HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY EVERYONE!
I have been asked many times by Americans what the British do on July 4th. I have not been able to come up with a good reply to that one. However, perhaps the Brits could celebrate some independence days. After all there was independence from the Romans; the marauding hoards of various Goths who chanced upon the shores during the next few hundred years; the Vikings (Danes); Saxons, and then unfortunately we gave up the fight when the Normans took over in 1066. That was the last time. But we could have a celebration every quarter at least. I wonder how that would play!
