Independence Day - 4th July 1776

July 4, 2017

Celebrating the 4th of July and Independence from the British Crown is the national day in the United States.  Having lived there for over twenty years and raised my family as US citizens  - today's blog can't go without coverage from some trolley scenes  I enjoyed 'over the pond'....
