Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver, the other is gold.

A fire burns bright, it warms the heart. We've been friends, from the very start.

You have one hand, I have the other. Put them together, we have each other.

Silver is precious, Gold is too, I am precious and so are you.

You help me, and I'll help you. And together, we will see it through.

The sky is blue, The Earth is green. I can help, to keep it clean.

Across the land, across the sea. Friends forever, We will always be.

Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States.
It commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776,
declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.
Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs,
picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies.
In addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions
of the United States. Independence Day is the National Day of the United States.

Held since 1785, the Bristol Fourth of July Parade in Bristol, Rhode Island is the oldest continuous Independence Day celebration in the United States.

Since 1868, Seward, Nebraska has held a celebration on the same town square. In 1979 Seward was designated "America's Official Fourth of July City-Small Town USA" by resolution of Congress.
Seward has also been proclaimed Nebraska's Official Fourth of July City" by Governor James Exon in proclamation. Seward is a town of 6,000 but swells to 40,000+ during the July 4 celebrations.

Since 1912, the Rebild Society, a Danish-American friendship organization, has held a July 4 weekend festival that serves as a homecoming for Danish-Americans in the Rebild section of Denmark.

Since 1916, Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York City supposedly started as a way to settle a dispute among four immigrants as to who was the most patriotic.

Since 1959, the International Freedom Festival is jointly held in Detroit, Michigan and Windsor, Ontario during the last week of June each year as a mutual celebration of Independence Day and Canada Day
(July 1). It culminates in a large fireworks display over the Detroit River.

Numerous major and minor league baseball games are played on Independence Day.

The famous Macy's fireworks display usually held over the East River in New York City has been televised nationwide on NBC since 1976. In 2009, the fireworks display was returned to the Hudson River for
the first time since 2000 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson's exploration of that river.

Since 1970, the annual 10 kilometer Peachtree Road Race is held in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Boston Pops Orchestra has hosted a music and fireworks show over the Charles River Esplanade called the "Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular" annually since 1973.
The event was broadcast nationally from 1987 until 2002 on the A&E Network, and from 2003 until 2012 on CBS (the concert is still carried locally in full by Boston's CBS affiliate WBZ-TV).

On the Capitol lawn in Washington, D.C., "A Capitol Fourth", a free concert, precedes the fireworks and attracts over half a million people annually.

So, just what are your plans for the 4th of July? As for me, it looks like serious rain is in the forecast. But, no fear, I have a few good books to curl up with and just catch the fireworks on TV.

Catch the ferry over to Bremerton. Turn around and ride it back but this time with Nick and Ashley. Irish Pub for lunch. Walk home. Visit the inlaws. Home. Either walk down and watch the fireworks or watch them on tv.

Thank you for the start, Kay Kay.
Sounds like a great day, Sandy. I will be at work, but only 3 shifts left before I get to go visit my sister.
Just finished NOT FREE NOW Out Of Step by Bethany Askew, contemporary fiction, well written, and a real life plot, meaning not necessarily happy endings all tied up with a bow. I would give it 4 stars.

@ KayKay
Yes I noticed, but I am not "allowed" to buy from the UK site, so I stick to the US sites in general - thanks for thinking of me.
Sleep well - catch you later

For those living in UK and those using the UK Amazon site the 4th of July has already started :-)

Taking the bus to the ferry. Letting Nick drive to the pub. So all I have to do is about 45 miles total. Not bad.

Do like Calvin and Hobbes :)

The 4th of July Spies (Traveling Through Time to the American Revolution) by Stanley Harris
Publication Date: June 24, 2010
It is June of 1776, the second year of the American Revolution. The Continental Congress, meeting in Philadelphia, appoints five men to prepare a draft of a document that proclaims America's independence from Britain. Three of the men are Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin.

Captain Benjamin Tallmadge, George Washington's spy chief believes that the British plan to prevent this declaration of American liberty, but he doesn't know how or when.

Tallmadge enlists four young Americans as spies to help uncover the plot. Three of the young people live in 1776. The fourth lives in the present day.

Charles Miller travels back in time to join his 18th century friends Ben Sampson, Emmy Sampson and Aaron Attucks. Each is given an assignment to stop the British from succeeding - Charles as the manservant to Thomas Jefferson, Emmy as a maid for John Adams, and Ben and Aaron working in the homes of two of the suspected plotters.

The four young people, following every lead, discover and decode a British message that exposes the conspiracy. With the help of Jacob Garter, a tailor and secret agent, and Lester Miles, a time-traveler who is more than he seems to be, they defy the British spies in a tense confrontation and prevent them from kidnapping the three American patriots. On July 4th, the Declaration Of Independence is approved by the Congress.

As he begins his journey back to the present, Charles learns that history is not always what it seems to be - that what is recorded as occurring in the past may not have been what actually happened.

Good morning ★ afternoon ★ evening everyone! A Freebie to begin this 4th of July...

Everflame - Fantasy

Long ago, when the earth was young... Four ancient beings created man to be the bastion of the earth and its creatures. But when The Great Tyrant came and chased The Ancients away, the world was transformed into a place of fear and isolation. Over time humans lost the connection they had with a world they had been created to protect. Now, deep in the forests that surround Gray Mountain, two bears find a small child that is abandoned and left for dead. They name him Evercloud, and raise him as a member of their kingdom. Teaching him the secrets of the elders, they tell him of the ancient beings that created man and the rumors of their return. Evercloud must now go on a quest to return The Ancients to power. However, in another corner of the land, a man known only as The Messenger travels the land under a white hood, on a mission to prevent the return of The Ancients. We follow the paths each of these men take until their stories collide in an epic battle of good versus evil.

Murder At Wrightsville Beach (Magnolia Mystery Series)

Book 4 in the series, With temperatures in the nineties, Ashley Wilkes, historic preservationist, heads for Wrightsville Beach where sister Melanie has rented an oceanfront sleeps-14 "cottage." But murder never takes a vacation and as the body count escalates, Ashley realizes there is more to beach life than sunblock and fried fish platters. With houseguests and neighbors all behaving suspiciously, Ashley's tempted to retreat back to town where she's restoring a 1920s Georgian Revival house, yet even the restoration site is fraught with danger. And nothing prepares Ashley for a moonlight stroll out on the pier with a crazed killer.
