Calling all patriotic Americans

It's that time of year again here in America and people are celebrating the nation's glorious years starting from its humble beginnings as a newly born country in July 4, 1776 and now 235 years later in July 4, 2011. What changes we've experienced, what happiness, sorrow and everything in between! 

So, just wanted to say, "Happy Independence Day, USA!" Hmm, I wonder if the British celebrate this as a day of sorrow or something for them since they lost the loyalty of a valuable colony on this day. Any British people out there in blogland who could answer this question? What exactly do you guys do (if anything) on this day?   

Aside from that, here's a quote by Erma Bombeck about today: 
You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.  You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.  



  1. Hi,thanks for writing sweet comment on my blog,well i like your patriotic writing style,i didnt notice this colorful writing at any other blog post :)

  2. That Blond Guy,

    Are you British?

  3. What's up with the patriotism? Didn't know you were a fan, "misticalnia". Nice name, by the way. Ha. Not.

  4. ^ Oh my God. I love him. He hates your name as much as I do.


Did you hear that? It's the sound of the keyboard being abused. It's a skill every writer/blogger needs to know. If you don't know it, go back to high school. Ohhh....wait. They don't teach you that in high school. Darn it. What ARE they teaching kids these days? Anyway, just leave a comment, and remember next to abuse your keyboard, because it's there to feel your rambling fingers.
