On Memorial Day, we tend to honor those who served but didn’t make it home. But they are not the only ones we should remember.

Over the past 40 years, an average of 20 veterans committed suicide EVERY DAY, with a spike in the last few years in particular. Most of these are due to emotional distress from combat.

These casualties are just as dead as those killed on the battlefield. Though they physically came home, emotionally they never did. Please remember and honor them too this weekend.

This weekend enjoy the opening of swimming pools, a barbecue, and good fellowship with friends and family. Then remember how much it has cost for us to enjoy these things. The men and women who died in service to our country will not get to enjoy these things this weekend. Please remember them.

One by one the count begins for my generation. I know that this is not the first but it is close to my heart.

Today, my daughter (who is almost 7), was being mildly scolded for sitting with her shoes on the new chairs and cushions at the dining room table. We told her she could mark up the cushions that way. Her aunt suggested that she take off the cute Mary Jane’s she was wearing. My daughter replied, “No way! That would ruin my Gothic look.“ That’s my little girl!

To make a FB account, or not to make a FB account. To be honest, I'm wary, given FB's track record. If I do, little of substance will be posted in public there (or private). Mostly I will be using it to stay in touch with people from afar, or get in contact with people I miss that I've lost contact with. Thoughts?

I've blown up all my circles. I had too much deadweight in there, too many people who haven't posted in over 1-2 years.

If you have +1'd something of mine recently, or posted something I can see, or replied to my posts, I'll likely follow you and add you to circles. If not, I probably won't. So if you aren't sure, +1 here.

Old school eclipse viewer I made for my daughter. For those wondering how it works, you stand with the sun behind you over your shoulder shining on to the aluminum foil, which has a pinhole in it. Inside the box the bottom is covered with white paper. You look through the hole in the box while the light from the eclipse shines on the foil and the pinhole and you can see the shape of the sun and the shape of the moon covering it. The smaller the pinhole, the sharper the image.
