A good many folks in this country are looking to change the holiday name to Dependence Day! But I have to agree with you, hope you all have a nice INdependence day and that we remember why we celebrate it.

Nope, but we have the Avon river.
Paddled some miles of that.
Google "Avon descent" ;)

My celebration is to make red white and blue chips on the Bridgeport. Using carbide, 4140 chips come off red, and turn a deep shade of blue as they pile up. If you contrast the shiny white of the metal, the red glowing chips and the piles of blue swarf you can have your own in-shop celebration.
