I just wanted to take a moment to say happy day to everyone. I'm posting it here since this is usually where I hang out on the forums. We were planning a BBQ, but with this heat wave, we decided to have salads, cold cuts, fruit and an assortment of beverages.
Enjoy Independence Day!
And a happy 4th to you too! The day here is cool (high of 80) and the barbecue will begin in a few hours (drooling already).
Would love to see 80! The last time we saw 80 was on June 13 (well, 81 actually). It is 99 degrees at 2:00 pm and climbing.
236 years ago The Declaration of Independence was a statement adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, which announced that the thirteen American colonies, then at war with Great Britain, regarded themselves as independent states, and no longer a part of the British Empire. From this document comes one of the most important statements ever.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
We always remember our founding fathers when we talk freedom, but let’s not forget the tens of thousands that stood with them and fought for our independence giving us our freedoms.
Everyone Enjoy this July 4th, be with your family and BBQ some good food. May you all safe today. Happy Birthday America!!!
Happy 4th to everyone! From the submerged asp in the cool pool.
Have a happy and safe 4th.

What are we celebrating? A freedom that we are losing? What was relevant in 1776 is obsolete in 2012!
Have a happy 4th of July all my American friends and followers
Happy Fourth of July to all. I am staying home out of this heatwave, listening and dancing to Candi Staton and Parliament Funkadelic!
Happy 4th to all.
Thanks to all who work for the betterment of our country, especially those serving in our services.
To non-Americans reading this, peace and blessings to you as well.
So what movie is AMC showing today?
Independence Day, of course.
Yours truly stayed home all day. An unexciting, but peaceful 4th.
