This summer is going to be very buggy. There are already some voracious mosquitoes buzzing my yard and the 17 year cicadas are here this year. Or is it the 13 year cicadas? I don’t know which brood is here, but they are loud and crawling all over everything – trees, chimneys, and doghouses. I’ve also seen a variety of bees and wasps, several sizes of ants, and this morning a flock (if that’s the proper names for a group of these) lady bugs.

On Memorial Day, we are reminded that so many men and women have fought for our country and have paid for our freedoms dearly, many with their lives. So if you see a veteran today, make sure you say thank you. We take a lot for granted in our country, but when you stop and think about it, we really are the best country in the whole world, and our freedoms have been bought and paid for over the years with real lives.
One of the hot topics in the news is education reform. I realize our schools are not meeting the needs of the students in today’s world and they are not producing the future employees that tomorrows companies are going to want to hire and pay well. This worries me quite a bit. Today’s children are tomorrows doctors, teachers and auto mechanics. Let’s all make sure we help these children achieve better educational goals.
