I’ve shared this through the years now. You are in for a treat if you haven’t done this before — you should check out the the Washington DC fireworks on PBS Television on the Fourth of July! The last three years were just AWESOME!! PBS TV runs the program live and then re-runs it again for those who missed it! It just keeps on getting better and better. The 31st annual broadcast of the Washington DC fireworks will air live in HD on PBS Wednesday, July 4, 2012 at 8 p.m. ET (check local listings). The facebook page is here!
Grandpa Ron and I went for a long walk in Long Beach last Saturday. We spent quite a while watching the dredging operation scooping mud up from the bottom of the Alamitos Bay onto a waiting barge for use in a new Long Beach container complex. The Long Beach Press Telegram reported that 63,000 cubic yards of sediment are to be cleared with two-thirds of it going to the Port of Long Beach. Here’s an article I found from the Contra Costa Times written by Long Beach Press-Telegram Staff Writer Joe Segura. Here’s my short video – complete with a child’s expressed delight in getting a huge splosh of mud flying everywhere! The operator was obviously having his own fun with us! 🙂
