I am getting ready for the long weekend. Memorial Day is this Monday.

I am getting ready for the long weekend. Memorial Day is this Monday.

My preparation includes listening to this beautiful composition ‘Canto Ostinato’ (“Obstinate Song”) written by the Dutch composer Simeon ten Holt, here played by Piano Ensemble.

Good news on Thursday (from the USA Today): “The president of the Boy Scouts of America on Thursday called for an end to the group’s ban on gay troop leaders.” … “I (Robert Gates) must speak as plainly and bluntly to you as I spoke to presidents when I was director of the CIA and secretary of Defense,” he said. “We must deal with the world as it is, not as we might wish it to be. The status quo in our movement’s membership standards cannot be sustained.”

Yes, I am getting ready!

I was too busy (LOL) to go to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show (it ends this Saturday), but I could find this wonderful video. Enjoy!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSmOl0ELp5o
