    Default It's quiet here for the 4th!

    But I'm having a good day. Opened a packet of olives and found not only a
    high proportion of lupini beans in there but also a bit of a green bean.

    My Boston Baked Beans seem on the right track now that I have cooked down
    the liquid. I also turned the crock up to high and left the lid off just
    while I took a shower. I know you aren't really supposed to do that but it
    did seem to evaporate the last bit of liquid that I couldn't fish out of
    there.

    Part of a green bean? You lucky dog. I thought those were extinct!

    Well it's not often that you find those in your olives! I found a bigger
    piece in the last bag. Green beans are one of my favorite foods so it was a
    nice surprise!

    I heard loud booms all over here this evening. I don't really get what is
    so exciting about loud noises, and how much do people pay for these things?
    And how many people will be at the emergency room tonight because of them.

    Some people are easily pleased.

    Me, I'd prefer not to pay olive prices for beans.

    Not many fireworks here at all but a few. I think people just can't afford
    them.

    Tons where I'm at. A really nice display over the lake that the city put on,
    and really nice private fireworks too. I love fireworks, and the smell
    afterwards.

    You couldn't prove it at my house tonight. Usually they are off in
    the distance but this year a couple of them seemed to practically be
    in my backyard. I still hear them going off, but they are at the
    distance I expect them to be and some of those booms are m80's.

    It's loud now! We saw quite a show. I only bought 5 this year. One had no
    wick. At least it was the $1.99 one. Mostly we just watch the neighbor's
    because they seem to be wealthy and can afford many of those $50 and up
    ones.

    It's just so coooold here. They say warm weather is coming but I'll believe
    it when I feel it. We just got too cold and had to come in. Plus all of
    the ones closest to us have stopped. But we can still hear them all around.

    July 4 and New Year's Eve would be the ideal times
    to murder somebody. A gunshot wouldn't be suspicious.

    It got pretty loud around here last night too. It was so loud a
    neighbor came home to find that the dog had panicked and jumped though
    a window (yes, there was blood) - it hasn't been found yet AFAIK.

    There were more fireworks here last night. Caught me off guard and I
    thought neighbors were setting them off. I guess some places canceled
    due to power outages and rescheduled for last night.

    Last night a local community had their fireworks, and others this weekend.

    Last evening, I heard the loudest. Lightning struck a tree in my backyard.
    Minutes earlier,5-10 , I made wish I could see lightning hit a tree, and I
    included, not mine. I didn't get to see the lightning, and it hit mine.
    Large pine, gonna cost me. Split down the middle, but still standing.

    Miss the really big booms of the 60's. They don't use them anymore at
    events. They shook the ground.

    Greg
