8:10: The Fourth of July Celebration Entertainment and Fireworks at the White House
White House Live * CBS
Isn’t she lovely and he handsome? What a couple.
Macy’s 4th celebration on NBC announced a “special guest appearance by President Obama”, which I assume is a taped message.
Working the night shift again, Layla?
Thanks LDS. No my night shifts start again tomorrow! So, I can enjoy my evening with you nice people…
Okay. Let the fun begin!
Sleep will come when it comes……(Wed., that is)
Congrats Layla on 1st
They are both so stunning.
Yes they are, ut.
Mubarack to Morsi: So, what are you in for?— (@LOLGOP) July 03, 2013
:D :D :D
Congratulations Ms. Chipsticks on today’s milestone and millions more. :grin: This is from a letter George Washington wrote to the Roman Catholicks. They must have written him a congratulations letter on becoming our First President. Someone posted the link early today. Proud to be a Leberal!
As mankind become more liberal they will be more apt to allow that all those who conduct themselves as worthy members of the community are equally entitled to the protection of civil government. I hope ever to see America among the foremost nations in examples of justice and liberality.
Ok folks where are the fireworks???? The White House feed says “beginning shortly”…
The sun is still high in the sky here in Los Angeles and it’s 86 degrees outside
I’m almost out of Cheesy Puffs!!!
The concert is now underway – Barry Manillow is singing. After the concert the fireworks will start :)
Check your local PBS listing for “A Capitol Fourth” to see the concert. They will re-air it at 10PM ET
ooops…I’m watching a different concert from the WH Concert – I guess they’re going on at the same time…
Here you go..
Um…thanks Layla, but I’ll pass :-)
Desert blush——-that’s the color of Obama’s shirt. I swear. That’s a wrap on the Big Color Dispute.
:lol: Desert blush? I’m taking your word for it Dotster!
It’s not desert blush. It’s salmon. Just talked to someone who works in fashion and she said it’s salmon.
Huh, what do fashion people know? I still insist it’s Red Devil-ish.
In your dreams. Leave. NOW!
UT, I agree with you.
Who creates these colors anyway? Never seen a “desert blush”.
‘Never seen a “desert blush”.
No kidding, LDS, that was EXACTLY my reaction as soon as I read Dotster’s comment AND before I saw yours. ;)
First ‘blush’ of sunrise, of course!
Okay. I can picture that, though not in a pinkish shade, more likely in a yellowish-orangey colour. :grin:
BREAKING IIII: @sonamie says "yellowish-orangey" @NerdyWonka @GoodGirlRoxy @AVD911 @Our4thEstate— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) July 05, 2013
Deserts do not blush……just hot!
You know LDS, I think we might have found the issue that will divide us all – desert blush, pink, salmon, apricot? I sense a war coming on!
Ms. Chips, it’s done in the name of LOVE.
If that’s all we got that will divide us, I say, the color is in the eye of the beholder.
So it is, desertblushpinksalmonapricot.
Now, that settles that!
(and anything in between)
Verdict —-> desertblushpinksalmonapricot.
Let there be no more discussion, thank you LDS!!!
deblinkmoncot for short.
Streaming has started
Aaah, there’s people and music on now!
Woohooo…it’s FUN at the white house. I remember when they had The Killers. Good times.
Who is that singing now?
I enjoyed when Train performed
President Obama made his big appearance at Macy’s 4th celebration. He danced and sang and told jokes—-hope you didn’t miss it!
Can’t wait to see POTUS grooving
people getting shirty about the shirt. Guess the kenyan muslin couldn’t leave it alone.
Desert blush. :)
(he should have stuck with the navy and saved us all this distress)
I agree Dotster, IMPEACH!!! :lol:
OMG Chips!!!!! Don’t say PEACH!
Cher looks just like she did 40 years ago. I remember when I first heard “I Got You Babe”, running immediately to the record store on Division St. in Chgo to buy it—played it millions of times—that little 45. (mr. dotster was mean and said ‘don’t put a needle in her face, it might pop)
Mr dotster is still alive and well…
Well he has a point…
Well, the ribs are perfect as well as the chicken. Blood Orange mojitos…scrumtious! Just wish I could find some hot to die Louisiana hot links in New Mexico! A Capitol Fourth starts in a half hour and we’re watching Independence Day in the meantime. Happy, relaxed 4th. Hope everyone’s was great.
You will enjoy the Capital Fourth. The “Motown” performance was spectacular! Barry Manilow was good too :)
Ooohh! Motown! Can’t wait!
Already 10,000 over 20 mil hits ??? Daymn. I gotta leave this place.
All from Greenland I’d say, Amk, we’re huuuuge there now!
Must be your green-ish and ir-ish hair.
(just trying to start another colorful war)
amk, you’re rooted here just like the rest of us are :lol:
If that was a women’s shirt it would be “dusty rose”.
I guess they have that color description for mens shirts too.
OK, you win. I’m willing to give up my desert blush. It IS dusty rose. For real. That’s it. End of discussion. All done. Forever and ever, amen.
