14 Juillet a Paris!

Did you ever wonder what fireworks looked like in Paris?  How about behind the Eiffel Tower?  It was Bastille Day the other day, and a French friend of ours was there with his handy iPhone.  He sent us a video postcard of the fireworks!  (See here)  His postcard reads:

"Cette année 2012, le 14 juillet, Bastille day, aura été placé sous le thème de la musique disco. Sur fond de tubes des années 70 et 80, d'une boule à facettes géante, des feux d'artifices sont tirés depuis les jardins du Trocadéro avec la Tour Eiffel en premier plan.Le 14 juillet, fête Nationale de France, célèbre la fin de la Révolution Française. Les Frenchies adorent fêter le 14 juillet. Ils se retrouvent par milliers au pied de la Tour Eiffel, attroupés sur le Champ-de-Mars pour assister au célèbre feu d'artifice. Une marée humaine nait, dansant, chantant et célébrant ce jour, admirant la Tour Eiffel sur fond d'un ciel illuminé de milles couleurs.Un spectacle tout aussi incroyable que magnifique, et même si nous ne sommes pas Français, nous ne pouvons qu'être inspirés par l'histoire de la France, sa culture et son peuple."

Translation:

"This year, 2012, Bastille Day, or 14 Juillet as the French say, took on a "disco" theme.  Fireworks blasted behind the Eiffel Tower as the hits of the 70s and 80s blared over the speakers.14 Juillet celebrates the end of the French Revolution — and the Frenchies LOVE to celebrate this holiday.  The crowds at the Eiffel Tower along the Champs de Mars reach into the thousands.  And they're full of people dancing, cheering, and celebrating as they watch the sky light up as a backdrop to the outline of the Eiffel Tower. It's an unbelievable sight, and even if you're not French, you can't help but be inspired by France's history, its culture and its people."

Thank you friend!  Click HERE for fireworks, and smiles, from across the sea.

Blind Waiter Serves Up Diner Classics and Life Lessons

** As we wind down to the final days of this difficult year, OGTV is tipping our hat to all of the essential workers on the front lines with this uplifting story about a New Jersey man who has found a way to do this difficult job for years, even without his eyesight! **

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake. What is unique about this meal is the waiter who delivers it to your table – his name is John Diakakis, and he is blind.
