Military Monday.

September 26, 2011
Great patriotic flag cupcake idea from Martha Stewart

Another Military Monday. In case you’re unfamiliar with this concept: each week I list names of soldiers who’ve lost their lives in one of the wars the United States is currently participating in, usually accompanied by a patriotic or red/white/blue baked item or food. I’ve been doing it since May of 2009 when Yoyo asked me to do it with her, & I think I’ve only missed one week.

I’m so very proud of our military, especially it being a volunteer service. These people volunteer to do what the rest of us wouldn’t. They deserve so much better from us as a country.

Not to mention support for our troops is NOT a singularly political idea. It’s not a Republican or Democratic or Independent thing. It’s just the right thing.

  5. Needed to put you one very little word just to give thanks again for your splendid strategies you have contributed here.

    This has been simply incredibly open-handed of you in giving openly what a lot of folks might have
    offered as an ebook to help make some dough for themselves, primarily now that you could have done it in case you considered necessary.
    These concepts likewise acted like the good way to recognize that
    other people online have similar keenness just like my own to figure out
    a lot more when it comes to this issue. I believe there are
    lots of more pleasurable periods ahead for many who view your website.

  6. 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.

    ask. Does managing a well-established blog like yours take a massive
