I am working on the template of this blog today in order to chase down some problems that have developed with my template and widgets.

Sheepdog in Iraq

One of my blogger pals I have exchanged comments with is in Iraq, and you can read of his experiences here. I couldn't help but swipe a little of his last to post:

Note: If you ever go somewhere exotic, like Iraq in the winter, and your company, or the Army tells you you don't need to pack a sleeping bag because linens will be provided at your destination, don't pay any attention! The heater in your tent WILL break on the coldest frackin' night, and you will be shivering in your jacket and running to the BX the next day only to learn they are closed for inventory. You will survive, congratulate yourself for not getting sick like everyone else, then promptly get sick a couple days later. Murphy and his stupid law strike again.

He is on my prayer list for the duration.
