IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness...

But... having said that (and acted upon it) we still cherish, in one form or another, all that came from Mother England... (Now to attend the 1 1/2 inch rib eyes and medium baker potatoes for the grill later...)

compliments of the season, Clanad.

I hope the weather's a bit more seasonable in your part of the country than on the east coast.

Weather is horrible here in the intermountain west, jno... been 90 to 96 degrees F for about a week with high humidity and no wind. We're wondering what we did to anger the mountain gods! We could use some of the rain I see you're having. Some crops are in trouble already...

Boo... Boo... we've had our infestation of hydrophobia here recently... had a skunk come around the corner of the barn this morning... wild look in his eye, foaming at the mouth... staggering... I was really alarmed until I found that the jar of the vile semi-fluid I had cast into the river in our back yard over a year ago had suddenly returned. Inspected the interior of the barn and sure enough... there it lay. Nothing could destroy it and not fit for man nor beast. Poor skunk... terrible, lingering death by Marmite!

Here's me trying to be neighborly to our former masters from across the wide Atlantic and what do I get in return... Boo[i... a Marmite connoisseur ( from the quiet English village of Yuck, I imagine) and [i]Cognoscente] reminding me of that dark day... Oh! the pain of it... Pardon the emotion...
Blame the jet stream for the weather, Clanad. We are on the 'wrong side' of it, and getting the wettest Summer since records began, whilst large parts of the US are unusually hot and dry.

(See? I'm British and talk about the weather)

Have a great holiday!
lol Clanad, I do love you! Hope you've had a fantastic Independence Day. Incidentally, i've no idea why you celebrate it so much, it was a crap film.
