Thank you, Louie. This one was fairly easy. I just lifted the code off of my page and pasted it in. Only problem is, when I previewed it the table went the full width of the screen, then when I posted it came up on the left side so my nyc skyline isn't centered. Not a big problem, I guess. But, I am just a perfectionist, I want it to be right.

You have a nice day tomorrow. Try to stay out of the sun, and take your shades. :-)

And you did get it right with a BANG! It looks great!: )

Yes, it has. I was going to remind everyone to be mindful of what we are celebrating on Independence Day, but those of us here already KNOW what it means and the price that has been paid for our freedom. I don't mean to put a damper on our holiday, but it is very distressing to me that many people do not, expecially many of our young people.

My America

I celebrate my country everyday that I live,
everyday that I wake up free to do as
I choose, go where I please, worship in my way
and speak my mind without fear of reprisal.
I am awed by the overwhelming splendor
and beauty of my America.

We are a people joined together by love,
duty and friendship. When other countries
in the world suffer catastrophic disasters,
we Americans are the first to respond
To a call of help. With unselfish love
and caring hearts we share our money,
food, time and prayers to those in need.

I celebrate the goodness and glory
of this great country. The glory we would
not have but for the many men and women
who so proudly serve and defend
this land. I humbly salute them and those who
have lost their lives in honor of America.

I celebrate the vast number of cultures
in this country, a people as varied right
here in America as in the whole world.
I celebrate and honor the Native American Indian
who has sacrificed and suffered for so many years.

I celebrate the great institution known as family,
where love stems and flows forever.
From Mom's apple pie and wisdom, to Dad's
wealth of knowledge and guidance . We gather
together in love and laughter…..and freedom.

I celebrate our wonderful holidays!
When family and friends gather together
to share our many blessings. My heart
is full to bursting with love for my country!

Good morning, whoever. You are a night owl, like me, I see. :-)

I am about ready to shut down though. It has been a long day trying to get that awful virus off of my computer. I think I have it all cleaned off now, but my computer is still acting a little sick. I lost at least ten programs that I will have to locate and re-install. Grrrrrr! I now have a good anti-virus program which will be running at all times. I don't want to ever go through this again! I just don't understand what kind of charge these people get from making these virus' and sending them out. :-(

I can't get it to play. :-(

The problem is probably on my end though. I have had a sick computer. After I re-boot, I will try it again.

Happy 4th of July to you!

Wow, Jim, I just noticed that you have put part of our opening graphic on FR's front page and linked to this thread. Thank you!!! We appreciate you bringing people to our thread.

(Unfortunately, my table didn't post the way it looked in "preview". It was supposed to span the full width of the page. My nyc skyline is off center now because the table came up narrower and on the left side of the page. I guess it isn't a big problem, but it bothers me because it isn't the way it is supposed to look.)

A delightful thread, once again, Mama Bear - especially on this very special day! Thank you for all the effort!

And, to JimRob, whose spirit and lover of liberty mirrors that of the founders of this nation, SALUTE!

Been searching some historical websites and finding more information about America's history and its roots in the love of liberty.

Found This Website: Archiving Early America which has several flash "movies" on historical subjects, including the Declaration of Independence and the life of George Washington.

Here is another link to a site called Igniting Freedom's Flame concerning the 225th Anniversary of the American Revolutionary War (which was last summer). Good info here including this graphic:

(sorry I missed this celebration last summer on the mall in DC - I bet some Freepers were there.

I know there is a PBS documentary today on the life of George Washington, discussed in several threads including This one re: the PBS program tonight at 9:30 called "The Man Who Made Independence Happen"

Will try to post other links to the best historical websites re: America's Birth and the people and ideals who brought her into being. Of course, behind it all, was the guiding hand of God in our founding, whose miraculous interventions at critical points along the road to freedom are simply amazing to discover and to contemplate, leading us to truly be

One Nation, Under God

I'm on my way out the door.

Spectacular, Lori! You just never disappoint! It's the prettiest 4th of July page on the net! I knew it would be. (And the skyline is centered if you view it 800 x 600)

Jim knew where to go to put the splash on the front page! :)


Happy Independence Day! Stay Safe!

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY, ALL!!!!

How THANKFUL I am this Independence Day......the first one I am celebrating with our son in the military........to have George W. Bush as our Commander in Chief!!

I love this country, and I am so THRILLED that there is a renewed patriotism among its people! I know that it is in part due to the tragedy of 9/11, but it is also in part due to the leadership of our President, who loves his country, and has shared that love with its people.

Thank You, LORD! I pray that God will continue to put a shield of protection over this great country that HE has so greatly blessed!

Your post says it so well - it's such a proud feeling being an American with someone we respect as Commander in Chief, and you have even more reason, with Eric starting to serve his country now. Have a glorious weekend!

Staying too dry in our part of Texas. San Antonio area floods, West Texas area parched.
