happy Veteran's Day

Long may she wave!Just wanted to say how much I appreciate and respect all the men and women in our armed forces, our military is the core of our freedom. 

As I go on with my little life each day, worrying about my family and my work and cycling and sailing, my problems are all little problems.  All over the world there are people whose lives are not their own, who don’t have the freedom to do what they want, and say what they want, and take control over their own existence.  It is easy for us to forget this, easy for us to take our life in America for granted.  But for our military we would not be able to life this way. 

So, thanks!
