Come Fly With Me

Recently I asked readers, what I should do to celebrate when Flying Lessons achieves one million page views. And while many people suggested having a cocktail or going flying (not at the same time of course) I was unknowingly, already working on the perfect celebration; taking a trip to somewhere new and on this one I want you to come along with me.

Today, April 1st, no foolin; this blog will be arriving in formation with my travel blog at my new website so this will be my last post at this url. is beautifully designed by the mega-talented, Portland-based, Kate McMillian of Outbox Online. The site she’s built has space for photos, videos, comments, an archive of newspaper and magazine stories I’ve written and information about (and soon an excerpt from) my new book.

Your arrival checklist is simple. Click on “subscribe”, select which blog you want to receive - you can select both blogs if you wish - and you're done. You'll be notified each time I publish a new post.

As ever, your email address is safe. I won’t sell it or use it to spam you. 

If you are already receiving Flying Lessons via Feedburner or Google Groups or any other RSS feed, that may continue, then again it may not. Since I don’t want to lose you and I hope you don’t want to lose me, just click on "subscribe", okay?

Over the past few years, I’ve written 499 Flying Lessons posts and exceeded 951,000 page views. These nearly-there numbers remind me of the birth of my daughter Marian Schembari. In 1987, she arrived one-minute before 3:00 am and 1 ounce shy of 6 pounds. She’s exceeded all expectations ever since. 

With your support I have high hopes Flying Lessons will continue to soar.  See you soon at
