"It's not the work, it's the stairs" once said the retiring prostitute to Elaine Stritch's father.. But I digress...
Here on Postcards: I removed the old "referrer widget" and abolished all "The Rings" including the Rail and the Ageless Rings which served no purpose in this day and age (that I could detect)... These thingies probably sent some spambots my way... lol... Nicomar can let me know if this alleviates his malware alerts... (anyone else getting malware alerts? If so, tell me the details so I can pinpoint the faulty code)
Should I be annoyed that Flickr dishonestly took my money two short months ago for a two year Pro Account while plotting to open up the entire Flickr service for free?
Yahoo is buying Tumblr for a Billion bucks... Reminds me that I used to have a Tumblr: http://toddster.tumblr.com/ started in 2008 when it was all new!
So why did I drop the Tumblr and stick with the Blogger? I dunno...
Really, Twitter is the most rewarding in so many ways... https://twitter.com/toddhellskitch
And Facebook plods on... Though I fear it will soon crash into MySpace oblivion... It feels too Republican to me on there...
Now MySpace... that's one I never even bothered with...
Friendster? Remember Friendster?
God, I'm old...

Do you need a Spinal Meningitis vaccine?
Don't forget: At Roseland: 16th Annual NYC Tattoo Convention features tattoo artists from around the world Sun 12N-8p... Doesn't look like I'm gonna make it this year...
Disappointed at Ninth Ave Food Festival this year. Uncle Nick's didn't even bother to set up shop on the avenue this year. No calamari, no pig on spit, no ouzo garden. Tradition lost... If you want to see plenty of the same ol, same ol Street Fair Vendors, come to Ninth Avenue Food Fest... Used to be a fine chance to sample ethnic foods from all the Ninth Ave small ethnic restaurants of the 1970s, 80s, and 90's. All a samey plethora of beer and sports bars now... Yawn.
These poor Men of Broadway can't even afford shirts. Join me in pitying them.
Another insane week on tap... My year at work as been unrelenting in pressure... And late May is no exception... Promises to keep me going at full throttle skidding into the end of the fiscal year...
Three day weekend for Memorial Day to be especially appreciated this year...
Day at a time....

Been a largely gray and drizzly weekend...

Today, I worry about Bees, Monk Seals, and Oranges.
Science says you only need a 7 minute workout... And apparently there are three abdominal exercises every man must do... Must is a strong word...
Jimmy Carter is the most-trusted U.S. politician, according to a new poll.
A delightful idea: "At my funeral, I'm going to make the lights flicker for effect." sez J.P. Haddadio AKA J.P. Janitor on Twitter

Spring in Manhattan and many new blasts of high pressures and pollen on so many fresh fronts... too many varieties to count... But, on the work and home fronts both... Day at a time. (Photo from a Public Art Installation by Orly Genger in Madison Square Park)

Took a few minutes to bask in the sun up near Central Park North this AM.... a few denizens of the Park lake beat me.to it... but ok. The sky is blue. The sun is bright... And I gotta get back to work... but it was a nice break... A turtle break...

Personally, I plan to shop for more avocados.
Now following Bill Clinton on Twitter.... Coincidentally the same week that Anthony Weiner re-launched a Twitter account. And the week that Barbara Bush declared "We've had enough Bush's in the White House... Jeezus, that's a mouthful! Let me say this: Lindsay Graham is a ninny!
New Boy Scouts of America policy will still ban gay leaders. BOYCOTT the BSA!
