    Many people ask me what we brought with us to America, when we immigrated here in 1989.

    Someone had told my parents that in order NOT to...

    Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld and I shook hands 20 minutes before we were to jump out of an airplane together at 12,500 feet. It would be my first solo jump. Dan has made some 23,000 -- he's stopped counting except by the thousands.
