First off, happy 4th of July folks. I have seen so many I lost count and to me, it's just another day but was grand when I was young and into safe and sane fireworks (if there is such a thing anymore). I remember the 200th birthday for the USA and it was a pretty big event for this day which I don't think I will see for a long time. I remember all the special stamps and coins made for just that year. A great memory was seeing all the ships in New York harbor. Let's keep this thread non-political and just memories of this day, good, bad, or indifferent. If you want to push America or diss it, then there's the PRSI section for that.
