Slow motion Drone Video of the Beaches at Endicott College from Rob Ackerman

Hi Joey,

My name is Rob Ackerman.
I am Freshman at Endicott College, majoring in elementary education.
When I am not studying or in class, I like to take pictures and video with my DJI Phantom 4 drone or Canon 80D.
Recently I created a slow motion video of the water and beaches here at Endicott College.

I would be honored if you shared it on your blog!

Poll- It was just a matter of time before they started marketing tights for dudes. Would you wear them?

image Yep it’s a thing I guess.  For dudes.

If you’re a guy would you wear these?

If you’re a woman would you let your man wear tights?

Live Smoke- Flank Steak Stuffed With Feta, Roasted Red Peppers, Pepperoncini and Prosciutto di Parma On The @WeberGrills One Touch Premium

First To Butterfly The Flank Steak with the grain.


Try to get it squared off when split open and laid out.


Season with whatever you’d like, I used Montreal Steak seasoning.


Next add Feta (you can use other cheeses like goat cheese if you prefer).  leave a little margin around the edges without stuffing ingredients.


Add sliced roasted red peppers and pepperoncini.


Next Prosciutto di Parma


Roll tightly and secure with butchers string.


Season the outside.  here I used Italian herb seasoning.


Check back for more updates.

Once grill was 350 degrees at grate temp I seared the stuffed flank steak, rolling every couple of minutes until each side had color.



Next place foil down on the charcoal grate under where we will place the stuffed flank steak, moving the roll offset the coals.  We will close the lid, place a couple of chunks of apple wood over the coals for smoke and wait til she hits 130 internal to pull it off.
