Flowering Trees

Flowering trees make a beautiful statement in the landscape. I think these are a variety of Magnolia.

Mississippi Veterans Monument

An interesting monument in the heart of downtown Jackson. The inscriptions at the monument to read and reflect is the oath of office which is:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."

A mile a day, keeps a smile-on all day :)

For 2010 Mississippi has claimed the title of fattest state for the fifth consecutive year. We don't feel proud to be at the top of this list. With these awareness initiatives floating around, it should all be an uphill ride from here.
