What It's About

Welcome to my blog! I ruminate on random thoughts rattling around in my brain. Subjects range from reality TV to current events and everything in between. Whether you agree with me or not, I welcome your comments. God gave you the ability to think for yourself, and this country was founded based on the right to have your own opinion. Who am I to question that? Hope you enjoy! And, if you like to shop on the internet, or have always wanted to try, please feel free to click on one of the banners on the left.

Remember Why...

Hope everyone has a happy Memorial Day!

As you are cooking out, drinking your beverage of choice, and just overall enjoying your day, please take a moment to reflect on why we have Memorial Day. It is a day to honor those who have fallen defending your right to be free.  There is no greater sacrifice someone can make than dying for you and your freedom.

I know this is primarily a holiday to remember American heroes, but please also remember those brave folks from other countries who have made the ultimate sacrifice at our side.  We've fought beside a lot of brave allies over the years. There's also not many countries in the world that do not have at least one of their descendants in our country and/or military. 

Most of all many thanks to all of our vets and their families, especially those who suffered a loss in the name of our freedom.  Remember, we are free because of the brave!

God bless the men and women in the military, God bless America, and God bless you!

  1. Scot,

    I've often wonder if wishing some one a "Happy" Memorial Day is an appropriate thing. After all, aren't you in effect say happy day of remember those who have died for their country? Not finding fault with it just wondering out loud about what I've been wondering about for years silently.
