    Happy New Year from the Netherlands. For the last three days, as usual, fireworks have been going off all over the place (most of them illegal) sounds like a war zone. Its a pity that the weather will be bad tonight, as there are two Chinese restauants on my street that normally put on one hell of a show.....

    I have not bought fireworks for years after blowing up my brother-in-law (he was still rolling it out when I lit it, they call it a 100,000 banger) then a hedge caught fire and this set off two big rockets, one went through a bedroom window, the other one went across the road through an open front door and destroyed the kitchen door....I went and hid but they found me.........

    I knew there was something I really liked about you. I used to work night crew in a supermarket. We would stock the shelves at night when the store was closed. One night we got a cheesecake from the bakery section and tied together some firecrackers and stuck them in the center of the cheesecake. We were about to light them off but stopped. I told the boys "we'd better set this in a big box (the kind that paper towels are shipped in) so it doesn't get blown all over. We did this and lit off the firecrackers. They went off with a huge bang and blew the cheesecake straight up in the air splattering the ceiling tiles which were 20 feet above us. We looked at it in disbelief. We didn't have anything high enough to reach it and clean it off so we had to leave it there. We were sure we'd all be fired the next day. To our surprise, no one noticed it for about 2 months. No one ever seemed to look up at it. Naturally, no one could figure out what it was or how it got there.

    Since I worked road construction. I knew a lot of truck drivers. If you wanted to buy something, there was a truck driver somewhere that could get it for you. One driver could get fireworks, and I mean the big stuff. You could buy all different sizes depending on what you wanted to spend. I bought one that was the size of a beer can. It had a fuse about 2 feet long. I lit it at the end of a street where there were no houses. I was with my cousin and his white German shepherd. After I lit the fuse, I ran like hell over to where I cousin was standing, about 40 yards away. When it went off, you could feel the blast wave from it. If it had been near a house or car it would have taken out the windows. The dog was so frightened, she ran about six blocks to my aunt's house, kept scratching at the door and when she let it in, the dog ran into the bedroom, jumped up on the bed and peed on it.

    I can't possibly imagine a 100,000 roll!!!!!!!!!! The best I ever had was 40,000. It was huge and went off forever. I did do several 20,000 rolls. We used to put them into a large tub, the kind that was about a foot high and 3 feet in diameter. When you kept the string of firecrackers coiled up and didn't unroll them, put them in the tub and lit it, as the flame would go around the coil it would lite the coil under it which would lite the coil under that one and so on, and so on until everything seemed to be going off at once. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what a chain reaction. And EVERTHING being in the tub, you didn't have to sweep up the street for the next forth minutes. It was GREAT.

    This was totally illegal Chinese import. I had a few sleepless nights after loading some with some drilling equipment on a truck that then went on a boat to Scotland for my boss.......

    good that you were still able to get your hands on it. Must have been a lot of fun but scary. They are illegal here, but I get them in Pennsylvania, They are illegal to pa. residents but there is a loophole in the law that says that they can sell them to out of state residents. So as long as I have a nj driver's lic. there is no problem, that is of course after I cross the bridge in to nj I don't get stopped by troopers.

    Going out to din-din now with the wife. Must go to bed early as I have to work tomorrow. I was supposed to have it off but they pulled my day and gave me off last Friday. No fun for us on holidays or weekends when you work for the casino. Happy New Year---Frankie
