    If I had go guess, I would say the current tag was taken from Hopmeadow St. in Simsbury. Am I warm, Blitch?

    Nod Hill Road, Simsbury - Golf Club?

    I was laughing in that parking lot trying to line up the shot exactly as it was. Parking the bike. Reparking the bike. Helmet falls off handlebars. :clap Move the bike closer to road. Further from road. I'm thinking Blitch might have been sitting when taking the photo? That was fun. Not too cold out either. By the way, I always wear my heated vest with my jacket, but NEVER turn it on. I run hot anyway, but just wondering how many people really use the heat?

    Bravo and yes I think I was on one knee to get the tower and bike in the shot. I m not to picky about my tags being replicated exactly, close is good enough for me.

    Kawi , if you look at google maps with the sat image you'll see the tower is labeled on top of the mountain, if your zoomed out a little bit the Tower Ridge Country Club is labeled at the base of the mountain on Nod Rd

    Fitty was an original partner in Vitamin Water that was sold to Coca Cola for over 4 billion dollars. He stills owns the house. Saw a recent interview with him and in the interview they alluded to the fact that he has made a bunch of really successful investments. First time I ever saw an interview with him. Seemed like a pretty humble guy that has had some luck on his side.

    I was wrong (way wrong) about him being a billionaire though...

    American rapper, actor, entrepreneur and executive producer, Curtis James “50 Cent” Jackson III, has an estimated net worth of $110 million as of April 2012, according to FORBES. 50 Cent endured substantial obstacles throughout his young yet remarkably dramatic life before becoming the most discussed figure in rap, if not pop music in general, circa 2003. 50 cent has has become one of the richest rappers in the world particularly for his business-savvy, as the rapper got a neat nine-figure payout from the sales of Vitamin Water, when it was sold to Coca Cola. He bought and renovated the mansion formerly owned by Mike Tyson. Cushion remains from catalog, acting gigs and 50 Cent-themed videogames, books, clothes and headphones. Future billionaire? He told Forbes Magazine in 2008: “It’s probably going to take me 10 years.” Born Curtis James Jackson III on July 6, 1975 in South Jamaica, Queens, New York, United States.

    that is not 50 cents place. But i am sure you could get 50 cents from one of the owners many locations.
