1. This quote from Lone Survivor. So much truth in three tiny paragraphs.
“We know about bad guys, what they do, and often, who they are. The
politicians have chosen to send us into battle, and that’s our trade. We
do what’s necessary. And in my view, once those politicians have
elected to send us out to do what 99.9 percent of the country would be
terrified to undertake, they should get the hell out of the way and stay
This entire business of modern war crimes, as identified
by the liberal wings of politics and the media, began in Iraq and has
been running downhill ever since. Everyone’s got to have his little
hands in it, blathering on about the public’s right to know.
the view of most Navy SEALs, the public does not have that right to
know, not if it means placing our lives in unnecessary peril because
someone in Washington is driving himself mad worrying about the human
rights of some cold-hearted terrorist fanatic who would kill us as soon
as they look at us, as well as any other American at whom he could point that
wonky old AK of his.”
And many, many more good quotes where that came from. Like I said, go buy the book. You won’t regret it.

3. This tweet from a fellow blogger. Sad, but true. #historynerd
4. Have you guys been using the Avocado app or am I actually on the ball for once? Avocado is an app for iPhone (not sure about Android, sorry!)
that allows you and your lovebutton to stay connected throughout the
day, week, month, year, etc. by sending messages across a channel that’s
exclusively for the two of you. You can send photos, messages, draw
pictures, and set a calendar together all through the app. I’m usually
not a big “apps” person, but Dane and I really love this for both everyday and long distance lovin’.
