Today is Alaska Day. The territory was officially handed over to the U.S. from Russia and the American Flag was raised in Sitka in 1867. See what people who don't live in Alaska, think of Alaska with this link.
My daughter Cassie use to joke that Alaska was an island off of the coast of Mexico because that's where it's placed out of convenience for the map makers. Google United States map and you'll see that or no Alaska or Hawaii at all.
It's raining hard today, so it's another down day for mew construction.
