Monday Musings - June 6, 2011

1. Happy D-Day--please pause to remember the sacrifices of those who served to protect our freedom and the brave men who stormed the beaches of Normandy to secure freedom for Europe from the oppression of the Nazi's.

2. OK--his name is Jackson and he is a movie critic--and he was on the Today Show.  I recommend him for family movie reviews. Family Movie Reviews

3. If you want a laugh--check out Nicole's random quotes of the day in her blog: Our Crazy Family

4. Family gatherings bring out the best and the worst in all of us.  It reminds us why we like to get together and  and also why we live apart!

5. Space, the final frontier seems to be slipping farther and farther from us when once we embraced it as the new frontier.

6. Highway driving can be exciting and boring. I'd rather it was boring.

7. I've had the chance to drive through long stretches of rolling green mountains during the past couple of days--and it reminded me how much open space there really is out there that we need to protect.

8. Ugh. My coffee pot continues to give me fits.  Nothing puts a damper on a morning more quickly than coffee pot problems.

9. I visited some Finger Lakes wineries yesterday. Part of me would love to have a vineyard--but I'm sure the mystique of owning and trying to run it would soon wear off.

10. Driving home yesterday, we saw many old cars on the highway. It was fun to look at them and think of the era gone by  and how far our cars (and our highways) have come in terms of MPG, safety, and comfort.
