This book tells the story of how my diabetic condition was discovered, my denial of the condition, then the work done to get my glucose level to levels that are close to normal.

You can have a better quality of life with a diet that is compatible with this disease.

Skydiving Without a Parachute

Skydiving Without a Parachute!

Las Vegas, Nevada is known for gambling the world over, but there are many things to do and see in this city besides making a bet. One of the most fascinating activities centers around skydiving. If you have ever wanted to experience the sensation of jumping out of an airplane but were of afraid of being killed this is an alternative. It is called indoor skydiving and is a simulation of how if feels to fall from the sky.

A visitor to this facility will be given a jump suit, a helmet eye protection, and instruction from a professional staff member who will also accompany the guest inside the chamber. Located below your feet and a metal mesh floor is a large fan driven by a Boeing jet engine. The wind generated is the equivalent of a free fall from an airplane and lifts your body off the ground. It is a very safe experience and a thrill of a lifetime for most people.

Almost everyone who has experienced indoor skydiving has had positive comments. The one criticism is that the price is a bit steep for some people at seventy-five dollars a session. The facility is located just off of the strip on Convention Center Drive which is just north of Desert Inn Road. For those familiar with the casinos in Las Vegas it is between Wynn and the Riviera Hotel.
