    Thanks for the links, particularly liked the DUI victimless Crime one. We don’t “do” the 4th July in England so it’s interesting to see how different people celebrate it.

    In my book the fact that you would take your down time to compile a list like this, shows you are truly blessed, as you use your free time to do your job.
