Let's stay safe out there!

And now for a moment of culinary history

One of the fun features on FamilySearch is the section on family recipes. We enjoy rolling out some of the old recipe books at holidays. We have a bunch of my grandma's cookie recipes, but on the Fourth of July, I break out my dad's recipe for baked beans. Even with the coronavirus restrictions, that's something we can still enjoy!

Keep your distance

As this is the week of Independence Day in the United States, I've been thinking about symbols of the Revolutionary War.

One of the most famous is the Gadsden flag — often referred to as the "Don't Tread On Me" flag. It was a flag used by the Continental Marines, and it has its roots in a political cartoon by Benjamin Franklin.

The symbol has been co-opted by several groups over the years, and in some contexts can be considered offensive or even racist.

It's not meant to be any of that here. It's just a reminder to wear your mask.

Sometimes the easiest way to get through the day is to keep doing the little things.
