Longtime City Island resident Alex Schibli became the highest bidder when the Rat Island auction ended this afternoon. The Swiss born engineer will pay 73 year old Edmund "Red" Brennen a total of $160K for the one plus acre island, which is made up entirely of rock. Red, who now lives in Jupiter, Florida, and is a former City Islander, reportedly paid $5K for Rat Island in 1972. He's pictured on the right wearing the biker suspenders.

Given the unpredictability of life, some would think twice before taking their beloved classic vehicle to a caravan, or antique car show because it is always a risk. First there are all those people wandering around with their kids, drinks, food and such. There's also a chance of a scratch, or a smudge. Or even the possibility of a dent if you're really unlucky. But the folks who participated today were as lucky as they could be. The weather was also pleasant.

You can do it in the shower. You can also do it while you're getting ready for bed. Just make sure you do it at least once a month. Especially try starting it during this breast cancer awareness month.

First of all, experts stress to get familiar with your breasts. Look for lumps, changes in size, shape or feel, and to see if there is any fluid.

Every woman should intimately know her breasts and surrounding areas so she can be aware of changes, according to doctors representing the American Cancer Society.
