Happy 4th of July to all my readers, most especially the large majority who actually hail from the U.S. of A! I always make a fuss with the Flags of Many Lands when someone from another country stumbles upon my little part of the World Wide Web, but I haven't forgotten the folks from my own country.
Be safe traveling the highways and byways of this great land of ours today.
No matter what mode of transportation you decide to use.
Enjoy the food, drink and companionship of the picnics you attend, recalling that even on a holiday, it is a good idea to practice moderation.
Have a great time, and remember that it is the responsibility of all of us to make our country a better place, a place we can be proud of. This is true whether we are Republicans or Democrats or independents, liberals, moderates or conservatives, lovers of dogs (the finest creatures God ever put on this earth), lovers of the silly creatures pictured here, or even people who kind of like both of them.
