I'm off but I get holiday pay.  Not to be confused with vacation pay.  My wife's Canadian and when she wants to talk about my "holiday" dates, I get confused, and the conversation turns into a kind of "Who's On First?"

Me: "Which one, you mean today?" 
Her: "No, I mean the one you're taking in July." 
Me: "Well, that's today, July 4th is a holiday."
Her: "It starts today?!! I thought you said it was the last two weeks in July?!!"
Me:  "No, my vacation starts the last two weeks in July.  Today is just a holiday".
Her: "I'm not asking about today!"
Me:  "Then what are you asking about?"
Her:  "Your holiday!!"
Me:  "That's today."
Her: "Never mind, would you pour me some coffee please?"

Happy 4th to all!  It might be a US holiday, but all nations have an investment in it.  An investment of people.

Just noticed the Nixie Tube Calendar in the background.... cOOl!

Of course the AEs are alright as well!

Happy 4th everyone. I celebrated Canada Day from the US so I had to come home to celebrate Independance Day from Canada.

Yes, they are. Another of my favorite topics. https://goo.gl/photos/LLdQ3sEXc1xycptW7

They are neon gas based, just like the 426A tube inside some older phones.
