Summer is a refreshing time of year. It is a time of relaxation and relief. Memories are made, and happiness can be found. Good times always come with summer, for example, summer love, summer jobs and summer vacations. Everyone deserves a break from the everyday lull of life. It isn't exciting waking up at the same time every day, going to the same job, completing the same household chores and talking to the same people. As long as there is repetition in our lives, there will be a need for vacations. Summer vacations are all around us.
When I first heard the radio news report last week my initial reaction was how ridiculous is that. The story was the U.S. military had entered the domestic wind generation scene by putting a halt to all construction. The Pentagon is worried about the towers' effect on military radar operations. Why would the Pentagon get in such a huff about that, I wondered.
