:) I remember Standard Fireworks throughout my life from baby right up to now (albeit Chinese!). My first experience of fireworks as a bab was my dad had bought a size 30 box of Standard Fireworks from the local ironmongers shop in town for Nov5th, it had Mt Vesuvius/Jumping Jack/Golden Zodiac/Traffic Lights/Snowstorm/Animated Roman Candle/Firefly/Coloured Roman Candle/Silver Rain/Diamond Cascade/Retro-R/Jetscream/Floodlight/Jack In A Box/AirBomb/Screecher/Shooting Star/Pinwheel/Jewel Fountain/SuperSonic Bang/Silver Fountain/Carnival Spray. The Jumping Jack jumped around the garden and went into the house (and made quite a lot of smoke!). Since then my dad has bought me a box of Standard Fireworks every year as a child up to the point where I earned pocketmoney at 16 and bought my own and I have bought Standard ever since, the first Chinese imports were good but since Black Cat bought the company out they have gone a bit sour and are nothing like what they used to be, merely a plain imitation of Black Cat stuff with another name. :( The british made ones were expensive but I found them quite good and the rockets didn't bang either. :rolleyes:

i also love standard, few years ago i got my first box, it was red.
i wash cars for fireworks, because i am low on money. the black mamba rockets are most excellent.
