Around New York

I've been on break for a little over two weeks - we start back up on Wednesday. Last week I snapped these pictures of some squirrels in Union Square:







Who, me??







Oy, my tennis elbow!


Pace is right across from City Hall Park, where there is currently an exhibit of some Calder stabiles. I believe this one is called Chien en trois couleurs:


Probably my favorite fountain (sorry, Bethesda):




The hydrangeas bloomed extravagantly . . .


I saw this sign in Queens, at the freight entrance for the Costco. I've never met an opertator before, have you?


Next to the Costco is Rainey Park. We saw a nice sunset over Manhattan.

Wicked!

I've just been listening to the latest AcappellaU podcast and Joey C mentioned this commercial that Honda did. Trust me on this and check it out. Go to the website and just click "Watch" - you can see the commercial and also a documentary about how they made it. Go ahead and do it - I know you're wondering what a cappella and cars have to do with each other. Now you can find out.

OMG!!!

In what is now my new favorite NYC celebrity sighting . . . I totally just saw Kate Winslet at Chelsea Market! She was at The Lobster Place with her son waiting on (what else?) an order of lobster. Naturally, I had to eat there so I got a very nice chowder.

Awards

I was asked to "make some remarks" and I knew I would be receiving the Academic Achievement Award and the Patricia Mallett Scholarship. The LSN Advisory Board Scholarship was a surprise.

Surprise!
