Happy Anniversary to everyone at West Point.

The Historic Thayer Hotel at West Point Turns 88

The Historic Thayer Hotel at West Point celebrates its 88th anniversary. In 1926, the doors opened to welcome and house the friends and families of cadets, military personnel, and world leaders visiting The United States Military Academy. In 2014, the hotel has seen multimillion dollar renovations to accommodate modern comforts, but it has not lost its grandeur and glory in the process. Even though our physical appearance may change throughout the years, our demeanor will not. No matter how many years pass, you will always be greeted by a young man or woman holding our entrance doors open, saying,
"Welcome to The Historic Thayer Hotel at West Point."

Memorial Day – For most it is a three-day weekend, filled with bar-b-que’s and picnics . . . A time to get away from the normal humdrum of the week. For other’s it’s the beginning of summer, a time to look towards the long lazy days and a time to plan your summer get-a-ways. Though for some, Memorial Day holds a special significance.
On May 5, 1868, an order issued by General John Logan established a day of remembrance for those soldiers who died during the Civil War. May 30, 1868, was the day designated for this observance and flowers were placed on the graves of the fallen soldiers of both the Union and Confederate Armies. New York was the first state to officially recognize this observance in 1873 and in 1971 with the passage of the National Holiday Act; Memorial Day was designated as the last Monday of May.
Now for many of us, the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, WWI, WWII, and the Korean War are ancient history. The Vietnam War a fading memory. But with the recent Operations Desert Storm, Enduring Freedom, and Iraqi Freedom we, the American people have once again been thrust into a position of remembering those who are fighting and dying today.
Now, as we see our fellow citizens arrive back from a foreign land, we should not forget those words that each and every soldier spoke upon enlistment. Because when we look upon a returning soldier from conflict, a disabled veteran, or a grave marker – those words should ring in your conscience.
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic . . . streaming from the eyes of the returning soldier. That I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the Officers appointed over me . . . sounding from the stumbling gait of the disabled veteran. According to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God . . ....

Another 5,500 acres are cultivated in Chile, Quebec, and British Columbia. There are nearly 1,000 cranberry growers in America. Normally, growers do not have to replant since an undamaged cranberry vine will survive indefinitely. In fact, some vines on Cape Cod are more than 150 years old

Fun Facts about Lights:

1) The average elephant weighs about 6 tons, or 12,000 pounds. Sounds like a lot, right? Do you know how many greenhouse gases we could keep out of the air if we all switched just five of our household fixtures to LED. You might be surprised to hear that if every American home changed five lamps from incandescent to LED , the country could prevent one trillion pounds of greenhouse gases from polluting our air. That's about 83 million elephants.

What are Greenhouse gases | Vanguard LED Lights

The average US person consumes 2.8 gallons of oil (fossil fuel) per day or 2 barrels per month.
What can we do to use less?
If you changed 4 60watt incandescent lights to energy efficient lights which uses only 10 watts you would save the equivalent of Greenhouse Gas emissions as 33.9 gallons of gas in 1 year. link to blog http://www.vanguardledlights.com/shop/?p=367

Naturally forming chemical compounds found in the Earth’s atmosphere act as “greenhouse gases.” These gases allow sunlight/energy to enter through earth’s atmosphere unrestricted. When the light hits earth surface, part of it bounces back towards space as heat. Greenhouse gases absorb the heat a...
