Good morning.  We are back from our three day weekend of BBQ's and weekend adventures.  After a long winter in the Northwest, those of us working in Seattle finally enjoyed a weekend filled with sunshine and we sure are thankful.

I hope the memorial day weekend was an opportunity for you to spend time with friends and family.


Memorial day is also a day of remembrance here in the USA. In our family at least, we take time to say thank you and recall.   To honor Memorial day, I am sharing a blog post and visualization I found on Tableau Public designed by Sean Miller to learn more about those that have died in service to the country.
