Happy July 4, Americans.

Good day all round, as it changed things for the better over here too. Although we're a bit out of money, so if you do want to pay any back taxes, don't let us stop you! ;D

Today is also the 15th anniversary of Mars Pathfinder landing, 7th of Deep Impact's smashing encounter with Comet Temple 1, and the largest 4th of July rocket ever lit Discovery on mission STS-121.

Woohoo, four day weekend!

When someone is wishing for a pony, there's little to be gained by suggesting a unicorn would be ever better.. ya know, unless it's sarcasm.

Independence Day is not just a U.S. holiday. For us here in the United States, and for many others, it symbolizes the day when we decided to change our form of government to something that the majority wanted. As we here in the U.S. remember that anniversary today, it is very important that everyone remember those around the world who still fight for the same right to do so.

From across the Atlantic I wish you all a happy Independence Day.

You can tell the iPad is an American gadget as it automatically capitalised Independence Day for me. :)

From my family to yours, Happy 4th to all the troops around the world who make this day continually possible.

And thanks to all those brilliant engineers who design and build the equipment they use. There is no substitute.

And as I gaze up towards the sky tonight as the colors burst, I'll think of our flag on that far away moon. May we raise another flag on another moon some day soon!
