In which we go crazy for The Gates....

Posted by Hello
My friends Janet and Todd came in from Massachusetts just to spend the morning checking out The Gates. So fortified with French pastries and coffee, it was off to the park we went...

Florida, here I come

So for the first time in about twenty-odd years, I visited Florida. Sarasota to be exact.

The trip begins with my trying the new Air Train terminal from Jamaica Station, Queens, which I try out to avoid the $60 cab ride (roughly, the same price as my Jet Blue ticket). Posted by Hello
