Do not forget … Our Military & Their Families This Memorial Day! What is Memorial Day to most of Americans? Is it hamburgers, hotdogs, barbecues, concerts, sales or…What does it Mean to you? I was at the store yesterday the parking lots were full. This was not just at one store it was at all three major supermarket stores here in Ellensburg, WA. I thought to myself “oh.. families and groups were getting together to celebrate this wonderful thought-filled holiday.” Oh I was stupid! I have either been living in a small town for too long or getting too old! They were kids from all over including Canada packing up their cars and ice chests with food, beer, wine and ice for the great “Concert at the Gorge”, Referred as: Sasquatch! Music Festival 2012.
Have you ever been to the Gorge in George, Washington? Well here is a link to the Gorge’s Web site: Click Here
“The Gorge is an Amphitheatre that sits above the Columbia River Gorge in George, Washington. It can hold 20,000 concert-goers is known for its spacious lawn-seating and breath-taking views of the river. In 2004, Glide Magazine named The Gorge the top outdoor venue in the United States. It has on-site camping and the area’s summer weather is generally perfect outdoor concert weather.” Click Here for More Information:
There are apparently over 150 different bands and comedy acts going to participate in the venue! Maybe the kids of today will celebrate their freedom this way. Hopefully they understand the sacrifices that have been made to kids their own age, families and service folks who have fought for their freedom enabling them this choice or NOT!
Memorial Day sometimes gets forgotten however this year it seems to be remembered more. Not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. If we did not have the wars, so many folks would not have been so touched by the memories of death and sacrifice.
If you are enjoying the friendship of family and friends at picnics, parades, camping or at the concert please just stop On Memorial Day and Remember to be thankful for the Peace and Freedom we have, how we got it & the sacrifices that were made for us to have it!

Purse hangers or bag hangers work for both Men & Women. Have you ever used a restroom with a purse, lap top case, briefcase in your hand and no place to hang it? You look at the floor, no hangers and you have only two choices, either place it on the floor or hold on to it with your teeth.
Well Purse Hangers, bag hangers give you choices. Hang your articles on a hook, off of the floor! This way you are not carrying with you all different kinds of bacteria that you could carry home to your family! These also are very nice gifts for office parties, secret Santa parties or even wedding gifts for your guests!
