Fourth of July!

Hello Patriots,

Happy Fourth of July! I hope you can find some time to light up a sparkler, participate in a pie eating contest, start up the grill and celebrate another year for the United States. Happy 227th America!

I'm proud of our troops protecting this country. Whether you're a U.S. citizen or not, the U.S.and British Armed Forces deserve the highest respect for their dedicated and courageous service to this country (and world). It's sometimes easy to get caught up in our own lives and take our freedoms for granted. Please keep the troops and their families in your thoughts and prayers as they continue to fight for freedom and against the inexplicable hate of this world.

Have you designed your site in a Fourth of July theme or posted any special messages supporting our troops? Please share with the eteamz community and post your site up on the Team News & More message board.

Ericha (aka 101 with Ericha) received some nice praise last month. I want to shout out a big THANK YOU to her. Here's what one of the eteamz members wrote in response to their help from Ericha: "Just a quick note to say thanks to the entire eteamz support staff that helped me thru the process of getting my brackets posted on Tournament Builder Pro. You guys were terrific - I could never ask for greater assistance - you were complete professionals - I can't thank you enough." Nice work Ericha. Our goal is to provide everyone a similar experience here at eteamz.
