Deno’s Days of Distancing Together #10: Charles Denson on the History of the Wonder Wheel

This youtube clip, gives a short history on Deno’s Wonder Wheel in beautiful Coney Island Amusement Park in Brooklyn, NY.
Located at Coney Island Amusement Park in Brooklyn NY, that area has a lot to offer. Aside from the LandMark Amusement Park, it is next door to MCU Park, Home of The Brooklyn Cyclones and has beautiful beaches as well. There is also Nathans famous hotdogs right down the block.|
This video about the Wonder Wheel enhances the heritage and culture of that area and is filled with large amounts of history, regarding that area.
Enjoy the video!

This is from the youtube section Deno’s has, on the particular video #10:
Charles Denson, director of the Coney Island History Project, talks about the Wonder Wheel, Coney Island, and the inventions of Leonardo da Vinci. While writing his book on the history of the Wonder Wheel, he came across some amazing connections between Da Vinci and Coney Island. Denson says that many of Da Vinci’s 15th century mechanical drawings resemble rides in Coney Island, but there’s one machine that he invented that stands out among the others: Da Vinci’s design for a Perpetual Motion Machine.

A little blurb about the park:
“Deno’s Wonder Wheel Amusement Park is a family-owned amusement park located at Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York City. It features five adult rides and 16 kiddie rides, including a dozen family rides that parents and children can ride together.”

Posters

Hello everyone.
This is not a new item. It is one I had from last year. 2019 Eastern League All-Star Game, The Diamond in Richmond, Virginia. The Diamond is home to The Richmond Flying Squirrels. What an event it was!! A four day event! Kicked off the Sunday before with a celebration on Browns Island, Monday in Downtown Richmonds 

Business District with prizes and giveaways, and later that night a Country Music Jam at Richmond Raceway (my friend and I did not go to that event), and Tuesday night was the Home Run Derby with an event at The Diamond around noon to have some prizes and giveaways, finally The 
Eastern League All Star Game at The Diamond, it was an outstanding weekend!

Before the All Star Game, fans were invited to get autographs. I had won the poster in the image and had the entire Western Division autograph that poster. 

Unfortunately, due to the amount of people and time, many had time for one All Star Team. I was fortunate enough to get the division I wanted.

The other item, is a poster I designed last year of Long Island Ducks manager, Wally Backman, who was nice enough to sign it for me prior to a Sunday afternoon game.

Stubby: A Cat’s Story: Stubby gets a home [Kindle Edition]
This is the 2nd story in the series about Stubby. The stories are all based on a cat my mother had as a child. The stories about Stubby all promote the value of animals as well as encouraging kindness, patience and friendship. It is my hope that as people read about Stubby they will be encouraged to treat all animals with kindness as well as each other.

Baseball trading cards?

With the unsure start of the baseball season, some might wonder about trading cards in 2020.
I am kidding of course. No one can possibly predict what will happen, even though it seems a bit gloomy.
I was feeling a little creative. I came up with these cards.
