Would this be the samllest island inthe world? I found this picture when I was searching for more information on Los Roques. This group of islands are located at about 85 miles north of Caracas very close to "La Orchila". There was a time when I really wanted to go there. I could even include this place in my "Bucket List". If you want to learn more about "Los Roques" there is a good website: http://www.los-roques.com/index.htm The reason I started looking for more information on Los Roques this morning was that I saw some of the pictures that my nephew Pedro Rodriguez posted on his FB. Take a look, the sand is white and the water transparent.
I received these beautiful pecan nuts from Dane Hine. He told me that the property where these pecan nuts came from was originally owned by George McKinstry who was often visited by his good friend Steven F. Austin. SFA is considered the Father of Texas. He came to Texas in 1825 with 300 families (The term The Old Three Hundred is used to described them) and settled what is today Brazoria County. Steven F. Austin died of pneumonia, in this property on West Columbia on December 27, 1836.
The USS New York (LPD21) is a stealth ship that was built by utilizing 7 1/2 tons of scrap steel collected from the World Trade Center site. The ship's motto is "Strength forged through sacrifice. Never forget!" God Bless America!
