Barnegat Light ordeal--close to home!

This morning, one of the more prolific commenters on the PA birding listserv informed us that HE was the one who fell between the rocks on the Barnegat Light jetty! He got some spectacular images, but oh, at what a cost!

If you're interested in his account (and photos), visit his site. At least he retained his sense of humor!

I would have paniced, peed my pants and died of fright on the spot. That's an unbelievable story.

I keep going back to his post and it scares the beejeezus out of me every time. He is one lucky man.

Lynne--me too.

NCMtnWoman--incredibly lucky. The guy's been married 53 years; he must be in his late 70s. To have survived such a fall--wow.

Just checking in to catch up with Niblet, sounds like he is doing pretty well!!!!!! Spots send high fives.

WOW ~ that is a frightening ordeal to live through. The story should be on the big channels. Glad this was a happy ending. So glad Niblet seems better too.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started take up real money.
It's all about how to select a correct partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
