    Sorry about that little misunderstanding 234 year ago Mate, it was simply a slight misunderstanding between that fellow George and some of his subjects across the pond! :)

    Great day for beer, brats, broads, and booms. Just live for the public display of summer attire and beach wear exhibited by the "finer" specimens of the female gender.

    Bill, for what it's worth, I know a fine Southern US lady who still refers to our Civil War as "those recent unpleasantries" :), says that everytime I remind her that the South didn't win. ;)

    Out of interest, what state did they fight for ?? I used to be a member of a re-enactment group here in the U.K.
    I was a member of the "Iron Brigade"

    Actually, I can't find any direct ancestors who fought for the South. I was pulling Weeds leg. I live in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and people in this area mostly fought southern though this area was split in their loyalties.

    Now my great-great-great-great Grandfather did fight against the British in the Revolutionary War. He was in the 8th Virginia Militia. I saw first hand the original flag he marched under and of course have pictures. It gave me goose bumps and made me teary eyed to stand in front of that flag. He was involved in the battles of Monmouth, Brandywine and Trenton. He also spent the winter at Valley Forge. I'm very proud of him and to be a direct ancestor. :tup:

    Went to the Green Bay Fire over the Fox fireworks last night. Great weather, sat in a park on the west side of the river near the Donald Driver statue. Showed it to the yung'uns on the way to our spot. Tried something different this year. I am very near sighted. At normal distance, I cannot see the words on my screen. This year I took off my glasses for the show. Instead of seeing the normal points of light like most people, each point was like 20-point snowflakes that almost created a solid globe. The ground fountains looked like walls of light instead of streamers.Really was an interesting experience. Really not happy though with the "security" measures that banned all coolers, bags, and other carry-ins except blankets and chairs. Really telling when city official went on the news and said part of it was to force people to buy from the on site vendors. The new American way I suspect.
