Never Forget 9/11 Tribute

911-tribute-plaque

It is still stirring watching some of the video replays of that horrible day in history 12 years later. It was a black eye on mankind perpetuated by the evil that exists in our lives. We must never forget what happened, and try our best to pay homage to those that were lost that day and for the families and friends who lost a part of themselves as well. This tribute video was created 7 years ago, and the powerful images will make your heart hurt for a bit, but I think we need to feel it in some small way each year. On Labor Day Weekend of 2001 I took my first tour of the Statue of Liberty with some friends who never visited NYC before. A few days later, the Twin Towers were gone, and my picture that I took in the most perfect of conditions is something I will cherish forever. We must never forget.

Remembering My Dad with my favorite review

happy fathers day

I did this “Mysterious Meat Thing” review with my Dad and a little bit with my Mom, in a time during my Dad’s fight with Cancer where he was feeling better. It ended up being a very funny videp and something I can look back at and smile remembering my Dad. Later that year he passed away when the Cancer spread and ultimately won the fight. On Father’s Day, I want those people out there to embrace their Dad not only today because it’s their day, but to treat him as if everyday was his last with you. Even if it is just an everyday appreciated word of love and/or caring gesture. We all have our fights, arguments, as I did with my Dad, but in the end I know he loved me and did his best to guide me to do the right things in life. I honor him today as I look back at this video and share this memory with all my friends out there.

Happy Father’s Day. Love ya Pops!

Memorial Day: We Will Never Forget

Memorial Day Tribute pic

I found this wonderful Memorial Day tribute, and wanted to share it with you. Memorial Day is often thought of as the beginning of the BBQ season, the opening of the beaches, the start of warmer weather, but many of us get lost in our own personal lives and forget the real meaning why we celebrate this day. So many men and women sacrificed their lives to protect our freedom and secure our borders. They fought with us and along side us, with our colors and with the colors of our allies. We take for granted all the things we have and can’t truly comprehend all the souls that were lost to give us our way of life. Today, Memorial Day, we remember all those that gave their lives for us. We honor their memory with our praise and prayers. Thank you is not nearly enough, but it is the least we can do today. So don’t just think about the number of brats you need on the grill or whether or not you want to add potato salad and cole slaw for your festivity or how much sunscreen you need. Think about our brave soldiers that gave their lives for you.

Thanks to Sarah Eubanks for creating such a great tribute video.

R.I.P. John M. McAlonan

Mac at Zestfest

We got the sad notice from Mark Rodriguez from Alamo Pepper Products that we lost one of our own the other day. Some of you might know John as Mac from Fire on the Ridge. He was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer last year. Sold his business, and spent the rest of his time with his family. Mark described him as “One of the most kindest people I had the pleasure of meeting, and knowing…He was a really good guy.” You can read his Obituary HERE

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of Mac’s family and friends.
