Happy 4th of July

I would like to wish everyone in the United States of America a Happy Fourth of July!!   Here is a video clip of the American Anthem.

Like many across the USA, we will be traveling to meet up with my family. (Hopefully the roads won’t be too congested….Riiight).  Some of them I haven’t seen for a few years.  We stay in touch by e-mail, phone, and Facebook.  All in all it should be a fun vacation with plenty to do.  I’ve never been to the Jersey Shore, I know the children will like it.  I might have to pick-up a box or two of Salt water taffy.  That way I have something to offer my co-workers who are dealing with server room maintenance over the following weekend.

Some of the places I’ve been to for the Forth of July include; Disney World, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh (city near my old hometown), Myrtle Beach, and Washington D.C. The fireworks usually were spectacular.  My favorite fireworks display was in Washington D.C. in 1998.   With D.C. being so crowded and our hotel faced the National Mall, we had a nice dinner and enjoyed the fireworks display from the room.  The closest I’ve been to a fireworks display was in Pittsburgh, PA.  I was on the Monongahela River bank near the Fort Pitt Tunnel.  I think they were launching the fireworks from he North Shore or from Point State Park.

Have a safe and happy holiday!!
