Well first off, I want to wish you a happy anniversary! Wow, 26 years. My husband and I recently celebrated our 3rd.

Second, I had no idea that there was an International Day of Democracy! So thanks for the info/link. This inspires me to think more about the importance of democracy in my life and maybe to write a blog post about it.

And third, thanks for the mention of the Mayflower pilgrims. I think I may have had a couple of ancestors on that boat. So I'll be thinking of them!

Best wishes.
