Independence Day

A day off work as we celebrate Korean independence from Japan. They didn't really gain independence on August 15, 1945 as they were divided in two to be controlled by Soviets and the Americans.

I guess we are just celebrating the lifting of Japanese rule which was arguably brutal for nearly half a century. Thank you America!

Check out this slide show of Korea's history. It is captivating.

It has been raining here....a lot. The North Koreans are dealing with massive flooding and have called for international aid. Floods all over in South Asia and Korea...and back home in Montana the state is burning up with numerous wildfires. Certainly makes life interesting.
