We had a wonderful 4th of July at Brighton (and got some relief from
London's unusually hot weather).
We hope everyone in the U.S.A. had a wonderful 4th.
Also, Magne and Liv (our 1st cousins in Norway) celebrated their 31st
wedding anniversary today, as well as their first grandson's First Birthday!