Wait. What about Pesky Pink?
Team Salmon right here! :cool:
Salmon. Not dusty rose or desert blush (what the heck is desert blush?!) S-A-L-M-O-N.
Is someone talking about POTUS shirt? If so,Why? I see nothing wrong with the shirt.
Ah flippin’ heck Forus, don’t add ANOTHER shade in to the heated debate!!!!! :lol:
I bet if you asked POTUS what color his shirt is, he’d say “red”……I know my husband would. I bet he chose that shirt for the red, white and blue of July 4th. Notice she’s in blue and white.
We’re getting far too esoteric for a man’s color choice…..no offense to the male fashionistos on this blog, but “red” covers a multitude of shades in male eyes.
This band is quite good. I must confess, I am not aware of them.
They are called FUN
Thanks Melissa. I am going to listen to them and get a flavor of their music. They were either on SNL or on Stephen Colbert……?
I remember them being on SNL and the guitarist in the green shirt is the boyfriend of the actress Lena Dunham
Seriously did it just get dark now?
When does the real music start?
Yummiest. . .
Happy Birthday to US & Malia Obama! ☺😔🇺🇸 http://t.co/43vCd04p3l— CarolMae (@CarolMaeWY) July 05, 2013

The color is ‘Clay’ and it’s from Nordstrom
You folk are totally entertaining :D :D :D
Nope. Not clay. @AVD911 showed us the clothing site where PBO says he normally shops. It’s salmon and the shirt retails for about $20.
That’s a Nordstrom shirt UT :D :D :D :D
No it’s not. It looks nothing like clay. That’s salmon. I’ve talked to someone who works in fashion and she called it as salmon. Nordstrom is selling a different shirt.
But people often work in fashion because they’re not very smart ……… /runs
Says the person who didn’t know how to post simple tweets on her own blog.
The clay has a purplish base and that’s not what Pres. Obama was wearing.
UT …. you say peach and I say clay …. :D :D :D :D
Salmon. Not peach. Not clay. Salmon. :D
This is sooooooo much fun and a great way to drive page hits!!!! You clever young lady you, Ms Chips :)
No, no Bob, they’re all beating each other up on Twitter over PinkSalmonCoralClayGate, prayin’ they don’t come here, pending will be overloaded.
You’re leading the charge you sneaky Red Devil.
She sure is UT (and you’re contributing mightily to that charge to 21 Billion hits!!!) :D :D :D :D :D
You STARTED this war Chipsticks!!!!
Jeeeeez! Once more:
I agree. It definitely looks purple – Lavender…
more like an off shade of yellow, me thinks ….. way off ….. as in clay …. :D :D :D :D :D
Oh no—-now you jump in with clay? Someone call the White House.
Bob!!! You fashion diva you!!!!

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D
Nope. Clay is what’s on the ground at the French Open. That’s just way off base.
Clay Doc? Come on. Clay is like the French Tennis Court…….. :lol:
That’s it, I agree with Bob!
Bobfr, you are the LAST person I expected to weigh in on this madness. Just sit back and enjoy the entertainment :D
Simply couldn’t resist, Gail :D :D :D :D
Don’t go into the light CarrieAnn…
:D :D :D :D
Just about time for the fireworks, isn’t it.
This is the second time this evening that my Firefox browser has crashed and had to be restarted. What’s with that? Never happened to me before, so who knows how much longer I’ll be floating along in the village. Is this a sign my laptop is aging?
VC, be sure you have the most recent version of Firefox and then go to Preferences and clear all cookies (button to view cookies and do so is on the ‘privacy’ tab) and then clear cached web content (button to do so is on the ‘advanced’ tab). Then, reboot your laptop. If it happens again then you may soon need to purchase a new laptop once you’ve had someone check it for you.
Will try that when I’m signing off, thank you, Bfr. (Bfr) Don’t want to jeopardize things as it’s working right now. (Of course, even as I plan to try that I remember the last time – a couple weeks ago – when I fixed things and ended up having to uninstall Firefox for a week. Uninstalling was my superior solution. I figured if I ignored Firefox for a whole week it would be eager to be reinstalled and would thus comport itself in a top notch manner.)
Salmon, pink, amaranth, whatever. All I know is that I have the same colored shirt as PBO, so I WIN!
Dood, you don’t have to always obey your wife, you know ?
Oh please, the missus asks me for color advice.
G&T tough talk. Yeah, I do that too.
I shudder to think of what the bills will be like once missus starts buying new clothing.
A millionaire was asked the secret behind his success.
“My wife” said the millionaire.
“In what way did she contribute to your wealth, sir”.
“When I married her, I was a billionaire”, said he.
Jaysus, we have to win the lottery.
:lol: But what COLOR do you call it, check the damn label!!!
I did! It doesn’t say! But it goes smashingly with my complexion.
Check again LL, this is ****urgent****
This will be one of those unanswered questions, I fear.
I’m about to choke on my Cheesy Puffs! STOPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!
