^Sounds good! London fireworks apparently had a female dominated soundtrack to celebrate the centenary of women getting the vote.

I was at a party in London then watched the fireworks from Primrose Hill.

I worked. I didn't want to go out, there are too many people.

Home---eating a seafood spread,looking out the living room window at fireworks over the Atlantic. June 2018 will be my 1st trip to London since July 2013. It will be Sylvia's 1st London experience. Hope to see Gingerbeer women!

Home, with wife, son the younger and his girlfriend. Watched the neighbours burning lots of money in a pretty way for nearly an hour then got bored. I still find it incredible how much people spend on fireworks in the Netherlands  :o. It was, however, a very pleasant New Years Eve this year.

  • I'm an okay arsehole.
I had a massive freakout in Amsterdam on NYrs Eve for this reason.

People throwing boxes of fireworks down then lobbing a match it.  Absolute chaos and people running everywhere.  And it continued happening all evening (till I jumped a cab out if it).
Hear me RoaaAAARRRRRrrrrr.......... purrrrRRRR.

Yes, for years I didn't dare spend NYE in the country. Coming back to find round piles of soggy pink paper one metre in diameter in the middle of the cycle path and street and finding out that this was the remains of massive rolls of fireworks/bangers scared the living daylights out of me.

Seems people at least prefer prettier fireworks these days. From behind glass, I can kind of enjoy those.

This reminds me of Bastille Day in Paris 1990!
