Thank you Fredo, and to all a safe and enjoyable 4th. We'll be doing hot dogs, we peons at the university don't make very good salaries. Stay safe all!

Hot dogs are great, Penny! No shame in enjoying those. In fact I would suggest you enjoy them with one of my new-found friends. A little beer brewed in Texas:

Deep, nutty flavors with an almost chocolate finish. Not overly bitter, with just a hint of sweetness.

I'll grill some dogs too. I have some very nice all-beef hot dogs made for Allen Brothers in Chicago, which is where I buy my steaks. I like the snap of a natural skin hot dog as you bite into it.

Dang Ken, are you just now finding out about Shiner? I have to agree though, that dark beers seem to work better with hot dogs and other sausages than do lighter beers.

Dave, I am in Texas, do you guys in Alabama want our rain, or our wet fireworks? You can have either.

And I also second that suggestion by Chef Ken about reading the Declaration...

I have a framed copy on my wall that we read every 4th....

Even with all it's problems (and you just think you know the problems till you go to the passport office !) this is still the very very best country in the world ! ! ! ! ! !

Yea, I don't get around enough and we have an abundance of micro-breweries around here. One of my favorites is James Page Burly Brown Ale. I used to be a community owner until they went belly-up. They were scooped up by a brewer in Steven's Point Wisconsin and still brew excellent beer.

I agree with the bite of natural casing hot dogs, have burned my tongue a few times on exploding juices but what the heck, part of the experience.

drlivingston, I'll send you our rain FREE. We're pretty soggy here in the San Antonio area. Fireworks will likely be be cancelled this year from the rain. Last year we were in a drought so we aren't complaining too much. It's nice to see green at this time of year. To have green lawns on the 4th of July is nice.

Happy 4th everyone! Many from our family will be here. We were going to grill burgers, but the forecast looks nasty, so we are having sandwiches; broccoli salad; potato salad; fruit salad; baked beans; deviled eggs, etc. Then IF it doesn't rain, we will make homemade ice cream to go with the Tollhouse squares and other desserts. Later we will watch fireworks, unless they get rained out! We have had beautiful weather for a week and now it looks like rain is on the way.

A local station has played patriotic music since Sunday. I love it! We have so many blessings.

I don't know how everyone got the Declaration signed. They were so far apart in distance. Both mine and Cruise Specialist (Carol)'s counties are named for revolutionary war heroes here in S.C.

Mine for Peter Horry, and Carol's for Francis Marion. One of our four signatories, Thomas Lynch Jr. I have heard he left part of his signature blank to honor his father.

From growing up in VA and then living in SC it has always been interesting to me. I hope as well that everyone takes the time to read the Declaration. The sacrifices these Men made to sign it goes without saying for us to be free.

So along with our celebratory food and pretty explosions, I would encourage us all to remember what we are celebrating. I just did
