The Eve of The Trip

It's almost midnight and I'm working on packing for a very well deserved 2 week vacation in Europe. It's a daunting task.

This time tomorrow Ken and I will be flying on an Airbus 333 heading to Rome, which is where our adventures will begin and end.

I'll try to keep you as updated as I can.

Stunning Aurora Borealis

The bright dancing lights of the aurora are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. They are known as 'Aurora borealis' and are clearly a stunning spectacle.

Hope Ahead

The 22nd annual American Airlines Celebrity Golf and Tennis Tournament took place last weekend in Carlsbad, California, raising more than $250,000 for the Susan G. Komen Young Investigators Grant Program, which funds research for metastatic breast cancer, an incurable form of the disease.

American honored 16 employee survivors and co-survivors at the event.

“It was such a memorable and beautiful weekend. I was so honored to participate and share my story,” said DFW-based flight attendant Lenard Blackwell.
