I'm pretty big on celebrating silly military anniversaries, yesterday I celebrated the 145 anniversary of the battle of Koniggratz by unsuccessfully trying to convince Mrs. Redwineandblackpowder to go out for German food. "In this heat?" she questioned. Well. thats what happens when a Prussian boy marries an Austrian girl I suppose.
But, as usual, I wander off. What I simply want to do is to wish any stumbling across this blog a happy 4th of July. And happy birthday to the best country on earth.
