This is my first mention on this topic to date and I do not think it will be the last

A Story on Freedom Alliance and there work--

I start with a recent event held by the group and reported in The News Blaze

Recently, fifty-five service members stationed at Fort Polk, along with their families enjoyed an Appreciation Dinner at the Wagon Master Steakhouse in Leesville, Louisiana. Those in attendance were treated to a night of fun and camaraderie. Sponsored by Freedom Alliance, the dinner was held to honor the troops for their service and sacrifice.

"Words like duty, sacrifice and honor are defined by the men and women of the U.S. military," stated Freedom Alliance President Tom Kilgannon. "Freedom Alliance works very hard to show these soldiers that we understand, support, and are very appreciative of the job they are doing to protect our freedom and this country. It is our hope that through these dinners, we can honor our brave military personnel as much as they honor us."

Freedom Alliance regularly hosts "Troop Appreciation Dinners" for service members from all branches around the country to honor and thank them for their service and sacrifice for our country. So far this year, Freedom Alliance has held dinners for troops at Fort Gordon, Georgia; Fort Carson, Colorado; and the Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas. These dinners are held for wounded service members recovering in Warrior Transition Units, those returning home from overseas duty, those recuperating in military hospitals, and many others stationed throughout the United States.

In addition to hosting Troop Appreciation Dinners, Freedom Alliance distributes "Gifts from Home" care packages to military personnel deployed overseas and provides scholarships to children of military heroes, among other programs.

Last fall, the Woodbine, Md., mother of three figured out a great way to get some: online giveaways. She has entered about 40 so far. She has won T-shirts, cleaning products, a small portable vacuum, olive oil, beef jerky and -- best of all -- a Nintendo DS on Web sites such as, and

"The lure of free stuff is quite appealing," she said. "I never considered myself a winner. I don't think I ever won bingo. My name was never drawn from a hat. However, I've been extraordinarily successful at the giveaways."

The recession has emboldened a certain kind of consumer: The mooch. With dwindling retirement savings, a higher cost of living and wobbly job market, they don't just want discounts on items they used to pay full price for without a second thought. They want freebi…


A RECENT NOR EASTER HIT THE NEW ENGLAND COAST AND AS THOUGHT THIS WRECK SURFACED AGAIN FROM ITS BURIED DEMISE--The skeleton only appears periodically - the last time was in 2013 - always after a significant coastal storm, and always attracting attention. Archaeological work conducted in 1980 indicated the wreck is a sloop of about Revolutionary War age. It is likely a “pinky,” a type of vessel with a high, narrow stern and square rigging easily maneuverable along the coast of Maine. Pinkies were popular as fishing and cargo vessels. The first sighting of the skeleton was in 1958, and then it has surfaced periodically right up to the present day - and usually after a good spring nor’easter. Word spread quickly about this sighting via social media, and people came over the weekend and on Monday as well. First, they had to navigate the seaweed- and rock-strewn streets of York Beach. They were also precluded from parking cars in most of the Ellis Park lot, which was buried under a layer …


I've always felt a special fascination for mosaics. From Roman tile compositions to current digital collages, I think they're an awesome artistic expression.
That's why I was so happy when I found Andreamosaic.
This tool enables you to create amazing mosaics from your digital pictures in a very easy way.
It requires having a large collection of photos to use as tiles, that's true. Fortunately the installation file already includes a pack of 500 sample photos that produce excellent results.
The program's interface is quite dull; in fact it's simply a gray window with too much text on it. But the mechanics are easy to understand so you'll be creating your own mosaics in no time!
Plus, the program includes a 20-page manual that explains everything thoroughly. Just remember that the more tiles you use, the longer it will take to generate the mosaic and the larger the final file will be.
