Celebrating Freedom

Celebrating Freedom by Creativity+ Timothy K

Kate and I of course returned to the scene of the crime, and later watched the fireworks aboard Camp LejeuneLee Ann Womack performed, and she was lovely.  I’m not a big fan of country music, but I recognized one or two of her songs.

I was a little bummed that they didn’t have a Marine Corps band this year.  I love hearing the band play the 1812 Overture, with the cannons firing at the end with the music just as the fireworks start.  The fact that Tchaikovsky was not an American bothers me not a whit, just so y’know.  Yes, I’ve actually heard that complaint about playing the 1812 on the 4th of July.  It’s a stupid complaint.

It was wasn’t as sticky-hot this year, as we had a front moving in that brought the most wonderfully warm summer evening breeze.

The fireworks people had some new stuff this year, things we hadn’t seen before.  The Rainy-Downy Things (that’s our technical name for them) were very cool, though we were a little concerned about the fire hazard.  Each of those had quite a bit that hit the ground still ablaze.

The launch site was quite a bit farther from the spectator field than in the past, possibly due to The Rainy-Downy Things.  Unfortunately, that seemed to lower the impact of the display.  Two or three of the munitions fired during the finale went off early, very close to the ground, and that always worries me for the people on the ground working the display.

It was a fun night, traffic out wasn’t as bad as usual, and we crawled our still-stuffed-from-the-cookout asses into bed shortly after getting home.

We’re Home

The Pond on the Back FortyJust so y’know.  The snow melted, the sky cleared, and the trip home was uneventful.  It’s rather pleasant to be home and thawed out.

The Boy wrote a little about his father-in-law and his passing.  I’d consider it a personal favor if y’all went and read it.

Put It On Pause

We’re out of town for a family funeral, snowed in, and with dial up access (sometimes).

See you when we get back.

Some Things

His Holiness, The Glorified Houseplant Who Would Be CaesarSo anyone else think His Holiness, The Glorified Houseplant Who Would Be Caesar is watching the goings on in Pakistan and drooling all over the notes he’s taking?

Elizabeth over at SitPS brings us the good news/bad news on Genarlow Wilson and the ENDA situation, and Chris gives us the naked truth on Barbie Porn.

Two of my favorite science blogs are in the running for Best Science Blog of 2007. Go vote for BadAstronomy or Pharyngula, if you love your momma, apple pie, beer, and good sex. If you don’t, the terrorists will win.

[ETA – Too late, they did.]

The space shuttle Discovery went up, it came down, it’s safe and sound. Going ’round the earth in circles seems kind of pointless to me, though. I’d much rather we work on a way to zip on over to 55 Cancri f, where a fifth planet has been found around the very sun-like star. It’s in the habitable zone, but about Neptune sized so it’s probably not much like Earth. It’s probably perfect for the Transgendered Purple Octopus Aliens, though. Y’all thought I was kidding about them, didn’t ya’?

The Flyboys are much improved over last year. They’re gonna kick some butt this year. Uncle Kev the sports machine is picking them for the cup. The Eagles, not so much. The Phils dudded. Other than the dreamboats on ice, it’s sucking to be a Philadephia sports fan these days. (I don’t follow basketball, and I despise the Eagles, but I feel for Uncle Kev. He had such high hopes for the birds this year.)

Matt flings some poo at this new classic from perennial nutjob MinTheGap, who tells us that if there is such a thing as Global Warming, it’s just God using the weather to draw our attention to our sin. That guy’s so far out there, he’s half-way to 55 Cancri.

Blake Stacey cracks me up.

Criss Angel exposes a fraud on TV, Rebecca tells us as she recovers from a nasty shiner. Ouch. My own eye hurts from just looking at that picture!

Discovery

Shakespeare DawgShakespeare does not appreciate the wonder and magic to be found in a cup of coffee.

It must be a golden retriever thing.

(See what I meant about the picture resizing thing? Still pissin’ me off.)

The Boy in The Red Dress

Butt

So some of you have requested to see the pictures of The Boy in The Red Dress that he wore to Aunt Helen’s viewing. (The full story at that link, here at UDoJ.)

These were actually taken the following day, due to the stress and whatnot.

Fair warning, they may make you hot and bothered.

Hottie in The Red Dress.

Beach Day

Feesh 10A few cousins from the frozen tundra of Pennsylvania have elected to stay for the rest of the week, so we’re beach bound today.

Nothing like swimmin’ half naked in the fish toilet to wash your cares away.
