Fourth of July Celebration

Happy Independence Day, everyone. It is amazing where we have come in the 200-plus years of our independence from England, both good and bad. One thing is for sure, people, despite the constant reminders, do not always learn from history. Sad, but true.

So, Happy Fourth Of July, everyone.

And to my big brother, Dave, Happy Birthday. I am so proud of the man you have become - you're the best!
