Happy Fourth of July!

Read a transcript of the Declaration of Indepedence at The National Archives.  And while you're there, spend a little time exploring the site...there's a ton of cool stuff there if you're at all interested in American history.

I'm off to a cookout!  I'm trying my best to look forward to it, but I'm not fond of the idea of spending an entire afternoon in someone's backyard in 100+ degree temperatures.  That's hot, folks.  Maybe I'll offer to help out in the kitchen so I can take advantage of the air conditioner.

Have a safe and happy Fourth!

I was actually at the National Archives last summer, reading the constitution when another LJ friend came up behind me and said "[realname] there's a typo in the constitution". My head nearly exploded.

True story!
