- We even took our umbrella, our new folding, camp UVa lawn chairs, and books to read and wait for about 2 hours - or so we thought. When it began to look ominous, around 8:15, they began the fireworks, which was an hour early. But it was dark and presumably they hoped to beat the storm. But it was already drippy and halfway through our beautiful display (top 5, I've read 3rd in the nation, but maybe 4th), the skies let loose.

- Our hearts still go out to the boys in Iraq - I believe 5 were killed there this week. Brave, brave men and women.

Who never to himself hath said,"This is my own, my native land!"
- Wouldn't it be nice if we all could be at peace in our own native lands? I have a dream about that!
