I’ve been hearing on the television news that Barack Obama visited the Wailing Wall and left a written prayer in between the cracks only to have the paper removed and sold to a tabloid paper, who ran the prayer. This is just such a very sad commentary on the lack of morals of so many people in today’s world. I can only shake my head in disgust at the situation.
Well, we are going to have to flip a coin. My wife and I want to see both the Mama Mia movie and the Dark Knight movie today but we can’t see both! Maybe we’ll just have to go down to the movie theater and see which one has seats available! I’d prefer to see the Dark Knight movie but don’t know if we can get in – I’ve heard that there are really long lines to see it!

Many people think that celebrating the 4th of July as Independence day is celebrating the anniversary of the day that the Declaration of Independence was signed. I know I did! I recently found out that the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 2nd, not July 4th!
The reason we celebrate on July 4th is because the year AFTER the Declaration of Independence was signed no one thought about having a big deal celebration until the day AFTER – on July 3rd! And it took them a day to line up a celebration! Ever since then, Independence Day has been celebrated on the 4th of July!
