I’m sending this greeting out, because it’s July 4th once again! Have a good one!
Weather is perfect here in the West Coast, and the mood is set for our traditional festivities: a nice family-style meal this evening. We’re earnestly celebrating the 4th of July in the usual manner — a great barbecue with family and some teeny tiny (riiiiight!) fireworks in the yard. We’re first generation immigrants and naturalized citizens who feel greatly honored to live and work in this wonderful country, where we have been afforded tremendous opportunities and have built lives we enjoy. We’re living our own version of the American Dream [insert cheesy music with firework popping sounds here] and we’re proud to be Americans!
After all the stuff at home, we’ll follow up with watching some fireworks up the hill from where we live. We’ve got a good view of the Bay Area peninsula from where we live.

So what are you folks serving up today? We’re having the standard hot dogs…
and we’re going for something tropical: mango floats and mango crepes for dessert. It’s a favorite with us! 🙂

And of course, we follow this up with a lot of noise and merry-making. But while you’re having fun, do be careful out there too. Have a great celebration!
