34 years ago! Where did the time go. Interesting to see who in the video is still alive, Willie Nelson is now 87!

The Carillon Wellness Resort in Miami is by far!!, by far, the very best hotel we’ve ever stayed in…and we like 4-star hotels such as the Ritz Carlton but the Carillon outshines all others. Service is a lost art; not at the Carillon! Service is extraordinary, cheerful, helpful, informative and extremely accommodating. We arrived 5 hours later than expected due to incredibly bad traffic and 7 car accidents. Upon check-in,…
