As we quickly approach what is probably my second favorite holiday (after Christmas) I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy 4th of July. To me Independence Day means spending time with family and friends, eating too much BBQ and pie, knowledge that once the 5th rolls around it will stop raining and warm up, and of course - to quote the Simpsons - celebrating my nations independence by blowing a small part of it up. It's just a good time. Hell, we even had a pizza party at work today and I found myself smiling in the office for the first time since ... maybe ever.
Anyway, a quick reminder on safety though, take a hint from this guy and don't make your own fireworks. I would really like everyone I know to still have their eyebrows come Monday.
