Happy 4th of July!

What's everyone up to today Bloggerville?  

We are tentatively planning to head over to Busch Gardens later on and enjoy their awesome fireworks display tonight.  

For now, it is a wonderful lazy day that has me thinking about what the 4th of July holiday means to me.  Ronald Reagan said it best . . . 

"Let the Fourth of July always be a reminder that here in this land, for the first time, it was decided that man is born with certain God-given rights; that government is only a convenience created and managed by the people, with no powers of its own except those voluntarily granted to it by the people. 
We sometimes forget that great truth, and we never should."

Although I believe the present presidential campaign is one of the most important we Americans have faced, I have become totally bored with politics in general.  The frustration lies in the same ole partisan politics that has the politicians blaming someone else for everything that is wrong.  I'm disappointed in all of them!

Back to thoughts of smoked ribs, cole slaw and fireworks . . . hope everyone has a fabulous day!

The jabbing thing doesn't sound too fun, but I guess I shouldn't remind you. Hugs from California.
