Good Morning Gentle Readers,
This is kind of a cool take off on this, which we link to every year. Here in the fire prone west, that's about as good as it gets. Sort of. Although home fireworks are completely illegal in this county, there will be a bunch of well staged fireworks displays across the southland tonight including the show over Lake Elsinore where we once had front row seats at the Little Blue House by The Lake.
Saw a big sign on PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) at the Zooport Beach city limits proclaiming that public consumption of alcohol or fireworks would land you in jail. Good God Man! How dare you celebrate your freedom with a beer and then launch a bottle rocket from the empty bottle.
For the record, Newport Beach has more plastic people than most cities. If you look carefully at the backside of many of those bikini clad lovelies you'll see where the factory stamped Mattell on their butts. Oh, there'll be emails on that one.
