                  At Jump!, we sell hope, and one example is 78-year-old, Mariano Altieri. Although Mariano is legally blind, we helped him fulfill his lifelong dream to get behind the wheel of a car and drive for the very first time! If it makes the difference in the life of a senior, then it makes a difference to us. As founder Webb Weiman puts it, “It’s important to stay relevant by showing seniors how many different options there are, and letting them know that we will be there every step of the way”. Jump! (http://www.myjump.org) is an organization built on relationships with Senior Centers, Senior Living Centers and Community Leaders. Our mission is to enrich the lives of as many seniors as possible, and remove that aspect of sadness, lonliness and isolation that can often sweep through the older population. “They spent most of their lives providing for us, and now it’s time to give something back to them,” says Weiman. Help us make a difference in the lives of seniors by supporting this organization, and spreading the good word of Jump! Earlier this year, the lovely and talented Annabelle Sedano (https://twitter.com/annabellesedano) contacted me from Univision (http://www.univision.com). They found Jump! online and wanted to join forces to do a story featuring a Hispanic Senior with a bucket list wish. I think we got more than we bargained for because Mariano Altieri is truly an incredible individual. I extend a special thanks to Gloria Bradley from California Driving School (http://www.california-driving-school.com) and the wonderful ladies at Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary (http://www.rshm.org). I hope you enjoy the story, and as always, thank you for believing in Jump! and the work we do!!

                  • The Flying Nun Opening and Closing Theme 1967 - 1970

                    The Flying Nun is an American sitcom produced by Screen Gems for ABC based on the 1965 book The Fifteenth Pelican, by Tere Rios. It starred Sally Field as Sister Bertrille. The series originally ran on ABC from September 7, 1967, to April 3, 1970, producing 82 episodes, including a one-hour pilot episode. Developed by Bernard Slade, the series centered on the adventures of a community of nuns in the Convent San Tanco in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The comic elements of the storyline were provided by the flying ability of a novice nun, Sister Bertrille. In the hour-long series pilot, Chicago native Elsie Ethrington arrives from New York City after having been arrested for being involved in a protest; she then adopts the name of Sister Bertrille. It is also later learned in the episode "My Sister, the Sister" that Sister Bertrille comes from a family of physicians and is the only one who did not follow in their footsteps. She became a nun after being impressed by the missionary work of her aunt, and breaks up with her boyfriend of eight months, a toy salesman. Sister Bertrille could be relied upon to solve any problem that came her way by her ability to catch a passing breeze and fly. This was generally attributed to her weighing under 90 lb., high winds at the Convent high on the ocean bluffs, and the large, heavily starched cornette (the headpiece for her habit; the cornette was based on one worn until the mid-1960s by the Daughters of Charity, although Sister Bertrille was never said to belong to that order). Her flying talents caused as many problems as they solved. She explains her ability to fly by stating, "When lift plus thrust is greater than load plus drag, anything can fly." The reason behind that statement was that Sister Bertrille weighed only 90 lbs., and in one episode she tries to gain weight so she could stay grounded, but the attempt failed. Additionally, in the first season episode "Young Man with a Cornette" she specifically tells a young boy who intended to use her cornette to fly that there were many factors other than her weight (which was more than that of the boy) that made her flying possible. The only time she was unsble to take off was when heavy rains or storms occurred and caused her starched cornette to lose its shape or when she had to wear something that would keep her grounded at all times. On August 27, 2013, it was announced that Mill Creek Entertainment had acquired the rights to various television series from the Sony Pictures library including The Flying Nun. On August 27, 2014, it was announced that they will re-release the first and second seasons on DVD on October 7, 2014.
