Happy Fourth, on the Fourteenth

Ever wonder what would happen if you used a language-translation program to translate a phrase back and forth between English and five other languages? Well, someone did, and they came up with this really fun site where you can play with language to your heart's content. Here's mine, in special tribute to the fourth of July holiday:

Can the word of the OH consider it of the first light of the shovel,
of which what many we it hailed ferocious this with the buttock to the
lustrum of the dawn?

Can you guess what that phrase originally said? While you're thinking about it, here are the pictures of our July 4th festivities that I've long promised myself I would post:

First thing in the morning on the 4th, James, Allison, Anthony, Baby George, and Big George, along with Sterling and his wife, ran the 5k. I was doing the all important job of Photographing.

Next, we watched the parade:

Here's Max showing his patriotism by eating the flag.
Mom and Anthony cheesing for the camera. And sporting very patriotic colors, I might add.
Dad and James. Come on, everyone. You love that hat.
Later that night, after a delicious BBQ at James's Uncle Greg and Aunt Mary's house, we lit fireworks at Diane and Jeff's.

And, in closing:

The collapse assured that the test and of the system to ignite in the
thing and the aeronautics, that one that is our place of the symbol,
he had always red the material rocket here he with the use at night
what collapse of the force.

How do you find these websites? I will play with it and get back to you. And your prize...will be so awesome once I think of what it is. I'm thinking we can go out for ice cream or something b/c the party reignited my sweet tooth.

Somebody has been Stumbling again. ;) I've seen that site. Austin found it stumbling the other day. It's pretty funny. And of course I recognize the original words. I won't say in case people are still trying to guess.

The pics look like you had a fun Fourth. That's really cool that James and family participated in the 5K. I've always wanted to do that.

I guess I'm on a Simpsons kick:

It's not easy to juggle a pregnant wife and a troubled child, but somehow I managed to fit in eight hours of TV a day.
