The Glorious Fourth

I'll will be staying close to home after Mass today attempting to keep the homestead safe from the universal orgy of neighborhood patriotic pyromania. The rocket's red glare is all very well so long as it doesn't set the roof on fire.

These fireworks are relatively safe and sane. (Thanks to Hilary for the citation.)

And all you ever wanted to know about Yankee Doodle. (Which fits fairly well on the pipes; only one false note required.)
