Sorry about the cheesy title…hope you can forgive me.
I wanted to grab the attention of my US friends and wish them a Happy Independence Day…celebrating their freedom from the British (oh how some of my Scottish friends would love to celebrate something similar, substituting British with English!)
Independent or not, there has always been a close bond between the countries… and one that, on a personal level for me, has gotten even closer through Social Media.
So no more of this…
‘Two Nations Separated By a Common Language’
… I can honestly say that after attending HREvolution in May, and also speaking to many of my US Twitter buddies at TruLondon, not to mention the ongoing chat through Twitter, Facebook and many blogs and webchats, then for the Anglo-American HR & Recruiting community it is definitely a case of…
‘Two Nations United By Common Concerns and Issues’.
So to everyone across the Atlantic….Hope You Have a Happy, Relaxing, Enjoyable, Fun-Filled Day with Friends and Family…and I look forward to chatting and debating with you all again soon!
Damn! I may even get to stay awake long enough for HR Happy Hour one of these days!…

I still think the USA should apply to be part of the Commonwealth.
Happy Birthday all the same.
Very nice! I know you can make it to HR Happy Hour – just take a strategic nap from 8PM to 11PM some night!
Mervyn, what a nice post. Thank you for being such a great friend. It is great that as time passed, the two countries were able to form a bond again. I’m glad we met through social media and have had the opportunity to meet several times in person. Until next time….
Thanks Mervyn. Our friendship means the world to me, and you are a very special person.
