Happy 4th of July…and a Short Video on Open Mindedness

I hope you’re having a great July, so far!  I’ve been busy with baseball games and work.  I haven’t had as much time to write as I would like.  More stories soon…I promise.

No big posts today.  I hope all my friends on the East Coast are staying cool and have their electricity back.  Otherwise, you’re probably sweltering hot and the last thing you’re doing is reading blogs.

Came across a clever video about being open minded and the importance of critical thinking.   Enjoy, and have a safe and happy 4th of July!
