2026 Dead American Soldiers as of today



We had a great weekend at the Wisconsin cabin with our friends Paul and Tom. The fall colors were simply spectacular. We enjoyed some great wines, a fire on the shore, and had a quiet walk in the woods. Before breakfast we talked about how we each envisioned our lives would be in ten years. Since then (i.e. in the last 24 hours) seven U.S. troops were killed in Iraq. Who knows how many civilians. I imagine that last week or last month, perhaps even on Saturday, these soldiers were having similar conversations with their friends; wondering how their lives would be in ten years.

Take a moment to see a visualization of the number of American soldiers killed in Iraq and take time to scroll through the subsequent visualization that shows the number of Iraqi civilians killed:

Your customers are doing it - are you?
To blog or not to blog... your customers are doing it. The question is - are you? Blogs are a force to be reckoned with.
Just like so many Americans my friend loves the clubs and pop r & b lyrics so he went ahead and built an awesome website about pop r & b lyrics. When he's in high spirit he goes to the site and start reciting all his favorite pop r & b lyrics. Says it's good for the heart. Guess what? I gave it a shot and it works great!
