Independence Day 2014

Last year when I posted a video of spectacular fireworks on the Fourth of July, I told you that they were the best I had ever seen. That's no longer so. These, sent by Darlene Costner and Joan McMullen several weeks ago, are the most beautiful ever.

They were designed and executed by someone who calls himself mediabyjj. He writes:

”We all made it, safe and sound, to the year 2013, and I wanted to continue the party by sharing this fireworks display I created & actualized. It took me a little over a week to complete, and I am very happy with the outcome.

“All of the shells are custom-made by me, and I take huge pride in the handiwork that went into bringing them to life.”

The lovely music accompanying the display is by Norwegian composer, Thomas Bergersen, titled Heart of Courage.

Enjoy the long holiday weekend, everyone.


The Elder Storytelling Place is taking a day off too. Fresh stories will return on Monday

Happy Fourth of July, Ronni

And a Happy Fourth to everyone else.

This is amazing! A delight to watch and see the celebration!
HAPPY 4th of JULY!

Ronni - You really have to watch the show out at Seaside (if it still allowed!). The hundreds of folks who participate show up early, dig bunkers in the sand, and sit and wait for the 'show of shows'.

This battle of fireworks is truly spectacular. However, the Washington DC shows all over town have been our best of the best.

Remember to hug a Vet today - and celebrate the 4th. Regards.

Thank you Ronni, quite exceptional! Can you imagine what it would be like to view this in person!

Everyone does realize that these "fireworks" are computer generated?

P.S. Which doesn't keep the video from being a beautiful presentation, of course!
