"Two Great Tastes that Taste Great Together"

For those of you who weren't around in the 70's (lol, I'm 'dating' myself here:) this was an advertising slogan for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

So, why am I writing about it? Well, it IS almost that time of year when you can send chocolate again to the troops in Iraq (instead of chocolate slugde , which is what 120 degree temps would do!)but that's not the reason.

I received an email update about something today, and as soon as I started reading it, like a bolt of lightening ( "yeah,that's the ticket"  )it seemed to me that it would go great with something else I've mentioned before.

The VFW sent this information about their Holiday Card Center

with some beautiful Christmas cards you can order, and it says "a portion of the proceeds benefit our mission to help continue the fight for disabled veterans and to facilitate job training for meaningful work opportunites."
Kat at Yikes! is right now collecting Christmas Cards for Operation Love from Home

Below is information about my annual Christmas Card Drive, Operation: Love From Home. Please do what you can to send some holiday cheer to our men & women serving in harm's way this holiday season! :) If you have a blog or website, please consider posting this informtion on your blog or website; if you do not have a blog or website, please forward this on to as many people as you can. My goal this year is to EXCEED last year's total of 2,500 holiday cards. Thank you all in advance for your participation and support for our heroes!!! God bless, Kat. PS - I also have a flyer available in Word format, if anyone would like something "pretty and printable" to distribute.


During this holiday season, let's show our troops we love and support them!!!! From September 30 to November 30, I will be collecting holiday cards for troops stationed in high-combat areas in Iraq and Afghanistan. Being away from home and living in harsh conditions during the holiday season is especially difficult ~ they need to know we have not forgotten them!!! Mail from home helps to keep our troops' morale strong, making a very real difference in their lives.

Send your signed, unsealed holiday cards to:

Mrs. Kathy Orr


P.O. Box 1660

Loganville, Georgia, 30052

The cards can be handmade or store-bought... for that matter, they don't even have to be cards; a hand-written or typed letter is just as wonderful! This is a great opportunity to get your Scout troop, school, church and other civic organizations involved in doing something to show support for our troops.

If you wish to send an email greeting (which will be printed off and mailed along with the holiday cards), please send an email to:

**IMPORTANT GUIDELINES: This is not a "dating service" of any type. Please do not send suggestive or otherwise inappropriate cards or materials. Please also refrain from making political statements of any nature. I will be reading and screening every card received to ensure that the above guidelines are adhered to. Remember: This is strictly to let the troops know that we love them, we are proud of them and that we HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN them! If you have any questions, please contact me at
See what I mean? "Two Great Tastes that Taste Great Together'! You could consider ordering the VFW cards, and sending them to Kat!
One other thing  I wanted to pass on......White Roses Adventures has a fantastic video posted to  YouTube   called Live for Today.
God bless our troops (AND our contractors)
