A La Carte (10/7)

I spent yesterday afternoon making some edits to my book. So far it’s been easy enough and three chapters are just about ready to go (which means they are ready to be sent through to the next stage of editing in which they’ll be checked for syntax, spelling, grammar, style and all the rest). Here’s hoping that the rest of the book goes just as smoothly!

Battlescape – The US military site has an interesting encapsulation of the actions of a recent Medal of Honor recipient. “Staff Sgt. Robert J. Miller was a weapons sergeant with Special Forces Operational Detachment Alpha 3312, Special Operations Task Force-33, Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force-Afghanistan, when he was killed in Gowardesh, Afghanistan, in a battle with enemy forces using small arms fire and rocket-propelled grenades.”

Do I Have to Have Sex With My Spouse? – Winston Smith answers this question in a short video from CCEF: Am I obligated to have sex whenever my spouse asks?
