My family retired and relocated down South to Myrtle Beach, SC not too long ago and I was finally able to visit the new home and do some exploration of the area. All of the places that I got to see were perfect items for this lifestyle blog so here are some visuals from the St. John The Baptist Greek Orthodox Church that I got to see when we attended a Greek Fair being held on its property. There was music and food of the Greek nature and since one of the attendants to the church was talking to us I was able to walk around and snap plenty of photographs.
As you know, this little space on the Internet was created to be the home for all of the other adventures that I undertook outside of my main PiercingMetal.com site. For four years I have been loading in a wide variety of what I felt you would find interesting and depending on what the adventure was, there were those times where I would send the readers here from the PiercingMetal.com site. Well, today I am using PiericngKen.com to send you all over to the brand new and very excited to have in place “NEW PIERCINGMETAL.com” (queue dramatic music please).
Much like the site that you currently enjoy, I have installed WordPress in the PiercingMetal.com domain root and blew away the fashion in which you used to surf its content. I explain more in the link that clicking the logo will bring you to and I do hope you like it. There is so much more to be presented over there and don’t you worry, I love putting up different stuff about our city and the sights that I see around me over here and that will continue as well. Thanks for the interesting in both of these entertainment mediums.
So here I am in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina seeing my family after far too many months of not having done so. They retired down here last year and are keeping the kind of schedule that I am doing up in New York City and with my visit had lined out numerous activities that they themselves wanted to try. One the adventures was actually to ride in a scenic helicopter. Here is my Helicopter Adventure.
I had never been in a helicopter before so it was going to be interesting and yeah a little bit frightening since heights and I are just not something I easily deal with. As you can see the helicopters have a few different routes to take. The longer the tour, the more expensive the per person ride is going to be. I suggested that we take the shortest route since there was so much other stuff to do while I was here.
Everyone had to weigh in before the ride because the weight had to be in proper proportion. You didn’t want the helicopter to fly sideways now did you? I didn’t think so. Resultant of the weight-in, I sat in the back seats on the right-hand side. Hey here is our chopper.
“And the winner in the category for “Lead Actress In A Musical” goes to Miss Lena Hall for “Hedwig And The Angry Inch”!!!! (applause are thunderous) I am so excited to be putting this post up on the PiercingKen.com site because one of the things that I love doing with this blog is to showcase the talented people that I have had the pleasure of meeting during the course of my adventuring. Such was the case with singer/actress Lena Hall who I met when she was fronting a Retro-Rock sensation called “Cocaine The Band”. The music was awesome and the bands individual persona were very well thought out. I greatly enjoyed what this was presenting.
The other day I closed up a small series of posts about the Faberge Big Egg Hunt (and you can click that text if you didn’t see this enjoyable public art exhibit) and since I was in Rockefeller Center I decided to snap a quick couple of shots of their impressive Prometheus statue. He glides above a fountain and gazes over the ice skating rink and its quite the popular tourist attraction. It’s easy to see why this is the case.
