July 4

"Today,  the Fourth of July, the American national holiday, the Embassy of the United States teams up with “Serve the City” for volunteer service in Brussels.This morning Ambassador of the United States Howard Gutman (here at the microphone) and a team of Embassy volunteers put themselves at the disposal of Serve the City, as part of that association’s Big Volunteer Week, from July 2 to July 9. This group helps out at one of Serve the City’s projects for the less fortunate".
Happy 4th to all Americans worldwide!


  1. Got up early this morning to watch the Peachtree Road Race while having my morning coffee. Then it was the Tour de France today in the Rhone Valley area and knitting my baby blanket. Would you like to see the one I knitted last year? My daughter’s friend wanted one looking like the flag of France, so it is what I did, you can see it at the end of this post: http://avagabonde.blogspot.com/2010/07/song-of-france-and-ohio-state.html.

    The finished blanket is at the end of that post: http://avagabonde.blogspot.com/2010/07/father-of-los-angeles-harbor.html. But this year the yarn is rainbow color mixed with ice blue. You have a nice volunteer group.

  2. What a wonderful idea. We should have this everywhere!

  3. Merci, anni, and happy 4th to your husband, too!

    It is wonderful to see good things being done... love this post!


  4. Thank you all, wish the Ambassador would have a look at my blog ! He would appreciate your comments. He is a very creative and hardworking man.

  5. Wow, you met Gutman! Interesting guy!
    He does the same as you: he visits the entire country, in order to know it better... so you do, and this learns us more about this tiny country!

  6. Une belle initiative cette association...
    Belle journée,
