Happy Independence Day everyone!

Nerd out-

On July 4, 1826, at the age of 90, John Adams lay on his deathbed while the country celebrated Independence Day. His last words were “Thomas Jefferson still survives” (after receiving a letter from his old friend). He was mistaken: Jefferson had died five hours earlier at Monticello at the age of 82. Both died July 4th exactly 50 years to the day of the signing of the declaration of Independence. And that’s why we make blueberry pie every year. Yup.
