The Journey of a Thousand Miles

... begins with finding your car keys.

July 4th seems like an appropriate time to launch my own blog. A nation that continues to become more dependent on everything except self-reliance probably could use some help in the Independence department. I guess we call it Independence Day because it's a day pretty much unrelated to the actual signing of the Declaration of Independence. I'll leave it up to the brighter reader to figure out what that statement was all about.

One of my neighbors is putting on a pretty fair fireworks show in his front yard. Completely illegal, of course, but here in Rural, Vermont, we're not overly concerned with the letter of the law. After he's finished, maybe I'll pull out some of my own and fire some counter-battery. War is Hell when you're almost out of Mojito and you can't find your car keys to fetch more.

Happy 4th of July, folks...
