~ A Quick Update…

Posted by Admin on October 19, 2006


Dear Readers,

I apologize for the lack of posting the last few days as I have been feeling a little ‘under the weather’. Not sure exactly what’s up, but I’ve been quite tired, much more so than usual. I’ll start posting again as soon as I’m feeling up to it.

In the meantime, take care & stay safe everyone!

– Michelle

QUOTE:

(CBS/AP) NEW YORK A small plane with New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle aboard crashed into a 50-story condominium tower Wednesday on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, killing at least two people and raining flaming debris on sidewalks, authorities said. There was no immediate confirmation Lidle was among the dead.

A law enforcement official in Washington, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Lidle was on the plane. And Federal Aviation Administration records showed the single-engine plane was registered to the athlete, who just days ago — after the Yankees’ humiliating elimination from the playoffs — told reporters that he was getting his pilot’s license.

The official said he did not know whether Lidle was at the controls; at least one other person was aboard the four-seat aircraft.
