Have a Happy 4th of July!

I want to wish you all a fun and safe 4th of July. I know, it’s in the middle of the week this year, and you’re bitter you couldn’t figure out how to get Thursday and Friday off also. The mistake was putting the specific date in the name of the holiday. That’s never a good idea; just ask any Cinco de Mayo event planner. I’ve always thought “Independence Day” would have given us a lot more flexibility in regards to scheduling. Anyway, enjoy the day off and remember; beer and firecrackers don’t mix! The beer makes them all soggy and they don’t explode. So, here’s to short pants, long fuses, and “Stars and Stripes Forever” played by four girls, in matching shirts, on the Trombone. Since there are probably only nine or ten girls in the whole country that play trombone, to see four of them together in one clip is pretty impressive. Enjoy!

Have a good fourth Chef! You deserve it. :) I thought that you were going to cook that cake. Oh well... those girls looked like adults. Maybe because of the growing rate of obesity in the USA. But boy do we love our BBQs, and McDonald's! Haha j/k j/k Have a great 4th of July everyone. :)

John,
Have an awesome day off! They can take our stoves away but they can't take our FREEDOM!

Happy 4th, Chef. I think those women are actually British, which makes the whole clip just a bit more ironic... or it would've if I had actually watched it on the 4th.

Wow, you could actually hear an emglish accent through a trombone! I'm impressed. Thanks.
