Happy Independence Day to everyone! And if you’re not American, happy Thursday. I decided to celebrate this holiday by being grateful that my tax dollars aren’t being used to fund the Middleton family in any way (these are photos of Carole & Michael at Wimbledon yesterday). USA! USA!

    If I had Carole Middleton’s money & had those eyelids, I’d get ‘em fixed. Just sayin’.

    • FLORC says:

      It’s a family trait. She’s had them worked on before. Kate has too pre engagement, but the bags are coming back on both. Just one of those things you can’t fix with surgery without looking unnatural.

      Having my tax dollars not fund the Middletons. I’ll drink to that.

    • Sassy says:

      The woman could wear a more flattering eye makeup look. Eliminate the black ringing the eye, which makes the eye look smaller. Emphasize the crease area and do a soft edging to the eye. But – if that dreadful eyeliner look is tattooed on, forget it. Same with Kate. Her under eye bags are accentuated with the black lower eyeliner. Soft smudgier would be much better.

    Happy 4th, my fellow USA’ers!

    Happy 4th of July!

    I’ve seen the play the Butler is based on. It was great, but the subject is the butler and his experiences in the White House. Changing the title seems silly.

    Happy 4th of July!
    Thank you all for not calling our company and asking for websites today! It’s making for an easy Thursday :)

    Happy 4th!!
    Your reason for celebrating is great! It made me laugh out loud. :D

    Beady eyes and too much kohl liner… sadly, Kate and Pippa jumped all over that bandwagon. Maybe the British taxpayers can hire a new stylist for the Middleton gals.

    Pippa looks great in this photo.

    Happy 4th of July! Kabob’s are on the menu :)

    Bah. I’m going to say it Hate the 4th of July. But mostly because all the idiots with firecrackers terrify the dogs.

    Happy Independence Day to everyone!

    As for TWC, the MPAA and ‘The Butler’….

    There is a lot more to the story. Let’s just say that TWC tried to strong arm Warner Brothers and the MPAA into getting what they want on this. There are rules and regulations set down that were agreed upon by all the studios way back when the MPAA was founded, Harvey and Co decided that the rules didn’t pertain to them. It’s not about ‘confusion’ between the two films. It’s about the rules.

    Funny… Considering that TWC distributed the film ‘Bully’ last year, that they tried to bully WB into getting what they want.

    DON’T get me started on how my tax dollars are spent!!!! Happy 4th.

    Although….Americans are way more obsessed with the Middletons than anyone in the commonwealth!

    Happy 4th of July American friends!!!

    Big Brother this year is really disturbing. I had no idea about all the controversy going on because I do not watch the live feeds or BB After Dark. I’ve been saying since the first episode though that each contestant seems to fit the typical Big Brother contestant stereotype – but to the EXTREME. Several of my friends and family members also watch it and they have also said that this is the dumbest and grossest cast yet. There just isn’t one likeable person on there (although Helen seems decent, they really haven’t shown much of her, and I’m guessing that’s because she hasn’t done anything overly ridiculous yet).

    Happy 4th & Happy Thursday (Friday in some parts, already)! The SO and I got up early to do yard work before the heat set in, and once it was too hot to work, we had a big discussion about whether the local hardware store would be open today – which it totally is. There was even a line at the cashier. So, I won that round, thank you very much.

    Okay, I know that there won’t be a lot of people around to answer this during the day, but hopefully y’all will come back at night.

    I know this 19 year old soldier, through my aunt who lives in Fort Drum. He’s going to Afghanistan soon, and I was going to send him some cookies, fudge, tablet (good on whoever mentioned it yesterday), and any other baked goods that travel well.

    So I was wondering if anyone had any recipes, beyond the basic cookies, fudge, and so on…recipes that will travel well in a box.

    Thanks (even if you don’t give me anything)!

    America! F*ck yeah! Hahaha! Great theme song. Happy 4th to my fellow Americans! I will join in the toast to my money not going to the Middletons.

  20. I Choose Me says:

    Happy Independence Day to all you Americans. Have a fun and stay safe.

    That girl in the black leggings/tights in the background of the Middleton pics looks pretty cute.

    Happy 4th to all CB readers and my nephew and friend born on this day

    Happy Independence Day Everyone!!! Lots of laughs on putting Carol Middleton on the front of your 4th of July shoutout. Though I do love her outfit. Maybe it is fitting though since Carol does resemble the proud and fierce predator the bald eagle. She is an expert and patient hunter. After all it took her 28 years to lock down her prey.

    Happy 4th of July, peeps!!

    Fingers crossed fireworks don’t get rained out here in upstate NY. BBQ and margaritas poolside will reign nonetheless. :)

    Pictures of Johnny & Amber just make me miss the lovely Vanessa Paradis. Men and their midlife crisis chiquitas. *Le sigh*

    DANG is this the future look of the Queen of England


  25. Nicolette says:

    Happy 4th of July everyone! Happy Birthday to my beloved country, and thanks to all who defend our freedoms everyday :)

  26. Angelique says:

    Good Golly! When will that woman slither back under her rock?

  27. Sakota says:

    Lately, the Middletons and BRF in general remind me of all our forefathers did to protect us from having to finance the lifestyles of these people.


  28. hi says:

    love the 4th
    in your face Duchess of Cambridge/Windsor Clan

    would have been ironic for that kid to make an entrance today…..lol
