Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!

Don't forget the fireworks display which is taking place at Casino Beach tonight at midnight! I'll be there shivering!

And talk about shivering, maybe I'll see (or photograph) you at the traditional Polar Bear Plunge which takes place tomorrow afternoon at 2:00 p.m. behind Paradise Bar and Grill. At least it will be a bit warmer for tomorrow's event than it was last year!

In case you can't wait for all the excitement, you can check out photos of last year's Polar Beach Plunge on Pensacola Beach by clicking HERE.

I have one last quote I would like to share with you in 2008. You'll laugh when you see the source. It is not Muir or Lindbergh or Thoreau or any of my favorite authors/poets. It is, however, something important to remember when you are following your dreams:

"All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you're not good enough or strong enough or talented enough; they will say you're the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. THEY WILL TELL YOU NO, a thousand times no, until all the no's become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly. AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES."
