i celebrate 4th July becsause my other half is from the states. but its no more than a "date night"

I celebrate St George's day.

Besides, American Independence Day celebrates the Americans defeating the British. Why would I celebrate that?

In historical terms it did Britain a favour actually. Losing the "first" empire allowed the British to go and build a much bigger second one.

I'll be working. Made far more pleasurable and peaceful by the fact that my US clients won't be.

And my US colleagues won't be at work either. But then neither will I - we get the US Hols off too because we work 40 hrs per week instead of the 38.5 our contract calls for. Good arrangement.

However, it isn't so good that the US Government is in such deep shit economically that each and every US civilian worker throughout the Department of Defense is being forced to take off one day unpaid every week from now until October. It's a measure called "sequestration" or alternately " furlough".

4th July in America is a great day - I was lucky to be in New York 3 years ago, and went to see a baseball game at the Yankee Stadium, and then watched the fireworks in the evening.

Was in Boston this year for Memorial Day, which was much more moving. Had the privilege to run their Run To Remember half marathon, which is to raise money for fallen police and armed forces members, which took on extra meaning after the events during and after the marathon - a truly moving event in itself.

 Hope everyone is enjoying our holiday.

The fun run was very well attended thanks. There was an ice cream van and a barbecue at the end.

Are you having a nice day Runny Egg?

Yes I am. I did a little maintenance on my car and short bike ride and the all important afternoon nap.
