. Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to grasp so much
    approximately this, such as you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you simply can do with a few percent to pressure the message home a
    little bit, but other than that, that is fantastic blog.
    A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

  9. When someone writes an paragraph he/she keeps the image of a user in his/her brain that how a user can be aware
    of it. So that’s why this article is amazing. Thanks!

  10. Hello my family member! I wish to say that
    this article is awesome, nice written and come with approximately all important
    infos. I’d like to look more posts like this .
