From the Editor's Computer Sometimes in life, you find a special friend;
Someone who changes your life
just by being part of it.
Someone who makes you laugh
until you can't stop;
Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world.
Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it.
This is Forever Friendship.
-author unknown We all need friends in this life. People who will know how we think and can give us another perspective on whatever is happening around us, who stand by us no matter what we’re going through, and who help us put the stress in our lives in its proper place.
However, it is also important that we each be that type of friend to others. Friendship is a two-way street. To have a friend, you have to be a friend.
To my friends who have a special place in my heart and life...thank you for your friendship.

Summer…camping trips and RV adventures...visits with family and friends...day trips to museums, zoos, and more.
Summer means a lot of time spent driving on the highways and byways. It also is a time when many people seem to have a heavy foot as they eagerly travel to their destination.
Various companies have calculated the savings accrued by speeding. Unfortunately they are in miles so I had to do some converting. For a 30 mile (48.3 km) trip, if you drive 70 mph (112.7 km/h) it will take you 25 minutes, 43 seconds. Traveling at 60 mph (96.6 km/h) will take you 30 minutes. If you travel my speed - just a bit faster than 55 mph (at 90 km/h) then the trip takes approximately 32 minutes. (http://fetinsurance.com/speed.htm)
So a heavy foot doesn’t really save you lots of time or get you to your destination any faster. If anything, it really slows you down as you end up sitting at the tracks waiting for a train to pass for about 7 minutes longer than I do! :-)
Enjoy your summer and stay safe!
