Memorial Day

So many times we forget the true meaning of this day. We celebrate the "official" beginning of summer, we party, shop and picnic. We need to remember what this day is all about. We need to honor our men and women who have fought and died for our freedom. We need to honor those men and women who today are fighting for and protecting our freedom. I try every time I see a service man or woman to thank them for their service and keeping me free. We don't know what we have until it is taken away from us. We need to remember that and make sure our politicians do their job and protect our country. If they don't do the job, then they need to be removed. Don't be fooled by eloquent speech, make sure you know the truth behind the words.

I received an email the other day which described a person who was an eloquent speaker, who promised to be for the people. A person who by his words seemed to be perfect for what his country needed at the time. We all had in our minds who this person was as we read the description, the shocker was when you got to the end of this email the person being described was Adolf Hitler. We all know what happened when he came to power. It was our brave men and women who helped to overpower this evil and restore truth and democracy to the world. Let us make sure we are not fooled by pretty words and empty actions, this could happen to us and who would fight for us?

Now that I got that off my chest, I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day and enjoy the pictures of my Clematis.

Wow Apple Is Great

My IPad is great but what is even better is Apple's technical support. I had a problem with blogger and they were very helpful, finding an Application for blogger on IPad. Apple really protects it's customer they will not allow programs on that could potentially hurt your computer. They will not allow a program to be sold until it meets their stringent requirments. MY next computer will be an Apple, no more crashes or lock ups. Its a great product.

My New IPad Keyboard

Blue Bird

This entry is using my new wireless keyboard. A little different than a regular one, but much more convenient . The weather is miserably hot, a preview of summer. Thank heaven for air-conditioning. I am moving along on my dress that I cut out. I am hoping this will turn out to be flattering and I can make some more. I much prefer dresses to skirts or pants. I am moving along on my Buttercup top in Zoe Sock, it may get done by the end of summer. Nothing much is going on, so I will write soon.

My First Post on My IPad

This should be interesting typing on a virtual key board. I seem a little faster. The weather is getting warmer which means I will be inside more. More time for knitting I hope. It is coming up on the one year anniversary of our accident, a year is suppose to make a difference. I don't know about that, I am still extremely tired and still can't do a lot of what I want. I wonder some days if I'll ever get back to feeling like I did before the accident. This has just aggravated my fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Such is life, at least we survived relatively unscathed. I thank God for that everyday.

Enough of my pity party. There are wonderful things in the world, I just have to figure out how to see and do them without tiring myself out. I need to transfer so pictures on to my IPad, I don't have many on here yet, and I can't have a post without a picture. I need to get out in my garden and taken some. The clematis is blooming it's head off, and taking over front walk.

Well this wasn't to bad I still think it be easier when I get my wireless keyboard. TTFN
