I woke up yesterday and checked my emails as usual. I regularly receive one from an old Marine buddy (Bulldog) who served with me way back in the day. He's in the Army Reserve now and has put in many tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He sent me this photo that a reporter took yesterday morning after a VBIED (vehicle born improvised explosive device) went off and he lost a large number of fellow servicemen. He wanted me to know he's OK if I saw it in the media. Yesterday afternoon I did see that Fox News and CNN were reporting the bombing. Bulldog often volunteers for the tours he puts in. His sense of duty to our country is as strong now as it was 24 years ago when I met him. He's full of all the unpopular things nowadays, discipline, focus, service to others above himself, etc. While we enjoy the lake over the long weekend (as we should) let's take a moment to remember the inconvenient war that others are still fighting on our behalf. And remember those who will go home one last time from an unforgiving foreign land after having made the ultimate sacrifice.
Years ago when I was looking for a lake front cabin I stumbled across a realtor ad for Lake of the Oaks. There was nothing on the web about our lake.
Everything had to be learned by chasing people down and making phone calls. I couldn't believe that in the age of the Internet, information about the lake was left in the Stone Age. I decided to do something about that when I became an owner.
Always interested in technology, I enjoy providing information and updates to fellow owners and prospects. Please let me know if its working.
