Drink of the Day
This episode’s drink is Sobe Elixir Liz Blizz Pina Colada. Not Cam’s favorite. At all. Maybe he’d like Southbeach Sunset, a more mango flavor? See Sobe’s array of drinks and flavors here.
Falcons, hawks, eagles, and owls, oh my! The sport of falconry is at least 4,000 year old. It is gaining popularity here in the States and although it is a process to become a falconer, you can experience this sport by visiting Woodstock, Vermont. New England Falconry works together with Woodstock Inn and Resort for guests and the general public to be able to handle an actual bird and wear the glove.
While Benjamin Franklin may have wanted a turkey instead of the bald eagle for one of our national symbols, you can view the World Archives of Falconry at World Center for Birds of Prey located in Boise, Idaho.
