Declaring Independence from Internet Monotony
Yes, it's Independence Day weekend in the US, but we hasten to assure our readers that nothing in this Post issue is about 1776, the fireworks industry, or current politics. Instead, we do what most North Americans do the first weekend in July1. We celebrate the glories of summer in the northern hemisphere: the holidays, the natural beauty, breaks from the routine. . . what was your most memorable summer experience? This month's Create challenge invites you to share your stories and pictures. Maybe you didn't overthrow a government on your holiday, but we're sure something happened to you worth sharing. So search your memories and your photo files. You know where to send them.
And that's us this week. Get to work reading, commenting, and planning revenge. Next week will be here before you know it. At that time, we will have more quizzes, even dumber jokes, and a scary summer story that will have you looking under the bed at night, especially if you live near Liverpool. With all that to look forward to, have a great week! Go make some summer memories!
PS See that thing over there? It was celebrating the summer solstice by trying to raid the bird feeder under cover of darkness. The bird feeder proved more than a match for him, although the neighbours are complaining that he's managed to open even 'animal-proof' locked dustbins.
What is you, you say? Oh, it's a raccoon, the scourge of the North American backyard. They're bandits. Germans call them 'wash bears' because they wash their food. We call them many things, not all of which will get past the filther. See those stripes across his eyes? He wears a mask, does this guy, just like a comic-book burglar. It's appropriate: raccoons have tiny hands, and can open all sorts of things.
