HSV

Huntsville airport is pretty modern. The main lobby has a piano. It has direct flight to DC. One of the army branch was moving to Huntsville years ago but the move wasn’t too successful due to not many people wanted to relocate.

An afternoon by the beach

Although LGA is unbelievably shabby but once airborne, the sunshine made me feel a day on the beach. In December no less. This isn’t the first time I sit by the window.

The bird view of New York

NTC’s new roof. A nice ride to Chicago.

LGA

LaGuardia Airport is shockingly third world airport.

Unbelievable … but it’s true. The NTC is getting a roof.

ORD

I’ve been to Chicago O’Hare International Airport many times. It looks decent and in shape, especially after LGA.

Beth Moses Jewish Cemetery in Farmingdale, NY

1240 Wellwood Ave.
West Babylon, NY 11704

There are many cemeteries on Wellwood Avenue in West Babylon. I was late because of wrong turn but the ceremony was a little late. The stones are ‘calling card’ indicating a visit by someone.

By tradition, Jewish burial the dead the following day and followed by a week long Shiva.

Benton Lane Winery @ Landmark

image
The winery is in Willamnette Valley, Oregon. Pinot noir. I found it in the landmark wine store on 23rd Street in the city.

167 W 23rd St New York, NY 10011-2404 wine on 23

It reminds me of Marilyn Monroe wine.

U.S. Space & Rocket Center

Short for Rocket Center
One Tranquility Base,
Huntsville, AL 35805 • (256) 837-3400 • 1-800-637-7223

At the entrance, there is the grave site for Miss Baker (wiki) who was sent to the space and came back alive. She also made the front cover of Life, the magazine.

A room at the site is displaying some jewelry by a local artist.

My uncle was a retiree of the Center. As soon as we pulled into the parking lot, his mild demeanor changed. He became very animated, excited, thrilled, just like a kid in a candy land. This is a passion, period.

I fake the orange suit and scaled the wall.
