Question Of The Week 11-16-15

Do you just pour a bowl of cereal, add milk and then sit down and eat it? Or is there an art to preparing your bowl of cereal? 

Do you mix a variety of cereals? (I at least add grape nuts). Do you add fruit or nuts? Do you still eat kids cereal like Cap'N Crunch or Fruit Loops, etc. What about hot cereal like oatmeal or cream of wheat? Inquiring minds want to know. (Well just my inquiring mind.) My family and friends hate the fact that I put Ice water on my cereal instead of milk, but hey, to each her own:-)

Thank you all for participating in the Veteran's Day Honor Wall that I placed here again and on Facebook for the first time.  This will be an annual event on Veteran's Day on this blog.  It was a privilege for me to type each name and think of you and the love you shared with these Vets from many, many years of service to our country. If you still want the names of other military veterans added to my blog just comment here and I will gladly add them.

When I married Ron and told people he was a retired Navy veteran a fellow commented to me, "Oh you are marrying a war monger!"  As I learned of the many humanitarian things our military does around the world I want to say to that fellow, "These men and women are Peace Mongers." Remember the media only advertises bad deeds but talk to a vet and you will learn that our military mission is as peace keepers.

This is a rerun of my post from 2013.  You might see the name of a Veteran you posted and if you do not, then put it in the comments and I will add it to the list.


Put his or her first names in the comment section and I will add them to this blog page as a way of saying thanks for their service.

Question Of The Week 11-9-15

How do you know when to end a friendship 
and how do you end it?


Friday, November 06, 2015


Veteran's Day is approaching.  Take 25 minutes of your time to watch this entire video honoring 1991 Congressional Medal Of Honor winner MSG Roy Benavidez.   In doing so you will honor all our Veterans. His story honors all our military, especially our Veterans of Foreign Wars.  My husband often talked of the exploits of those who risked it all to return our trapped and stranded fighting men in Vietnam. Benavidez speech in the second half of the video tells who the heroes are.
