Jay's Personal Collection - Part 1

After some encouragement from others, here is some work from my personal collection that I have recently done.  These images are just from various trips and were done just for fun to capture the memory or moment.  I don't always bring my big camera with me on vacation, but I did on a couple trips recently and here are some of the photographs.

Columbia Firefighters and USC Gamecocks SEC East Champions

I bring you this blog today with both a happy and sad heart.  First the happy and good news.  Congratulations to the USC (that is University of South Carolina) Gamecock Football team for winning the SEC East Conference this weekend.  It has been a long tough road but you stuck to it and pulled it out.  As alumni of USC, it makes me proud of your accomplishment.  You have represented our university well!!  Stick with it the rest of the season and fight it out till the end.  Don't get caught up in your own success... set another goal and go after it.

On a sad note, my heart and condolences go out to the friends and family of Chance Zobel the Columbia / Richland firefighter who gave his life doing his job to keep the residents of this great city safe.  Also our prayers are with Larry Irvin for a quick and complete recovery from his injuries that he also received doing his job!  To all firefighters everywhere, THANK YOU for what you do to keep us safe, we appreciate you!!  You are all HERO'S in my book!!

Beckett Financial Group

When life changes, it is always recommended to meet with a financial adviser to get advise about your financial situation and what the best options are for you at that point.  Obviously, getting married is a major life change for a couple and a couple wants to start out in their new life together on the right foot.  We recommend that you find a good financial adviser that will look out for your interest, if you don't already have one.  In Columbia, SC, we recommend Beckett Financial Group for the task.  These guys will work hard to find the best investments, insurance, and other solutions to grow your money.  Check out their website at I (Jay) personally use them as my financial advisers and I don't think you will be disappointed.

Bob Fulton - Voice of the Gamecocks remembered

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Bob Fulton on his passing.  He for some many years was the Voice of the Gamecocks and touched so many lives with his description on Gamecock athletics for those that couldn't make the games.  I personally met Bob after he had retired from doing Gamecocks games and he was calling high school football games for my Alma mater just for fun!  He was to most upstanding, and honorable man, and one of the nicest people that you could meet.  He will be missed and we thank him for his contributions to this community over the years!  May he rest in peace....
