    All it means to me is that it will be 44 years since I started at my last place of work.

    Bit of "Trivia" for you all.:smile:

    Did you know that US Presidents, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson & James Monroe died on the 4th July. Adams & Jefferson both died on the same day (1826)

    President Calvin Coolidge was Born on the 4th of July 1872.

    Thought you would not be able to get through the day without knowing that!

    Cheers

    Geoff

    The Brits celebrated along with the Yanks in the great classic movie, "The Great Escape". And it looked like they were enjoying themselves while doing it, even though they were in a POW camp.

    I have celebrated with American friends but would say that was 15 years ago and we did have a good time.

    I hope you have a great day
