Set up lawn chairs a good safe distance from JackFrost's residence, leave the car motor running and the doors open for a quick retreat. Bring popcorn. Wear Kevlar. Crank up the volume.

Ribs and fireworks at home. One of the joys of living out of town. We'll get to enjoy our neighbors fireworks too.

arf! The "Smoking can be healthy?" ads are no better than snake-oil salesmen. Yes, I know LJW has to pay the bills somehow. I wish they had a little better judgement on what ads they approved.

Isn't the ad about ecigs or something? If they are going to advertise that, at least use a different headline. It grabs your attention, sure, but the lady smoking on it? Lame.

"Smoking can be slightly less unhealthy?"

Long weekend? Not all of us. I sadly have to work on Monday ... and no I don't work in retail, fast food, restaurant, cafe, etc. I work in an office, which in my opinion should be closed on Monday, unfortunately that opinion was not taken into consideration:(
