    CELEBRATE PATRIOT'S DAY!!!!

    Make sure everyone you know understands what and when Patriot's Day is!

    Patriot's Day, April 19th marks the 234th anniversary of the early morning ride of Paul Revere and William Dawes to Concord, Massachusetts, in order to warn John Hancock and Samuel Adams that British troops were coming to arrest them and seize their weapons.


    Remember from your history lessons (if you were even told in school, my children weren't) that this was the actual beginning of the revolution leading to the birth of the United States of America.


    So, in honor of all who gave their lives to build this great nation...CELEBRATE!
    B-B-Q! Throw a party! Learn to shoot a gun proficiently. Whatever seems an appropriate tribute!


    But KNOW why! And Make sure everyone you know understands why also.




    Oh, and if you have the stones...I suggest you read the address given by Rush Limbaugh Jr. (father of the sometimes pompous, inflammatory media personality) at the link below. It'll take five minutes and remind you where this country started.

    The Battles of Lexington and Concord were the first military engagements of the American Revolutionary War. They were fought on April 19, 1775, in Middlesex County, Province of Massachusetts Bay, within the towns of Lexington, Concord, Lincoln, Menotomy (present-day Arlington), and Cambridge, near Boston. The battles marked the outbreak of open armed conflict between the Kingdom of Great Britain and its thirteen colonies in the mainland of British North America.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson, in his Concord Hymn described the first shot fired by the Patriots at the North Bridge as the "shot heard 'round the world"
