On This Independence Day

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Friday, July 4, 2014 in Government, History, holiday

Let’s remember what our forefathers were fighting, against and for.

god bless america

The time is soon coming when we will need to throw off another despot who clings to his pen and his phone, and provide new guards for our future security. History has taught us this: that she will repeat herself as long as ignorance abounds like putrescent mold upon the fabric of time. And ignorance abounds when we are taught nothing but to feel good about ourselves.

It’s high time we start earning back what our forefathers fought to give us.

In Flanders Field

by John MaCrae

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow,
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky,
The larks, still bravely singing, fly,
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead.
Short days ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved and now we lie,
In Flanders Fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you, from failing hands, we throw,
The torch, be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us, who die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow,
In Flanders Fields.

Remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Happy Texas Independence Day!!

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Monday, April 21, 2014 in Everyday Hero, Friendship, History, holiday

Th Battle of San Jacinto was the last battle of the Texas Revolution, fought between the Texian and Mexican armies. Unlike the siege of The Alamo, this battle lasted all of 18 minutes, and resulted in over 600 Mexican casualties, as opposed to less than 10 Texian casualties.

It is also a special day in Aggieland. I never had cause to write about it before but I do now, in recognition of our friend and fellow Aggie, Draco. Today we celebrate Muster, when we recognize the Aggies that have passed away in the year. At Roll Call, we answer for them, “Here!”

Tonight we shall raise a glass to his memory, and remember the good times we had in Aggieland.

Guess What Day It Is??

It is March 14th. This is the day most revered by men everywhere. Why? Because after the mental breakdown of February 14th, every guy deserves to be repaid in kind.

So gentlemen, make sure to remind your lady of your sacrifices on Valentine’s Day, so that she may accommodate your preferences today. If y’all need help, you can always go to the official website for more details.

Not that y’all need them ;)

Girlie Drink of the Week

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Tuesday, December 31, 2013 in BOOZE!!, holiday, Social

I have to admit, out of all the countries I visited while stationed in Germany, Poland was my favorite. It even beat Italy. The food is wonderful, and so is the pottery, but the people were amazing, so open and welcoming and they really appreciate the U.S. I mean REALLY appreciate. Nothing like the bartender finding out you’re American and sending you free shots of Polish vodka.

And I mean good Polish vodka. Not the stuff they export.

Anyway, I was perusing the Sobieski™ Vodka search when I found a very pretty vodka cocktail which uses champagne. And one MUST have champagne on New Year’s Eve, right?

Also, is it “Year’s” or “Years”? I’m asking for a friend.

Back to the drink. It was concocted by Francesco LaFranconi for Sobieski™.

dont talk just kiss cocktail

Don’t Talk Just Kiss

(Milcz i Caluj)

  • 1½ oz. Vodka
  • ½ oz. Grand Marnier
  • ½ oz. Pomegranate juice
  • Brut champagne
  • Strawberries, for garnish

Pour vodka, Grand Marnier, and juice into shaker filled with crushed ice. Shake well, and strain into a cocktail martini glass, or a champagne glass if so inclined. Top with the champagne and garnish with a strawberry.

Enjoy, and I hope y’all have a wonderful time bringing in the New Year, be it at home or at a party, and as always be safe.

Because I spent all the bail money on a new pan ;)

Be It Resolved

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Monday, December 30, 2013 in holiday, Social

At last, 2013 comes to a close. Some who know me know this has been a very rough year. Overall there is no end to my blessings, though. Family, friends, near and far, all are always in mind and heart.

But there is one thing I find so annoying, that I tend to shirk every social post and comment about it.

NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS!!!

Don’t get me wrong. I do like to socialize and have fun and watch fireworks and ring in the New Year. Out with the old, in with the new, right? (Which reminds me: I need to go through my closet and downsize.) But every time January rolls around, everyone asks me the same thing: What’s your New Year’s resolution?? Why, WHY, WHY do I need to make any?

2014

I like food. I like drink. I fit into my clothes. I love and take care of my family. I take care of my health. I call my folks. I keep in touch with friends. In short, I do everything that covers most resolutions, including staying out of jail, and carrying bail money for those who don’t. So no, I won’t be making any resolutions any more. I am better off correcting myself throughout the year than piling everything on at once. Just enjoy the year, both bad and good.

Besides, there’s Lent for that :D

Christmas Eve Eve!!

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Monday, December 23, 2013 in Funny Pics, holiday, Teh Funny

I had all the time in the world and now I look at the calendar and see I have ONE MORE DAY to get everything organized and wrapped and shipped out and stuff cooked and baked and call people and go around the neighborhood dropping off goodies and packing and cleaning and dusting and doing even MOAR laundry and clearing out empty boxes and making sure that Santa can find his way from the chimney to the tree with no dog obstacles.

That will be the most difficult thing to accomplish.

santa and cookies lol

But for now I am drinking my coffee and trying to calm down. It does me no good to stress about unforeseen crap. And let’s face it: if I stress out, the kids rebel and Hubby goes into hiding in Diablo III. And I am not going to give him the satisfaction until after Christmas.

This is the Empire of Aggie. I am Empress, Dictator, and Queen. Ergo, “Because I Said So” is reason enough. :D
