Happy Fourth of July to you all and I hope you all are planning on a great day with good food, wonderful weather and great company! I thought in order to celebrate our patriotic day, I'd share some fun fourth of July Facts I stumbled upon, during some research for my fourth of July Post! Here are some fun, whimsical and interestingly and extremely random facts about this patriotic day:
Another fantastic and pretty funny portion of our Nation's history, that may or may not have been written or intended to be a bit humorous upon it's creation can be found in Ben Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanac (published under a pseudo-name), Franklin had many witty remarks and one-liners that tickled my funny bone (information found at: http://www.richhall.com/poor_richard.htm) *Remember that time is money.*A little neglect may breed mischief: for want of a nail, the shoe was lost; for want of a shoe the horse was lost; and for want of a horse the rider was lost*A penny saved is a penny earned*Many dishes many diseases, Many medicines few cures.*Blame-all and Praise-all are two blockheads*Pain wastes the Body, Pleasures the Understanding.*Of learned Fools I have seen ten times ten, Of unlearned wise men I have seen a hundred.*Any fool can criticise, condemn and complain and most fools do.*Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.*Fish and visitors smell in three days.*Genius without education is like silver in the mine.*God helps them that help themselves.*Haste makes waste.*Hide not your talents.
