On a Lighter Note

Have you ever participated in a physically or mentally challenging activity?
I climbed Angels Landing in Zion National Park. It was worth hiking the steep switchbacks and navigating the sheer drop-offs with the help of the chains bolted into the stone cliff to reach the top and see the spectacular views of Zion Canyon.

Have you visited an excellent museum?
The Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art on the campus of Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, was an enjoyable cultural experience.

Have you ever met anyone famous?
It was great fun meeting legendary Coach Howard Schnellenberger when he was the head football coach at my alma mater, FAU. In just seven years, he built our football program from scratch into the youngest program ever to receive an invitation to an NCAA bowl game, and the Owls won!
