NEW YORK - FEBRUARY 17: Revolutionary War re-enactors fire muskets outside McSorley's Old Ale House as it celebrates its 152nd anniversary February 17, 2006 in New York City. The legendary bar on East 7th Street claims to be the city's oldest. The East Village institution did not admit women until 1970 and only serves two beers- McSorley's Light and McSorley's Dark. Famous Americans said to have visited McSorley's include Abe Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Boss Tweed and Woody Guthrie. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)

I’m not a recreational marijuana user…..

On this day in 1775, British and American soldiers exchanged fire in Lexington and Concord. This historic battle began the American Revolution, creating the famous ride of Paul Revere.

It was not 1775, but while visiting the historic site called the North Bridge in Concord, I could have sworn I saw around TEN DUCKS, in row, facing the water standing still as if they were in a military posture at attention. My wife Heidi was there.

Of ALL of the sites we have pictures for, NO DUCKS.

This bridge was restored eight different times since 1775, but the feeling of awe is still present.

Take a look at what Ralph Waldo Emerson called The Shot Heard Around The World.
