  1. May I be the first to wish anyone who wants one a happy 4th of July!

    1. Technically, I’m second, since Darrell had home field advantage. πŸ˜‰

  2. Happy fourth, from an American living in Canada. I miss the fourth of July. Still proud to be an American. :mrgreen:

      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:

  3. 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.

  4. This was posted on Facebook this morning

    “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

    1. Hey! One of MY friends put that on Facebook too! HOW does this stuff get around so fast?

  5. “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. “TΓ‘ sΓΊil agam go bhfuil lΓ‘ breΓ‘ agat”

      I do hope that was a good Gaelic translator lest I just pronounced a curse on your cat or something. 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…

  6. I had a lovely day, thank you! πŸ™‚

    My Dad got a little confused and posted, “May the 4th be with you” on facebook πŸ™‚

  7. Thanks, Darrell… and to everyone else, may you have a great day, wherever you are.

  8. Happy Fourth of July everyone! Keep cool, relax, and just enjoy the beautiful day!

  9. 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?!!

  10. Happy Independence Day!

    On a much less important note, Happy National Blow Stuff Up Day!

  11. 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!

  12. No, God wasn’t the first American. He was the first African. Put that in your fireworks and blow it up!

  13. God made America. Until Obama, Clinton, or Carter get in office. Then its the throneroom of the devil.
