    That is wonderful. I didn't know you could do such precision flying like that...and all controlled by just the one man. Awesome

    Many years ago my second and fourth daughters, two granddaughters and myself took some cheap kites and went kite flying. We were out several hours and the kids got very frustrated with my daughter and I because we had such a good time and weren't ready to go home. The kids pleaded hunger, weariness, and finally the need of a bathroom before they could pry us loose. What great memories! Thanks for reminding me!

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    That was beautiful - thanks.

    Reminds me of an act that was on America's Got Talent a few years ago.

    Great video, thanks! Oh the joy of holding onto the kite string as the wind pulls against it. I wish more children today had the experience of kite flying. It's hard to find a spot without power lines or the dreaded "kite eating tree" of Charlie Brown fame.
