The Day a Star Danced

Happy 4th of July!



If you work on an oil rig, or any night job, or just don’t like loud noises, you likely won’t be seeing fireworks tonight so I’m including some. This is a lovely version of The Star Spangled Banner performed by Sandi Patti and The Boston Pops (click on bottom right corner after starting for full screen).



Today there are celebrations going on all over the country and for a very, very  l o n g  time, Heidi thought they were all celebrating her! Talk about a kid with great self-esteem! If you know Heidi at all, you know how appropriate it is that she was born on the 4th of July!

There was a star danced, and under that was I born.                  ~ William Shakespeare



Happy Birthday, Heidi!



It takes a long time to grow young. ~ Pablo Picasso



You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. ~ C S Lewis



God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well. ~ Voltaire
