It's the 4th of July weekend, so it must be time to check out some cool websites (hey, other than watch fireworks and eat hot dogs, it's not like you were planning to do anything else this long weekend, right?). From the History Channel, a special Fourth of July site  compiles a bunch of interesting links. Did you know, for instance, that the estimated amount of hot dogs eaten by Americans on the Fourth of July is 150 million? Whoa! And from the Wikipedia, other things that have happened on July 4  in history. And from the National Archives, check out the document that started it all , and even add your name to the Declaration of Independence !
Of course, this weekend also marks the start of the Tour de France (and without the French we might not have won the Revolutionary War, so this is sort of relevant to the whole Fourth of July thing). The race starts July 2. A couple of sites to monitor the action as Lance Armstrong goes for number seven: Outside magazine offers great online coverage . And the official site  is very slick (and multi-lingual). Here in the U.S., Outdoor Life Network will be providing the blow-by-blow coverage, and they have a website  to accompany the TV action.
Happy Fourth of July, everybody! Now get out there and eat some hot dogs!
