Happy Fourth of July!

Also known as "American Independence Day" for any non-US reader. In Great Britain, it's known as the American Rebellion.

I once worked on an international project and our team was made up of people from six different countries. At the end of a conference call one American woman said, "Have a happy 4th of July everyone." Of course, most people on the conference call were puzzled. I had to point out that this is an American holiday.

Having said that, I wish to send belated Happy Canada Day wishes to my northern friends.

To the rest of you Yanks, be safe and well.
