Missing In America Project - Veteran Recovery Program

Missing In America Project - Veteran Recovery Program

The continued reporting about the disgraceful mishandling of remains at Arlington National Cemetery prompted me to look around for more information.

The purpose of the MIA Project is to locate, identify and inter the unclaimed cremated remains of American veterans through the joint efforts of private, state and federal organizations. To provide honor and respect to those who have served this country by securing a final resting place for these forgotten heroes.

Here is a quote from the Missing in America Project website:

You served your country through a war, or through peacetime. You expected to receive a military burial, recognition by our government of your commitment to our great country. You expected to have honor and respect paid to you as a result of your service to our great country. Instead, you reside on a shelf in a mortuary or a storage facility at a crematorium.

5 Minute Fix Internal hard disk drive not found

My old Dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop computer was sitting around collecting dust for years until I decided to repurpose it as a training laptop earlier this week.

I did a factory restore and everything was working fine until I rebooted the system and got the message:

Internal hard disk drive not found

I did a Google search and saw several  possible solutions stating that I should try to "reseat the drive". I thought this would be a major issue to fix that would require someone els, but I was able to fix the problem in less than 5 minutes

I love fixing computers! Keep in mind that I am a V.I.P. - Vision Impaired Person, with almost no central vision.

Back to School: Doing My Daughter's Hair

The start of school means that I have to work my magic on my daughter's hair in the mornings. Yay!

Here are some pictures of me and my daughter on the second day of school for 2012. I'm finishing her hair before we move into the next step of our morning routine - breakfast.

Doing my daughter's hair has never been a problem for me. I've been doing her hair since she was an infant. I've done mom's hair a few times as well. I just can't get my hands to cooporate for braids and plaits, so I just stick to twists.
