1. So great.! :) Really wanted to stop

on the way through, very seriously considered, but in the end settled for waving from the freeway. Yes, sad. But rlght now were watching fireworks in upstate New York in camp chairs, sitting sipping drinks, from where we parked. Not so sad.

3. I couldn't find the channel the Boston Pops are on.

I thought they were usually on PBS, but they had the DC fireworks.

Macy's display was fantastic.

7. Boston Pops on Bloomberg TV

Ch 814 on comcast HD.

They started off with a tribute to Woodstock (50th anniversary). Arlo Guthrie was on stage to sing "The Times They Are A-Changin'". Don't know if he'll be back to do a little chorus of "Alice's Restaurant" or not.

10. Nope

I miss the weekly Pops concerts that used to be broadcast on PBS. For a few years the Pops 4th of July concert was carried on A&E, but the few years it's been on Bloomberg.

12. Loved that Arlo sung the 4th verse of This Land Is Your Land

anyone catch the sneering lady in the Maga hat in the shot as the hosts were introducing Arlo there?
