Summer is in full swing and, with that brings Independence Day. From east coast to west, red-blooded Americans are revving up their grills and buying fireworks. On this July fourth, we at BirdDog Software look forward to celebrating this time-tested American tradition. Now it's about time to light that fuse and get this party started. In the midst of all this good-natured destruction we should take time to think about how we got here. We should remember the men who fought to make a country of life and liberty. We should thank those who paved the way for our great nation to prosper. What better way to say “thanks” than blowing stuff up in our backyards? So let's crack open a cold one, throw some tea into the harbor, and party like it's 1776!
