Happy Independence Day, American readers! And a pleasant Thursday to the rest of you. We here at the Blog Ride are taking the day off to celebrate our most national of National Holidays by sitting in a kiddie pool in the back yard, eating whatever we burn on the grill and setting off all the fireworks we can lay our hands on. Come on over! It’ll be a hoot.
We’ll be back tomorrow, slightly sunburned and a little worse for wear. And if you’re my neighbor who lights one firecracker every 30 seconds for 5 hours in the middle of the night, maybe this year you can just fire them up all at once. It’s way more exciting and we can all get some sleep.
