Military Monday.

September 14, 2009
Beautiful patriotic cake by sugarnsweets


So another Military Monday is here and this time it comes just after September 11th. Military Monday, for anyone who isn’t familiar, is a way of supporting and honoring our troops. A few months ago, Yoyo asked me to do it with her and I was totally down with the idea. I decided in order to tie it in with my blog, I’d show pictures of patriotic baked goods or foods along with listing the names of our fallen soldiers. If you’d like to see past entries, take a look around the archives. I also encourage you to do your own Military Monday tribute.

This week, since like I said it comes just after 9/11, I’d like to take a moment to also remember the 2,998 people who perished that day in 2001 and all the workers and heroes who gave up days and weeks of their lives to be down there  (including my dad), working to find survivors, ultimately to get sick themselves of 9/11 related illnesses, some of whom who have since passed away. I myself was in Manhattan that day at school and I can tell you it was the most terrifying day of my life. I was on the first train out of Penn Station that afternoon. As the girlfriend of a New York City Police officer and the daughter of an FDNY-EMS Lieutenant, I take great pride in these professions and all that they do for us, both in times of trouble like 9/11 and times of peace, just as I take great pride in our military and all they do… again, both in times of trouble and times of peace. Last year I posted some pictures from the  National WTC Memorial & Museum, if you’d like to view them then click here.

If you have any photos of red, white & blue or patriotic cakes, I’d love to use them in a future Military Monday post. Please send them to me along with a link or e·mail I can give credit to.

  9. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  10. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
