More like Greenland, snow that doesn't melt, becomes ice, ice then gets more snow, that becomes more ice, soon enough the beginnings of a glacier or an ice sheet...



Sounds like you have 2 seasons there, Winter and the 4th of July.



4th of July? That I don't understand.

Old Canadian joke:

I missed summer last year. It was on a Wednesday, and I had to work.

That's a good one, lucky me though I had the day off.

No, not true, if I remember right my Honey do list had me cutting the grass.

Since my folks were both from Canada I guess I had just pass it on.[/u]

In the past the relatives would celebrate My Birthday on the 4th instead of the 6th, heck I'd even get to see fireworks, so I didn't mind really. Today, not so much, the relatives if they have the time and money will come out, but only 2 out 4, mainly as their the nearest these days...

I might be repeating my mother of years ago but she said, wouldn't it be nice for all the money spent on fireworks to be used to build a new playground or something useful? instead burning it up in a few minutes? At first I thought no but now she wasn't wrong.

Out in the desert areas of CA fireworks are illegal since everything is dry, of course that doesn't stop some from buying where it is legal and using the fireworks where they shouldn't anyway...

I'll be happy when the 6th gets here, as the political ads will be over then, finally...

Over here, some fireworks are illegal but most of them can be bought in specialty stores. Quite expensive though. I bought some 2 years ago with New Year. The kids just loved it.

As Chris states ... a party, birthdays, bonfire night, etc, is the "any excuse forr fireworks" now. Scares te life out of the dogs, and it is the younger families in the village that do this ...
