    SECTION ONE - The Ships In The Harbor - Almost Ready To Launch

    July the Forth is always associated with tall ships in a harbor. This July forth, there is a particular ship and it is almost ready to set sail. I am talking about the launching of THE BOOMERS INTERNATIONAL WEBSITE. It is becoming a thing of beauty. It will be your playground. It will be your home. We would like it to be the most successful site on the Internet.

    We need your help to make that happen.

    You members of The Boomers International Club are like family to us. As it is in all close families, we must pull together to make this work. First and foremost, we need all of you to join the Website - you are the charter members. Then we need you to help us get new members. We need you to tell anybody and everybody you know to go to the site and sign onboard. Membership for now is FREE. Tell them to go to BoomersInt.com and join us in a venture that will change the Internet, and ultimately make the world a better place to live.

    The sun is about to rise on this new day in the Internet harbor. The champagne bottle is ready to break over the bow. Help us celebrate.

    Tell your friends and family to sign onboard.

    Peace

    SECTION TWO - SUMMER SUNBURN

    
    
    
    

    Sunny days can mean sunburns. This is what the editors of Prevention magazine have to say about sunburns and how to treat them.

    "In a case of mild sunburn, the skin will feel hot and tight. It will also look pink to scarlet in color. In a severe sunburn, the color will be deeper, a reddish-purple hue. Swelling and blistering may develop.

    Heat rash can develop soon after a sunburn. As the burn heals, the skin will darken and peel. Mottled discoloration may appear and last for months or years.

    BEST RESPONSE:

    ...For all-over relief from a mild sunburn, try a soothing bath...pour a cup of white vinegar into a tub of cool - not hot - water which will reduce the redness and swelling. And drink plenty of water to replace lost fluids.

    You can repeat with cold soaks for 10 to 20 minutes at a time, two to four times a day. In between soaks, you should soothe particularly sore and red areas. A sprinkling of baby powder can be soothing and help you ease into your clothes.

    If your sunburn is severe - meaning the skin blisters and swells - see a physician."
    SECTION THREE - HAPPY JULY 4TH!!

     
    

    What does this holiday really mean? Read below:

    Drafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11 and June 28, 1776, the Declaration of Independence is at once the nation's most cherished symbol of liberty and Jefferson's most enduring monument. Here, in exalted and unforgettable phrases, Jefferson expressed the convictions in the minds and hearts of the American people.

    THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE A Transcription

    IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

    The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

    When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...

    To read the entire transcript, click on The Declaration Of Independence

    Show it to your children. God bless America.

    SECTION FOUR - A TASTE OF SUMMER

     

    There used to be a time when you could only get strawberries in the summer. Cherries were available very briefly and then disappeared like firefly light from the shelves. Watermelon offered up its peculiar sweetness from June through August then hid for the other nine months.

    Lemonade was strictly for summer and was unavailable at any other time (even if it was in the grocery store, you didn't notice it until June).

    You could get iced tea in restaurants during all four seasons but the waiter would make a face if you asked for it from September through May.

    We used to know summer was here by the fruit rinds and peels on our table, the tastes in our glasses. Now we have other benchmarks to mark that a new season has come to join us. Not better benchmarks. Not worse. Just different.

    But I still miss the tastes of my summers.
