Happy Fourth!


Irwin Weiner ASID - This is the year (hopefully) that I make the transition from legal alien status as a South African citizen living and working in the United States to full-fledged United States citizen (actually duel citizenship, but that's a fine point). What a wonderful country this is! I came here 26 years ago to study, and have stayed ever since. No regrets, only praises to sing. So the July Fourth holiday celebrations, picnics and BBQs and fireworks, stir my soul and make me glad for my great, good fortune. Happy fourth to you all - and enjoy this video of fireworks from NYC's incredible Macy's display on the Hudson River from 2009.
