Taking photos of the Davis Park Casino from the Sandspit marina, across the Great South Bay, which is over two miles away! I keep taking the same photo under different lighting conditions. I use this technique to test cameras!

Looking through the bar window, I could actually see my spirit sitting at the bar drinking draft beer, and listening to 60's music. LOL!


Can you see any other spirits at the bar? Yesss! LOL!

I Just Went to Heaven! 
Ben Vitale



Fellow classmates please join 100 of your classmates on Facebook. Join Facebook! Ask your children to help you!

This afternoon I went to a wedding at the Beach Club Estates, Lake Ronkonkoma! A wonderful catering hall! I had my 50th wedding anniversary party in the new building that is nearest to the water. But this time I was directed to a room in another building. Please look at the photo!


Beautiful room, but I suddenly realized that I was standing on hallowed ground! Yesss! This room was the former location of the Lighthouse Hotel! OMG in 1960, I was bowling and drinking beer in that building! This personal warm feeling had come upon me... I had indeed returned to a location of my youth! LOL! Yesss!


This building is now used for a catering room and offices! I asked an employee about the Bowling Ally, and was advised that the Bowling Ally is still down stairs! Wow! The original Lighthouse Hotel was renovated and turned into a catering facility!


After the wedding was over my "spirit of youthful events," caused me to float out of that building with a big smile on my face! Yesss! I was in contact with a piece of my youth, and loved every minute of it! LOL! Smile!

Photos From Way Back Home on Long Island

Ben Vitale


The fisherman all wedged their fishing poles between the rocks at the Shinecock inlet! They then gathered around a cooler and started to drink beer. One fisherman from the group said to the gentleman in the photo " better check your pole it is moving!" He checked his pole and did indeed find a fish! LOL! A Seaweed fish! I am totally convinced that the Seaweed is conspiring against the fisherman! LOL! The only thing that they did not try is to use Coors Light as bait! LOL! Hey the fish know what is good! LOL!

Today Our Classmate Gail Rast Entertained at the Pindar Vineyard on Eastern Long Island.
Ben Vitale



 Today I went to the Pindar vineyard on Eastern long island to see Gail Rast, play with her band which is called Sahara. Gail is a graduate from the Sachem High School class of 1960. Gail's band played 60s and 70s music. I had a great time. The crowd had a great time! I told Gail to visit us on our Facebook alumni site! I believe that she has more engagements at the Pindar Winery. We Sachem Alumni must get together as a group, and visit Gail at the winery! We could have a Mini Reunion.

Ten Foot Waves at Smith Point, Long Island, NY
Ben Vitale

Hurricane Juaqin which is currently off the coast of Long Island is causing some really big waves to break on Fire Island, Long Island, NY. I saw a few waves that were about Ten feet high; the media says that the waves were 15 feet high! Hummm.... (Left click the big arrow, and then left click the small arrow to see the video. You should also left click the small box on the lower right hand portion of the video, to get a full screen display! Once the video is over, press the Escape key to return to the normal screen size.)

Members of the Sachem High School Alumni Group:

We have 130, members in this "Sachem High School Alumni Gazette," group (Blog). This Blog is like a newspaper; generally "read only." It is not conducive to carrying on a conversation!
You are currently looking at our Sachem Blog!

150 of our classmates from Sachem High School, also belong to our Facebook group which is called "Sachem Alumni 1959 - 1965," .https://www.facebook.com/groups/58645312298/  

Facebook is a read and talk site. So... 150 Sachem Alumni, our classmates, talk to each other daily; just as we did in high school.

It is so wonderful to talk to old friends! I actually talk to my classmates more now than I ever did when I went to Sachem! You guessed it... We became friends 50 years after graduation! This is wonderful!

So... Don't be afraid of Facebook!
