I didn’t do much of anything, really, did some shopping and that was it. I did get a couple of emails saying ‘happy 4th of July’ from British mates, which was nice.
I did get a kick out of this story from Reuters UK (Reuters is one of the biggest and oldest news groups in the world, and based in England) about the annual 4th of July Nathan’s hot dog eating contest. This year’s contest was the first in 6 years that was won by an American, and they ended the story and interview with this paragraph:
“The United States has the highest prevalence of obesity among developed countries, at about one-third of the adult population, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 60 million adults are obese.”
That’s good, innit?
