On a personal note
Today is a wonderful and Patriotic Day to 
celebrate our Independence here in the United States.
There are a lot of BBQ'S, Pool Party's, Parades and Fire Works.
 Both of my grandsons went to the 
local town Carnival last night.  My two year old grandson,
Jacob, went on a couple of rides for the first time and enjoyed
dancing to the music from the live band playing on the town common.  My other grandson, Luke, is only 8 weeks old and he
slept through the whole event. ;-)
Its raining right now, but it will hopefully clear up
later this afternoon.
I'm looking forward to going to a nice family
BBQ today.  I hope that all of you enjoy a
very pleasant day as well!
