Yeah, you too! A lot of fireworks got cancelled around here because of dry climate but plenty of people still did it anyways.

Same thing here. We didn't want any more fires. We still had friends over and played games, though. Still a fun day.

Bah Humbug I say. Bombs were keeping me up till Midnight.

Seriously though, Drach, dont you DARE dis-illusion our American view of your Oktober Fest. I have ALWAYS wanted to go to Munich and celebrate. The version here is supposed to be small time in comparison.

I had to stop in the middle of a country road in the middle of no where to put out a fire.

There was a bottle rocket laying dead center in the middle of it. Luckily it must've just started before I drove by so it wasn't very large yet.

After going to Mardi Gras for a couple of years, me and some college friends went to Oktoberfest in Munich. Now that's a PARTY! And it's not just one day either. It goes for 2 weeks.

However, people there told us we really should have come over for Fasching as it was a much more wild party....

If you want a real Party, you have to to go to Fasching, at best at Cologne.
And no joke, in Cologne is the baby birth rate 9 months after Fasching the highest in the year...

My son Jonathan had fun this past Independence Day, since we were in Florida where fireworks are legal. Nothing spectacular-just some fountains, spinners, and sparklers. You would not believe how many people were shooting off their own fireworks in Titusville, FL, even as the town display was going on.

Yestarday the CEO of our Bavarian Main Office was in our Office and made us an offer:
If we sell enough assurances in the remaining year, he will invite our entire team of 16 people to the Oktober Fest, will rent a box there in one of the big Tents and will pay for all, including Hotel.

So, anyone assurances here? Wink
