Our Independence Day (commonly known as July 4th) is a day of celebration commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. On July 4, 1776, we declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain and we've been celebrating our freedom from that day on. According to historians, fireworks were introduced into the freedom celebration because John Adams wanted it that way. Before the Declaration of Independence was even signed, he envisioned fireworks as a central part of the festivities. According to a letter John Adams wrote to Abigail Adams on July 3, 1776, he stated that the day should be commemorated "with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever ...

Secure Tool Crib & Equipment Wire Cages In order to maintain tools in a high throughput area, I like to apply the acronym OSAP. Organization - Security - Accountability - Prevention Tool Crib and Equipment Wire Cages satisfy all areas of OSAP.

To all service members in all branches of our U.S. armed forces, we thank you for your courage, your strength, and your sacrifices. I would like to take a moment to reflect upon the service and sacrifice of our U.S. military servicemen and women. I'm sure you've seen a lot of images on the internet stating "Memorial Day is not another BBQ". Let's take that to heart. Many men and women have made great sacrifices to ensure our freedom. They have been uncomfortable so we can be comfortable. They have endured sleepless nights, no food, little shelter, and risk daily danger to their lives so we can be safe. Some have made the ultimate sacrifice by saving their friends and fighting for our country. ... Read more
