More Winner Announcements , The Week Ahead at ScatteredThoughts and Happy Fourth of July!





Happy Sunday All!  This is the lead up to the 4th of July Celebration here in the US, so preparations are underway for picnics, barbecues, and gatherings of family and friends to celebrate our country.  There will be parades and fireworks and sunburns and way too much food.  I am having people over, family and friends, so we are working to get everything ready.  Time is tight so may I wish all Americans here and abroad a Happy 4th!  I hope you all have a wonderful time!

✰And as we celebrate our Independence this 4th of July a special shout out to all the warriors out there, all the veterans and all their support at home and abroad!  A heartfelt thank you to you all for your sacrifice and duty.  You are greatly appreciated and remembered.