Salmon, salmon, salmon!
Neil Diamond can’t sing any more. But people don’t care. I love him and all his songs.
Ok … I am (or at least used to be) a HUGE ND fan … and I say he really never could sing that well (compared to other singers especially) BUT (and this is a BIG BUT … no one can sing a Neil Diamond song like ND. They can cover them to their heart’s content, but no one sings a Neil Diamond song as well as Neil does. I am …. I said.
So far: Dusty Rose, Coral, Salmon, Apricot, Peach, Pink, Clay & Desert Blush, most divisive debate since 08 primaries http://t.co/5t2OtSVdRl— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) July 05, 2013
That’s right Chipsticks – send it out to the masses – let them have their say too!
Greenwald will be doing a “shirt color” special interview on Hayes tomorrow….
:lol: He probably will too, Hopefruit! He might say it was Code Pink for SUPPRESSION!
Indeed. I can just see chuck todd taking up the entire hour tomorrow morning with Shirtgate…
BREAKING V!: Roberta in MN says "muted red".— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) July 05, 2013
Yikes, not so sure about this band. Maybe it’s just this one song…
You can’t always get what you want…….. ;) It looks like FUN knows about the Color/Colour debate at TOD…….The Fun continues…….. :)
Let Darrell Issa investigate what color the shirt is?
Isn’t it time for the fireworks?
Annibelle, this is the fireworks! All this talk about POB’s shirt color….
Truly hope @FLOTUS or someone on her staff or PBO’s is lurking and sharing while laughing their butts off …. we all know PBO wore that shirt to needle the #NEWSTAINERS fully expecting Ms Greenspan to spend an hour on the ‘pink (or whatever) shirt scandal’ tomorrow …. :D :D :D :D :D
Tonight we are young, so we set the world on fire>>> I love that song
Okay, my guests better get here soon. A) I’m hungry, and they have the food. B) I have alcoholic mixology to perpetrate.
PBO’s shirt color is Hospital Pink. Case is now officially closed. Anyone who tries to re-open the case gets to spend a weekend with Snowden & GG on yacht in a deserted island!
Well…will the island be in shark infested waters..and Salmon!
There are the FIREWORKS!!!!! OOOOOooh!!!
I have another 3 hours before darkness out here
So, I live beneath the flight path, so no official fireworks. My neighbors, however, don’t give a shit. I get the best fireworks show just sitting in my back yard.
I know LL! And I have to get up at 5:30 in the morning to go to work. I probably won’t have a very restful night tonight with the “hood” fireworks LOL!!!!
PBO just sent a text saying to enjoy the damn fireworks and stop worrying about his shirt color, and that it’s none of our business.
Okay Mr. President. I never was wondering about your shirt color. I did enjoy the fireworks.
Well then let’s ask FLOTUS, she will tell us!
Well, at least he didn’t tell us to put down the cocktails!
It was a beautiful fireworks display over the WH…..and not a bad one here on TOD either :lol:
Sweet Red Georgia Clay.
dotster3 – I know Georgia clay – and that ain’t it – sorry :shock:
Pretty close though, right? Or has my memory failed me? I only know sweet red Georgia clay from driving thru the state and entertaining mr. dotster by pointing it out and saying “sweet red Georgia clay” multiple times.
Anyhoo—-worth a try.
How ’bout Cantaloupe?
Thank you neighbor. It is sooooo not Georgia Red Clay. I’ve scooped so much of that off my clothes, I know it well.

FLOTUS is smiling underneath her nose – thinking, “well for once the focus is not on what I’M wearing…Barack honey, that’s your problem to deal with…”
Good grief woman – you want to crash the internez????
Ms. Chips you are totally going to end up in the Situation Room before the night is over.
Friendships are dying on Twitter, LDS – and after Bob’s grenade, this —>
@TheObamaDiary @NerdyWonka #POTUS shirt color is "New York Pink" Check palette here –> #D37978 chir.ag/projects/name-…— zizi2 (@zizii2) July 05, 2013
I loved watching the fireworks on my biggish computer screen in the dark room! Great display! I always used to go to the fireworks in Detroit, I think the third biggest display in the country! However I hate the music they played! Have I used enough ! yet ?! I love to hear the pops and bangs and just looking at the fireworks is wonderful – no distractions! However when they played the Sousa piece at the end, FANTASTIC!!!
I was in DC for the 4th in 1970 on a field semester from college. We went down to the Washington Monument – the Beach Boys were supposed to be performing so it was a pretty young crowd. Then we found out they had cancelled the Beach Boys – too radical and hippy – and had Bob Hope instead. Naturally, the natives got a little restless and upset and…out comes the tear gas!! We decided to leave at that point. The Greek girl, daughter of a Greek Embassy official, was very..um..impressed with they way we celebrated the holiday!
Yea for guns! We need more guns! Freedumb. And the 4th of July weekend is just beginning.
There is a reason we don't kill our kids. Grand kids. The mutts should be grateful and better make some for us.— (@amk4obama) July 05, 2013
