I realize that wars are necessary sometimes. However it now seems that we are engaged in forever wars and the military industrial complex prefers to have conditions of permanent warfare, something I do not support. However the people that do battle for our country deserve nothing less that our full support and respect.
Memorial Day is a day when we pay tribute to all that went to battle on our behalf. Thanks for your service and to the families that have lost loved ones, thanks for your sacrifice.
I started this blog on 02/06/2012 with a post on Captain Beefheart. Since then I have added 500 followers not including those that follow on Red Bubble Twitter,Digg,Facebook,Pinterest etc. I have published 575 posts and over 200 hundred articles for EHOW. Counting EHOW and Red Bubble views my works have been viewed by over 2 million times in 35 countries.
All that said, I am most proud of the 500 followers of this blog. I only know a few of you personally and also am connected to those people through Facebook,telephone and face to face visits. However the rest of you check in regularly, like and comment on my posts and share with me your own unique view of the world. Thanks for reading, thanks for posting and have a wonderful holiday season!
As for us, next week in Cancun, home a week and than off to Florida for two months. It’s time to get out from being in front of the computer and back behind the lens for a while. So although posts will be erratic over the next couple of months they will all include new images from a variety of location so please stay tuned. This is a SUNRISE, not a SUNSET.
Tomorrow we are shipping up to Boston to see family and friends and enjoy a great meal. However, it is not so great for these guys! There is no hunting where we live so these guys are safe. Most of us will eat farm raised turkey’s tomorrow or maybe Tofurkey. Still in the spirit of the Native Americans we stole this land from, I want to thank these turkeys for giving their lives so we can provide sustenance at our family gatherings. I also want to give thanks for my family and friends, this wonderful country and those who defend it and to my increasingly larger number of fans who follow and read this blog. Have a great holiday!
