END OF THE WEEK....
I'm afraid I'm suffering from Olympic "hangover". I can't stay away from watching it till late at night, and catching up on the medals and spectacular moments. As with every Olympics there's been stories that will stick with it's history: the spectacular Michael Phelps, the controversy over the Chinese "womens" gymnastic team (don't even get me started on that topic!), Canada pulling off medals *finally* in the second week, and only a couple of disqualifications for doping.
And, we lost another three soldiers this week to IED's. France lost ten soldiers. It's obvious to anyone with grey brain cells that NATO needs to get tough with "participating" countries and get those boots on the ground and out there - not hiding behind their personal camps and doing the easy work. The Taliban can be defeated, just as Hitler was, with the free world coming together to beat it back in to oblivion. It's going to take commitment, money, talent, and willpower.
I still can't type well enough or long enough to do any serious writing. I've been busy beta reading for a friend, and am getting ready to judge another contest in September. In the first week of September, I'll also be hosting another blog tour for co-authors Dillon Burroughs and Marla Alupoaicei on their new release GENERATION HEX - Understanding the Subtle Dangers of Wicca.
In the meantime, keep writing!
