To my French friends and fellow collectors. It’s already July 15 where you are, but I didn’t forget. I simply lost track of the time.

What do other countries (besides France) celebrate with massive “ammo-in-the-sky” usage around the world? I remember Moscow October Revolution fireworks a long time ago, don’t know if they still celebrate that fine holiday.

Congratulations to all our French neighbours!

This shall remind us that there are way too few “good” revolutions in the world and one is overdue already for decades.

I remember sitting drinking beer at a table outside one of the restaurants on the waterfront at Verdun in 1994 watching the fireworks on Bastille day.
I was with my (late) father and a friend Jim Taylor from Nebraska, now sadly also gone.

The fireworks were spectacular but so was the bill for the drinks at the end of the night.
