That's what I miss about San Diego.. who cares about a fireworks ban when you can watch the Sheriff's Dept. blow up tons and tons of confiscated fireworks in a display to promote fireworks safety.

I hate fireworks. I hate them! Especially the ones that only make noise. Why the hell waste good money on making noise when you have a cupboard full of pots & pans? Seen one firework show you seen 'em all. I've seen plenty and I hate them. I dread the noisy next few days. Ugh. And the poor animals! The birds, squirrels, raccoons, possums, cats, dogs, it really freaks them out. Like living in Bhagdad for a freaking week. Stupid tradition.


When we do our display,I see no adverse reactions from the animals. Stupid tradition that countless men and women have died for,so that we can celebrate it. Take your meds and lock yourself in the house for the week.



See no adverse reactions to the few animals? It's a known fact many animals are scared out of their minds during this time. Maybe you should take a poll and get back to me since you seem to be clueless. Or maybe your animals are deaf. Last night some idiot set off an M80 in the neighborhood. What a lovely sound that was! Hope their eardrums are still ringing. IDIOTS. July 5th we'll read about all the fingers and hands blown off. MORE IDIOTS.


I don't deal in m-80's..I help shoot and organize a $50,000 display.Please post some data to back up your claims. Our shooting area is around 1 mile from a large farm,I'll be sure to have someone watch the cattles' reaction during our shoot.

Well Mr. PRINCE, you asked for support to my claim, which I promptly provided, now you're backpeddaling and wish to read something more scientific as 8,640,000 articles aren't good enuf. Look it up yourself. or you can go put out some oven fires or something.

Mrm. I heard something about a ban. I heard they were going to do something at some country club in Cheyenne Meadows. I'd go, but I hate those roundabouts in that area. Haven't been up that way much either except to go to the zoo twice.

I wonder if they're doing anything on Pikes Peak.. they had a decent display on New Years that we could seem from our place.

Then yesterday afternoon 4" off rain and 6" of small hail (melted quickly for 10" in less than 2 hours) caused a lot of erosional damage to the driveways and roads. An amateur roadgrader operator had wiped out two critical crossdrains, which filled my driveway culvert with granite gravel, and made the street a river. I'll be on the loader/backhoe tractor today and probably on Independence Day, too. A reminder that Freedom isn't free, and Independence takes work, and more work.


We didn't get a whole lot of rain! Lots of thunder and lightning though.

Sucks about the culvert.. and amen to the freedom isn't free.
