INDEPENDENCEDAY.JPG
140 viewsOn the fourth of July, Americans all over the world celebrate Independence Day - the historic day, in 1776, when the USA gained independence from Great Britain. Each year, this most American of holidays is marked with parades, concerts, firework displays, picnics and the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner and stirring patriotic marches by John Philip de Sousa.
If you believe in coincidences, here's an amazing one. Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, two of the signatories of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia in 1776, both went on to become President of the United States and then both died on 4th July 1826 - exactly 50 years after the adoption of the American Declaration of Independence.
Naturally, the nation's capital, Washington, is one of the places to be on Independence Day, the Capitol and the Monument forming a spectacular backdrop to the day's festivities. Although America's First Pandas are, of course, Chinese citizens, they always celebrate their adoptive country's special day and where better than watching the firework display in front of the Capitol!

TIANTIANBIRTHDAY.JPG
139 viewsTian Tian, Edinburgh’s female panda, celebrates her tenth birthday on 24th August. Born at the Bifengxia Panda Base in 2003, she’s a mere 10 days younger than her rejected pandamour, Yang Guang. There’s actually a bit of confusion about her name because, according to Edinburgh Zoo, Tian Tian means ‘Sweetie’, whereas according to Washington’s National Zoo, whose male panda is also called Tian Tian, it means ‘more and more’ ie more and more bamboo! I was at the zoo to wish Tian Tian happy birthday but disappointingly, though understandably, she preferred to stay out of sight and, according to the panda guide, would be given her birthday present in private. The ultimate present would, of course, have been a baby panda which isn’t as improbable as it sounds as 24th August had been mentioned as the date when the cub watch will start in earnest at Edinburgh Zoo.
