    May the celebration of your notional independence make you feel all warm and fuzzy. :)

    Ah... the anniversary of the day Americans turned their collective back on us and therefore foolishly gave up jaffa cakes in favour of cheese in a can. ;)

    Have a splendid day over there, even those like 'Dawg who are otherwise engaged.

    Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in this history of mankind.

    Mankind -- that word should have new meaning for all of us today.

    We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore.

    We will be united in our common interests.



    Perhaps its fate that today is the 4th of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom, not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution -- but from annihilation.

    We're fighting for our right to live, to exist.

    And should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice:

    "We will not go quietly into the night!

    We will not vanish without a fight!

    We're going to live on!

    We're going to survive!"

    Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!

    That's what we're talking about isn't it? When Bill Pullman killed the aliens?

    We're staying home in the A/C today (crispy critters we are), but will head out to our small town celebration this evening. One thing about a small town, we will see at least 20 people that we know, all from church, and will therefore, be hiding the alcohol.:eek::D

    Happy Independence Day everyone!

    I am celebrating our independence from you lot by drinking copious shots of Poire William eau de vie, a 40%/vol taste of pear-fuelled heaven which a grateful client just brought back from Burgundy for me, while listening to Howlin' Wolf singing Evil Is Goin' On. Life is beautiful. Cheers!

    Pics from my friends' penthouse from last night's festivities. I also made some fireworks of my own later with a very nice young man. :)

    Stop it you! :D We will be grilling sirloins steaks from cows, not boys. :) Although I don't know who all is going to be at this barbeque- never know. ;)

    And yes- "F" stands for fun, amongst other things. ;)

    It *is* quite funny how one vowel can completely change the intended meaning of the sentence. :D
