United States Map in Crayon Colors

Maps are like sad songs. They say so much.

I kind of like the map below because of its crayon-brights blocks of color!

The product description says:

Crayon-bright blocks of color make the “United States Map” especially easy to read – and make a bold style statement at the same time. State names and borders are clearly marked, as well as international borders, state capitals, secondary cities, and an inset map of Alaska and Hawaii. The map is a fun, appealing learning tool for kids, and an eye-catching artwork for adults.

It sure caught my eye! Instead of viewing my beloved country in intensities of hot and cold, or red or blue, I rather like seeing it as a rainbow! South Africa is called a Rainbow Nation. I like the concept.

July is a Popular Month for Independence Days

While doing research to write an article about my father's land of birth, came across an interesting … uuhhh … ??? ... “coincidence”? The month of July is a very popular month for independence days.





  • The Bahamas - July 10th
  • United States of America - July 4th
  • Argentina - July 9th
  • France - July 14th
  • Colombia - July 20th
  • Cuba - 26th of July Movement
Didn't do extensive research but there looks like a pattern here.  Must be something about a hot summer month.

- Who would willingly choose to do battle in the dead of winter?

- Spring time is a time for lovers? The birds and the bees, the flowers and the trees. Etc.

- Autumn is out of the question. You can't sneak up on the enemy because the dead leaves on the ground make too much noise when you step on 'em!!
 
- Fighting for your freedom in the month of July?  Makes perfect sense.


Cool thing about The Bahamas is they peacefully negotiated their independence from the British. Now that's a noteworthy historical note!  Wouldn't you agree?

The Bible says “Give honor to whom honor is due”. Heard this report on the radio this morning. Today I am celebrating my 59th birthday which means this man has been a loyal and faithful servant of the people for as long as I’ve been living. Want to take a minute to give a shout out to a man who has continued to push the plow so that all the citizens can reap the benefits of the harvest of his hard labor and dedication.  Tribute to a real life Captain America

* * * This is just a side note but there seems to be a debate raging about the future of television; a discussion which has not yet peaked my interest. But if there is just one word uttered, moaned, groaned, whispered, or even indirectly hinted at, about getting rid of or replacing public radio broadcasting, putting on my boxing gloves. Gonna have to get into the ring!!!
