Missing the annual Freedom Fourth celebration in Albuquerque. Lots of fun for everyone, live music, food and amazing fireworks!

Beautiful day 28C Sunny, slight breeze - off for a bike ride soon, making Iranian ice cream and watching the Casey Anthony trial.

Feliz Día de la Independencia.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,
that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.


“Liberty is the possibility of doubting, the possibility of making a mistake, the possibility of searching and experimenting, the possibility of saying No to any authority--literary, artistic, philosophic, religious, social and even political”-Ignazio Silone

Happy 4th y'all!

A song or two that never fail to get me in patriotic / summer party mood. (They also happen to show my age just a bit )







Edit: Ooooh no! It looks like my twangy country music killed the thread!

Re: Happy 4th of July to all those that celebrate it !

Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free...

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties,
Above the fruited plain,
America.. America..

Re: Happy 4th of July to all those that celebrate it !

It is the 4th of July, and that is for sure... But the "Happy" part just didn`t seem to fit today. Honestly, I forgot about it really. With the untimely passing of our beloved Begga, it was hard to celebrate.

So after the last 3 days, I stayed home today and just reflected on those things that were important to me... and then it came to me...

I could sit here and feel sorry for myself, and just say to heck with it... But I know that Begga would kick my butt. She would not want me to do that... So here it is... HAPPY INDEPENDANCE DAY !!!!!

BTW, this is one of my favorite patriotic songs... and I think it is fitting for today.... We must never forget!!!
