Happy Fourth of July to all our American Friends on here. Enjoy the day. Have a hot dog, some apple pie, some lipitor and a pepcid. If you have no guests, go whoop it up!

Forgot to thank you for the Happy Fourth wishes. They read our Declaration of Independence this morning on the radio, reminding me that George III was once our king too.

Really amazing text in that document. They've been reporting lately how language is becoming "dumbed down," that 30 years ago the average speech in congress scored out to a 13th grade level (first year of college) and that now the average speech is on a 9th grade level.

In comparison, Thomas Jefferson's Declaration of Independence is on a PhD dissertation level, using words like "consanguinity", and they read the thing to the people on the streets all over the new country, and people then understood it all. I doubt many of today's high school graduates would understand half of it, or would bother to try.

I am doing laundry. My "mission of mercy" left today so I have 2 rooms to clean in case I get "from the road" tonight. The welder lady left to visit her son at his job site for the weekend (she does not go back to work until Monday) and left her stuff in her room so I have 2 PRIVATE BATH guest rooms until Saturday when my horse lady comes through on her way to Canada for a month. Another concert tomorrow night.

Honestly, I just heard on national public radio that there's a lobster glut and soft-shell lobster is currently as cheap as hot dogs! Is this a great continent or what?!
