We RememberRead the rest of this entry »
Today, American honors all military personnel who have died while serving our country.
This year, there will be no parades or public events at national cemeteries. Community events have gone virtual. The coronavirus pandemic may have prevented us from gathering to pay tribute to those military veterans who died protecting our county, but nothing will keep us from recognizing their sacrifice.
From Green Key Resources we say, "We remember."

More than ever, this is a time to recognize and honor the nurses of the world. Not only does National Nurses Week begin Wednesday, but in recognition of the bicentenary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, the entire year has been designated as the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife.

When Martin Luther King Jr. Day was first declared a national holiday, celebrations were small and quiet affairs. Today, there are parades in cities from coast-to-coast; financial markets and banks are closed; government workers nationally and in many states have the day off; and it is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service.
Calling it a "day on, not a day off," the Corporation for National …

Be Careful With Pets During the HolidaysRead the rest of this entry »
Latke and gelt, turkey and gingerbread, are some of the traditional Hanukkah and Christmas treats that help make the holidays special. For our pets, they can make the season deadly.
Resist the temptation to share your treats with your furry friends. Chocolate is toxic to cats and dogs, and rich foods of any kind can cause gastric distress. Fried foods and turkey leftovers can cause pancreatitis, warns the American Veterinary …
