    Happy Independence Day from me too ... from a Brit in England to the good people of our old colonies!

    Be safe, whatever you are doing to celebrate.

    A great day for Americans! If it wasn't for the Revolution we might all be speaking English... wait a minute.. we do speak English. At least we learned how to spell correctly, words like tire, color and mold....

    what would fit better for a "Independence Day Smoke", than DTM's "Independence" ?
    Not my style of tobacco, but thought it was funny to mention, maybe some people have already smoked it?
    We here in Germany are still waiting for Independence !

    Have a nice day, best wishes to all you crazy folks out here!

    Regards,

    Fourth of July, like Christmas, is always a bit of a sad for me. My family is in the states, and July 4 is our annual family reunion. In the 15 years I've lived in the UK, I've only managed to make it over for one July family reunion. In that time, the majority of the older generation has passed on...I was never able to say a last goodbye in person or go to their funeral.

    On a side note, there is a saying in the UK about the UK/US language...it goes "Britain and America are two nations divided by a common language." After 15 years of marriage, my wife and I still come out with phrases that we have to ask the meaning to. She calls mine "Americanisms"!

    Paul, you need to get her the Oxford Dictionary Of American English, she might understand you better

    Yup, happy 4th July to our American cousins.

    I got up early to put the flag up on the porch and then went back and slept another hour. Happy 241st. The flag rocks a little but not much breeze. We may go to one of the fireworks shows, although it takes twice as much time to get headed home after the show than it does to get there and see the show. We shall see. At a previous house in the same city, we used to be able to hike up the hill to an adjoining small college campus and watch from the high ground the fireworks about a half mile or less away. What a luxury. Growing up, we could watch it at a downtown park from our backyard so I'm really spoiled. I like fireworks a lot. I dislike the amplified music they often play with it. To me, the percussion of the fireworks IS the music. I just love that. Recorded music is like someone talking in the theater while the play is going on.

    My wife is frying up some chicken, "Missouri style" she says, and made some slaw and potato salad. I'm not sure I'll have the gumption to go seeking a view of fireworks after this; we had hot fudge sundaes ... for lunch! The flag is still wafting in the breeze on the porch. I put up some curtains for my wife in her study that look way better than the old venetian blinds. Took me quite a while to thread the rod through those little hemmed sleeves at the top of the curtains; I like the clip-on rings, but this looks way better. Happy Fourth!

    Metal Head, my Dad taught me that a bad day at work is better than a good day in the soup line!

    I hope you're getting double time. I'm rocking some Slayer for you, Seasons In The Abyss.

    About to drop a marinated pork loin on the grill and finally switch from coffee to adult beverages.

    No fireworks for me. It's the one thing in the world that has ever caused me a PTSD like experience.

    Hanging around drunks with explosives ain't very smart, anyways...

    We decided not to go get mired in the traffic though I/we love fireworks, but we had the ambient sound from shows around town, plus some backyard fireworks, and watched the Washington D.C fireworks, and then the big NYC Macy's show on NBC, done by the eighth generation Grucci family of Long Island that does shows all over the world. We've seen the show live, and this one was vast and magnificent. The Grucci family is the primo family in fireworks. This one was about an hour and spellbinding. To top off our Americana evening, we sipped Cokes. I struck the colors (took down the flag) before dark when it started to rain.

    @jaytex - thanks! It was a pretty easy shift, and the extra pay will be nice. Heck, I even got a break to enjoy a small petite corona cigar while watching the town go boom and light up the sky.

    Today is National Bikini Day!

    If you don't have the figure for a bikini, it's also National Apple Turnover Day!

    If you don't have time for all that nonsense, it's also National Workaholics Day!

    Life's short. Fined SOMETHING to celebrate....

    Relaxing after the celebration

    ...and yes, yes I did

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes
