Ya Can’t Miss This!

Times Square is probably the one image that comes to mind when thinking of New York City.  The shoulder to shoulder sidewalk traffic, the bumper to bumper street traffic full of yellow cabs with constantly blaring horns, the huge stories-high neon signs and video screens advertising the Broadway shows, the iconic wedge shaped building where...

We Almost Saw a Mermaid Parade

Zoo York City….I have heard that before.  I hadn’t seen it….. but that was before Saturday! There is a major happening each year at Coney Island where over 100,000 people show up.

Oh look, a Boat!

One thing about not having gainful employment is your schedule is flexible.  One thing about ADD is you can be easily distracted.  When you combine the two of these, you may as well save your time on making plans.
