Sunglasses have long been associated with glamour, “coolness,” and are one and the same with Dollywood elite. While not everyone wants to be like the Bollywood elite, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that most would enjoy looking a little bit “cooler” or perhaps a little bit edgier. Regardless of your goal, sunglasses are a final piece that can bring together anybody’s personal style, which is a benefit.

June's full moon comes on the same day as the summer solstice.  This month's strawberry moon will have an added bonus -- it will fall on the same day as the 2016 summer solstice for the first time in decades.  A strawberry moon is another name for June's full moon.  The June solstice is often used to mark the first day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. Don't worry about missing the moon at its most full, however. It will appear almost as big the night before and after it hits its peak because it will remain more or less opposite the sun, according to astronomers.

One of the best gardening tips is to stay in control of your garden.  Weeds grow fast, very fast and can soon become overwhelming.  If you stay on top of them, it is much easier to maintain your garden.  Weeding 5 or 10 minutes each day will make the job seem bearable and maybe even a little bit enjoyable and you will be in control and the weeds will not!

Thank God It's Monday

National Thank God It's Monday Day, tgim, goes into the question mark bin. We're not sure why we celebrate the first Monday of the year. Perhaps it's to be different, since on every other week we typically thank God it's Friday (tgif). If you find it difficult to get into the spirit of being thankful for the first Monday, perhaps you could tweak the celebration into National Thank God Monday's Over (tgmo) with your choice of spirited beverage at workday's end.

Each year in the U.S. Americans pay tribute to those who have fallen while defending our country on Memorial Day, and the late May holiday also marks the unofficial beginning of summer.  We thank the men and women defending the United States of America and those who gave their lives in wars' past for their sacrifice.



Memorial Day is considered the unofficial start of summer for most people in the United States. It’s a day that the grills are fired up, the kids are running around playing and, of course, it is a day of remembrance. - See more at: http://courier-tribune.com/opinion/staff-columns/unofficial-start-summer-starts-here#sthash.SZCCaaYc.d

Trees precede human life on Earth by hundreds of millions of years, so let’s have a little respect, shall we? For our part, Americans have attempted to make up for lost time by celebrating Arbor Day every year since 1872 (over a million trees were estimated to have been planted in that year alone).

Pet Sounds is the 11th studio album by the American rock band the Beach Boys, released on May 16, 1966. It met with a lukewarm critical and commercial response in the United States, peaking at number 10 in the Billboard 200. In the United Kingdom, the album was hailed by its music press and was an immediate commercial success, peaking at number 2 in the UK Top 40 Albums Chart and remaining among the top ten positions for six months. Pet Sounds has subsequently garnered worldwide acclaim from critics and musicians alike, and is widely considered to be one of the most influential albums in music history.
