A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away ...

Blogger's Note: Every year May 4th is celebrated as Star Wars Day as in May The 4th (Fourth) Be With You.  If you don't get it at first, say it a couple of times in a row and you will be speaking like a Jedi before you know it!  

Here's a couple of cool Star Wars Day posts that we saw today that have an eco-friendly or historic message:

1. Saratoga National Historic Park:

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, the Rebel Alliance battled against the repressive, evil Galactic Empire, in order to restore freedom to the galaxy. Nearly 238 years ago in our own galaxy, Rebel Americans fought the forces of the repressive, not-at-all evil British Empire, in order to create a new, independent nation. Both rebellions faced impossible odds but overcame the enemy's military might, numbers, and technology, and in the end were victorious.  ‪#‎MayTheFourthBeWithYou‬
