Yeah, it's Patriots Day in Boston. It's a city holiday. Schools shut down, business shuts down, they celebrate the Revolutionary War where we won our Independence from England. They run the Boston Marathon on Patriots Day as well.

The Red Sox play early in the morning every year (11 AM) so the fans can leave Fenway and walk over to the finish line for the Boston Marathon.

Reminds of the classic beer joke......

There was a big conference of all the beer producers in the world.
After a hard day's work they decided to go out and have a beer together.
The president of budweiser got a bud, the president of heineken gets a heineken, the president of miller gets a miller lite, the president of coors gets a coors, etc.
The waitress asks the president of guiness what he wants and to everyone's surprise he orders a coke.
"Why don't you have a guiness?", his colleagues asked.
"Well, I figured if you guys are all having soft drinks so will I."

Yes sir! We appreciate North and South Carolina stepping up to meet the challenge. Boston was the leader! It started with the Boston Tea Party. It took everyone else coming together to meet the challenge.

George Washington named Britain's greatest ever foe George Washington has been named as the greatest foe ever faced by the British.

The American was voted the winner in a contest run by the National Army Museum to identify the country's most outstanding military opponent.


He was one of a shortlist of five leaders who topped a public poll and on Saturday was selected as the ultimate winner by an audience of around 70 guests at a special event at the museum, in Chelsea, west London.


In second place was Michael Collins, the Irish leader, ahead of Napoleon Bonaparte, Erwin Rommel andMustafa Kemal Atatürk.


At the event, each contender had their case made by a historian giving a 40 minute presentation. The audience, who had paid to attend the day, then voted in a secret ballot after all five presentations had been made.


Dr Stephen Brumwell, who had championed Washington, said: "As British officers conceded, he was a worthy opponent."

As a kid growing up outside of Boston I used to march in from the surrounding area to Concord, as part of the companies of Minute and Militia, dressed (and armed) in period costume to re-enact the battle at the Old North Bridge, the "Shot heard 'round the world". It was quite a long hike - typically we started at a local school from breakfast at around 2:00 am and start marching by around 03:30. The good old days.....
