“With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God’s work must truly be our own.”
~ from the inspiring Inaugural Address of
President John Fitzgerald Kennedy
35th President of
the United States of America
& U.S. Navy veteran
The celebration of freedom is colorfully etched in the night sky by Fourth of July fireworks set off at Dorney Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
Happy Birthday, America! Bravo!
How wonderful it would be to have fireworks – and the fire of patriotism – in our hearts every day!

“…I fell in love with you
and then you went away
But now you’re coming home to stay
Hot dog, soon everything will be all right
Hot dog, we’re gonna have a ball tonight
I’ve got a pocketful of dimes
It’s gonna be just like old times, hot dog …”
~ “Hot Dog”
~written by Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller
~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
on the 1957 album “Loving You”
Hot dog! It's a rare warm February evening when the iconic Jimmy's Doggie Stand lights up a winter night on the corner of Union Square in historic Phillipsburg, New Jersey.
