My family will be up here for the 4th of July Holiday. I need to ready the house and make sure we have enough burgers and franks for the BBQ. This will be the first time my entire family will be with me in almost 15 months. I’m looking forward to their visit. I’m also looking forward to finally celebrating something positive. July 4th will again be with parades, fireworks and backyard parties. Make sure you too also take the time to stop and enjoy whatever bit of peace and happiness we can ascertain. Despite it all, America is still a wonderful country.

I’ll be back before you know it!
