Hope everyone has a great one and enjoys their time off from the usual.  :)

My town's little role in history was providing iron to the Continentals from local mines and forges.  Not much has happened here since.   Even so, I'm keeping an eye out for Redcoats.

The Redcoats burned my hometown of Danbury, CT.

Worked today, but am now swilling an adult beverage on my front porch watching the local gene pool degenerate. Beer and explosives....what could go wrong?

As the sorta executive officer for the week, it is my pleasure to remind all my friends as to the meaning and significance of the Forth of July. Here is a short video which explains why we declared our independence from Great Briton.
