In the Summertime

Happy July 4th. May you be celebrating with a bit of history, reasonable political discourse and a burger or two. Check out the reading of the Declaration of Independence to keep the historical perspective. (youtube.com - The Declaration of Independence (as read by Max McLean)

And then discuss the all important question-is July 4th the beginning of summer or does it mean summer is all over?

Sheila: I am just settling my toes into the sand and ready for all that summer has to offer. And of course my birthday is tomorrow so the celebrations are a month long.

Lisa: As a native New Yorker, I am genetically programmed to see the glass half empty...therefore July 4th means summer is over

Whichever your perspective, enjoy these precious days and get your Summer on, and maybe an apron too...
