Happy birthday to all you Americans out there. I hope everyone hade a safe and enjoyable 4th. My family had a huge party and we had a bunch of friends and some of my coworkers over. Ended the evening with fireworks of course. And we managed to keep all of them out of the crowd this year. Woot woot! (Although I hear it is funny to see them run. I don't want to see what happens if they can't run fast enough though. I'll stick with them being high in the air when they go off.)
Informal first aid, plus spotting and FOD retrieval for a local professional fireworks operator two nights in a row. Nothing like finding embers on your head and having a stiff neck from watching fireworks over your head for a quarter hour. Despite one malfunx finale box (a tube failed laterally and the remainder sort of made a big ground blossom), safety was observed and everyone had a good time.
I keep expecting to see Jamie Heineman and Adam Savage walk up...that's when I'm walking back further.
