There's nothing like a good old Fourth of July Parade down Mainstreet! The old cars, the Boy and Girl Scouts, the HS bands, the American Veterans. the clowns, the floats, the little kids on bicycles,.... hokey, but wouldn't be a Fourth without one!!!

Happy Independance Day everyone!!

My wife and I are going to the American Embassy in Warsaw tonight for the 4th July independence celebrations, because she obtained an invite when she won a scientific scholarship to the US. The only thing that I am worried about it that the booze is free and I might be deported after I punch Roman Giertych on the nose.

Plus, being British it feels a bit strange celebrating one of our defeats.hehe
But what the hell, let bygones be bygones…. happy Independence day America :o)

I forgive you wasting all that luvverly tea. What should have happened of course is that both sides should have sat down over a cup of tea and avoided the fighting bit. We could have reached a sensible compromise and agreed to blame the French.

You are right about that. And imagine what all that caffeine did to the fish! :)

agreed to blame the French.

That's ok, they are still pissed off about the Louisana Purchase! Amercians love a bargain!

LOL. Nice to see you Americans are still awake! Or is it just the start of the July 4th 24 hour party?

Actually, I have to work in a few hours. Just having a little tug-of-war with my old friend "insomnia". :)

I opted to take Friday as the "holiday" so as to create a long weekend. And since we are so dry here in the national park, no grilling is permitted due to extreme fire danger.

:( No fireworks either. :(

Shame - but enjoy your long weekend.

Try reading any work by Salman Rushdie to beat the insomnia. Works every time for me! Being serious I know it is not nice. I went through a spell a few years back.

Did anything help?

(and this forum doesn't help me any......it's like a cyber version of crack cocaine, or something!)

Nothing specific I'm afraid. I guess in my case a lot of it was work stress related. I was in a pretty high position in a big corporation and work started to become too dominant. I opted to bow out and go back to the work that I enjoyed the most and start my own company. The hours were much the same but the enjoyment came back. There were some other factors as well but that was the main one.

I was camping in Grand Tetons and visiting Yellowstone several years ago and it was the only time in my life that I did not see fireworks on the 4th! Still had a great time though!

I'm sure I can find some fun if I try! :)
They will have fireworks down in Williams....they have a lake they can fire them over! (with the fire dept. standing by...just in case of a stray!) :)

happy 4 of July... dont forget that one day we might ask for it back... :-P

Could we make a trade of one of our "citizens" instead! ;P
