Take it from me, make sure you're safe with the fireworks this weekend.  I've never mentioned this out of the "circle of friendship," but many years ago I almost burned down my house and the 2 neighbors on each side.

Luckily no one was hurt, except my friend Fudgie who twisted his knee trying to run from the horror.  Thinking back, it wouldn't have been that tragic to lose him.  He's become quite a load to the rest of us.

Anyway...back to the safe part.  The Michigan DNR has some good advice.  Click on the button.
