Today, for those of us who live in America, we have the day off. Holiday weekends are always an appreciated respite from the rigors of daily life. In my particular case, I added a few extra days and made a trip of the occasion, so I’m on an extended vacation. I really hope that you are all enjoying your day and (if you are taking some time away from the computer) perhaps you won’t see this posting until the 5th or so. It’s a nice weekend (depending on where you are) so everyone should get outside and enjoy it. You never know when the aliens might show up and attack… but if they should, we’ve got Bill Pullman to pull us together!
If you are a citizen of the United States, today you should be celebrating Veteran’s Day. Call a veteran you know and thank them for their service.
Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year. It’s a fun holiday where people get to mess around, have a good time… and family isn’t involved. For me, since about middle school, it’s been all about the decorating. I’ve done a lot of different decoration effects over the years, once I went as far as turning our 3 car garage into an haunted house once. This year wasn’t quite so elaborate, but it was greatly improved by the use of Arudino.
Today is Columbus Day (here in the USA). Many people get today off. Personally, I’m not one of them. If you are, you could spend the day reading about the man himself.
