Suddenly Summertime

Today kicks off Memorial Day Weekend, and the unofficial start of summer. Can it really be summer already? Here in New England, we still had snow on the ground just a couple of weeks ago, so I’m very happy to see the sun shining and the temperatures climbing!

What are you planning for the long weekend? I’m staying home and relaxing, and that seems to be a popular choice this year. With gas prices sky-high again, most folks aren’t travelling too far, choosing to BBQ with the neighbors or camp at the lake rather than take a major trip. Of course, if you’re missing Mom or Uncle Dave, you can still see them for free! GameOn now features Video Chat, so you can connect with your friends and family across the country or across the world!

Memorial Day also marks the last few days for you to enter the May GameOn Giveaway, and the chance to win a Jerry Garcia tie! (I know you didn’t buy that Father’s Day gift yet, so this is a great chance to get Dad a very nice, very FREE present!)
And by the way, all GameOn members are automatically entered into the Giveaway every month, so if you don’t win the May prize, maybe you’d like the June one . . . a diamond ring! Yep, I’m serious: the June GameOn Giveaway prize is a DIAMOND RING! Give it to your girlfriend, give it to your mom, keep it for yourself!  All you have to do to enter is set up a free user profile at http://www.gameon2012.com.

On a more serious note: Whatever we’re all doing to enjoy the long weekend, we should really take a moment to remember what this holiday is all about. Memorial Day is meant to honor the brave men and women who have fallen in service to our country. I know for most of us, the long weekend has come to be celebrated with picnics, parties and vacations, but it started with a very noble purpose. On Monday, May 30th, please take time to remember those who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom.
