Thank You!
Welcome New Subscribers! 
Thank you to all who have served and are still serving in the military.  Thank you for fighting for the freedoms we all enjoy. So often we take them for granted. 
I was in Washington, D.C., this past weekend.  There, I was reminded of many who gave their lives for our freedom as I walked through memorials in their honor - the World War II Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, and the Vietnam War Memorial.  It was an incredibly moving experience.
I'd also like to thank all the taxpayers in our country.  I know this may sound odd, but while we were in D.C., we visited several government buildings and museums - all of which included free admission. Some of them are supported by donations in addition to government funds, but I liked not having to choose what to see based on cost. (I'll write more about our busy weekend soon).  
One of the most interesting museums we visited was the National Air and Space Museum. I enjoyed learning more about the Wright Brothers, Amelia Earhart, and many other pioneers.  Thank you for your inspiration.
I hope you enjoy reading the posts this week. Share the newsletter with your family and friends! If you are reading your friend's newsletter, you can sign up for your own

The application process is simple but it took more time than I expected.  Here is how it all worked:

Global Entry and TSA Pre-Check

When applying for Global Entry, TSA Pre-check comes as an added benefit.  If you would like to apply for Pre-check alone, the cost is $85.  Global Entry costs $100 but includes Pre-check at no extra charge.  For either option, the fee covers five years of benefits. If you apply...

Driving Around Dingle Peninsula

The coast of the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland is beautiful!  The best way to see it is to drive the circle on Road R559.

My daughter and I were in Ireland last year and were excited to see the peninsula.  We were staying with my daughter’s friend, S-.

S- had a car and was willing to drive us around – which was great, since neither of us were interested in driving on the left side of the road.  I’ve heard it’s not that bad, so maybe we’ll try it next time.  Guided tours of the peninsula are available as another option.

The Dingle Peninsula is the northernmost of the peninsulas in County Kerry on the west side of Ireland...
