    Getting Married In Four Weeks And Terrified.

    Instead of a big, blown up local wedding, the boy and I are planning a destination wedding in Costa Rica next month. It's better this way, its good for the perfectionist control freak in me to relinquish control of all the details of planning a wedding. My view is that there is...

    Flying..

    As a USAF Veteran with over 9000 hours of flight time, I too feel the rush of flight. It's especially thrilling as you pull G's and fly like birds do.
