SATURDAY, JULY 3rd, 2010welcome {4th of july} weekend.

declarationWe hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. ... And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor. Unlike the courageous men of the General Congress, we're not writing oaths of faith and independence this weekend. But we're honoring and celebrating all those who fought -- and continue to fight -- for the privilege to call America the land of the free (and our home): + Fireworks, OF COURSE. Where will you be watching these explosions of light? Proper Topper will have employee outposts in Florida, Delaware, Virginia, and various barbecues and festivities throughout our nation's capital. + Parades. Like this one. Nothing too fancy, mind you. Just invited bands, fife and drum corps, floats, military and specialty units, giant balloons, equestrian, drill teams, VIPs, national dignitaries, and celebrity participants. + A gala, to which we wish we were invited. Mr. and Mrs. Obama, please be our friends. + Festivals. Like this one. (Hurry, scurry! It ends Monday!) + Movies. An 80s classic, al fresco. Or a 90s classic, for the literal-minded celebrants among us. + Friends and family. And burgers. And Pancake Day, 4th-of-July edition. + RED. WHITE. and BLUE. Happy 4th of July! 4thpancakes
