What does this mean? Do they have problems with people putting their feet on the wall? Is it meant to be one sentence? This is on the fancy building, I think it is a bank, on the southwest corner of 14th and 8th.
A quadtych from Eva, or someone obsessed with Eva. Recently found, in a soggy condition, in Morningside Park.
Eva, or the artist obsessed with Eva, is probably more mature than the people in the White House who concluded that refusing to open an email message from the EPA would mean they could willfully remain ignorant of the EPA's conclusion that greenhouse gases are pollutants that must be controlled. There's probably no connection between those legal eagles and the Justice Department illegally using ideological criteria so they could hire lesser qualified, yet more politically acceptable, non-partisan career attorneys. January 20th can't get here soon enough.
On Sunday afternoon I was doing important consumer research in Madison Square Park when I realized the sky would soon be right for a rainbow. I walked over to the west side and, sure enough, there was a faint rainbow over the Empire State Building. Seeing how faint the rainbow was, I adjusted the image to bring out the colors. The result wasn't very attractive but at least the rainbow was clearly visible. I put both images on Flickr and people went crazy for the adjusted image. It is now the most often favorited item on my photostream. Go figure.
Homemade Donoughts, Strolling of the Heifers Dairy Fest, Brattleboro, VT
Doughnut, Blue Benn Diner, Bennington, VT
Proper doughnuts, no matter how the word is spelled, are best reasons to go to Vermont.
The other day I was telling someone about my trip. "I went to the Strolling of the Heifers. A hundred heifers parade up Main Street in Brattleboro." From the look on her face I couldn't tell whether she didn't know what a heifer was, or did and couldn't process the idea that a hundred of them would be marched through town.
Ahh, the reason I went to Vermont. It had been four years since I last went to the Strolling of the Heifers in Brattleboro. As in past years, about a hundred young cows strolled up Main Street at the front of the parade. Also marching were superhero super pooper scoopers, the high school band, a couple of giant fiberglass cows, a senator, a juggler on a unicycle and a whole lot more. After the parade I headed to the Green Expo and Dairy Fest. At the latter one could, and did, enjoy Vermont's dairy goodness, including lots of cheese, milk, ice cream and water buffalo yogurt.
Troy, New York allegedly has the largest Flag Day parade in the country. It is held the Sunday before Flag Day. I did not know this when I drove into Troy on that Sunday morning. A little bit of googling shows that Three Oaks, Michigan also claims to have the largest, and oldest, Flag Day parade. An estimated 60,000 people watched Appleton, Wisconsin's 57th annual parade last year.
Although I left a half-hour before the parade began, there didn't seem to be nearly that many people in Troy. By "largest" Troy could have meant largest people watching a parade. I don't say that to be snarky, it was just kind of shocking to see so many obese people. It was heartbreaking to see kids the same age as my nieces, but 2-3 times their weight.
