Williston, Florida - Home to Foolish Pleasure

With the running of the Kentucky Derby tomorrow afternoon, it seemed appropriate to post this photo congratulating Williston's Foolish Pleasure for his win back in 1975.

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

This sign, referencing an aeronautical university caught my attention. I'd never heard of Embry-Riddle and knew nothing about it but was immediately suspicious. My suspicions were unfounded. It is a fully-accredited institution with residential campuses in Daytona Beach, Florida and Prescott, Arizona! It also has 170 other campuses of which this is one. The original Embry-Riddle was the forebearer of American Airlines.

It's a fascinating story and you can read all about it here.
