Happy 4th of July!


Well today is the day when the Rebel scum in the Americas declared independence from the wonderful British Empire.


Good for them, too!


The Empire did very little that was good for the world! All it has done for us in the long term is make us think we are more important than we really are, so while the country is sliding down a very slippery slope we are spending millions on new aircraft carriers that will have very little use when they are done. But they will look good and people can carry on deluding themselves that Britannia still rules the waves!


I will be celebrating along with you all, as we are all going to a big barbeque tonight. The weather is perfect and the host is one of the best I know, so we are in for a great evening.


Have a great weekend, everyone!

'Bout time you got your post up for the day! I was wondering if you were taking an extended weekend again! ;)

I'll forgive you for the Rebel Scum remark since you so kindly posted a picture of Mel Gibson. Besides, we are all friends again and that's what we should really be celebrating today.

Have a great time tonight!

Aw, you were waiting for me!

I almost did a different post but things just got in the way and I ran out of time - I was going to film myself playing God Bless America on my guitar...

Thanks for forgiving me.
