I salute electricians for their risky job just to serve people. A friend of mine takes up electrician schools in california and he told me how hard it is but he said he also enjoy and love what he did.

The Christmas parade, which will step off from Monticello High school at 11.30 will be really an awesome experience. The photo shared by Steve Hoffman for the preparation of the parade is wonderful to watch. What i like the most was the theme that is “Come Home for Christmas”.
