Happy Memorial Day

This is a day to say “Thank You” to the men and women who have fought and are fighting to maintain our freedom for us.

In addition, I’d like to say a special “thanks” to the families of the soldiers for their sacrifices as well. They have given and continue to give a great deal to help maintain our freedom. No matter where the war is or when, the soldiers need our support. We may not believe in the war, but it’s the people that matter not the political elements.

I hope today you have time to relax and enjoy time with your family and friends. Enjoy the freedom that so many have fought for and continue to fight for.

This will be a short post, but I have winners to announce - YooHoo!! First, I’d like to say thanks to everyone who entered these giveaways. I only wish everyone could have won. Now the winners.
