Two Heroes To Note In One Week.

Earlier this week I celebrated one of the happier days of each of my years for as far back as I can remember, this year it was extra special because the Ground Hog on Staten Island, NY bit mayor Michael Bloomberg. Too bad it did not sever an artery. I got a bit of amusement out of that if only because it showed that even a rodent knew Bloomberg was an enemy.

Today is another day in February that I celebrate, but a much more serious one. Today is the birthday of the greatest president within my lifetime. No, I do not mean Jimmy E. Carter Jr., Barack H. Obama, Lyndon B. Johnson, George W. Bush, William J. Clinton, John F. Kennedy, Gerald R. Ford, George H.W. Bush, Richard M. Nixon, Dwight D. Eisenhower (you will note I listed them in ascending order as to level of their worth as president in my opinion - but that can change as the current one carries out his term).

I do mean Ronald W. Reagan. He was a true man among men, a true leader of our nation, a guiding light to the rest of the world. He simply was the best who got more accomplished in his tenure as president than any other president I have experienced during my 50 plus years on this earth. Today I salute him and his memory.

All the best,
Glenn B

Sure do miss the Gipper. That ground hog deserves some kind of reward!
