    Following on from a valid observation by the wise one Jinn, here is the start of the Todays excuse/reason to fire thread.

    16 June 2017 - Reason to fire for today, I fired something yesterday and nothing bad happened so I might as well do it again today.

    I was thinking more along the lines of the whole anniversary of the first woman in space thing, but any reason is valid, lol.

    It will probably just be another Sky Navigator rocket or two for me, same as Yuri got back in April.
    S won't let me fire anything with a whoosh or bang, but I'm running out of my precious little fishy rockets.

    How about an incentive ... every lbs I lose in weight converts to a cake or the amount of NEQ I can light! Bring on the Slimfast shakes and I'll be lighting my Glittering Prize in about 4 weeks.
    And yes ... I have had enough of being in the Galactic 18-30 stones club.
    Bet you can't wait for my bikini pics, especially Top Gun Tony (tgt) lol! #Fat4Fire

    Not to piss on your chips Simon but I've just lost a stone and a half in 3 weeks!!!
    If I can do 2 stone in 4 weeks, I feel I've earned firing my whole stash!!
    It has been a full time job, mind!
    But I'm now fit for the first time in my life!
    Walking 3-6 miles and swimming 1km each day. Last 4 days Swimming followed by cardio and weights. Eating nowt but salad, fish, meat, vegetables. Practically no bread, potatoes, dairy. No biscuits, cakes, crisps etc.
    I can see the difference, face thinner, body more toned. But to feel the change all over when I shower after swimming is very encouraging.
    I've been doing walks of several miles on and off for a while, it has got me fitter rather than shedding weight.
    But the swimming has amazed me. I went from doing 15x up and down lengths of our local large pool, with rest after each, to swimming all 30 lengths (1km) without pause, within about a week of practice.
    I have been buzzing. Barely hungry. Barely need sleep. Thinking so much more clearly. I wrote out something complex on paper the other day, needed to clarify and organise some thoughts, and it was like that Limitless film, just flowed out coherently straight off without cause for adjustment.
    Having said all that...
    I haven't had a drink or smoke in 5 weeks, so there's many thousands less calories, and clearer lungs. And isn't it incredible, the amount of effort to be a couple of stone lighter. I'll be intrigued to see if I continue to lose weight or plateau when I can't spend so much time exercising. I have to ask myself whether eating and drinking all I like, and sitting on my arse, and lingering around 18st... is more fun than living like a saint to be a bit lighter.
    Time will tell...

    Did you pick up any daytimes, Pimp you handsome young man (pimp)?
    I'm worried about the burning debris in this weather, might wait to use mine in the snow - if we ever get any again.

    If I was firing today I'd say it was an experiment in cloud forming / weather control, any clouds I actually made would be a bonus.
    Can't use Father's Day since I'm not a very good dad at all.

    Well, we haven't been on for a bit. Found another way to lose weight, Rob. Not recommended. . Produce a lot of gallstones.... We did really like Pimp you handsome young man (pimp)'s plan of starting with a small fountain and gradually increasing night on night until you build up to a brocade war. It might take a couple of weeks but......YES HA!! Hope you are all ok x

    If you don't fire for Canada Day, they might not let you back in.

    Happy 150th, Canada!

    I don't have anything to fire except the innards of a few war hawks....... Not sure they'd like those.

    Did a few little bits of tat out of a TNT box tonight.
    Didn't rival the sound we got from Ripley last night, lol, but it scratched an itch.
    And the wheel span! Only lasted 10secs, but it span!

    Because I was sent through to get pudding after tea, without ANY adult supervision.

    I'm not really one for celebrating death, so maybe not tonight - but what if George A Romero comes back?

    YMMV, but it's my non-twin brother's birthday today...

    Doubt I'll fire because a) He's a twit and b) next door have got a tent up in the garden, I don't want to burn it.
    Might do a couple of little founts and a wheel but I wouldn't bother looking out your windows.

    I fired a brand new Black Cat Concerto pack to see what it was like Sunday night, four nice hexagonal fountains and four equally nice 12 shot square cakes abound inside and are quality indeed from the 'Cat's Gold Collection ;)

    well its my birthday friday so its a good chance to use some of the freshly bought Galactic Sale stuff that is supposed to be delivered this week. Hope to do a low noise session and fire 57 small rockets..hmm and a pink champagne should go down nicely with a Cube Sport selection box and a bit of other pretty candles, wheels and fountains thrown in. :cake:

    thank you guys, rain delayed firing to saturday night but that allowed a new rocket rack design to be tested out and boyo turned up again to help out. 57 rockets were fired and no need to use any spares...the old TNT Soaring Eagles rockets proved once again to be good low noise rockets for a low price. Sadly my Cube Sport selection boxes failed to come with the order so other smaller items were used . Pink champagne and TNT colour storm bought on sale day and other smaller sale items were fired to make a total items fired number of 111.
