        Hi Members,

        With July 4th just around the corner....comes the sparkle and bang that lights up the nite sky. I love to watch the fireworks on the 4th! Here in Illinois fireworks are limited. My state has banned most of them. Available are sparklers, smoke bombs and snakes.

        Most people will travel to Indiana to get fireworks where it is legal and bring them back. It's amazing that although its illegal everyone and their cousin has fireworks on this day. In our neighborhood we are known particulary on our block for HUGE firework displays. The local police will drive by...kinda pretend they are mad..and roll right by.

        The only thing i really dislike about the fireworks is how scared my dogs get....im talking petrified. It is one of the reason i stay home on that day. I dont think they should be banned...its like drinkin and driving ....have a designated driver...in this case a designated igniter!

        My plans are to have a big party and have lots of fireworks....food...and of course liquor baby!!!!

        Tell us about your plans on July 4th and whether you think fireworks should be legal or not.

        Have a safe happy holiday weekend!

        Im thinking of having a bon-fire out in the country with friends. I'm not much of a drinker but do enjoy a few on this holiday. It's Summer, its warm, and I'm with friends.
        I enjoy fireworks and I do think they ought to be legal to adults. Here in Michigan you are forced to buy pretty cheesy fireworks from the side of the road or in the local Walmart, and the cost is not worth the little enjoyment you get out of them.  Yet, I also know, if you really look, and drop your name in the right places, you can find the "illegal" ones and buy them to enjoy at home.
              Here in our town they put on a pretty good fireworks display for anyone who is interested in taking on the more traditional family setting with hotdogs, and pop.
            Whatever you all do this holiday,  my LCB family,  I wish you the very best.  Have fun and be safe.                                            PMM2008

        Sounds like a nice time PMM...I remember when fireworks were so easy to get, we got a list from the guy at work, he had EVERYTHING!!  And it was great...I remember my dad throwing barrel bombs off the front stairs..man those were LOUD..loved it, now we are lucky to get firecrackers.
