Yesterday was Flag Day June 14th…and it is marked in my neighborhood with flags on every lamp post, a parade, and color guard celebration on the high school lawn.

The day commemorates the American flag, Old Glory, standing tall and flying free over American soil for 228 years is the symbol of: Freedom, Democracy, National Pride, and History. Many have lost their lives defending it.

My favorite show for  Friday night relaxation is SAY YES TO THE DRESS on TLC.  Kleinfeld Bridal Shop in Manhattan/Chelsea is the focus of the show finding the perfect wedding dress for the bride. Randy, the manager is hilarious, and his staff is superb, professional and diplomatic, practicing finesse with family members to please.  Will the style be mermaid, ball gown, backless or strapless?  So many choices.

“The Great Pumpkin Will Come”, shouts Linus as he writes a letter every year to the Great Pumpkin to visit him in the pumpkin patch.  Charlie Brown is in disbelief and says it is a waste of time.  Peppermint Patty is convinced the Great Pumpkin is a fake.  And Snoopy is laughing. Love watching this TV special every October.  Will the Great Pumpkin come and bring Linus wisdom?  Should [...]
