Happy Memorial Day!

In the United States we are enjoying the start of a three-day weekend. Monday is the holiday--Memorial Day. It is a time to remember those who have served their country and sacrificed for it over the years.

This weekend is also the unofficial "start of summer," and folks are enjoying plenty of outdoor activities, such as cookouts and ballgames.

I hope you are enjoying a safe, happy Memorial Day weekend.
