I'm looking forward to this one. It's been five years since Nik Wallenda walked a tightrope across Niagara Falls from the American side to the Canadian side while millions around the world watched the live TV broadcast.
There's another stunt planned for this summer, but this time it won't involve Nik Wallenda. His wife Erendira will hang by her teeth from a helicopter as it flies over the Falls.
One of the wonders of the world basically sits in our backyard. Here's a little thank you to all the people/shows that had a little time showcasing our Niagara Falls with our Top Memorable Moments at The Falls...
My dear friend Ellen is in town. She's up from the Orlando, Fla. area visiting friends and family for a few weeks, along with seeing some familiar sites around town and a few new ones...like Canalside. Guess what she saw tonight and snapped a picture of?
On Monday (July 23), we took a poll asking if you thought that Nik Wallenda still needed to pay the extra $25,000 that Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster says he owes the city.

I was sitting in our backyard watching Pearl on her dog run, a cable that stretches from the house to a tree in the backyard (very convenient on those cold winter mornings!). As I looked at the cable, it suddenly hit me, and in a
I have to admit, I was impressed. Nik Wallenda's wire walk across Niagara Falls was a much better event than I imagined it would be. The presentation by ABC started out a little slow, but the tension they built during the special was worth the payoff. And the visuals they presented were spectacular.
All that live in Western New York are so fortunate to have one of the greatest wonders of the world in our backyard. It's really amazing that some of us do take for granted the fact that we have Niagara Falls right around the corner.
Over the last couple of months I have had the opportunity to take some out of town visitors to Niagara Falls, all of which have never visited the Falls before...
