I am still working on the next project for the magazine. It is one of those that I have had to do some trial and error with to make things work and find the best way to do things. Sometimes experimenting takes a bit of time.
With that said, I don’t have much of a progress report today. But that is OK. It is a holiday here in Canada anyway, as it is in the United States.
Yesterday one of my friends here on Lumberjocks posted a wonderful story honoring a group of veterans called “Dolittle’s Raiders.” The story really moved me and reminded me of the sacrifices that many have made so that we all can live the way we do today. I think that sometimes when people get used to things such as freedom, they being to take it for granted, as if it just “happened” and was always the way. It certainly was not and the cost for all of our rights and freedoms that we enjoy today was very high.
I hope you follow the link and read this story and take a moment from your busy day to think about all the things that you enjoy because of the brave men and women such as these. Without them, our lives would be very different.

Thank you to all of the veterans.
We appreciate you not only today, but every day.
