To have a safe and sane celebration.

   Only you can prevent neighborhood fires. Only You.

   Just go watch a professional show, if you can’t then here are some tips from the National Council on Fireworks Safety

Recommended Safety Tips

  • Obey all local laws regarding the use of fireworks.
  • Know your fireworks; read the cautionary labels and performance descriptions before igniting.
  • A responsible adult SHOULD supervise all firework activities.  Never give fireworks to children.
  • Alcohol and fireworks do not mix.  Save your alcohol for after the show.
  • Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks.
  • Light one firework at a time and then quickly move away.
  • Use fireworks OUTDOORS in a clear area; away from buildings and vehicles.
  • Never relight a “dud” firework.  Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water.
  • Always have a bucket of water and charged water hose nearby.
  • Never carry fireworks in your POCKET or shoot them into METAL or GLASS containers.
  • Do not experiment with homemade fireworks.
  • Dispose of spent fireworks by wetting them down and place in a metal trash can away from any building or combustible materials until the next day.
  • FAA regulations PROHIBIT the possession and transportation of fireworks in your checked baggage or carry-on luggage.
  • Report illegal explosives, like M-80s and quarter sticks, to the fire or police department.

Captain America, My Thoughts

Keeping this short and sweet(ish).

CAPTAIN AMERICA HYDRA

  1. Not a fan of the redesign.
  2. The story is very retconned, but interesting.
  3. I’m all for weird twists, so I am going to wait for the rest of the story.

   Batman and Captain America have been my two favorite solo heroes since I was a child. I’ve seen crazy stories come and go. If you don’t like this then wait for a few months, it will be totally different, just like every other change that Steve has gone though.

   Nuff Said.
