Halifax, Nova Scotia
And if you don’t believe this is a real picture of the Halifax Harbor,
here is a picture of me with a ship’s captain
The USA made these things to go in the water and on land during the Vietnam War. A tour company bought a few, did some redecorating (no 50 caliber machine guns) and now uses them to provide city and harbor tours. I was in Vietnam in 1966-67, but we just took a row-boat with an outboard motor down the Saigon River.

BOOK OF THE WEEK
How many times do you need to hear, if you don’t have your health, nothing else matters. If you are fortunate enough to be able to retire, your new full-time job is either regaining your fitness or keeping it. But please don’t wait until you retire to work on your health.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK
Crazy Rich (2018)
Check out the trailer and see if this is a movie you want to watch. I enjoyed it. Also, for those of you who have never been out of the USA, here is a chance to see how the USA infrastructure compares to other countries.

ART OF THE WEEK
Even something as utilitarian as a shed can be art, if done artfully.
EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
In America, you can be anyone you want to be.
Korla Pandit (September 16, 1921 – October 2, 1998), born John Roland Redd, was a musician, composer, pianist, organist and television pioneer of national notability.
A pathbreaking musical performer in the early days of television, Redd is known for Korla Pandit’s Adventures In Music; the show was the first all-music program on television.He also performed live and on radio and made various film appearances, becoming known as the “Godfather of Exotica”.
Beginning in the late 1940s, Redd claimed to be “Korla Pandit”, a French-Indian musician from New Delhi; however, Redd was actually African-American.
Redd maintained the Korla Pandit persona–both in public and in private–until the end of his life. (Source: Wikipedia)
THIS WEEK’S JOKE
This is all you need to know, to be certain the earth isn’t flat.
I don’t think these commercials represent powerlifting gyms,
but I find them very funny.
Warning: This book will not change your life, only you can do that.
