Once in a Blue Moon

New Year's Eve will be marked by a Blue Moon --- as in, "once in a blue moon" --- which actually means about 2.5 years! A Blue Moon is when we have two full moons in one month... this happens on New Year's less often.

As we begin the last year of the first decade of the 21st century, we are finding that we are continuing to be under siege from Islamic terrorists, the country is more divided than ever, and that the troops sent around the world are still fighting and dying, though they receive less recognition than ever before --- even the anti-war figures seem to have lost interest.

For me, I will renew my commitment to support our troops around the world and our wounded warriors and veterans. And, you? Maybe we can all do something special, once in a blue moon!

Happy New Year, Cynthia! I won't be able to see the Blue Moon tonight, as we're overcast and ugly down this way. But I might drink one or two of 'em (Blue Moons)!

Thanks for this bit of information.
I, too will dedicate myself more to our troops, their families and raising awareness to people who want to help our soldiers but don't know how to begin.
Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, my friends!

LOL Buck, it peaked out for a minute last night between the snow and the rain!

AM and MaryAnn - I know you are both deeply dedicated to our soldiers! Thank you, both!
