I would like to take this opportunity to wish a Happy Fourth of July to all of my friends and family back home in the USA and to all Americans living here in Malaysia. Here in Penang there is a July 4th celebration at Hard Rock Hotel, but unfortunately I am passing. I am sure there are a few other celebrations going on elsewhere in Malaysia. As for me, I will have a couple of drinks and will be thinking of all of the cookouts, fireworks, parades and other celebrations my family and friends will be attending. And of course I will be thinking of the fantastic 4th of July celebration and fireworks at the Hatch Shell in Boston, with the Boston Pops Orchestra. I will always miss the 1812 Overture played with the fantastic fireworks.
