Dancing in the Street

Whirling Dervish There is something strange about the air in Manhattan.  At least, that’s what I tell myself each day when I encounter the odd dancers. For the most part, they are tourists who appear during rush hour (8-10) when people are trying to get in their offices.  They are […]

The trip to the train station

Old Timey Trolley I’ll post a picture when I get home tonight of the actual Trolleys, but for now, I’ll just talk about them.  Our “shuttle” to the train station transformed from the smallish white vans to full blown tour bus things shaped like Trolleys about 3 weeks ago.  I […]

Spoiled Rotten

First Entry at New Location

I wasn’t sure what I was going to blog about.  My work these days is somewhat confidential, so I guess I will write about the “fun” things going on in my life.  Actually, the “fun” things are my interaction with the incredibly smart “stupid people” up here in the North […]
