COUNTDOWN 3 TO 65 @ FAIRMONT BANFF SPRINGS. We were greeted by name at check-in “Bonjour Mr Fortunato”; a young lady knew us at Fairmont Tremblant. Others remembered us as “You’re Showtime”. It was flattering, and then to receive an early birthday cheesecake, fresh strawberries, chocolate, and mineral water (someone knows what I like). Banff Springs with its Christmas décor has such an international aura with tourists from all over the world, and a group of 200 travel agents from Germany. The most interesting was a private tour with Ryan Wilson. I was shown the Royal Suite where Queen Elizabeth and celebrities stay; the first guest was Arnold Swarzenegger. This room is $5,000/night. I saw fossils in the staircases of dinosaurs from 450 million years ago; 4 Bronze doors weighing a total of 8,000 lbs of the Alhambra ballroom worth 2 million dollars (we held our convention in this ballroom in 2010); the Cascade Ballroom with the only original oak floor from 1928 (our competition in 2010 was in th ...

★(¯´*•.¸ ★* CALI UPDATE! *★¸.•*´¯)★ Cali has landed with her flying angel, Shelley, at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport at approximately 1216 EST. They are currently preparing for landing at Atlanta. From there, they have a small layover, and will be departing Atlanta at 145 PM EST bound for Los Angeles Airport. They will be on Delta Flight 1855, due at LAX around 326 PM PST. Some interesting facts about Atlanta: Peachtree Street is not named for a peach tree of any sort. Many of Atlanta's corridors follow the paths created by the Creek and Cherokee Indian nations who inhabited the area until the early 19th Century. A large Creek settlement was called Standing Pitch Tree after a tall lone tree. Over time, the "pitch tree" became "peach tree. Atlanta is the only city in North America destroyed by a fire as an act of war. Following the city's surrender to General Sherman in 1864, only 400 structures remained standing. Today, the city's symbol is the Phoenix, a legendary ...

Today, I was in Hamilton, Ontario for the Hamilton and Scourge Memorial Event at Dundurn Castle, a National Historic Site. Although the weather did not cooperate [it was raining all day], there were over 100 people who came to see "On The Water: The Hamilton and Scourge Commemoration Ceremony", a film by Peter Rowe, edited by Mark Arcieri. The film, shot aboard the Coast Guard cutter, The Griffon, on September 4th, 2013. Interspersed between segments of the official ceremony were 'glimpses' of scenes from "Shipwrecked on A Great Lake" which is still in post production. One scene in particular was so dramatic.watching Ned Myers [played by actor, Jack Manser] and George Turnblatt [played by actor, Tayo Jacob] fighting the elements while on the Scourge in the huge storm of August 8, 1813. After the film, I went to see a very realistic exhibition called 'Living in the Field', showing tent accommodation for officers [private tent with all kinds of accoutrements] and another tent for up to six common soldiers. ...

"Freedom is not a gift which can be enjoyed save by those shown themselves worthy of it." Theodore Roosevelt "Teddy's Fourth of July" Painting by Mort Kuntsler of Oyster Bay Mort Künstler’s Comments What an extraordinary person was Theodore Roosevelt! And how special it is for me to paint him in our hometown of Oyster Bay, New York. Living in Oyster Bay means living in the shadow of the exceptional “T.R.,” whose famous Sagamore Hill home is a National Historic Site. In all of the thousands of paintings I’ve done, only two have featured Theodore Roosevelt – until now. Teddy’s Fourth of July is my third, and the only one set in Oyster Bay. So this has been a rare and remarkable treat for me. For many years, my friend and Oyster Bay neighbor, Roger Bahnik, encouraged me to do a painting of Theodore Roosevelt in Oyster Bay. I just always had too many other projects underway, especially Civil War paintings. Finally, Roger told me, “Roosevelt is our Oyster Bay President; you are Oyster Bay’s ar ...

Black History Fact # 11 ( Black Pioneers ) - Nicodemus, KS. Nicodemus, Kansas is the only remaining western community established by African Americans after the Civil War. Having an important role in American History, the town symbolizes the pioneering spirit of these ex-slaves who fled the war-torn South in search of "real” freedom and a chance to restart their lives. This "ghost town ” has since gained recognition as a National Historic Site. In the late 1870’s the black population of the South was extremely restless, as the Reconstruction following the Civil War failed to bring the long awaited freedom, equality and prosperity. Instead, they were racially oppressed, poverty-stricken, debt-ridden and starving. At this time, along came a white man by the name of W.R. Hill, who described a "Promise Land” in Kansas to black families in the backwoods of Kentucky and Tennessee. Hill told of a sparsely settled territory with abundant wild game, wild horses that could be tamed, and an opportunity to ow ...

Courtesy of, the free online encyclopedia of Washington State. Clark County becomes a Tourist Destination: Tourism became an important economic asset for the county after World War I. Paving of the Pacific Highway, US 99, in the 1920s brought automobile travelers. After World War II, in 1948, Congress designated the Fort Vancouver site a National Historic Monument. In 1961, Congress upgraded the designation to National Historic Site expanded boundaries. In the 1970s, federal dollars funded a National Park Service reconstruction of the old Hudson’s Bay Company post. By 2000, reserve visitation, at 376,000, exceeded that for five out of eight federal parks in Washington. These trends of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries left Clark County at the beginning of the twenty-first century with about 1,250 farms employing just over 1,000 workers. This compared to 1,631 firms and 13,561 workers in construction and 443 firms and 26,813 workers in manufacturing. The county’s top three employer ...

