    I think Chicken Little was the crowd favorite - a new balloon, a unique balloon, a tall balloon. And, I think he was running through the city screaming, "The sky is falling! The sky is falling!" Posted by Picasa

    Scooby-Doo was by far the biggest and most impressive balloon. Look at the size of it compared to those buildings (and those people on the ground)! Posted by Picasa

    Turkey anyone? Here's one of the most popular floats every year. Posted by Picasa

    Macy's Parade!

    I know I've been slacking on my blog... I just am busy with other things (and lazy with the blog). But, I had a fabulous time at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC on Thursday. I was fortunate enough to watch the parade on the 4th floor of an office building overlooking Broadway and 37th Street. Nice! (Thanks to my friend Dave's church - their offices are located there).

    I've included a couple of photos, for more ask me for my album and I'll email you a link. Also, I might have more to say about the parade later... on why it represents all that is America.

    Thank you to our Veterans

    On Veterans Day, we still have thousands of soldiers in Iraq, fighting not just for our freedoms, but for those who are yet to gain them so that we may all live in peace.

    Corporal Jeffrey B. Starr, a Marine who was Killed in Action in the last two weeks, left a letter behind to his girlfriend. Here's what it said:

    "Obviously if you are reading this then I have died in Iraq. I kind of predicted this, that is why I'm writing this in November. A third time just seemed like I'm pushing my chances. I don't regret going, everybody dies but few get to do it for something as important as freedom. It may seem confusing why we are in Iraq, it's not to me. I'm here helping these people, so that they can live the way we live. Not have to worry about tyrants or vicious dictators. To do what they want with their lives. To me that is why I died. Others have died for my freedom, now this is my mark."

    A Thank You to our Veterans: You are our nation's heroes.
