Random Photo Entry 3 - Let Freedom Ring

I decided to put in place a theme for this random photo entry. For those of us in the United States, it's Independence Day weekend, when we show our love for our country and freedom by overindulgence and polluting the air with fireworks. Not glamourous-sounding, but it's still fun to me!

I'm thankful for living in America, and here's why:

Above: In America, I can pay to run and get a medal just for finishing! (This photo is a bit dated, so a few of the recent medals that can't fit on this hook are missing... *blush*)

Above: Things grow easily in most of America's climates, including my still-alive forget-me-not sprouts!

Above: A novice like me can bake blueberry pie filling bread and get compliments over it!

Above: I can go to Asian markets to get ingredients to make my own sushi! (fillings: imitation crab meat, avocado, cucumber, smoked salmon, vegan cream cheese)

Other reasons why America is great:
  • ethnic cuisine is abundant
  • most Americans will acknowledge that we have a diminuative geographical or historical background and that in general, and that other countries are just as good as ours and we had better watch out... and finally, that we are simply too fat
  • stole reality TV and made a huge, huge culture out of it
  • theme parks
  • our President
  • cool flag
  • it's the home of the late MJ


  1. Your sushi looks really good, and I can't believe all of those medals! Happy fourth!

  2. Mmmm that sushi looks amazing! Really cute photos too! I hope you had a great time on the 4th!
