I know I said I was going to write about cleaning do's and don't's on cooktops but something way more important came up.
Today is Veteran's Day. What does that mean? Yes, it may be a holiday that you don't have to go to school or work but the day is so much more important. The reason you get this day off is because of all the courageous men and women that have fought and are fighting for the everyday rights that we, more often than not, take for granted living here in the good old U S of A.
I hit me hard this weekend when I got several posts on my Facebook page from Valley Oak Appliance in Elk Grove, CA. They employ many vets - from Viet Nam to Afghanistan - and my hat is off to these guys and to Valley Oak, both for the service and sacrifice they have given to our country and the service that Valley Oak is giving for employing these guys.
If you are an employer, of any sort, and are looking for good employees, do not forget to contact your local Veteran's Affair Office. These men and women have put their lives on the line for you - giving them a job is the least we can do for them. Our own founding father, George Thomas, and our salesperson, Roy Wilson, both served in the Marine Corps - Semper Fi!
So make a special effort to thank any service people you see tomorrow (or any time) and let them know we appreciate them! Also, these people are often far from home and won't have a chance to get home for the holidays - contact your Armed Services and find out how you can send a care package or letters to them to help brighten their holidays!
Have a great week!
