Blog Frog

I just signed up for BlogFrog, as you can see from my new widget to the right. It was super easy signing in with my Facebook ID, but they have other options as well. I joined a few of their communities but they didn't have one for belly dancing or archery. I could make one I guess but I'm a little swamped what with National Blog Writing Month (Nanowrimo) and National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo). Plus I'm getting reading for Thanksgiving, doing a painting a day, and various other projects with deadlines.

I'm testing the theory that the more you do, the more you can do.

Veteran's Day USA

Although I have very conflicted feelings about Veteran's Day I do want to acknowledge all those that served so that I still have a USA to come home to.
Both my father and my deceased father-in-law had military careers. My father is retired air force and my father-in-law kept it a secret that he was in the Army. I only found out at his graveside.

I have many many friends that I know are vets and I'm sure there are others that never mention it. So a toast to you all.
