We have recently returned from two great (but hot) timeshare vacation weeks at Hilton Head Island, SC.

Our first week was reserved at The Cottages at The Shipyard--lower left and right views. We enjoyed a two bedroom, 2 bath cottage at this outstanding resort, with the pool and hot tub just around the corner and the ocean beach about a mile away. Internet dial up is available from the cottage and WiFi is available from the Spinaker resort check-in lobby.

During the second week, we relaxed at the Ocean Palms at Port Royal--upper left and right view--again at a spacious two bedroom, 2 bath unit, which whirlpool tubs in both baths! And the pool and hot tub were just a step away from our back porch. A resort shuttle was available for trips to the ocean beach onsite and other resort activities. Internet dial up is available from the unit and WiFi is available from the Westin resort check-in lobby.

Hilton Head Island is a beautiful vacation spot--especially for golfers--but it was rather hot temperature-wise during the last two weeks in August.

The return of the Eagles
By Michelle Malkin • August 12, 2007 08:56

They’re coming back to Washington, D.C. Will you stand with them? As you’ll recall, the first Gathering of Eagles in March to counter the White Flag mob drew unprecedented masses to the nation’s capital in support of the troops and their mission.

In 33 days, the Eagles and a number of similar organizations plan to answer the ANSWER crowd again. GOE is holding a Freedom Walk on September 10 and Operation Eagle Justice on September 15.Eagles Landing “will assemble in Washington, D.C. on September 15, 2007 in support of America, our troops, and our fallen brothers and sisters.”

Move America Forward will once again lead a cross-country caravan to D.C. as part of the Fight for Victory tour: Supporters of Operation Iraqi Freedom will conduct a nationwide caravan along with more than 2-dozen rallies calling for continued support of U.S. troops based in Iraq in the days leading up to General David Petraeus September 15th report to Congress.
From September 3, 2007 through September 15, 2007 the nation’s largest grassroots, pro-troop organization, Move America Forward will lead thousands of supporters in a cross-country effort called the “FIGHT FOR VICTORY TOUR.”

And the Vets for Freedom “are mobilizing Iraq and Afghanistan veterans to engage members of Congress during the entire month of August and tell them that General Petraeus needs adequate troops, time, and resources to complete the mission in Iraq.” Sign up here for the Sept. 17-18 mission.

Mark these dates and events on your calendars. Donate. Volunteer. Spread the word. If you missed the 1st GOE, this is your chance to make your voice heard, bear witness to history, and make a difference.
