Think “upscale” for a posh swimming pool party everyone will talk about. Create a modern lounge vibe using a basic “black-and-white” theme. Provide black and white lounge chairs. Have hip bar appetizers like sweet potato french fries and mini sliders. Create a few signature cocktails served in stylish glasses. Float beds and chairs in the water for the guests to relax on while sipping a cocktail. Play club music in the background to keep the party moving.

Independence Day

The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.

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.

Strawberry Moon

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.

Weed Your Garden

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.
