Freedom, Burgers & Beer!

Happy July 4th to all my friends and those who follow, read, or just happen to stumble upon this blog.

Today, I’m in Evanston, Illinois getting ready to spend a wonderful day with family and great friends. We’ll watch the Central Street Parade, cool ourselves with Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy, and then enjoy a backyard barbecue.

Aside from the 100-degree heat, it couldn’t be more perfect.

I’m sure it was just this kind of day that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and all our founding fathers had in mind when they decided to throw off the shackles of British rule and risk their lives in a revolution.

Seriously, those brave patriots clearly had weightier matters in mind – but if they could join us as we sip from a bottle of Summer Shandy between bites of a burger hot off the grill, it might have been reason enough for their epochal Declaration of Independence.

    I like the fact that this gets filed under “History” and “Truth” in the interconnectedness of it all.
