Fireworks

Always a sucker for free fireworks, I love the Fourth of July. There used to be other events that would have fireworks involved. But, sadly, most of those events have quit doing the fireworks because of the cost.

We used to see fireworks on the Lake a couple of times each year, but that was stopped when the park got sold. Now, about the only way to see fireworks other than downtown on the 4th is to go to a Friday night home game with our local baseball team. They put on a 15 minute show after the games – but only on Friday nights and on opening day.

Free ATM

One of the best things about the local Thornton’s gas station is that they have an ATM inside the store and there are no bank fees charged for you to use it. Of course, no one uses it to put money IN. People use it to get money OUT.

And it’s smart of Thornton’s to realize that if people can get access to their cash from the ATM, then they are more likely to spend money in the store while they are there and have the cash.
