Boating Enthusiasts-Pardon Me, That’s No Replica!

River View Observer exclusive…Boat manufacturer powers past misconceptions and expands legacy by upgrading classic designs with contemporary technologies
At a recent boat show in New York City one vessel attracted a large crowd. Surrounded by a fleet of mass-produced fiberglass hulls was a mahogany runabout with long, sleek contours. Most assumed they were looking at a replica of a timeless classic. They were wrong.

The handcrafted 1920s-style boat was brand-new. Not that it wasn’t an original. The boat was built using the actual plans created by John Ludwig Hacker (1871-1961), the preeminent 20th Century designer of wooden pleasure crafts. The exterior look of the 24-foot rear-engine runabout was pure Hacker. But hidden in the engine hold and hull construction were contemporary marine technologies that have powered these legendary boats into modern times.

New Jersey Seagull -Caught In The Act-Could It Be One of the Soprano’s-This birds no stool pigeon

So, this gull walks into a store… Point Pleasant Beach , NJ

Thief Seagull Pictures, Images and Photos
It has developed the habit of stealing Doritos from a neighborhood convenience store.

(notice how the gull takes one last quick look to see if anyone is watching)

The seagull waits until the manager isn’t looking, and then walks into the store and grabs a snack-size bag of cheese Doritos.

Once outside, the bag gets ripped open and shared by other birds.

The seagull’s shoplifting started early this month when he first swooped into the store in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ, and helped himself to a bag of Doritos. Since then, he’s become a regular. He always takes the same type of chips.

The manager thinks it’s great because people are coming to watch the feathered thief make the daily grab and run, and that’s good for business, and especially since customers have begun paying for the seagull’s stolen bags of Doritos because they think it’s so funny. However, the manager did say, ‘This is New Jersey , and if that seagull starts to grab a 6-pack of ‘Bud’ to go along with the Doritos, I may have to put a stop to it.’

When Walt Disney wrote to a Minnesota man on November 29, 1935, he never dreamed what that letter would be worth one day. Typed on his “Silly Symphony” letterhead, with a large Mickey Mouse in orange and black, it is today something of a holy grail walt-disney-silll-symphonyfor Disney collectors.

For six years, Disney’s “Silly Symphony” cartoons won Academy Awards and brought about the birth of among many other characters, Donald Duck. Signed with his cartoonists’ pen, Walt Disney’s letter, with its Mickey Mouse envelope, is estimated to sell in the Nov. 12th
Yonkers auction of Cohasco, Inc., for $3,500-$5,000. Continue reading RARE LETTER OF WALT DISNEY’S “SILLY SYMPHONY” DISCOVERED

Would You Keep One of these Unusual Pets?- Others Do!!

Unusual Pets Get homes

skunkAn exotic or unusual pet is like a small part of untamed Nature. For some people, exotics remind them that the world contains millions of species that have evolved free from human intervention.

Take the Madagascar hissing cockroach, for instance. The very name sends chills up the spines of some people. Others, however, will be fascinated at the elaborate rituals these creatures have developed to defend territory, produce offspring, or simply to identify themselves. You don’t need to own a Bengal tiger to own an unusual pet. Unless a person has the right training, time, temperament, finances and home, owning such an animal is extremely ill advised.

The following unusual and exotic pets can be owned throughout the United States, Continue reading Would You Keep One of these Unusual Pets?- Others Do!!
