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!
- I hear there’s a new HGTV show. Have you watched it? Given the popularity of previous HGTV rants, I guess I’ll have to watch this new one.
- The sad story of child labor in photographs. Thank goodness we’ve come a long way in this country. Now it’s time to take on the rest of the world.
- Did you go to summer camp? I never did, so I’m not the best audience here. But I would tend to agree with the author that iphones ruined summer camps. You?
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!
