It’s a noisy place to be tonight. It smells a bit of sulphur, too.

Today I watched the shuttle Discovery take off live for the first time in at least a dozen years then spent a lazy day cleaning house and then having a bit of dinner on the deck waiting for some fireworks.

I’ve gotta say, it has it’s problems, but America’s a great place and I’m glad to be here.
