  1. Fireworks are pretty illegal, in New York State. I once had to pay some crazy fine from having bottle rockets in my trunk I had forgotten – the charge was something to the effect of ‘Transporting Explosives’. Ive never quite gotten the relation between the signing of a legal document and people blowing lots of things up, exactly…

  2. When I was growing up (late 70s into the 80s), my father used to make ice cream in that same old school way. We were NEVER allowed to touch that thing. I remember him yanking his hand off the top and shaking it, laughing, saying… that’s so cold. That was the best ice cream I’ve ever had. Rock salt is also used in this type of machine. Good memories, thanks 🙂

    As for fireworks, well, I remember my brothers setting off lady-fingers and m80’s. Crazy. I tried one time and got so scared. I didn’t throw it fast enough but it was out of my hand when the lady-finger went off. Thank goodness. It was like, light, hesitate, let go, boom. LOL 😉 I never touched another one of those things again! But I do enjoy watching a nice display of safely set off fireworks. 🙂

  3. Thanks for sharing Carrie. At work during lunch I did an unofficial poll about over the summer if a person had made their own ice cream with the hand crank method. There was certainly an age cut-off for those who had or hadn’t. Over 40, yes, hand cranked ice cream. Over 30, maybe hand cranked ice cream. Over 20, what are you talking about.
