Happy Birthday U.S.A.

Today is the 4th of July, and in the U.S.A. a national holiday. I’ll be taking the day off, celebrating my country’s birthday with barbeque, fireworks and special events.

Here in Alabama we have a great place called American Village ( http://americanvillage.org/index.shtml ), a place that has recreated many important buildings from colonial days such as the Philidelphia Courthouse and George Washington’s house. On the 4th they have a lot of displays, actors recreating historical moments (the Patrick Henry “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” speech is especially good), and tops the day off with music and fireworks.

Happy Birthday U.S.A.!
