Big Apple Helicopter Tour of New York
30 June 2011
The tour lasts around fifteen minutes, which may not sound very long, but the agility of the helicopter along with its unrivalled access from the air, means that you’ll get to see all of the attractions during that time. You will be able to see some of the tallest buildings at their finest, rather than straining your neck trying to look up at them. To top it off, you sit in your own private cocoon, without anyone trying to barge past you or ask you to move along.
You’ll start at New York’s Downtown Heliport, near the financial centre of Wall Street. Your flight will take you past the World Financial Centre, the Art Deco grandeur that is the Chrysler Building and the iconic Empire State Building, although giant apes climbing up the side may not be available.

New York City Harbour Lights Night Cruise
30 June 2011
The best way to witness and understand this is to take a night time cruise. Make your way to Pier 83 and step aboard your vessel. Here you can sit in comfort and marvel as your host guides you with a full commentary of your journey.
You can sit and watch the sun setting and the moon rising over the Manhattan Skyline. As darkness descends you can watch the reflection of the city lights as you view the riverside landmarks. Some of the sights on the tour include the Brooklyn Bridge, the Ellis Island immigration centre and the Statue of Liberty herself. Some 12 million immigrants passed by Liberty and went through Ellis Island between 1892 and 1954, making it one of the major points of entry for migrants entering America.

Charlie Sheen it would appear can either give a performance that will thrill and entertain an audience or if you are one of the unlucky people who saw his show in Atlantic City, he can give a performance that will leave you feeling so bored you just have to leave the theatre.
The reviews after the show were dire. The words ‘boring’ and ‘monotonous’ were on just about every reviewers lips and Sheen proved once again that sometimes he just does not have either anything of interest to say or share with an audience who thought that they were coming to get entertained by this world famous now maybe ex actor.
The critiques were brutal and to some extent Sheen did deserve this rather vitriolic reaction from them. He had after all disappointed a lot of people who had paid quite a hefty price for a ticket to be entertained by him. But there were signs on the wall that not everyone rates Sheen in this new role of entertainer that he is sometimes good at but then very often not, as there were plenty of empty seats right from the start of his performance and there were a lot more after the interval with many of the audience not even bothering to return to get bored a second time round in the same evening.

City review of Lake Havasu City
04 June 2011
Lake Havasu itself was created in 1938 when Parker Dam was built in the Colorado River. This followed the creation of our significant lakes such as Lake Mohave (at David Dam) and Lake Mead (at Hoover Dam). Of all of these lakes on the Colorado River, Lake Havasu currently has the highest levels of nitrate and uranium.
The city gain world wide exposure in 1968, when it purchased London Bridge from the City of London for $2.5 million. Over the course of three years, the bridge was taken apart piece by piece and reassembled on the opposite side of the Atlantic from where it originated. The whole operation cast a further $7 million and since it’s opening in 1971, has become a major tourist attraction.

Classic Cars 1988 Aston Martin V8 Volante
01 June 2011
The DBS was developed during the mid to late sixties and was put into production in 1968 with the six-cylinder engine from the DB6 in place. This was because the specially developed V8, designed by automotive genius Tadek Marek, was still undergoing tests to ensure complete reliability. The engine eventually appeared in 1970 and gave the DBS the speed to match its style. Over time this style evolved, most noticeably when the front changed from having quad-lights, to just two.
However by the mid-1980’s, it was clear that this range of cars was quickly becoming outdated. The final Series 5 evolution of the range was launched at the 1986 New York International Auto Show and featured a compact Weber/Magnetti Marelli electronic fuel injection system.
