4th of July History  

On July 2, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of declaring independence from Great Britain. The Declaration of Independence was officially adopted two days later, marked by the ringing of the Liberty Bell at Independence Hall in Philadelphia.  At the time, John Adams believed that July 2, not July 4, would be the date remembered by history. Annoyed that Independence Day wasn't celebrated on July 2, Adams reportedly turned down invitations to July 4 celebrations throughtout his life.

Massachusetts became the first state to make the 4th of July an official state holiday in 1781.

President Zachary Taylor died in 1850 after eating spoiled food at a July 4 celebration.


So there you have it, just never know how things will go! The 4th of July is a big holiday for hot dogs and has become a national celebration with fireworks, parties, enjoying summer to the fullest!

We can't let it go at this though. Of course, be safe, especially with boating, swimming, fireworks, just think first!

And as pet owners, be mindful of the loud noises from the fireworks, it scares them and hurts their ears. Fireworks is not a normal sound for animals with all the various bangs, sizzles, squeals, etc. then with the bright lights. Seriously, help your pets out, beforehand discuss with your vet possible medication to help calm them, try putting them in a room away from all the distractions, activities and sounds. Maybe have a radio playing low to drown out the bangs. has a list of local quality contractors, we highlight them individually with news articles generally each month on and feature in our newsletters throughout the year. We have had experience with them and even before bringing these companies on board - they must adhere to quality work and the importance of customer service. So when you need some work done we would be grateful to have you contact the businesses in our recommended service providers guide. Thank you!

College graduate? High School Graduate? Looking for work? Many of our businesses referred to above are looking for good hard-working employees. Take a look at all of them, then give them a call or just send in your resume! Be sure your resume explains what you've done for classes or training, be sure your grammar and spelling are what they should be. Always, always review your application & resume before sending it.  Many businesses don't require it but, the secretary may screen first and if it's poorly written, sloppy like you didn't put much effort into it, that shows you probably won't put effort in as an employee. Show you care enough to present yourself properly.

One thing that isn't helping home buyers, is not having a home inspection. In this current state of real estate transactions it is discouraged to get that house inspected. This is not in a home-buyer's best interest.  People are getting them after closing then finding out all of the issues with the house that is now going to cost a lot of money to repair. Money that probably is hard to have since housing market prices are so over-the-top high.  Stretched your budget and now no money to get your house fixed, maybe even safe!

Did you plan on putting on a new roof so soon? Because if you don't, leaks will, if not already happening, cause hidden damage in many cases.  You didn't know the stairway wasn't safe. Or how about that furnace that need to be replaced? 

Stick to your guns when buying a house, get that home inspected. Of course, we recommend you call Jim Salmon, home inspector! 585-589-5650
