Anyway, it was a perfect day starting with the rocket launch around 7:15am and then the climb at 1pm. It was great to see my friends Ken and Dede Smith especially since Ken will be celebrating his 60th birthday this weekend! Come October Ken will take his reign as the President of the Florida Lighthouse Association and I am excited to say he has lots of plans for the future of the FLA!
You can the lighthouse on the left. It was original constructed in 1848, but due to shore erosion it was 1.5 miles inland. It was relit at its current location in 1868.
I was told in advance that the lighthouse was still not complete and therefore we could only climb as high as the third deck. That is the reasoning behind my pouty pie face (BTW that was a nickname for when I was upset.....sad meggiepie = pouty pie...lol) in the picture. The sign says STAIRS ARE CLOSED :(

Today was the annual Palm Beach County Science Symposium. This is where the educational community comes together to pump one another up for the school year. This year was unlike any other as Palm Beach County School District inducted Jane Hart into the Hall of Fame (by the way she is the first member!). We also had Dr Kenneth Miller as the Keynote speaker. He gave one of the best speeches I have ever heard regarding science. I was intrigued with every word that came out of his mouth.
The best part of the day was running into my former science teachers....Mrs Reyes (now Bellodoumo) and Mrs Mooney. They were my book end science teachers as I had Mrs Reyes for 9th grade Earth Space Science and Mrs Mooney for Senior year Physics. Mrs Mooney also taught my brother when he was a junior. It was definitely worth the early morning drive to catch up with two of the people who motivated me to pursue a career in the sciences! I hope I can have the same impact on today's youth as these two teachers did on me!

Saturday July 31st marked the 3d Annual Monsters in the Morning Celebrity Bowl A Rama! This event was created by Rock Pink ( http://www.rockpink.com/) and combined with Real Radio 104.1 to raise over $36,000 in the effort to raise breast health awareness and donate funds to local breast cancer programs. Last year, this event was my first non-media appearance of my reign and I witnessed first hand the power a community can make on behalf of an organization. Every year the program gains strength and I cannot wait to join forces again next year!
My crowning moment! haha.....J/K I am the worst bowler ever. Never broke 100, but as soon as that crown popped up on the screen, I had to figure out a way to be 'crowned' :)
Girl" key chain to make an ultra cool earring.
I never back down from a challenge. When the competition from BJs challenged me to an arm wrestling match, I put on my mean-mugging face and it was "on". Needless to say I lost, but if you had been there you would know I put on one heck of a fight!
