An Intermission

Please excuse this intermission of "Today's Music" for a History Lesson.

Riz calls me "Philadelphia Girl" because I love American History. I love to read all those historical plaques that are on monuments when we travel. I grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia and still have family there. When I was a kid my parents and the school system of West Chester PA. would take me to Philadelphia on field trips. There in started my interest in American History. The following post is an article I found on the history of the Forth of July. I love the picnics and Fire Works as much as the next person but, I also like to reflect what the holiday is all about and on how we got here....
