My personal memories of ,,,,,,,,my life !!!

And to put more personal things in my blog which as said is my life’s history here I come again, I have been told and finally realised my life has been very rich not just in travel but life’s accomplishements, and was given amongst other things recognition pins by many organisations which I have kept in a jewerly box, Therefore , here is a bit extra on me from my personal memories of,,,,,my life !!!,That is covering the France and U S A !!!  Hope you enjoy this bit of personal trivia as I.

As have several posts on them just let me tell you briefly my living working life, Looong ago as a child left Punta Brava, Havana, Cuba, It was a journey to freedom with an intermediate stop in Madrid, Spain before arriving in total freedom in Perth Amboy New Jersey, From there went to Univ studies and eventually moved to live in Daytona Beach/Ormond by the Sea Florida, The world tour ho ho ho,continue to North Miami, and then Hialeah while working in Miami Florida, To follow went up to Miramar, Silver Lakes division, Broward county, Finally , made the move back to Europe married to a loving Frenchie and settle in wonderful amazing, beautiful Versailles, Yvelines 78 Île de France region of my belle France which after several years’s visits came to live permanently as a French citizen to boot, The road did not stop there as continue to Brec’h in the Morbihan breton dept 56 of Bretagne/Brittany region and finally purchase a house again in current Pluvigner where I am on my way to 10 years living ! Breaking my record of 5,5 years per residence time !!!

Now let me tell you about the main reason of this post when looking at my personal items found me some pins that tells a bit more about me and the trajectory in life, These are

While in Daytona Beach went to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University yes you know it the «Harvard of the skies » and was recognised with several pins, as well as meeting Pierre Henri Gagey the then president of Maison Jadot Burgundy wines of excellence, Got me more involved in wines and did visit his house in Beaune later on on a special personal tour of the property by his then Sales Manager for Europe Marc Dupin, Memories forever !!

I was heavily involved in politics then and was very active winning some recognition by the presidential task force with Ronald Reagan, nationally and later Jeb Bush in Florida as well as Tom Kean in New Jersey, You know these names, I was so high and so inside that left it disappointed never to return to any, However, the experiences and memorable moments of meeting these people will always be there, It made me a better person.
