Happy Memorial Day! Welcome to Grilling Season!

Happy Memorial Day!  It seems appropriate for this first post to take place on the official start of grilling season.  After all, grilling, barbecuing and eating meat are among my favorite things to do.

Today is bittersweet however.  We’ve been at war for over a decade with many lives lost.  I thank all our servicemen – past, present, and future for preserving our freedom to live our lives.  Take time today to think about how blessed we are to live in this country.  Go to a parade, visit a cemetery, thank a soldier.  Remember those who have gone before you.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Very rarely do I come across a blog that’s both informative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your blog is important; the issue is something that not enough people are talking intelligently about.
