Hello everyone, and farewell to 2014! As you countdown the last minutes of the year with your loved ones, your favorite TV personalities, and those guys who somehow got into the party but you are not sure who invited them, I hope you take a moment to reflect on your successes and how to build upon them, your losses and what you learned from them, and how there is usually a third thing you can add to just about anything that appears to have only two options, if you just think outside the box and accept the possibility that it may be so crazy it JUST...MIGHT...WORK!
reminder to those of you who may be curious about what sort of skills
and conditioning you may need to compete in the full-contact medieval
armored combat that I do, there will be a seminar in exactly that this
Saturday from 3-5 PM at C1 MMA and Crossfit in Brooklyn. Fee is $15. you
can pay at the door or in advance, and you can get more details at http://www.newyorkknightscombat.com/class.
So happy New Year everyone! And may it be the best and brightest so far!

In WWII, my uncle, Carl R. Berrier, served as a US Army engineer in the 1st Army, building bridges across France to the border of Germany. He was wounded by one of the first fighter jets. My father, Claude Jean Pierre LaCoudre, was a boy growing up in Brittany at the same time. I don't think they ever met until my mom took my father to visit the family in Florida when I was a baby.
