Frank Cerabino (pronounced chair--a--BEE--no) grew up on Long Island, N.Y., and graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., in 1977. He spent five years in the Navy, reaching the rank of lieutenant and serving as a public affairs officer aboard an aircraft carrier. After leaving the Navy, he received a master's degree in journalism at Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill. He worked at the City News Bureau.

Told yah, its not 'sarah-bee-no'.

The Japanese dance troupe 'Enra' combines light, music and state-of-the-art technology in their wondrous performances. This performance entitled "Pleiades", or the Greek name for the Seven Sisters star cluster, was directed by notable Japanese artist Nobuyuki Hanabusa.

Pi

What makes 3/14/15 so special for pi fans is that it is the only day this century that will have the first five digits of pi -- 3.1415. Since the next digits are 92653, most people have chosen 9:26 p.m. to mark the ultimate pi moment. (Sticklers can wait for the clock to read 53 seconds.)

Snake Season


All these photos were taken this morning from Clubhouse bridge. I saw more than 7 snakes searching for warm spots between the 'rocks'. I am told that because they are swimming on the surface, they are probably cottonmouths (poisonous). Large family of young ones.

My Association also has a 3ft black racer that likes to sun itself around our patio - a good snake that eats palmetto bugs etc.
