Interesting Facts About Independence Day

The Business of Fireworks

 

As most middle-school age kids know, in the summer of 1776, representatives of the 13 colonies considered a resolution that would declare their independence from Great Britain. And on July 2nd of the same year, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence. Then on July 4, 1776, the delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence, arguably the nation’s most historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson.

Something to Think About at the Start of 2018

Posted by Doug Kinsey on Jan 2, 2018 10:17:48 AM

 I read the following email from "The Art of Manliness" this morning, and thought that it would be of value to all of our readers as we reflect on the old year, and plan for the new year.  One of the things I enjoy about the AOM website and blog is that the host, Brett McKay exlplores a wide variety of subjects that are intriguing, potentially life-changing, and valuable not only for men.  He also interviews successful and creative people on his podcast.  I highly recommend it. 

Today's email was really thought-provoking, so I wanted to pass it on to all of you.  If you get something out of it (or even if you don't), please let me know.

 As we close out 2017, and look toward the new year, improving decision making may be on some of our lists of resolutions.  I read this article this morning on the Farnam Street Blog, and thought it was worthy of year-end reflection.
