    we randomly stopped on our way back from a wedding where there were a bunch of people in a parking lot in Lewisville. We had a pretty good view of some NICE fireworks. Really impressive, especially because it was so random.

    essjaytee you missed 4 fireworks displays in a 1 mile radius on Friday night from 9-10.30. The ballpark's were the best though. Sitting so close to them that they would make your heart skip a beat.

    we had a party at my house Friday night. Usually my town has a nice fireworks show at the park down the street that can be seen from my yard but not this year for some reason. So I went to Big Zack's Discount Fireworks and plunked down about $70. got the two stage mortors and some big-arsed sparklers for the kids.

    For those of you doing your own fireworks, don't screw around with the rockets no matter how big they are. Get the mortors... with the exception of the altitude, hard to tell them apart from the big-time professional jobbies.

    on a side note, I think we shortened the life of the old lady that lives across the street from us.. :worried:

    no pictures, I was too drunk to operate something like a digital camera.... only the fireworks. :D

    heheh.. Ideal,

    I nearly cut the life of the local Manweb (old electricity board) building short on fireworks night before. I got some old flares (red shiny things not old generation clothing) and fired one off, it veered over and just about missed the roof of the Manweb building and burnt in the carpark.... my brother was the best..

    "they'll never know it was us..." it was at this point I decided it would be best to point out the red smoke trail leading from our balcony right over to Manweb... d'oh! :duh:

    "Big Zack's Discount Fireworks"

    Hehehehe. I love these American shop names. Nobody over here sounds as friendly as "Big Zack".

    I live in the south where fireworks, tanktops, tractors, and outlet towels are a birthright

    Actually yeah, we have fireworks the first weekend of July every year.

    At Warwick castle they do a massive display two nights in a row with The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra playing and such in the castle's grounds too. Being local you get a free view from pretty much anywhere in the town. Great stuff. I'm gonna have to actually pay to go in one year cause it looks pretty mad http://www.warwick-castle.co.uk/events/special_ticketed_events.asp

    particularly in my area of the US, I could buy 6-7 of virtually any type of gun if I wanted... used to own two before moving to my current place. It's a tradition that I'm not to proud of around her to squeeze off a few rounds into the air at New Year's. Alcohol and random falling .357slugs is an irresponsible combo IMO.
