Happy Birthday Cousins
4th-July copy.gif
Variously known as the Fourth of July and Independence Day, July 4th has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the American Revolution (1775-83). In June 1776, representatives of the 13 colonies declare their independence from Great Britain. On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later its delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. The formal end of the war did not occur until the Treaty of Paris (for the U.S.) and the Treaties of Versailles (for the other Allies) were signed on September 3rd, 1783. The last British troops left New York City on Nov 25th,1783, and the Congress of the Confederation ratified the Paris treaty on January 14th,1784

Please RSVP to Rachel with your breakfast reservations! catered by Selina for only $4 per plate!  
 If you can only come for the meeting part, please let her know also. Rachel Adams <racheljulieadams@gmail.com>
Without involved members our lovely cottage couldn't exist so we want to make it as convenient as possible for you to be involved and this meeting change is a big step that we hope allows many more members to participate in not only the running of the cottage, but our wonderful community.  Many of us have created exceptional lifelong friendships within HOE that we wouldn't have had otherwise. Hosting at the cottage is also such a delight in so many ways - we get to meet fascinating people and talk about all sorts of things English!  We need more hosts though, if you could create space in your calendar to host on a Saturday or Sunday at least two or three times a year it would help us enormously.  If you've never hosted before I'll come and show you the ropes (actually the kettle) and give you all my fun hosting tips! Plus, we have Dennis - our wonderful greeter who makes it so easy to enjoy the day.  Come to the meeting and find out more.
Monthly Meeting now on the first Saturday of the month at 9:30-11:00am at the Hall of Nations.The House of England cottage is also open every Sunday from 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m.Please drop in for a spot of tea and a chance to learn a bit about the history and traditions of England.

Prior to 1740, sailors daily tot of Rum was a pint a day, which they drank neat, that is without water! Before battle they were issued a double 'tot', and always after victory, for a job well done! As they fought drunk (it’s merely a flesh wound) or sober around the globe to keep the British Empire's sea lanes open.
It was not until July 31st, 1970 that the Admiralty Board abolished the daily issue of Rum.

It is also the first day of Autumn in the Celtic Calendar
In the northern hemisphere, the fall equinox marks the first day of fall (autumn)
Small animals retreated from advancing harvesters by hiding in the remaining crop,
and in times gone by, every farmer went to great lengths to ensure that his last field
would be harvested before a next door neighbor or other man in the village.
Thus the call..."Have you put the hare out yet?"

The Battle of Trafalgar

“England expects every man will do his duty”
.
Admiral Nelson's crushing defeat of the French and Spanish Navies, establishing Britain as the dominant world naval power for a century. As the British Fleet bore down on the Franco-Spanish line Nelson directed Lieutenant Pascoe, the signal officer of Victory, to send the signal to the Fleet “Nelson confides every man will do his duty.” Captain Hardy and Pascoe suggested this be changed to “England expects every man will do his duty”. Nelson agreed. As the signal ran up Victory’s halyard the Fleet burst into cheers. Nelson followed this with his standard battle signal “Engage the enemy more closely”. An American captain sailing into Cadiz assured the French admiral that Nelson was still in London. How wrong he was, in the forth comming battle the French and Spanish Fleets were anhilatedAlthough it cost Nelson his life, in his final letter Nelson asked that the Nation look after his mistress, Lady Emma Hamilton, and their daughter, Horatia, but nothing was done and she died in povity in Calais in 1815.You can trace any member of the British Fleet by searching on this web site:
