Gun free zones

Jonathan(who has a new blog URL) has posted a link to this video that I have embedded here. It's a way of showing how those gun free zone signs don't really stop criminals from bringing in fire arms anyway.
I have been thinking about this and really, it's the good law abiding citizens who would leave their guns out of these zones. Wouldn't it be better not to post these signs at all and let those people with concealed carry permits in? I think so.

The Golden Lamb

We went out for a long drive to have dinner at a famous restaurant in Lebanon Ohio, to experience dining at The Golden Lamb Inn and Restaurant
It was like going back in time. The restaurant is the oldest in Ohio and has quite a history to go along with it.
It has had many American presidents as visitors and famous writers such as Charles Dickens and Mark Twain.
You can even go upstairs and take a look at the rooms that they stayed in. You can also spend the night in one of the rooms.
The food was great, the town of Lebanon is pretty and very historical. There is also a lovely gift shop at the Inn.
I highly recommend visiting if you are ever in the state.

Independence day

My first 4th of July in the USA!!! We went out and ate a whole lot and ended the evening with the local fireworks display.
I have also tried kayaking, it was awesome, although I freaked out a little over a water snake though and if anything put me off, that did.
Here are some photos:

Above is a place we visited while kayaking, and below is a photo of the fireworks last night on july 4th.
