Housekeeping: Happy Memorial Day
May 25th, 2018 6:05 PM Share
You may have noticed a slowdown in posts this afternoon. That’s because it’s Memorial Day weekend and I told the staff to knock off early.
Hopefully, you’ve already punched out and are reading this from someplace other than your office.
We’ll have a few posts here and there throughout the weekend, but we’re off Monday. So enjoy the barbecues, the Indy 500, and the pool, and don’t forget why this holiday exists in the first place (to honor war dead, since you forgot).
See you Tuesday. Until then, play nice and don’t drink and/or text and drive.

"I told the staff to knock off early." Thanks for reminding me there are still bosses like you. And yes, will pause to remember the fallen, and then embrace the living.
I’m going on record and predicting a fourth Indy 500 win for Helio tomorrow.
Just got back from a trip to Europe including Normandy Beach and the American Cemetery where (40%) of those who were killed are buried. It should be noted that the other 60% of the dead were relocated back to the states-by the U.S government if that was what the family wanted. You look at all those white crosses and you really realize "freedom isn't free". I currently have a Son serving in a place I can't even mention.....
Memorial Day is about remembering and honoring dead soldiers. I think of all the 18, 19, 20 year old's that were killed far from their families. Most died violently before their life really got started while we pound hot dogs or buy a new car or appliance on sale. The fact people celebrate this day makes me cringe.
