Default Todays question Friday 7-04-08

Good morning everyone
Happy 4th of July !!!!!

Safe travels for those loyal posters who will be traveling today

I had to chuckle when I saw it was "Barbecued Spareribs Day" because when I got up this morning I asked Mr Karla if he wanted to pick up some baby back ribs to put on the grill because you sorta have to grill on the 4th so see now we have to (I will make myself a steak not a ribs fan)

So of course you know that got me thinking and it ended up as

Todays Question:

Will you be "firing up the grill" today ?

if so

What will you be grilling ?


Today in Patriotic history:
July 4, 1776 Declaration of Independence - U.S. gains independence from Britain
July 4, 1796 1st Independence Day celebration is held
July 4, 1802 U.S. Military Academy officially opens at West Point, New York
July 4, 1832 "America" 1st sung publicly in Boston
July 4, 1956 Independence National Historical Park forms in Philadelphia
July 4, 1959 America's new 49-star flag honoring Alaska statehood unfurled
July 4, 1960 America's new 50-star flag honoring Hawaiian statehood unfurled

Word of the day:
Fireworks- [fahyuhr-wurk] n
1.a combustible or explosive device for producing a striking display of light or a loud noise, used for signaling or as part of a celebration.
2.a pyrotechnic display.

Today is:
National Barbecued Spareribs Day
and
Sidewalk Egg Frying Day ( I have always wanted to try this)
it is also
Yankee Doodle Dandy Day

Charley's Chocolate Chiplote Chucksteaks are marinating in the fridge as we speak. Unfortunately, it looks like rain and thundershowers for most of the day, so we might be cooking indoors today.

I hope that everyone has as festive a "Fourth" as possible.

P.S. Sidewalk Egg Frying Day (I have always wanted to try this) ... it works, but the bacon doesn't get crisp enough!
