American Museum of Natural History visit. The Barosaurus is still here. Being attacked by an Allosaurus.
Elephant looked good.
The Titanosaurus can't fit so the head sticks out of the display room.
Duck-Bill, Triceratops and T-Rex.

Janet McTeer and Cush Jumbo will star in the Public Theater's free Shakespeare in the Park production of The Taming of the Shrew. An all female cast.
Even Google wished me Happy Birthday after I signed in.
Added a card to my list of gifts.

26.8, lots more in drifts. Looks like I will be taking the train the next couple of days.
Godfather Epic: 7 hours and 4 minutes, on HBO on demand, a perfect blizzard movie. It has the combined Godfather and Godfather II in chronological order with additional scenes. I watch movies at home with closed-captions along with the sound. You pick up little things like pezzonovante and stronzo.
Michael V. Gazzo as Frankie Pentangeli is just great.
The day after.

Snow Day, but it's the weekend. A little more snow than expected. Will garage the car.
Thank God the Liquor store is close by. Wine for the weekend. I went to the grocery store last night for supplies.
Annual trip to the Grand Central Grand Hyatt.
Boy, moving my car to a garage seven hours ago was a great idea.

The "Ultimate Snow Day" Winter festival has been cancelled because of Snow.
News is dominated by Snow reports. Seems a little off for a now predicted 4-6 inches. The wind reports are what concerns me. I will probably put the car in a garage early Saturday just to be sure to avoid drifts.

I always thought Jackson Browne wrote Take it Easy. Now, I realize Glenn Frey co-wrote it. Glenn Frey RIP.
Restaurant Week at Blue Smoke. $25 for wings, ribs and chocolate cheesecake. What a deal ! The cheesecake was a revelation.

Murder, My Sweet was on TCM last night. Mike Mazurki as Moose Malloy was terrific. The book was Farewell, My Lovely but the producers thought it sounded too much like a musical.
"Let's dispense with the polite drinking, shall we?"
Holy Schmitt's Horseradish will be used for tomorrow's Bloody Marys.
