The Fourth of July, Plus Bonus Video

Ridgewood Fireworks 1

The Fourth of July in Ridgewood, New Jersey. I lived here for about a year when my family moved from NYC to the burbs. My younger sister has lived here most of her life. The town has a big parade and fireworks show. There's always a big cook-out at my sister's home. All their old friends come by. In the video below, Lee and Bobby demonstrate how to prepare skirt steak.

Home tonight, but I think I'll do NY pix for a bit.

THAT is a patriotic cake. The strawberries and blueberries work. Did you know 98% of blueberries are grown in Maine?
