Damp Days

Today is cool, grey and damp. It's just perfect for curried meat pies for lunch.

Cracker night

This weekend is what is called The Queen's Birthday Long Weekend. We used to buy fireworks and build bonfires and have late night picnics while we set off the bungers.

Can't anymore, of course. Fireworks are banned. The last incident injured a kid when he took the powder out of a bunch of fizzers, poured it into a copper pipe, and had it explode in his face when he started drilling a fuse hole. See how dangerous fireworks are?

I might consider constucting a sparkler bomb. Take >500 sparklers and tie them together, light one and stand back.
