Beautiful day here. I have the Stars & Stripes flying, great day for grilling.

Happy Independence Day! (Much better than the nickname. )

I like what John Adams wrote to his wife on July 3 1776. Read the link if you don't know why he said the 2nd and why we celebrate the 4th instead.

"The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indepe...ited_States%29

Hey John! Still here after 239 years! (Query: is that a record for a unchanged government structure for a country?)

Happy 4th Everyone!

"England, since the conquest, has known some few good monarchs, but groaned beneath as much larger number of bad ones, yet no man in his senses can say that their claim under William the Conqueror is a very honorable one. A French bastard, landing with an armed banditti, and establishing himself king of England against the consent of the natives, is in plain terms a very paltry rascally original. It certainly hath no divinity in it. However, it is needless to spend much time in exposing the folly of hereditary right, if there are any so weak as to believe it, let them promiscuously worship the ass and lion, and welcome. I shall neither copy their humility, nor disturb their devotion."

Beautiful weather today, though a bit muggy, I'll take it.

I do love this country, been lucky enough to visit a few others and they're nice too, but its always good to come back home.

Happy Independence Day folks

It looks like one of the American families in the village are having a party, I saw fireworks coming from the general direction of their house as I was driving home from a dry evening taking photos of a band playing at a beer festival.

But in the pub now, so raising my tankard, with a bottle of Black dog, from the fridge poured into it and happy 4th of July.

May you have many more.
