It’s that time of the year.

Remember 9/11

17 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning tomorrow. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift of saving lives. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, and never take one second of your life for granted.

Never forget.

Happy holiday! Here are some general safety tips to be safe on the 4th!

Only people from Michigan can claim this.

I’m from Michigan, where we use our hand as a map. Where Tim Allen, Alice Cooper, Madonna, Motown, The White Stripes, Stevie Wonder, Kid Rock, Eminem, Robin Williams, and Bob Segar are from. A vacation was to Cedar Point, Up North, to Florida, or a drive across the Bridge. We are the only large inland peninsula on earth. We love Faygo, Superman Ice Cream, Better Made Chips, Vernor’s, Mackinaw Isla…nd Fudge and Koegels Hot Dogs. We know that the UP is a place not a direction. We play Euchre, Poker, swim in lakes, fish, camp and snowmobile. We bake with “soda” and drink “pop”. We measure distance in hours (its about 2 hours away). We can drive 65 mph in a foot of snow or a blizzard and not even flinch, and still have school.
