      1. Oh we still have a fourth of July, but it’s not a holiday. Here we celebrate Canada day on the first, and if it happens to fall on a Sunday, in order that the public “servants” get their extra day, it’s also celebrated on Monday. :mrgreen:

  1. Happy Independence Day to all.
    I’m headed to Alabama to my still Fundy brothers home for a family grill out. Should be fun. There is hope for him–he doesn’t look down on those of us who have left the narrow-minded way.

    “The real reason we can’t have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse: You cannot post ‘Thou shalt not steal’, ‘Thou shalt not commit adultery’ and ‘Thou shalt not lie’ in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians. It creates a hostile work environment.” – George Carlin

  3. “If defeated everywhere else, I will make my stand for liberty among the Scots-Irish of my native Virginia”. General George Washington

    Happy Independence Day from your Calvinist cousins in the Old Country {Oops! Just spoiled someone’s day…) πŸ™„

      1. I am more from the Scots end of the Scots-Irish. The Scottish gaelic is spoken mainly in the Scottish highlands. The Presbyterians up there sing the Psalms and preach in the in the Gaelic. My lot are the lowlanders – Scottish Covenantors and all that. Sorry I can’t translate. I have no dog or cat to try it out on…

  4. Americans should be proud of the tolerant, civil and prosperous society that they have created (not perfect but better than 75% of the world). Personally, I think that the founding fathers (mostly deists) marked the high point of the enlightenment era. America was blessed by distance from enemies, an abundance of natural resources and good government. One wonders what would have transpired if the founding fathers were IFB morons?!!

  5. Yay! Fireworks! We have a new-to-us dog, though, so I’ll be staying home with him to make sure he doesn’t freak out at the noise. Well, that, and it’s hotter than the hinges of Hell out there, and there’s a thunderstorm in the forecast. Happy 4th, everybody!
