That's the End of Irene

So we made it through Hurricane Irene! Pure madness from the Earthquake that surprisingly shook the East Coast, leading up to the vicious Hurricane Irene, the East Coast had its share of natural occurrences for 2011. The good thing about it is that the East Coast had the chance to experience something many people who live here have never had the chance to experience before, even though they may not have been good experiences.

Hopefully we will not have to experience these circumstances again, but when Mother Nature is pissed off , she is a bitch.

Did You Feel The Earthquake ?

Yesterday's earthquake was a new experience to many New Jersey and New York natives. The sad part is not everyone had the opporunity to feel it and I was one of them.

Hearing the news that there had been an earthquake and I had not even the slightist clue, upset me. It was not like feeling an earthquake is on my bucket list or anything, but it would have been an experience and an exciting story to tell my kids.

Living on the east coast I may never have the opporunity to come in counter with another earthquake in my lifetime, so I feel like I missed out on something.

Today in History

On this day in 1943, LIFE magazine spotlighted a dance craze that was sweeping the U.S.A. -- the Lindy Hop. The Lindy was named after American aviation hero Charles A. Lindbergh; and began its entry into the American lifestyle in 1927. The Savoy Ballroom in Harlem, New York was really jumping when George ‘Shorty’ Snowden, one of the Savoy’s famous dancers, started doing twists, turns, jumps and twirls to the music of greats like Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Count Basie and Ella Fitzgerald. Snowden told everyone he was doing the Lindy Hop.
The jitterbug, swing or Lindy as it was called by white dancers became an integral part of Hollywood’s golden era and was picked up by the youth of America during WWII, as exhibited on the LIFE cover.
The Lindy Hop was still being danced in the 1950s to rock ’n’ roll at sock hops; and was the jump start for the dance styles of the 1960s and 1970s. In fact, people throughout the world still do the Lindy ... or Boogie Woogie, Rock ’n…

Did you miss me?

Hello Everyone! I know I have not updated lately, but I been very busy with my daughter's first birthday, and if that was not enough my laptop broke on me. But I am writing this post to let everyone know that I am back and ready to work.

Even though I seemed to be MIA , I really have been enjoying life with my family. As much as I want to work all the time, my daughter needs me and I have to be there for her first. So for her 1st birthday we celebrated all weekend. Jayla's birthday was actually on Friday August 5th , so her father and I took her to the Jenkinsons Aquarium in Point Pleasant , NJ. We had a great time and I would recommend anyone with small children to take them there. Jenkinson's Aquarium is good for small children because it is not big, but there are things to keep small children occupied. For more information on about the aquarium go to
