Military Monday.

July 25, 2011
Happy birthday to everyone born in July, especially me (July 30th)- but also my awesome friend Sami (the 3rd) & my mom (the 5th)! Cake by Cake Concepts by Lynn

Every week I participate in Military Monday, which is a tribute to our troops. I choose to list names of fallen soldiers as a sort of reminder that there’s a bigger picture we need to look at. And since this site is named Cupcake Rehab, I pair each listing with a photo of beautiful patriotic cakes or cupcakes or pastries or what have you to tie it in with the blog and grab attention. This week I used a birthday cake, since my birthday is coming up, but usually I don’t personalize the photos. It isn’t about me, it’s about these brave men & women.

I encourage everyone to do their own version of Military Monday, be it private or public. You can do it on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr or on your own blog. And until these wars are over, I plan on continuing myself. Please take a look at the archives to view the past 2 years worth of Military Monday’s.

    on this subject. Well with your permission let me to grab
    your feed to keep updated with forthcoming post.
    Thanks a million and please continue the enjoyable

  2. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

  3. Howdy! This post could not be written any better!
    Reading through this post reminds me of my good old room mate!
    He always kept talking about this. I will forward this article to him.
    Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Hi there, just became aware of your blog through Google, and found that it is truly
    informative. I am going to watch out for brussels. I will be grateful if you continue this in future.
    A lot of people will be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

  5. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  6. Can I simply just say what a relief to discover a person that actually understands what they are discussing on the
    web. You actually know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More people need to read this and understand this side
    of the story. I was surprised you aren’t more popular given that you certainly have the gift.

  7. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand a lot about this, such as you
    wrote the e book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few % to pressure the message house a bit,
    however instead of that, that is wonderful blog.
    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

  8. Hello there, just became aware of your blog through Google,
    and found that it’s truly informative. I am gonna watch out for brussels.

    I’ll appreciate if you continue this in future.
    A lot of people will be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

  9. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really
    something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post,
    I will try to get the hang of it!

  10. It’s in fact very complex in this busy life to listen news on Television, so I only use internet for that reason, and get the hottest information.

  11. I’m really inspired with your writing abilities as smartly as with the layout
    on your blog. Is that this a paid topic or did you modify it your self?

    Either way stay up the nice quality writing, it’s uncommon to look a
    nice weblog like this one these days..

  12. It is in reality a nice and helpful piece of info.
    I am satisfied that you just shared this useful info with us.
    Please keep us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Asking questions are actually good thing if you are not
    understanding something fully, except this paragraph presents nice understanding even.
