It's a twister with teeth!
Good news SHARKNADO fans.  They'll be more sharks in the air next summer!  SHARKNADO 3 has already been given the green light.  Keep your eyes to the skies.  Maybe sharks will hit PA!

As we recover from Thursday night's shark attack on NYC, here's my favorite lines from SHARKNADO 2.


Tara Reid:  The shark kept chasing me, like he knew who I was.
Ian Ziering:  He didn't know who you were.  If he did, he would've run the other way.

Ian:  Anyone plays me in a movie, it's gonna be me!

Matt Lauer:  I don't want to alarm anyone, but there is a concern that New York could be facing a Shark storm.

Al Roker:  Think of it this way, this is a twister...with teeth.

Ian:  Even the Sharknados are tougher in New York.

Mark McGrath:  You know what it just did, don't you?  It jumped the shark!

Robert Klein:  This is the big apple.  When something bites us, we bite back.

Ian:  They're sharks.  They're scary.  And no one wants to be eaten.

We Rocked Knoebels


What a GREAT day of fun we had at Knoebels yesterday!  Early Thursday we filled a bus (THANK YOU JZ Tours) wiith littles that are on the waiting list with Big Brother/Big Sister of the Bridge.  The idea:  give kids on the waiting list a taste of what the mentoring program is all about.



Right after lunch, we let everyone loose at America's largest free admission amusement park.  It's Friday morning, and I'm still recovering!!!



That's my new buddy Dylan as we started our trip up The Flume.



I didn't get the memo about bringing a towel.



We helped celebrate the Twister rollercoaster's 15th birthday...by screaming & yelling.


I would've been lost without these 2...Liz and Pilar from BBBS!


Alan Stout from BBBS presented my boss OD and I with a few tokens of his appreciation. 

There are SO MANY kids just like the littles we had on this trip waiting for a match with BBBS.  That is why there is such a desperate need for volunteers to join the mentoring program.  Becoming a Big Brother has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life.  And I promise it will have the same impact on you!

I can't urge you enough to get involved with this program.  A few short hours a month can have an amazing effect on a young kid's life here in NEPA.

If you'd like more info on how to become a Big Brother or Big Sister CLICK THIS LINK or call 800.955.4376.

Have a GREAT weekend!

Great job Scranton!!!


Wow!  It was a sea of orange at Nay Aug Park in Scranton Sunday morning for the 1st Annual Frankie's Voice 5K Walk/Run.


Frankie of course is Frankie Bonacci, who was brutally murdered 1 year ago.  What a show of support and solidarity.


Lissa & I were so proud to be a part of this event.  Way to go Scranton!!!  And GREAT JOB by Frankie's family & friends and all the volunteers that made this special day possible.


We're still waiting for the final total as far as participants, but I can remember getting passed by a runner with the number 838!

Again, AWESOME JOB!!!  I love to see the community come together and turn a negative into a positive event like today.

You Can't Take a Bad Photo in Maine


Sue and I just got back from an amazing week in her home state, Maine.  What a great road trip!
And yes, YOU CAN'T TAKE A BAD PHOTO IN MAINE!!!



Look closely.  Those are seals or sea dogs as they call them in Maine.  Our captain pointed them out as we took a day trip to Monhegan Island.



This incredible view is on Monhegan Island, an island accessible only by boat.  And as you can imagine, this point has been a favorite of painters for years.



The majestic Island Inn on Monhegan.  This classic Maine hotel has been on this spot since 1907.



The view from the porch at the Island Inn.



It wouldn't be Maine without lobster.  This is one of many little fishing villages you can find along the coast.



By far, the best lobster roll we ever had, came out of this little food truck in Cape Elizabeth.



One of 7 lighthouses spotted on our river boat cruise along the Kennebec.



A little roadside Americana in Midcoast Maine.



And our kids, Frankie & Sammi had just as much fun as we did!



If you are ever planning a trip to Maine, feel free to give me a shout at rocky@985krz.com