Don't stay in the house today! Go on down to San Francisco and check out Civil War Living History Day located at Fort Point! Between 1853 and 1861, Fort Point was constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to prevent entrance of a hostile fleet into San Francisco Bay. The fort was occupied throughout the Civil War, but the invention of faster, more powerful rifled cannons made brick forts obsolete. In 1886, the troops were withdrawn, and the last cannons were removed around 1900. During World War II, Fort Point was occupied by 100 soldiers who manned searchlights and rapid-fire cannons as additional protection to the submarine net strung across the entrance to the bay. Since then the fort has become a National Historic Site and a history museum, but that doesn’t mean the action has gone away. Each year, members of local re-enactment groups and Civil War organizations come together to perform historical demonstrations at the fort, as part of Civil War Living History Day. They include infantry and ar ...

Established in 1968 by Mrs. Coretta Scott King, The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change (“The King Center”) has been a global destination, resource center and community institution for over a quarter century. Nearly a million people each year make pilgrimage to the National Historic Site to learn, be inspired and pay their respects to Dr. King’s legacy. Both a traditional memorial and programmatic nonprofit, the King Center was envisioned by its founder to be “no dead monument, but a living memorial filled with all the vitality that was his, a center of human endeavor, committed to the causes for which he lived and died.” That vision was carried out through educational and community programs until Mrs. King’s retirement in the mid-1990’s, and today it’s being revitalized. As we move into the second decade of the 21st century, the King Center is embarking on a major transformation into a more energetically-engaged educational and social change institution.

105.9 SEASIDE-FM - 95th anniversary of Halifax Explosion to be commemorated on December 6 Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2012 - On Thursday, Dec. 6, citizens will remember one of the region's most devastating moments in its history. An official ceremony will be held from 8:50 a.m. to 9:20 a.m. at the Fort Needham Hill Bell Tower to remember the lives lost through the Halifax Explosion of 1917 as well as its survivors and heroes. The explosion followed the collision of two ships - the French munitions ship, the Mont Blanc, and the Norwegian relief ship, the Imo - in the Narrows, just below the commemorative bell tower. The devastation shook the region and took with it some 2,000 lives, inflicted injuries on approximately 9,000 and flattened the north end of Halifax and destroyed a Mi’kmaq community on the opposite shores of the explosion in Dartmouth. Other events to commemorate the solemn anniversary include: 9:05 a.m. - Commemorative sounding of the cannon at Halifax Citadel National Historic Site 9:30 a.m. – Publ ...

What’s New with Colonial Capital Tours in Washington D.C…. 2011 saw the dedication of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial on the National Mall. Situated in a dramatic alignment with the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, it is inscribed with some of the great man’s famous words. The Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool has just undergone a two year $30 million restoration project. Improvements include increased lighting, sidewalks in place of dirt pathways and improved accessibility from the pool level to the Memorial Plaza. At the Smithsonian Museum of American History, a new exhibit will commemorate both the 50th anniversary of Dr. MLK’s “I Have A Dream” speech in Washington D.C. and the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation which effectively ended slavery. The historic Howard Theater has reopened after being closed for more than 30 years following a $29 million renovation. This grand old building has hosted musical greats such as Duke Ellington and Aretha Franklin. Ground has been . ...

Seeing that today was the birthday of both Bronson and Louisa May Alcott, I decided to look for some mentions of the Alcotts in the published versions of Henry and Fanny's papers. There is a wonderful mention of an 1848 visit by Henry to Concord. Henry's version simply states: "Went to Concord to dine with Emerson, and meet his philosophers, Alcott, Thoreau, and Channing." Fanny provides us with much greater detail: "He passed a few days with Emerson at Concord, and met Alcott, Channing, Thoreau, all Emerson's 'gossips' as he calls them. They seemed very quiet, impressive people, he says, but had little chance to hear them roar. He rather spoiled his day by going so late, instead of taking the early train, as Emerson wished, and then he could have had a satisfactory talk with the sage before the others arrived."

The federal government plans to shut down historic Drake's Bay Oyster Farm on Point Reyes National Seashore, designating the site as a wilderness area. Effective immediately, rancher Kevin Lunny has 90 days to vacate. My main point—there's a conflict of interest between NPS and what the ranchers agreed to back when PRNS was created in 62. DBOF was established 100 years ago, predating the PRNS & NPS takeover. That's the crux of the story. Then add falsified or bogus EIS Reports, and not allowing 30 days for public input. Sounds very illegal, if you ask me.

Talk Back: What should come of the Obama-Romney luncheon? Awkward! President Obama. Mitt Romney. A luncheon of rivals...Who can forget the two on the debate stage -- prowling, pointing -- the bitter rivalry spawning, tortured catch-phrases: "Romnesia." "Romney-hood." "Obama-loney." Now the man who accused the other man of "giving away free stuff" may just dine on Obama-loney. Jimmy Kimmel said: "For the last eight months, Mitt Romney has been saying nobody should get a free lunch. Now, he's going to the White House to have a free lunch." We laugh. But what if Mr. Obama asked Mr. Romney to play an important role going forward? Even the president has acknowledged Romney's skill in making things -- like the Olympics -- run better. But the track record for post-election pow-wows is not good. After the 2008 election, John McCain and Obama met and vowed to work together on economic issues. Look at them now: not exactly best buds. Just say the word Benghazi and -- ouch! Still, it could be a win-win for both me . ...
