Good afternoon folks, this fine Thursday is July 4th, and most of us Americans are celebrating our country’s Independence Day. This means many of us are likely out at the pool having a barbeque, and enjoying the day with our friends and family. We’ll be taking the day off here at Android Community (for the most part) and enjoying some much needed time with family, and even the dreaded in-laws.

We wanted to take a moment and wish you all a Happy Independence Day, and a safe July 4th day and weekend. I know I’ll be enjoying a cold beverage or two, while trying to stay out of this Vegas heat wave for most of the day. For those who aren’t American or celebrate the day… enjoy your Thursday.

Later however, it’s all about the Fireworks. They don’t sell the good stuff here, but Vegas always does it right. I’ll be headed to the strip to watch the festivities as Caesars Palace, The Wynn, and Bellagio light up the night sky with fireworks this fine July 4th.

With that, we wanted to ask what you guys (our readers) will be doing today. Whether that be trying some new games on that new Galaxy S 4 or HTC One, flashing the lastest CM10.1 on your Nexus 7, or taking the Motorcycles out for a good ride. Be safe, enjoy the day and holiday weekend, and drop us a comment below with your July 4th plans. If you’re looking for a way to show your spirit, check out our July 4th Apps Roundup.

Enjoy your friends, family, food, beverages, and most importantly stay safe. Happy Independence Day!
