kupomog, If it was anything like last year (see your post #21)...you're in trouble dear.

Yeah >.< Dogs are so getting tranq'd this year. We seperate the dogs because ever since the mommy had puppies, she hates the daddy. And he hates the pups for some reason so we keep him on one side and the rest on the other. But everytime there are fireworks, he gets scared, jumps over to their side and just gets beat up. I don't think we can possibly reinforce the fence anymore than we already have, I can barely see over it anymore. If he jumps over the fence this time, then he's clearly just a magic dog. Dumb, but magic. We'll be taking lots of precautions this year, though. I'll keep those dogs from killing each other even if it means I get an owie.

With a house full of asthma sufferers, most pint-sized, the semi-annual pyrofest that is the 4th of July and New Year's is always something to dread, not look forward to. Their effect on pets is no picnic to deal with, either.

I do love professional fireworks shows, and would be happy if that's all there were. I know the Aloha Tower Marketplace display will actually be on Monday, July 3. I imagine the other traditional displays at Ala Moana and in Kailua will be on the 4th as usual.

On the news tonight, they mentioned the city's ban on fireworks in city parks. I know in Makiki, where most folks live in apartment buildings, the local park was pretty much where all the pyromaniacs ended up, resulting in melted playground equipment and trash everywhere. While I'm all for the ban, I imagine it -- like most fireworks-related laws in this city -- will generally go unenforced except in the most blatant of situations.

The good news is that it looks like we'll actually have decent tradewinds on the 4th this year... for the first time in a long time... to help dissipate the smoke.

I miss TP. He was my cat. Had him for nearly three years, then one day he didn't come back. It's been almost two years since he's been gone.

more on TP my cat? http:www.hawaiistories.com/lynn

I empathize with you. Can't be anything worse than losing members of the family, two-leggeds or four.

I'm surprised they haven't included paperless fireworks into the permit law yet. Those things can be just as dangerous, smokey and loud as traditional firecrackers.

Gotta' admit, paperless fireworks are pretty cool though. I wish they came out with these when we were kids. Plus, they sure make a lot less mess than traditional firecrackers, which is nice. No "duds" either.

Still, so many people get carried away with their own fireworks, and Oahu's population density now makes it that much more hazardous; especially for those with respiratory problems.

Leave it to the pros.

I wouldn't have said that when I was a teenager though.

I wasn't reminded of the 4th of july until I saw a couple of boys near a smoking rubbish can in Kalihi yesterday . A lot of people will get hung over that night and probably fail a lot of the tests the next day.

Argh! I've been grounded this year due to bronchitis. So much for my planned fun and smokey coupla days in Malaekahana. Doc says stay inside and seal up the house! Fortunately that won't be difficult but it kicks this long week-end to the curb.

I know...I know...insert sound of one, untuned, violin string!

In The Honolulu Advertiser this morning
http://the.honoluluadvertiser.com/ar...607010306.html

COMMENTARY
"Home alone, with secrets and pain to share"
By Ellen Goodman

I found the article true and blunt to the core. I have the honor to serve elderly single men several times per week. Their only high light for the day is when they go out to kaukau. I listen to their many stories, laugh and cry with them. They can't give me tips but thier stories are worth more to me ...it's History!

It saddens me to think how unlucky some people are not to be able to have someone to "talk" to. Especially Ohana. It saddens me more that we as a Society have put our Lifestyle all to fast to simply enjoy each other.

Reading the article this morning, having celebrations for a fabulous July 4th weekend has made me rethink what is priority in my Life.

Yes, I am blessed to have an Ohana who takes time to wala'au with me, friends who sometimes can't shut-up and an Online Ohana who I can count on for advice as well as ventilate to.

Mahalo everyone!

Happy Independence Day Celebrations!
GOD BLESS AMERICA

Auntie Lynn

btw: Ukipila things going on!

On the eve of the celebration of America's birth, a poem written by Langston Hughes, one of the foremost contemporary black American authors/poets.

"...We, the people, must redeem
The land, the mines, the plants, the rivers.
The mountains and the endless plain--
All, all the stretch of these great green states--
And make America again! "


A biography about the author, Langston Hughes.

We didn't plan on going down, but after fighting for street parking on S. King across from the post office for my daughter's swim lesson at the YWCA (which was cut short 'cause one kid did not wait 40 minutes after eating), we decided to walk over.

The kids ended up collecting prizes from all those tents (mostly keychains), riding various rides (most $1, which isn't as bad as Heather's Inflatables can get, at least), and then checking out the giant cake. While my daughter was admiring it, Daryl Huff from KITV interviewed her for the 5 p.m. news!



Happy Birthday, Honolulu. Even if this "Centennial" is a couple of years late.

Anyone braving the crowds for Aloha Tower Marketplace's "3rd of July" festivities and fireworks tomorrow? I'll be in the neighborhood for work, but probably won't see much.

Too cute! Way to go, Katie! Hopefully KITV will repeat that segment at 10p. And, hopefully, I can stay awake 'til then! Might youtube be in the future?

Anyone buy those 3-D glasses they're selling at Ala Moana and Aloha Tower Marketplace?

I'm wondering how effective they would be...

Too kewl! I saw that interview and thought the girl was cute, bright, and well spoken. What a sweetie! It projects right through the screen.
(Loved her comment about how the cake was so big it had to baked by the sun. )
Give her a hug from all her aunties and uncles at HT, Ryan!
Then get that girl a casting agent. (wave to TutuSue)

She's been thru my office a few times, LN! And, yes, she is a sweetie; bright, articulate, outgoing, a very free spirit!

I'm hoping to be there...my boyfriend is balking at the idea of trying to find parking in Kailiua for the fireworks there on Tues, as he said they've already got much of the street parking blocked off, so Mon at Aloha Tower might be my only chance to see firworks.

I got a pair from Ala Moana...maybe if I drink enough I'll actually put them on to watch the Aloha Tower fireworks.
