That's how long the United States is a country, 244 years today (General Washington wanted it to be July 2nd I've heard). Independence Day and BBQ's all around. I hear fireworks already going off and the sun is still shining. What's that all about?
Today in Ocean City, Maryland, a truck carrying fireworks for their big beach show tonight somehow "caught fire" and blew up - fireworks going off prematurely and scattering throngs of people near it. Thankfully, no one was killed or seriously injured.
Enjoy this long weekend in celebrating any way you'd like.
BSoleille! The bright side of a glimpse of The Statue of Liberty on our way home from New York today.
