On Thursday, July 12 at 6:30 p.m.
What do the Jerome Park Reservoir, the Belmont Stakes and Winston Churchill have in common?

The Jerome Park Reservoir lies on a site that was originally a thoroughbred racetrack where the Belmont Stakes was first run between 1866 and 1890. It was built by Leonard Jerome who partnered with financier August Belmont and others to build it in 1866. Then the city took over the land to create a new reservoir for the "New Aqueduct" [Croton Aqueduct].

Where does Churchill fit in? Was he a jockey maybe?
No, Leonard Jerome was his grandfather.

During this event, these children will have the opportunity to celebrate all these missed holidays, at once.

The Sound of Music turns fifty today. This is one of our greatest and most enduring major motion pictures, with raindrops on roses and seven of the cutest kids.

The film featured breathtaking views of the Austrian Alps. And a stupendous score by the greatest songwriting team of Broadway's Golden Age. The sum of these parts, and so much more.

The Sound of Music premiered in New York on March 2, 1965 and went on to win five Academy Awards, including best picture. And this classic movie continues to defy all cynics.

HOW TO IDENTIFY A JACK @$$

Idea

Have you ever been outdoors enjoying the weather only to have to worry about...

An idiot driving over the posted speed limit near a public school, playground, church, community center, museum, or any other place where young people and old folks gather for spiritual, educational, or recreational reasons.

The next time you see this Jack @$$ placing our lives as well as their own lives in danger, while wasting gasoline.... Take a photo of their license plate, or write it down and immediately report it to your local police department, or to a public safety officer.
