Summer Solstice

Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year happened June 20th here in So. California. So far the weather is warm and humid with occasional rain and thunder. All in all a great day to get out and enjoy the day – nothing special, just a great day. I hope your summer days are enjoyable too!

…Tuesday, December 21 at 10:59 EST in the Northern Hemisphere, marks the Winter Solstice. This is the first day of winter. The shortest day and the longest night. What does this mean for you? Absolutely nothing!

Except, it’s a day to enjoy life, spend time with family and friends. Go out and play in nature – it’s beautiful! It’s a time to generate new ideas, reflect on life and plan for a prosperous future. A time of giving and gratitude.

Give someone a hug and say Happy Solstice. It will confuse the heck out of them. 😎

Give Thanks

Remember to give thanks to those around you. You can give a smile, a thank you, a cup of coffee, a bag of groceries, an extra tip, or a pair of shoes when out and about. Spend time at home with family if you can or have a long conversation with a friend who lives far away. Be thankful – be kind!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Fourth of July.

The day the Declaration of Independence

Today and every day, I want to thank all sons and daughters,
brothers and sisters, fathers and mothers,
grandfathers and grandmothers, great-grandparents,
great-great-grandparents who served
and are still serving in our military.

Today we celebrate your courage and determination.

We are a grateful nation.
