As November rolls in, those seasonal summer places we associate with warmer weather and school breaks finally give way to the unrelenting cold and close down for the season... In Albany, NY, where it’s below freezing tonight, Huck Finn’s Playland saw its last “Fun Slide” riders last week. Much like happy go lucky Huck himself, “Playland” has entertained generations of kids, since 1951. It was set to close for good after the season in 2014, when the Hoffman family, longtime operators were to retire. The community wouldn’t have it! After an off season of planning and lots of good luck, they relocated to a lot adjacent to Albany’s Huck Finn Warehouse, the giant home furnishing center... amazing, right? Thank goodness Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn has been in the public domain for over 100 years... what are the chances that Playland gets rescued by #HuckFinn ?! Twain couldn’t write it any better!! #Albany#amusmentpark#SignCollective
@gasgaslex_photos captured this fun filled dolphin action as they photobombed his attempts to take photos of the lolling Humpback whales along Cheynes Beach.
The #whalewatching season is at its tail end, being from June and October, but there's still a little time to spot the #whales before we say goodbye for the season.
Going on a #whalewatchingcruise with @king_george_sound_safari definitely increases your chances of seeing the giants up close and personal. If you're extra lucky the local dolphins might evenmake an appearance and photobomb your tour! 🐬🐳

Raj found himself locked out late last year and he was shocked to see how easily we slipped the latch on his door. We recommended deadbolts on all the exterior doors and a year later he agreed. We added double cylinder deadbolts on the glass doors and single cylinder deadbolts on the solid doors in the garage. We were even able to maintain his existing key💪🚀⭐

🆕 This week we’re excited to welcome Bianca Torres, CPT who will debut her Mind, Body, & Aerobic (M.B.A.) Wellness Workout with us here at Her365! Bianca designed this class to focus the mind, strengthen all muscle groups and to improve mobility/stability along the kinetic chain. This class features elements of the ancient practice of Qigong as well as some basic aerobic training for general cardiovascular health. Check it out on Tuesday @ 6:45. • • • 🤸🏽♀️ What is the KINETIC CHAIN? Anatomically, the kinetic chain describes the interrelated groups of body segments, connecting joints, and muscles working together to perform movements and the portion of the spine to which they connect. 💪🏽 The upper kinetic chain consists of the fingers, wrists, forearms, elbows, upper arms, shoulders, shoulder blades, and spinal column. 🦵🏽The lower kinetic chain includes the toes, feet, ankles, lower legs, knees, upper legs, hips, pelvis, and spine. In both chains, each joint is independently capable of a variety of movements. Dependent on whether the distal end of the chain is fixed or free to move without restriction, each movement is classified as either closed or open. (American Council on Exercise, acefitness.org)
• • • ☯️ What is QIGONG? Qigong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one's mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. (National Qigong Association, nqa.org)

Veterans Day is a time to honor and thank the men and woman who have dedicated their lives for the greater good of our nation! I am proud to announce that TODAY @nygovcuomo SIGNED my Senate Bill S4049A into law. This new law will authorize a homeless veterans study. The findings from this study will used to provide recommendations and solutions to prevent veterans from becoming homeless.
It is our obligation to make sure that we are well informed on how many veterans here in New York struggle with homelessness, so that we are well equipped to do all we can to address this growing problem. I applaud @nygovcuomo and my colleagues in the assembly and senate for throwing their support behind a thorough study that will document this important information.
