I see so many people drag into work each day depressed to be there. So many leave the person they love because of other people’s truly irrelevant opinions. Stop! Living for other people will get you nowhere when it comes to your happiness.
The latter part of last week was spent putting together the 9/11 tribute pages you will see a few pages over. As I designed and laid out the pages, I looked through a few quotes hoping to find one to use on the page. I finally settled on one from former President George W. Bush that I think fit nicely as a tribute to that dreadful day.

This weekend was one of those weekends were there was not much accomplished. I have not been feeling so great lately after a few blood pressure issues. This weekend I tried to get out and do a couple things which ended with me feeling pretty bad, but it is Monday and I am here with a looming deadline for the next special edition.

The Fourth is over and we are all settling back into a regular routine as we prepare to finish out summer. Most of you, like me, spent last week celebrating the birth of our nation. We had a cookout, saw some fireworks, wore our patriotic shirts, and tried to escape the heat.
