First I want to thank the OC businesses for the fireworks tonight. Much appreciated. I would like to suggest, however, that they start at 9pm so the kids could see them as well. I know all the caveats, to much light earlier in the night, etc but its just as important for the parents that the kids are in bed on time as it is 4 the kids. We need the break!! Thx again!
