Happy Veterans Day. Thank you for serving our country and protecting our freedoms. This Veteran’s Day, stand with our American heroes, and our wounded warriors. Give them and show them the respect that they deserve.
I have to say that Google has really stepped it up the last year or so with their graphics and innovative illustrations. Bravo to Google for showing your artistic expression and especially today showing your patriotism for our veterans.

Congratulations to Bill de Blasio and New York City’s new First Family. We are looking forward to the inauguration and welcoming Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio. It is important to have diversity at the top.
