OHIO STATE MARCHING BAND
SALUTE TO HOLLYWOOD
Ohio State University has taken
marching bands to a new level.
And in honor of all the Thanksgiving Day
college football games today,
this is a video tribute to the greatest
college marching band in the U.S.
At the Ohio State/Penn State halftime show,
they treated the audience to a
"tribute to Hollywood",
including Superman, Harry Potter
and Jurassic Park,
when they brought T-Rex to life.
You won't believe this marching band performance.
Have a look:

A FAMILY PORTRAIT
This is the time
for family portraits.
To remember and preserve
what we cherish most . . .
I love shooting family portraits,
can you tell?
(I shot this beautiful family
last weekend . . . which one
do I like? I love them all.)
The most important thing in life
is . . . family!

Just overwhelmingly delicious

There's a new donut shop in town,
and it's STRANGE
(and that's a good thing.)
STRANGE DONUTS has been open for just 6 weeks
and it's already on "America's Best Donut Shop" list.
6 creative and unusual donut flavors
are featured each morning,
in addition to classic favorites.
And customers line up early to get their favorites
(open everyday at 6:00am)
until they sell out.
Crowd favorites include the Campfire
(with toasted marshmallow, of course),
the Elvis (banana cream with chocolate sprinkles),
Apple Bacon and Red Velvet.
Owners Corey Smale & Jason Bockman
are thrilled with their success,
and promise "strange flavors" in the future.
Strange Donuts is located in downtown Maplewood,

AT MISSOURI BOTANICAL GARDEN
Our beautiful botanical garden
has been transformed into a
winter wonderland of
holiday lights and electric decorations.
And it all happens at night!
Christmas trees, solar powered lights,
floating color orbs, fantasy tunnels,
sparkling garden mazes,
performing snow nymphs.
A great way to kick off the holidays
with night lights at Missouri Botanical Garden.

ONE PICTURE CAN CHANGE
A PHOTOGRAPHER'S LIFE
Dan Farrell of Long Island, New York
(now 83 years old)
holds the historic photo he took
of John F. Kennedy, Jr.
saluting at his father's funeral.
This single photograph,
taken as the president's coffin
departed the funeral mass
near St. Matthew's Cathedral,
in Washington, D.C.
(3 days after the November 22 assassination)
brought Farrell international fame
and haunted him till this day.
Watching young JFK Jr. salute his father
was, says Farrell,
"the saddest thing I've ever seen
in my whole life."
(Today marks the 50th anniversary
of the tragic assassination of
our 35th U.S. President.)
