I'm doing nothing except playing with my grand daughters. Looking at houses that I may want to move to here in the Boise Idaho area, damn it's nice here.

its a hobby , but i went out and got my federal explosives lisc to go with , so i get to manufacture and play with stuff alot more powerful then fireworks( i.e high explosives / destructive devices ) and i dont even have make that stuff i can call up and order what ever i want and have it delivered

i make all my own stuff from scratch, i just buy all my chemicals in bulk and mix up whatever for what i need or want to make


ive always been into fireworks and the sort, finally got tired of paying for over priced consumer stuff and just dove into it , i can build my own professional grade/sized stuff for a fraction of what consumer stuff costs

ps lamapres are generally flash powder , with a bottole of fuel i.e gasoline inside the shell, larger ones can be made with flash powder and coffee creamer though, though the gasoline produces a much nicer fireball

some other stuff ive done

the stars shatter on burst on this shell but the rising effect is one of the favorite ones i make

You can probably buy a house 4 times the size on 10 acres for what you can sell your CA house for. Is there a job opportunity there ? That's the big question of moving to a more remote location when you still need to work.
Oh, and you'll need to buy a winter jacket... We were 11 yesterday morning in MN.
