Today is the Independence Day here in the U.S. The occasion is often simply
called the Fourth of July, but of course every country has one of those. The
occasion can be loud, but our plans are quiet, as we'll be staying home. But the
neat thing we've learned since moving a few years ago, is most of the local
fireworks celebration are easily viewed from our living room. This is
serendipitous, as we had no idea this was the case when we moved it, but it's a
pretty cool setup.
