    My avatar (and username) I take from the poem In Flanders Field by John McCrae. You can read it here if you haven't read it or do not recall it:

    In Flanders Field, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae

    I chose it to honor our fallen in combat, including my son, Andrew - lost in Iraq in 2004. RIP to all of our lost, beloved soldiers.
    "Blessed is the lonesome pioneer." -- Judee Sill (1973, "There's a Rugged Road")

    I am a huge, and I mean HUGE, Elliott (two l's, two t's) Yamin fan. I've been following his career since American Idol season 5. I've been to many of his concerts, including several out-of-state and have been lucky enough to meet and chat with him several times. Not only do I think he is a huge talent but he is equally sweet and kind-hearted.

    I am so sorry for you loss. I lost a good friend March of 2004 in Fallujah. He was the one hung from the bridge
    I can only please one person a day, today is not your day and tomorrow doesn't look good either

    Aww, what a cutie! Happy Birthday to your son. I have a Matt as well. I chose the name because I liked it and it means "Gift from God". All children are precious gifts.

    It's a picture I took from a rocking (truly!) boat at the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland.

    It's not for Eisenhower and Nixon, but Davis and Dickey.

    Ike Davis and R.A. Dickey, first baseman and knuckleball pitcher, respectively, for the New York Mets. Two of the few bright spots this year for the Metropolitans.

    I love House. I cannot wait for another season.
