HAPPY JULY 4, 2013

Today is July 4, 2013; a major historic day in American history.
I won't bore our International readers with a lot of local patriotism, although I cannot help wondering why so many retail businesses are actually open today.
I can understand the emergency services (police, fire fighters, and medical) operating today, but grocery and department stores? It just doesn't seem right somehow.
In any event, let's celebrate with some safe Fireworks as I hope everyone has a good day, regardless of whether they had to work or not.
