Today while getting some R and R at Miami's South Beach, I had the pleasure of meeting a young man who is not only working on his Masters Degree, but is also an outstanding gymnast. Even though I was athletic in high school, I NEVER looked this good (well, maybe close.....LOL). Heck, he was even doing hand stand pushups!!! At any rate, Michael let me take a few shots and a small video of him doing his "aerial" work and here they are! Good luck my friend!

The other day my stepdaughter got quite a surprise.  She thought we were going to see my friend Vinny Pipitone's new home, which just happens to be next to the Caldwell Airport in New Jersey.  Instead, we pulled over at the airport and she got her first lesson in the Pipitone's amphibious Cessna 185!  After several water landings (which she did a great job flying), we took a sight seeing flight up the Hudson River and circled the Statue of Liberty a couple of times! THEN we went to see Vinny's gorgeous new home. Thanks for a wonderful afternoon Vinny!  Geez, what a neat surprise, eh?

During my recent trip to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (PUJ), I saw a couple of turtles that must spend an inordinate amount of time lolly gagging around in the small ponds around the hotel. I came to this conclusion after observing the LONG fur coats (algae?) that some seemed to be wearing.  The fish in the ponds with them seemed to enjoy eating this algae, and the turtles seemed to enjoy letting them do it.  It never amazes me the things you see in mother nature.

The other day while flying from Newark, NJ (EWR), to Mexico City, (MEX), we witnessed an awesome sunset.  The fiery reds were absolutely stunning.  It's such a great part of my job to be able to see sights like this. Yep, there MUST be a GOD to create masterpieces like this!
