Default Happy fourth!

...for whoever celebrates it.

Have a nice bbq and lots of beer together with your family and friends.

Don't drink and drive!

And don't put firecrackers in each-other's pants, like some idiots did here some time ago during the Loi Krathong festival.


Edit: and for mod colleagues: Don't touch the threads in my blog! (i.e. moving them into some obscure thread, like it happened with May 4th one).

Yes indeed.

Happy Republic Day to everyone.

Also happy Liberaton Day to everyone.

And ... umm ... I can't think of anything else happening on 4th July, so I guess that is the entire list.

Have a good one.

With a computer virus!

What they didn't tell you is that the virus used against the aliens will soon destroy us all.

Haha, you guys are gorgeous. Love you all.

Today (July 5th) me and me'darling celebrate 37 years of knowing each other. A nice prime number. We met on July 5th, 1984, and have been together about 11 years before getting married. It is our family's biggest yearly celebration (kids' birthdays come second since they left us, when they were living with us, their birthdays were always first, haha. Our birthdays always came third, our marriage day fourth and out wedding day fifth - this top excludes the other common celebrations like Christmas, Easter, etc.)

Unfortunately, it seems that the evil aliens producers adopted that line. There was an execrable sequel that came out in 2016, 20 years after the original.

Even more unfortunately, it seems that the sequel grossed over twice its reported production cost, though less than half what the original grossed.

In the usual English usage, a "wedding" is a ceremony during which a marriage is "solemnized" (made a "public act"), so the marriage begins during or after the wedding. Here in the good ol' USA, a marriage can be solemnized by a Justice of the Peace (JP) without much ceremony.

Contrary to persistent legend, ships' captains (masters) are not authorized, ex officio, to solemnize marriages. However, if a marriage is solemnized aboard ship, the ship's master may become the registrar of the marriage.

I know a few couples that got married quietly, then some time later had a public wedding to celebrate the marriage. In one case the couple had eloped and concealed from one set of parents that they had been married for a couple of years before deciding to have a "real" wedding.

I can't speak to LaurV's circumstances.

Some friends from 2 different countries got civilly married in one spouse's country (because of that country's laws). Then a bit later they had their "real" church based wedding in the other spouse's home country (only after this one did they 'act married'). Then they came back to the first country for a reception. Since then they have lived in 3 countries in 4 different stints.

A young couple that I know was slated to get married in May 2020 (I have the invite still hanging up). They scrambled to figure out what to do. I told them about the idea of a simple one, then later a ceremony for everyone. They did a simple ceremony in woods that was streamed. The father of the groom officiated and the mother of the groom and father of the bride (who did the video work) were witnesses.
