Very cool to find out that we have the official Boxing Hall of Fame right here in Las Vegas.
You can see their website here: Boxinghalloffame.com
It appears that FB is killing blogging

How are you sir? My name is Stephen Pretto Rossillo.

…and of course many more.
I am from the NYC tri-state area — Ridgefield, Bergen county, NJ.
Talk to you soon.

“The square root of your height (or elevation) in feet times 1.2 equals the distance to your horizon in miles.
So, how high would Sarah Palin’s house have to be inorder to see Russia?:
How high above the Earth’s surface do you have to be to see a point 1130 km away along the Earth’s surface? If we start plugging numbers into myDistance To Horizon Calculator, we see that the answer is 101425.88 meters. You have to go 101 km (63 miles!) above Wasilla before you can see Russia. You can knock 104 meters off of that if you like to account for Wasilla’s elevation above sea level.
