August 15 Is Independence Day In #India

Independence Day in India is annually observed on August 15 as a national holiday commemorating the nation’s independence from the United Kingdom.

To all my blogging friends from India I wish you a great day and may your country continue to be a place of cultural and human resources that makes the world a better place. Thank you for your friendship and inspiring me to be a better blogger.

Happy Hanukkah, A Festival Of Faith and Light – #hanukkah #jewish

hanukah-11

Hanukkah is celebrated around the world for eight days and nights. Hanukkah celebrates the victory of the Maccabees or Israelites over the Greek-Syrian ruler, Antiochus about 2200 years ago. A Menorah is a special nine-branched candelabrum, also known in Hebrew as a Hanukiah.

To all my Jewish friends and fellow bloggers who are celebrating this time of faith, light and love have a wonderful time of being together in family and community.

In The Spirit Of The Holiday

In the spirit of Halloween and Christmas perhaps adults can remember what it was to be a child. This is a time when they can use their imagination, pretend to be someone else and to have some fun. Maybe we can rediscover a sense of wonder and play…perhaps a some innocence too. There is too much about life we take to seriously but sometimes we need to let our hair down and have some peace in the chaos.

Happy Halloween everyone.

It’s National Dog Day, Celebrate Canines!

Happy National Dog Day! August 26 is set aside to honor dogs across the nation. Let us celebrate these loyal members of our families who make our lives better. There are also dogs who serve our communities through the police, fire and guide dogs. We owe much to the dogs in our world.

This post is in honor of Cody our Lab-mix and in memory of Mikey our Cock-a-Poo. We love both our boys very much.

Happy Independence Day, Let True Freedom Ring For ALL To Hear 

​I salute those who embody the spirit of America by doing things to make life better for everyone. To my fellow Americans who follow the beat of a different drummer you rock. We are made greater by the nerds and geeks and peacemakers who aren’t afraid to be themselves. 

Our country is made stronger by diversity of race, creed, gender, orientation and thought. To my fellow geek/nerd-Americans your sacrifice of time, talent and treasure is very important and appreciated. May we help our country be the best it can be daily. Grace and peace to everyone this 4th of July.


Happy Independence Day. Let true freedom ring for ALL to hear and feel and to realize.
