Happy 4th of JULY!!

Wishing you all a wonderful relaxing holiday weekend full of sunshine, family, friends and fun! Jeremy, Hamish and I will be celebrating in Indiana with family.  Be safe!
Some USA facts:
 -2.5 million- In July 1776, the estimated number of people living in the newly independent nation

-309.6 million-The nation's estimated population on this July Fourth, 2010

-More than 1 in 4-The chance that the hot dogs and pork sausages consumed on the Fourth of July originated in Iowa. The Hawkeye State was home to 18.9 million hogs and pigs on March 1, 2010. This represents more than one-fourth of the nation's total. North Carolina (9.1 million) and Minnesota (7.2 million) were the runners-up.

-$209 million-The value of fireworks imported from China in 2009, representing the bulk of all U.S. fireworks imported ($217 million). U.S. exports of fireworks, by comparison, came to just $42.9 million in 2009, with the United Arab Emirates purchasing more than any other country ($14.5 million).
