Well, I'm working my ass off and not getting much free time. Taking a few breaks but will be working this weekend.

Greenmarket has fresh Jersey Stawberries. Will be making Strawberry Shortcake shells with fresh whipped cream.

Well, the Rangers lost to the Devils. Will console myself with the The Grand Tropez cocktail. The Grand Marnier people had ads throughout the series touting this drink:

The Grand Tropez
1.5 oz. Grand Marnier
1 Squeeze of a Lemon Wedge
Soda Water
Over a glass with filled with ice, squeeze a lemon. Pour the Grand Marnier and fill with Soda Water. Stir gently.

At last, a yearly favorite: Sugar Snap Peas. Many had it for $6 a pound but Migliorelli Farm had them for $4 a pound.

Happy Mother's day to all the Mothers out there. Mine is gone but not forgotten.

Al Wilson : Show and Tell. Heard it playing yesterday, one great song.

R.I.P. NY Knicks. Still, a very exciting and watchable season. A flawed team but lots of fun to watch.

Survivor One World Finale tomorrow night. Looks like Kimsanity rules. Probably Chelsea and Sabrina in final Three.

Mother's day in this house starts with Mimosas and Godiva Truffles. Beautiful day in store.

Wild, attention-grabbing cover. Just in time for Mother's Day. Skål!

Still my favorite Magazine cover of all time. I have the original. Playdead's interview of Dan Blocker was hilarious.

Supermoon tonight: Perigee is the closest the moon gets to Earth and the stage the moon appears larger while apogee is the farthest point from Earth.

Andrew Roberts' The Storm of War continues my WW II readings.

Just picked it up for $18.29 after discounts and a coupon. Ever since The Power Broker , I read every thing he puts out.
