In the United States today we are observing Memorial Day to remember the men and women who had served and died in the Armed Forces.
While it is often celebrated as the beginning of cook-out / barbecue season, it is a day when honouring those who have lost their lives in service to our country's military is most important.
With that in mind, we will be dark today and resume our normal blogging activities and ramp up to IBM Innovate tomorrow.

Yes, it's the Independence Day holiday here in the US, and your blog authors are off enjoying a long holiday weekend, complete with parades, fireworks, outdoor concerts, and backyard barbecues.
We'll be back tomorrow with more knowledge to share. Enjoy your day!

Those of us based in the United States will be celebrating Thanksgiving this Thursday, gathering with friends and family to enjoy food, (American-style) football, and of course, there's the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV!
On a related note, as it is a holiday week here, it transpires that both of your Notes from Rational Support authors will be on vacation for the duration, so there may not be a lot of action on this blog next week.
But we have plenty of good stuff queued up for you to keep busy with while we're out; here's just a sampling:
...take our RFE Community survey, to help us plan for next year...
... make sure you are signed up and following us on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter...
... learn more about our products with our IBM Education Assistant modules...
... take a tour of the IBM Support Portal ...
... check out our forums and communities ...
... join the Global Rational User Group ...
... leave a comment and let us know what you'd like to see here next year!
We'll be counting our blessings, which will include YOU, our faithful readers. Thank you!
