Betty MacDonald and International Betty MacDonald fan club conference voting

Betty MacDonald fan club fans,

Betty MacDonald fan club fans from all over the world should have the opportunity to vote for their favourite city.

Heidelberg is a very beautiful city but next International Betty MacDonald fan club Conference could also be in Australia.

There are so many Betty MacDonald fan club fans from Australia.

I wonder which place is Betty MacDonald fan club honor member Mr. Tigerli's favourite.

I'm very curious to hear your thoughts. 



Take care,  

Luca

Happy 4th of July


 

The Story of the Fourth of July

The Declaration of Independence
We celebrate American Independence Day on the Fourth of July every year. We think of July 4, 1776, as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation.
But July 4, 1776 wasn't the day that the Continental Congress decided to declare independence (they did that on July 2, 1776).
It wasn’t the day we started the American Revolution either (that had happened back in April 1775).
And it wasn't the day Thomas Jefferson wrote the first draft of the Declaration of Independence (that was in June 1776). Or the date on which the Declaration was delivered to Great Britain (that didn't happen until November 1776). Or the date it was signed (that was August 2, 1776).


So what did happen on July 4, 1776?
The Continental Congress approved the final wording of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. They'd been working on it for a couple of days after the draft was submitted on July 2nd and finally agreed on all of the edits and changes.
July 4, 1776, became the date that was included on the Declaration of Independence, and the fancy handwritten copy that was signed in August (the copy now displayed at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.) It’s also the date that was printed on the Dunlap Broadsides, the original printed copies of the Declaration that were circulated throughout the new nation. So when people thought of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776 was the date they remembered.
In contrast, we celebrate Constitution Day on September 17th of each year, the anniversary of the date the Constitution was signed, not the anniversary of the date it was approved. If we’d followed this same approach for the Declaration of Independence we’d being celebrating Independence Day on August 2nd of each year, the day the Declaration of Independence was signed!


How did the Fourth of July become a national holiday?
For the first 15 or 20 years after the Declaration was written, people didn’t celebrate it much on any date. It was too new and too much else was happening in the young nation. By the 1790s, a time of bitter partisan conflicts, the Declaration had become controversial. One party, the Democratic-Republicans, admired Jefferson and the Declaration. But the other party, the Federalists, thought the Declaration was too French and too anti-British, which went against their current policies.
By 1817, John Adams complained in a letter that America seemed uninterested in its past. But that would soon change.
After the War of 1812, the Federalist party began to come apart and the new parties of the 1820s and 1830s all considered themselves inheritors of Jefferson and the Democratic-Republicans. Printed copies of the Declaration began to circulate again, all with the date July 4, 1776, listed at the top. The deaths of Thomas Jefferson and John Adams on July 4, 1826, may even have helped to promote the idea of July 4 as an important date to be celebrated.
Celebrations of the Fourth of July became more common as the years went on and in 1870, almost a hundred years after the Declaration was written, Congress first declared July 4 to be a national holiday as part of a bill to officially recognize several holidays, including Christmas. Further legislation about national holidays, including July 4, was passed in 1939 and 1941.

Betty MacDonald and new Betty MacDonald fan club project




Betty MacDonald fan club fans,

i'm writing a Betty MacDonald fan club newsletter story about Betty MacDonald's guests.

After enjoying the Betty MacDonald fan club events it would be a good idea to make a list about Betty MacDonald Fan Club members, who have open houses.

I have an open house. 


Betty MacDonald fan club members are always welcome. 

I'd be delighted.

I'm sitting in my garden under very old cherry trees and listening to Wolfgang Hampel's funny Betty MacDonald interviews.


Wolfgang Hampel and Betty MacDonald's family and friends had a very good time. 

So we have when we listening to Wolfgang Hampel's Betty MacDonald treasures. 

I love it. 

It's typical Bard magic. 


I'm a huge fan of Betty MacDonald fan club honor member Perry Woodfin.

His Betty MacDonald poem is outstanding.  


I'll have breakfast at the  bookstore with Brad  and Nick.
 
Take care,
 
Torben

Betty MacDonald and Betty MacDonald fan club movie team

 [BBEggFFF.egg_and_iposter-ol.jpg]

Betty MacDonald fan club fans,

there is a new Betty MacDonald fan club movie research team.

If you'd like to join send us a mail, please. 

Betty MacDonald Fan Club Royal Wedding Event Stockholm DVD will be available in a few days.


I agree with Paula,  dearest Pieter you have to be a bit patient but the DVD will be a wonderful one.

Paula, i've reread  Betty MacDonald's The Egg and I some days ago and I know what you are talking about.

Poor Betty. First husband Bob seemed to be very strict.

I adore this picture you posted on Betty MacDonald fan club blog yesterday. 



As Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle - and Betty MacDonald fan club book cover contest is finished we'll have a new one during this month, the Betty MacDonald fan club letter contest.
 
You'll get more info in the next days.

Updated Betty MacDonald biography by Betty MacDonald fan club founder  Wolfgang Hampel  will be as fascinating as Wolfgang Hampel's brilliant Betty MacDonald interviews and his great satirical poems. 
 
I hope to find new ones in Betty MacDonald fan club newsletter July.

My favourite Betty MacDonald fan club interview by Wolfgang Hampel is this wonderful one with Betty MacDonald's unique sister Alison Bard Burnett and very witty niece Alison Beck. 
 
It's such a golden Betty MacDonald fan club treasure.
 
We will be able to read many fascinating info on Betty MacDonald and her brilliant sisters Mary Bard Jensen, Alison Bard Burnett and her son - Betty MacDonald fan club honor member Darsie Beck. 
 
Diana Rigg as Arlena Marshall in Evil under the sun is outstanding but Peter Ustinov, Maggie Smith and the other actors are excellent too.
  
Paula, you don't have to be sad because you couldn't find the Soundtrack CD. 
 
I've got one in reserve for you. 
 
Cole Porter's music perfecty fits to the story.
 
It's a great Soundtrack. You'll love it!

Betty MacDonald fan club honor member Mr. Tigerli is heart and soul of Betty MacDonald fan club.
 
Does anybody know where Emmertsgrund is?

I've never heard of it.

I'd do everything for Mr. Tigerli.
 
Some of the ESC 2015 results are really a shame. There is a need to change this unfair voting system because several countries - not only the Big 5 countries might leave the contest. 
 
Mr. Tigerli it's your turn now! 
 

Don't miss breakfast at the  bookstore with Brad  and Nick.
 
I'm one of their devoted fans.
 
Guys keep up your great work! 
 
We do love you!  
 
Enjoy your day,

Martine

Diana Rigg and Maggie Smith are excellent.
 
I like the music by Cole Porter very much.
