Memorial Day

20130507-222103.jpg

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States. On this day, which occurs every year on the last Monday of May, we remember the men and women who have died while serving our country.

Many people on this day will visit cemeteries and memorials placing an American flag at graves to honor our fallen heros.

Let’s remember that appreciation is not only one day out of the year – it’s year round.

Thank you to all of those who have died while serving our great country! I think this picture says it all.

Don’t Forget Your Veterans!

20121112-082753.jpg

Don’t forget to thank a veteran!  We live due to veterans fighting for our freedom.  They are much appreciated, not just today, but everyday!

My country,’ tis of thee,
sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing;
land where my fathers died,
land of the pilgrims’ pride,
from every mountainside let freedom ring! 

My native country, thee,
land of the noble free, thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
thy woods and templed hills;
my heart with rapture thrills, like that above. 

Let music swell the breeze,
and ring from all the trees sweet freedom’s song;
let mortal tongues awake;
let all that breathe partake;
let rocks their silence break, the sound prolong.

Our fathers’ God, to thee,
author of liberty, to thee we sing;
long may our land be bright
with freedom’s holy light;
protect us by thy might, great God, our King.

Happy National Doughnut Day!

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

What a wonderful day.  Not only is it Friday but it’s also National Donut Day!  Who could ask for anything more?  It doesn’t matter what kind you like – partake in a doughnut today.  There’s many places even offering a free doughnut just for this one day – National Donut Day.  In our area, Krispy Kreme is offering a free one.  So for today, splurge and eat one to celebrate.  But the main question is – can you just eat one?

History of National Donut Day – did you know that this day was created by the Salvation Army in 1938?  It was created as a fundraiser to help the needy during the Great Depression and to honor the women who served doughnuts to military members during World War I.  About 250 Salvation Army volunteers provided assistance to America troops in France during the war.  And the kicker – Salvation Army
s’ Ensign Margaret Sheldon and Adjutant Helen Purviance cleverly thought of frying the doughnuts in the troops’ helmets.  How creative!

Whatever flavor you decide to pick – enjoy this holiday.  I’m sure that little chompers we call Bacon will enjoy a couple.  Heck, I might even too if the Hotel Thompson throws me out a couple – hint hint.

Happy National Doughnut Day!
