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

video

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.) It is so nice to observe the awesome power of nature!

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!

Secret of the Most Beautiful Christmas Tree Discovered
Ben Vitale

















For decades I have had the honor of having the most beautiful Christmas tree, right in my own living room. I have the honor of having the most beautiful Christmas tree every year because of my wife’s expertise in the art of selecting Christmas trees. The trees that my wife has selected through the years were always perfect; at least “I thought so!” I must admit that I have not paid attention to certain small details in the past. I was not fully cognoscente of the fact that a “Charlie Brown” Christmas tree can be made to look like the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center, in NYC, with a little bit of help! Yes Marie does have an aptitude for selecting beautiful Christmas trees, but I did not realize that she gave the trees a bit of Tender Loving Care; just like the TLC a women gets when she goes to her Beautician! LOL!

Well folks I just can’t remove the smile from my face since I found the evidence beneath my Christmas Tree! This year I did indeed pay attention to the small details and discovered a pair of Garden Clippers, under our Christmas tree! Marie cut off the long scraggly "Charlie Brown” Christmas tree branches so that our Christmas tree now looks like a perfect triangle! Yes it is as pretty as the one in Rockefeller Center! LOL!

OK… Our tree was indeed beautiful when we purchased it and Marie made it look even better. “Breathtaking!” LOL! Yesss! Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Kwanzaa “to all and to all Good Night!”

Please read the article that was published on Patch a few years back in order to bring a new perspective to this article. http://patch.com/new-york/patchogue/bp--the-most-beautiful-christmas-tree-on-long-island

Santa is now on the Internet Directly from the North Pole!
Ben Vitale
I’m so excited! I have discovered that I still believe in Santa Clause! Yesssss! Over Five million people have discovered Santa’s new “Reindeer Cam” site on the Internet! You must look carefully because Santa only appears on Camera with his Reindeer, at specific times! Santa feeds the Reindeer three times a day; look at the “FAQ” tab for the schedule! I have not seen Santa’s Sled yet; I guess that his elves are still working on it, in preparation for his long journey on Christmas Eve! Yessssss.

You might want to have Santa actually send a letter to your child; just fill out the form along with Five dollars for postage! LOL!

Im so excited; I believe my Christmas season has actually began because I looked at Santa’s North Pole “Reindeer Cam.” I believe that I have actually heard Alvin the Chipmunk talking to me directly from the North Pole! Wow! LOL! Yessssss! How cool is that?

There is also a Facebook link on this site where you can read wonderful comments made by other people that are also looking at Santa and his reindeer!  

OK! I’m sure that your children would really love to see Santa’s Reindeer and Santa! Be sure to get posted on Santa’s “Nice List!” Yesssssssss! Yo! Ho! Ho! “Merry Christmas to all; and to all good night!”
Please click the link below to see Santa! LOL!
