Hardship Assignment?

Diego Garcia - a little island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. You can find it on a map. It's about 37 miles long, but never more than 5 miles wide. Here's an aerial photo.
My son Kenny just finished a 3 1/2-month assignment there, and has just returned to his base in Okinawa, Japan.

I'm Posting Elsewhere These Days

The past couple of months I've been caught up in cross stitching again - it used to be a favorite hobby about 20 years ago; I'm back at it with a passion! So, if you want to see what's going on, go to my stitching blog, Just One More Stitch.

Food bloggers - I have a question for you. How do you keep at it? I truly enjoyed blogging about what I was cooking and eating, but eventually, I ran out of "freshness." I mean, there are so many things that I cook that we like so much we repeat them. Night after night, I fix a great dinner, but since I'd already blogged about it months before, I had nothing to blog about. You don't want to see post after post saying, "We had ____ again. It was great, as usual." And I don't want to fabricate things, nor do I want to try new things just to have something to blog about. I mean, If I DO try something new, I'll definitely share it, but those new times are coming less often. So what do YOU do?

Thanks for being such great readers!
