The fourth of July is one of my all time favorite holidays . . . it's all about good times, with good friends spending time hanging out in the sun, having a barbecue, and watching some awesome fireworks. It's of course also about the independence of our nation . . . blah, blah, blah. Really I do love American history and all that the fourth of July really means and the sacrifices that were made to make this country what it is. But I have to admit that I also like what it has become . . . a day off to enjoy the heat of the summer with good friends and family. So folks . . . enjoy your day!
