Manhattanhenge 2014

Manhattanhenge 2014 Is Tonight

In case you didn't grow up in New York, Manhattanhenge — sometimes referred to as the Manhattan Solstice — is a circumstance which occurs twice a year, during which the setting sun aligns with the east–west streets of the main street grid in the borough of Manhattan in New York City.

If the weather cooperates, we'll see some beautiful photos...

9/11 Memorial Museum

I don't know how I feel about the outrage over the 9/11 Memorial Museum's gift shop...

I know that a few weeks after September 11th, 2001, I bought the above dog tag with the name of Steven Weinstein, FDNY, and it hangs from my rear view mirror to this day.

Voices Of September 11th

Is that any different?

HR Giger 1940 - 2014

His art was the stuff of nightmares for some, but for many of us, it was creative artistry as never before seen...

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... the above pic should be reversed for Tara, the heroic badass cat!

Tara had better get some nice treats from now on. She's earned them.

Bad Ballast

Two Boys Seriously Injured When Bounce House Is Blown Into The Air By Wind

I cringe when I think back on all the times when my girls jumped around in those things... I've even had them in my own yard.

Solange Knowles Kicks, Punches, Claws Jay Z In Elevator Video At Met Gala After-party

I saw this trending on the news show that I watch every morning, and, at first I thought, who?

Once I found out who was at the crux of this matter, my first thought was who the eff cares.

Seriously? This is news.

Then I thought how important these celebrities are to our young people and how their behavior impacts them in ways that can't fathom at the moment, but will impact our society in days to come. It's just food for thought.

I don't know... if my sister and my husband broke out into a fight in front of me in an enclosed space, such as an elevator, I think I would've reacted.

In some ways maybe it is news.

Cinco De Tequila

I think Cinco De Mayo is just an excuse for Americans to drink prodigious amounts of tequila.

David Disfigurement

This might have been a Cat Blog Friday post, but I wasn't sure if that was a kitty blocking the view of David's 'er, ahem' nether regions...

Michaelangelo's David Statue Is Having Ankle Problems

Anyway, I hope they fix whatever is wrong, because he sure is a sight.

I Got Your Halal Right Here...

Daily Mail: UK Subways Drop Bacon And Ham From Menu To Comply With Halal

"Nearly 200 Subway restaurants across the United Kingdom no longer serve bacon or ham, and will instead serve only halal-prepared meat in an effort to “balance the values of many religious communities,"


Where's the balance?

Go eat your halal meat at home and leave our restaurants alone.
