Some updates on folks I've blogged about previously.
Cindy of White Rose's Adventures should be home from Army Basic training, after being unable to complete the training due to health problems. While she is upset about this, it in no way diminishes the enormous respect and admiration I have for her. I think it takes a lot of guts to even Attempt Army training when you are 42 years old!!
And I think it's more honorable to have Tried to do something,even if you are unable to finish it as you would have wished to....than never to have tried at all.
You can read her latest post here Click here: White Rose's Adventures
And here's an update on a wounded soldier that I (among Many others) passed on the request for prayers for Click here: Soldiers' Angels Germany: Update on DJ Emery
In the "Friday the Dorkteenth" contest at Dorkbloggers
(and my entry for that contest is here Click here: "Friday the Dorkteenth" )
they have finally posted a way to vote (although, in perhaps typical Dork fashion? I don't think it's quite working correctly yet. LOL.Plus, it still says you are to vote the week of MARCH 14-21, and I for the life of me cannot figure out how to time travel....although,hmmmm....maybe that's why the poll-voting-thingy isn't working?) Anyways.....hopefully at some point, you'll actually be able to vote at this link Click here: DorkBloggers-Come to the Dork Side...: The time has come to GET YOUR DORK ON!
I think it would be cool to win a "Dork" contest,LOL (which should tell you quite a bit about my personality right there:) and although I'll of course say "Hey, vote for me!" please be sure to check out the other entries...there are some very good ones!
For a more serious contest? Terri and Anthony over at A Soldiers' Mind are having an essay contest on What It Means to Support the Troops
