H&I Fires 15 Jan 06

Open post for those with something to share. New, complete posts come in below.

Our pal John, who has ruined our investment portfolio by cleverly using his website to divert our funds from smart investments to Castle Artifacts, thus improving *his* investment portfolio, sends us to this retired sailors place - oddly enough, to get a peptalk from General Patton.

Carnival of the Recipes #74 is up at The Common Room. -The Armorer

It's not much, but I figured I'd invite people to visit my blog for a purpose other than expressing their alarm over the idea that the Army wants good PR for itself. Check this out while you're at it, and see if you can cope with the jealousy. *wink* - Fuzzybear Lioness

Pogue sends: This poor guy needs to find another profession. A journalist that no one noticed was missing? Who'd 'a thunk it?

Confederate Yankee discusses the difficulty of sorting out who's who - and asks the question... in a war for survival, do we treat it like a police activity. Would we have lamented in any serious way the death of Goebbel's children or Eva Braun, if it meant we'd have gotten Goebbels, or Hitler? Oh, wait - it's not a war for survival, Pelosi sez so. -The Armorer

I must apologize for being silent on the H+I Fires but it has been a busy few weeks as I have been blogging for dough about the Canadian Federal election for the CBC. You can read about the fight between our center-left, the left and the lefties and the nutty nutty leftwing nutbars over here. For those of you wondering what the top half of my head looks like, you shall find an answer under that link. Soon, however, the voting will be over up here and I can get back to asking naive questions about the US constitution and all things military.

Also, speaking of exercising your franchise, A Good Beer Blog is up for some awards. Your vote placed here would be gratefully appreciated by all the staff (meaning me). Remember: I drink the beers so you don't have to - that is what you wanted, right?

All the best for now from the north, Alan.
