The Best of the Fourth of July

By SJ Otto
It's the 4rth of July--Independents' day. So what should you serve for drinks for your family and friends. For a whole bunch of fruity drinks that are red, white and blue, click here.

Then there is food. Cherries are good. Anything with cherries is good.
Hot dogs are all American. Here are some food recipes. For more great food ideas click here.

Then there is fireworks--among my favourites holiday things. I like rockets of any kind. Fireworks are a must. Anything that flies is fun. I like roman candles, sparklers and those mortars that are so popular. Colored smoke bombs are cool. Home made stuff can be fun.   

Then there is music. There are those classics like This land is your land:

This Land Is Your Land - Woody Guthrie 

 And I like songs about revolution, such as;

Tracy Chapman - Talkin' bout a Revolution 

Something in the Air - Tom Petty

Jefferson Airplane - Volunteers 

And lost but not least, for political inspiration: The Idiot Factor, "Happy Fourth of July—it was the creation of a new nation, for good or bad—Now it's time for fireworks
