And to show that I do have a little culture in me. I was at the opening of The Pond ice rink at Bryant Park today.
Rosanne and I got to see the USS New York come home to NYC today. What an experience. It was great to see that ship come to our city. Rosanne also saw it dock next to the Intrepid and got some additional great shots of her. With some luck, we may even get tix to her commissioning on 11/7.
Here are a few videos of the USS New York, as it entered New York harbor this morning for the first time.

We had our Annual RNB Friends Holiday Lunch 2009 today. It was great to see everyone again. We once all worked very closely, and today we look forward to seeing one another at least once each year. I think it is a great tradition, and we all enjoyed seeing one another. Have a great year everyone, and see you all soon. Here are the RNB Friends Holiday Lunch 2009 pics @Flickr
We went to the wedding of my boy Johnny 5 and DD. DD persevered and finally hooked the boy after about 14 years trying. Congratulations guys, DD looked beautiful and Johnny 5 looked debonair. Now make some babies.... Here are John & Danielle Cantone wedding @Flickr and my standard pics of John & Danielle Cantone wedding.
What a great ceremony today for the NYPD Cadet Corps graduation @Flickr. Joe looked so handsome, and made us very proud. Commissioner Ray Kelly gave a very poignant speech, and congratulated them as they prepare to enter the Police Academy next week. He recalled how he began his distinguished career as a Cadet Corp member and was very gracious as he stood for pictures with all the graduates. Rosanne even managed to tell him how much she likes his son Greg Kelly from FOX5. Commissioner Kelly and Mayor Bloomberg will be swearing Joe and the other recruits in next Wednesday, so that's Joe's official start date as a New York City Police Officer. WOW !!! Afterwards Joe showed us the office he was working in. It is called DCPI and was the Public Information office. All the folks there commended Joe on his work performance, and congratulated me and Ro on the fine young man we raised. They said they will miss Joe a lot, he did great work for them. They were very sincere. Congratulations Joe, we Love You very much, and are very proud of you. You are a remarkable young man, and we can't express enough our pride in you. Here are my standard pics of Joe's NYPD Cadet Corps graduation.
Great news with Frank. We got home by about 1:00pm. Things went well, operation took less time than expected. Surgeon, Dr Dolan found and removed a fatty tumor mass near the knee cap. He believes this should resolve his problems. Frank did great in recovery, all the staff were nice, and helpful. Here are the pics from this long day @Flickr. Get well Frank. We love you very much. You did real good today son.

|My Presidential run is announced.|
Me and my honey just got back from Beijing and the Olympics. We worked our butts off, and nearly came in 4th in twirling. All in all, we are quite satisfied with our performance. NBC refuses to acknowledge twirling, so all you have is the video we took.
I also participated in the 17 story high dive free fall.
I've decided to get involved in the presidential election. Here's how it went.
