Happy Independence Day!





"Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation and freedom in all just pursuits."  ~ Thomas Jefferson



"This, then, is the state of the union: free and restless, growing and full of hope. So it was in the beginning.  So it shall always be,  While God is willing, and we are strong enough to keep the faith."    ~ Lyndon B. Johnson
