If One Decade Equaled One Year...


That's the premise of my July 4th piece in the Boston Herald. That is, one decade = one year, if you're a country. The United States is 23 going on 24.

Confused? So am I. But you get to go to the Herald website and get less confused. Look for "Sullivan". I should be around there somewhere. Meanwhile, have a Happy Independence Day!

*BOOM*

(That was the world's cheapest fireworks display, in case you were wondering.)

Soon, with more better stuff.

LOL! Seen a lot of fireworks and this is a first. Heading over to read the article.

There was a speck on my computer screen... and it looked like your page invited me to "roast a comment". That might be fun sometime if the parties were all willing and had a good sense of humor.
Else-wise... Boom, crackle, crackle.
back at cha! Happy 4th of July, Jim and WIFE! Oh and cheers!

This may be TMI, but I'm sharing anyway... I have a new health issue going on and in order to make it more "tangible" for the husband I explained it as this...

"Basically, the doctor says I the cysts have burst... it's like my own little firework display going on in there."

It may not be the cheapest firework display this weekend, but I will say it's the least fun. :)

Heading over to the Herald now...

That firework made it all the way into Canada, eh? Happy Fourth to you and yours, Jim.

Off to read the Herald..

Oh wait.. you're making me work to find it. I might be dense but the only Sullivan showing up in the search field are from 2009 and earlier. Help!

Hilary said...

Daryl said...

We were out of town until now, Daryl. I'll be answering e-mail as the day rolls on.

Hope you had a festive July 4th.

(And no, I won't mention how that firework sounded suspiciously like a fart.)

I looked but I didn't find "Sullivan" unless my specs need changing.
Happy sparkly bursts ! Even if I'm 3 days past.

A very clever way of looking at the history of your country. Great article.... the BH should be ecstatic to have found you.
