In my new hometown, the President, has decreed a 4 day weekend, since Congress had not gotten around to it, she just went ahead and made a Decree and that is that.
If her name were Picard, she would have said " Make it so" ... and that would have been that.
So now, where there was a weekend, then a work day then a Bicentennial Holiday, she has given the people 4 days of partying, celebrating and plenty of opportunities to make noise and stay up all night.
I am not sure how I feel about all that , since I sometimes get to listen to that "stay up and make noise all night" bit , all night.
But I am happy for the people here who work long and hard days and deserve all the fun they can get.
But .... IF I were Queen .. Presidenta ... or Whatever ...
* I would decree shorter work days and more good Chocolate, even if it is imported.
* I would decree that more French and Italian chefs be allowed to come here and teach .
* I would decree that It Is Now Alright If they import spices, foods and goods from Europe and the United States.
There is more but we can talk about that later.
