if you intend to shop for a diamond, make sure you get all details written out in full and ask for certified diamonds. It's also wise for you to read up at http://beyond4cs.com/2014/03/dubai-or-antwerp/ before you even start shopping there.

This missile site looks familiar. I was about 11 years old when my father (Tec. Sgt. William M Walizer) was a missile maintenance supervisor. I recall riding with my parents to the site to drop my father off at the gate, 1964-1965.

This "yacht hotel" left several years ago and is now, I think, in Gibraltar. A new "yacht hotel" arrived last year (2014) and is moored further to the west. The area where the old hotel used to be has been developed and is now a part of Excel.

TROTER pictureHarrison Ford's Plane
I took a closer look at this and the wingtips are not right. The P22 has more rounded wingtips So this is probably not a Ryan P22 Recruit or Harrison Ford's plane.
TROTER @ 2015-03-09 03:29:16
TROTER pictureHarrison Ford's Plane
This looks like it could be a P22 but the engine cowl and tail is not the right color for Harrison Ford's plane. Engine cowl on Ford's plane is dark red and half the vertical stab is red/white horizontal strips also the prop isn't the right color either. It's possible that there are covers over the tail and the engine cowl, it's hard to tell. Or it could be pre-restoration. But Ford is known for hangering his planes. Great find though and is a definite possibility that it is his plane.

The 1970s house has not been knocked down. It's has been remodeled quite a bit but still stands at 615 Idlewyld Dr. Fort Lauderdale, FL. Some websites erroneously have it as 637 Idlewyld and that house has in fact been torn down and replaced with a mansion. So the home lives. Maybe one day I'll get rich and buy it.

Original comment may be out of date, but the focused submarine is definitely not Typhoon. Typhoon class submarines have their bridge in the back and are longer (170 m while the one on the picture appears to be around 120 m). I believe this is one of the new Yasen class submarines.

Hi Paolo, I am sorry to hear about the death of you father in law.I was a member of a band called Pandoras Box who played many times at the Flamingo Club in the 70's and most probably would have met him . Unfortunately I don't have many photos of that time, I was too busy enjoying myself. We stayed in the Complesso Turistico Averno in Pozzuoli and went to Arco Felice many times. I think the Damiani brothers owned the Averno.
I hope you find what you are looking for. Also if anyone else...

jdubble07 pictureLargest Cashew Tree in the World
Guessing you didn't read the Wiki page. The spread over a hectare of land was, unlike other trees, created by the tree's outwards growth which, when bent towards the ground (because of their weight), their branches tends to take new roots where it touches the ground. This may be seen in the images of the interior. It is now difficult to distinguish the initial trunk from the rest of the tree.
