THE EMPTY NEST

fWell I sit here on a quiet Friday morning sipping my coffee getting ready for the end of my work week and a couple of thoughts popped into my head. And I said lets share them with the world as the name of my post  is ‘Eyes of the World’

The Empty Nest. Yes my wife and I have hit that spot in life when our major purpose of parenthood is waning. Our roles are changing. Oh yes we still try to guide…

David battles Goliath

For those of you that follow me, you probably know that I do not Blog on a daily basis, well at least not daily when I am up to my eyeballs in alligators and am trying to drain the swamp (Read that work keeps me busy and away from the fun things in life).

Climbing Huashan (华山), China’s Most Heart-stopping Hike

For more photos from the hike to the top, explore the 华山 Mount Huashan location page and browse the #huashan and #华山 hashtags.

In China’s Shaanxi province, 120 kilometers (75 miles) west of Xi’an, the peaks of Mount Hua, or Huashan (华山), pierce the clouds, tempting adventurers to explore their heights.

The westernmost of China’s legendary Five Great Mountains, Huashan has stood as a destination for Daoist and Buddhist pilgramage for centuries—though the inaccessability of its peaks attracts only the most dedicated of pilgrims.

The southern peak reaches the highest altitude at 2,155 meters (7,070 feet), igniting the imaginations of thrill-seeking travellers. Home to an ancient monastery that in recent years has been converted into a tea house, the trail to the peak is one of the most dangerous in the world. Those brave enough to make the climb face steep and winding staircases carved into the cliffs and Huashan’s notorious plank road: a series of wooden planks affixed to the mountain’s face with no rails or barracades between hikers and the abyss below.

Spring has sprung

Well I was beginning to think that it wasn’t going to happen but ‘Spring has Sprung’ here in northern New Jersey. After this winter I also was beginning to think that Global Warming was a farce. Now after the past couple of winters when we had warmer weather and little snow I was a true believer in Global Warming. But this winter? After all we froze our fannies off here. It depends on who you…
