With Your Coffee

Mother Nature’s version of fireworks after days without sunshine. Just in time for a beautiful weekend.

Happy 4th of July, America! Do you have a long weekend of summertime fun planned? Fireworks? Parades? Camping? Barbecues? Wearing red, white, and blue? I’ll be enjoying the beautiful weather (knock on wood) of Vermont, racing a 5K, watching a parade, and spending as much time outside as  possible. There will most definitely be lots of ice cream consumed. And you?

For the long weekend, here’s a long list with some history, pop-culture, opinions, and urban design. Have a great weekend. Be safe, and have fun!

Side note: if I were president, I’d come up with a way to give us all long summer vacations, or winter. Take your pick. Ah well, until, then at least we’re lucky to live in the United States and be Americans. Cheers!
