Excellent stuff. Never really occurred to me to look into it before, but if I could zoom in on those documents and read them I’d be interested to know what they say!

Will look them up if I get a spare five minutes and remember.

Let me save you the trouble.  Generally speaking, history books reflect a fundamental misunderstanding of linguistic styles and common usage of the language at this time.  This has led to  misinterpretation of the meaning and misses the subtle humor and sarcasm  of our Founding Fathers.   For example, take the Declaration of Independence:

While  the Declaration of Independence does, in fact, formalize the fact we'd no longer pay any notice to the Brits, the explanation as to 'why'  is a subtle use of colloquialisms aimed at humiliation.  To summarize, they mention the frustration with a people who have a taste for cross-dressing that's led to the theft of clothes and jewelry owned by the Colonists' wives.  That while there had been little concern surrounding rape of wives and daughters, having to hide and protect young boys and livestock when British soldiers approached one's land was getting tiresome.  That the taxation to date had been tolerable and acceptable  similar to how one must often times support a useless, unemployed brother-in-law.  But there comes a point when enough is enough and they simply need to be cut off and left to figure it out on their own.   Finally, there's a subtle reference to the fact the Scots, Spanish and French had been regularly kicking their asses in battles worldwide, so how hard could it really be to kick their collective inbred ass out and back to their island nation? 

Hope this saves you some time.  RWG is nothing if not a place to share knowledge.

Awesome

There are dozens of Museums and iconic Buildings in DC, plus hundreds of interesting attractions and my favorite hangout places around DMV Metropolitan Area. It would take months to show BR everything.

Unless there is some other request, I think BR should head to England to spend some time with Mrs Peedog. :giggle:

Appreciate the sentiment, but I prefer to try and carry out my own balanced research and draw my own conclusions

I’d like to see a bit more if you have the time.

I suspect this will also be a sentence used if I take care of Big Red for a while

That is a great humor way to look at the Declaration of Independence.

When you’re all done up in DC I’d be happy to give Big Red a tour of the island down here in Puerto Rico. She probably could use some sun..

The next recipient had already been decided to be @peedog (with @bdnica as a backup). Just a little of forum searching you would know why. ;)

The member who have possession of BR determine who it will go to next. If you start trying to convince @peedog (or @bdnica ) now, you might be on the list.

I'm already planning out BR's agenda in Central America.  I have little doubt his stay with @peedog (more specifically the lovely Mrs. Peedog) will be one of the hardest acts to follow in the history of RWG.  So the planning stages are already in process.

Lux, awesome effort in a very short timeframe.  You too have raised the bar to a level that will not easily be reached by future hosts of BR.  (BTW, my daughter works in DC and lives in Old Alexandria just across the river.  What part do you call home?)
