A little trivia...
My second child was born in 1976. She is known as a bicen

One big problem many states in the USA have right now, is the weather.
In some states, it is against the law for individuals to purchase fireworks.
I live in Tennessee and fireworks are legal for individual purchase.
However, in my area, we are banned from setting off fireworks due to the drought.
Where I am, it has been over 3 weeks since we have had rain. It's very hot and dry here.
All the grass has turned brown. When walking on the grass, you hear crunch crunch because the
grass is now brown and crispy dry. We are also under 'no burn notice'. Meaning we are not allowed
to burn anything on our properties. Also, some areas are now limited to water usage.
So here we are, some states under extreme heat while other states have been hit hard with a storm
that has left millions without electricity. Still yet, other states have been suffering fires.
This summer has been really bad thus far.
July 4th celebrations will still continue but they will have to be over lakes, oceans, and waterways for the most
part, due to the heat in some states.

My pond is dry except for a small hot mud puddle. So I have set about 30 ice cream buckets in various areas,
and fill with water daily. I think I look very funny driving the lawnmower pulling a cart with milk jugs full of
