A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

Oh, hell no. Just like a grasshopper is a grasshopper and a cricket is a cricket in my world...:lol: It's really tough to say without seeing a side shot (at least for me). There are over 200 species of the family Tettigoniidae in North America. The more that I looked, the more confused I became.

Beautiful! Some of the orb-weavers are really striking.

Mike spotted this walking stick on my office porch this morning. I tried to get a photo of me holding it, but the darn thing was too fast--up my arm, on my head, down my back... :lol: I had to settle for a photo of it on a towel on the floor, where it would finally stay still:

Walking sticks are one of the few insects that don't creep me out. Very cool. :)

Don't like things crawling on me....even when I know what it is....think the towel was a good idea ;)
