Memorial Day Activities

Memorial Day is a special day when America honors the valiant men and women who sacrificed their lives in the service of their country. On this day, flowers and flags are placed on the graves to honor these fallen heroes. Parades, flag-raising ceremonies, dedications of memorials and programs are held to commemorate this day. One can also see flags flown at half-mast in both public and commercial establishments.

This being a holiday, Americans head to the beach or go on camping trips. It has also been a tradition for families to hold barbecues and pool parties. This morning, hubby and I went shopping at a gourmet Italian market, bakery and specialty food store at Coral Springs for our special dinner tonight. This holiday has given me another excuse to pig out. Maybe it's time for me to start looking for supplements for weight loss. Any ideas?
