Happy Memorial Day!

Today is Memorial Day in the US – the day set aside to remember and honor those who have died to allow us to have the life we enjoy. This usually mean a focus on the armed forces, but I expand its application to honor ancestors and mentors – all who came before me and without whom I would not have the wonderful life I enjoy today. That includes, but is not limited to, those who have served in the armed forces.


Memorial Day is also the informal beginning of the summer season, which my family is celebrating with outdoor cooking and meals with friends. We went to friends on Friday, had a group to our home yesterday, and another group to our home today.

Friends, family, enjoying the outdoors, and honoring those that made our life possible. Memorial Day is a wonderful day / weekend.
