How much Alcohol is actually in your beer?

Have you ever wondered what the alcohol content of that drink in your hand is? I know I Have. It is easy to find that label when you are reading a liquor bottle because it is right there on the front. However beer cans sometimes don't even say anywhere on the can how much alcohol is in it.

So for your information, in case you ever wondered..haha..

Getting close..

Well, we are now 29 days away from our move to Illinois. I have most everything taken care of for the move but I Have a few more calls to make this week. I am still working on getting us a bigger place to live when we get there. Hopefully housing will cooperate with me. I also have to make sure everything is ready with the mazda as well.

The van is pretty much all set, I just have to clean it out and make sure there is enough room for all of our things. I am praying for a gentle winter at least until we get to Illinois. I have to admit driving through the ice and snow is worrying me some.

I still have packing to do and some Christmas shopping. Kris and I were able to get some shopping done today but the bulk of it will be taken care of on black friday.. Man I love black It caters to the super saver in me! haha..

So with piles of paperwork and many things that never seem to get done (like cleaning) it seems we will never leave. Yet time is proving to us otherwise.
It seems to be dancing away from me faster and faster as I prepare to say "see you later" to my friends. Ahh Military life. However, I feel lucky to have had this time with them to get to know them. If we weren't in the Navy, I wouldn't even have had that option in the first place, so for me.. This life is a good one.. even with all the goodbyes ..

Sad Goodbyes & Happy Hellos,

Veterans Day

Horse Soldiers, you don't hear about them in the news, but they were the first U.S. armed forces on the ground in Afghanistan after the 9/11 terror attacks in 2001.

Veterans have been a big part of my life. My dad and my Uncles are Vietnam Vets. I am thankful that they all came through that time alive. I married a man that decided the Navy was his calling, so only a few short months after we were married, he joined. I supported him because it is what he wanted to do and I still support him. I salute all of the military men and women in our Military and all of the Vets who served before them.

We should also remember the animals that help, for they are also working on the front lines as soldiers. You can read more about them by following this link.
