Drop and Give Me Seven
Seven soldiers from the 82nd division paratroopers at North Carolina’s Fort Bragg have been punished and three of them will be dishonorably discharged and face charges for pandering, sodomy and engaging in sex acts for money. The three that were officially named were Spc. Richard T. Ashley, Pfc. Wesley K. Mitten and Pvt. Kagen G. Mullen. The soldiers appeared on gay websites selling their image and gay interactions for pay. Military officials have announced that the orientation of the men is irrelevant and that their behavior is what has brought the court martial. They also went on to say that serving while gay is not discouraged, but that engaging in gay acts is against the image of the military and punishable – including discharge.
To Thine Own Self Be True
Being true to yourself is harder than you think. You’ll always have the folks that sincerely care about you having different ideas of what’s best for you. Advice from loved ones is like shoes – sometimes they fit comfortably and sometimes they hurt your feet and are all wrong. Choosing what advice to take and what to place in your advice bank is the tricky part. To combat the feeling that you’re going against your own grain and living someone else’s life, you should always do what feels right in your gut. Remember that failing or making the wrong decision is not as difficult to handle when you know in your heart that the decision was your own. So listen carefully, follow your heart and do what is right for you.

With a sexy pajama party, a wear what you dare party, a pool party, fireplaces and a healthy dose of sedatives, this is sure to be a weekend to remember. I’ve ordered my ice skates and hope that they arrive in time for my triple axle attempt. By the way, where the heck is my wear what you dare outfit? I’m waiting…
We’ve done it before, but a fellow blogger phrased it a bit differently…. What event in your past do you feel if you went back and changed, would alter the entire course of your life? Would you change it today?
Keep passin’ the open windows…
