Happy Birthday Dad!  Happy 4th of July Family and Friends in America!  You’ve always claimed that fireworks exist to celebrate you…so from the bottom of the world, we say: We love you!

There will be a massive ‘American’ 4th of July BBQ (Not a Braai) today at Pangani as a way for us to invite our wider community to come celebrate with us…ping pong, darts, water balloon throwing contests, paper airplane and balloon animal making (Thanks Mom!), hamburgers from the grill and obscene amounts of potato salad.  We’ll throw on The Sandlot and Independence Day (What celebrates America more than these classics!), and even watch a Youtube fireworks display in honor this evening…

Here’s the best I’ve found so far:

Happy Fourth of July (and Happy Birthday Dad) everyone!
