Marine; A branch of the armed services formed on Nov. 10th 1775

to stop the British from attacking merchant vessels.  Only branch of the Armed Forces to have red white and blue in their uniform.  Are the president's corps which means they can be called to action at any time w/out an act of congress or act of war.  The Spearhead of the U.S. military first one in last one out.  Always faithful to corps and country.  A highly prided family of few who won every great war there was.  Nick-names include: Leatherneck, Jarhead, Marine, Grunt, Devil Dog, President's Own, Ministers of Death Praying for War.

225 years of romping, stomping, hell, death and destruction. The finest fighting machine the world has ever seen. We were born in a bomb crater, our mother was an M-16 and our father was the devil.

Each moment that I live is an additional threat upon your life. I am a rough looking, roving soldier of the sea. I am cocky, self-centered, overbearing, and I do not know the meaning of fear, for I am fear itself. I am a green, amphibious monster made of blood and guts who arose from the sea, festering on anti-Americans throughout the globe. Whenever it may arise, and when my time comes, I will die a glorious death on the battle field, giving my life to Mom, the Corps, and the American flag.

We stole the eagle from the Air Force, the anchor from the Navy, and the rope from the Army. On the 7th day, while God rested, we overran his perimeter and stole the globe, and we've been running the show ever since. We live like soldiers and talk like sailors and slap the hell out of both of them. Soldier by day, lover by night, drunkard by choice, MARINE BY GOD!!!

 The Marines are the world's premier fighting force.

(1) A professional assassin. (2) A minister of death, praying for war. (3) A population control specialist. (4) An indispensable element of the United States Foreign Policy. (5) The only reason for the existence of Marine helicopters. (6) A revered warrior who will go anywhere at any time and destroy whatever he is ordered to destroy -- as long as he is allowed to sing obscene songs, kick cats, drink, brawl snd embellish war stories beyond recognition. (7) A member of the gungy group of misfits known as Uncle Sam's Misguided Children. (8) A warrior for whom all reading and writing test requirements have been waived and for whom "Ooo-rah!" is the proper response to any question from a superior.

If you can read this thank a Teacher, if you can read this in English thank a Marine

"always faithful"

Faithful to God, Country, Family and the Corps.

Carbs you SHOULD be eating!

Carbs have a bad reputation in weight-loss rings. But the truth is, if you're smart about your carb choices, they won't crumble your diet. What's more, they may even HELP you lose weight!

Eating “good carbs” in place of refined ones (like donuts, cake and white bread) can reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes and may even help you to LOSE WEIGHT because they’re generally rich in feel-full fiber. One study in the Journal of Nutrition found that eating three servings of whole grains a day helped people reduce abdominal fat and total body fat! That's great news for all of us that have a "bread" weakness!

Here is a list of some "good carbs" to help you Get Fit!

That's right! But make sure you are buying Brown Rice or Whole wheat pasta.
(I found that Wal-Mart has a great selection of all styles of pasta made with brown rice, whole wheat and quinoa)
Also, these healthy pastas take just slightly longer to cook and I like to flavor the water with chicken broth.

Consider it souped-up couscous. This delicately flavored whole grain provides some fiber (2 grams per half cup) and a good amount of protein (4 grams)!
Always remember to rinse your quinoa before cooking, and follow the same rules for cooking as rice!
I  use a rice steamer when cooking quinoa, plus I like to add fresh peas and mushrooms for that   Extra Love!

It's just cracked wheat that’s been parboiled so it simply needs to soak in hot water for most uses—a perfect low-maintenance grain. It’s also a good source of feel-full fiber: just 1/2 cup delivers 5 grams.I also buy this at Wal-Mart, for the special deal!

Yes, Popcorn!
Because when you’re craving cheez-its or potato’re certainly not going to reach for a bowl of oatmeal. Popcorn satisfies a snack craving and it’s a whole grain! 3 cups of popped popcorn equals three recommended daily servings of whole grains and contains 3 grams of fiber. Woo-Hoo!

Wild rice has no gluten. Its high fiber content helps eliminate constipation and lowers cholesterol levels. Wild rice is extremely high in antioxidants. These antioxidants counteract the damage done by free radicals in the body. (Free radicals are those cursed things that make us look old!)
Wild Rice is high in Vitamin B9,B3, Niacin, Folate, Phosphorous, Amino Acids, Lycine, Zinc and has twice the fiber of brown rice! 
Now Thats Just WILD!
