Remembering Jack The Dog

It is with deepest sadness I announce the passing of Jack The Dog. My friend had to put him down on December 3, 2018.
He was a wonderful dog, so happy, so uplifting. He was a little over 15 and a half years old, when age crept up on him and seizures became more frequent. After the last seizure, my friend realized, it was time. She felt the need to just end his agony, it was for the best.
Jack was such a wonderful dog with a great attitude. A loyal companion, happy go lucky.
I remember many a time we would walk for hours, each time he was smiling away the time. It was so special. He was such a comfort to be around. It is amazing how much love can be shared between that Special Dog and the people in his life.
Rest in peace Jack. We loved you dearly and I know you loved “Mom” and I very much.

Marvel Comics Legend Stan Lee Dead at 95

For those who lived on Marvel Comic books as a kid, you would know Stan Lee. A legend before his time, passed away at 95.

He was an idol to many for the wonderful graphics and stories of the super heroes we came to know and love (or despise as the case may be: villains we loved to hate).

A sad day indeed. Rest in peace, Stan Lee!

New York

“New York City owns a creepy island that almost no one is allowed to visit — here’s what it’s like”

This is something interesting, that most New Yorkers are not even aware of. I never knew either about these two almost unknown islands in New York.

Thurman Munson

Hello everyone. I thought this might be an interesting link for fans of former New York Yankee Great, Thurman Munson. As some of you might know, Thurman Munson has not been elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame. It is quite interesting with all his above average statistics, he was never elected. He is my favorite baseball player.
