Okay, so in this day and age of instantaneous internet answers, here's a challenge for you...

2) Which 2 died on the SAME 4th of July, and why was that date significant?

3) Which president was BORN in the 4th of July?

Happy hunting!

Good for you! What did you win...hum...I'll lay out your next quilt for you...oh, wait, I do that for you anyway, LOL. I'd offer to clean for you, but if you've seen my house, you know that's not much of a prize!
I'll come organize your kitchen...or did you do that this week?
