Sunday Catch-Up

"I believe every human has a finite number of heartbeats. I don't intend to waste any of mine." ~ Neil Armstrong. RIP Neil Armstrong 1930-2012, Astronaut and the very first man on the moon.

Enjoyed a cool and comfortable Sunday morning in a local Hell's Kitchen park with my New York Times and a $1.50 large Yemenese bodega coffee in a cardboard cup. Milk. No Sugar. Later: Homemade cheddar omelet and fresh cantaloupe for Sunday breakfast. Oh, and a nectarine.

The last Sunday before the last Sunday of summer vacation... Ohhh noooo.

Another NYC landmark faces extinction! New York Times reports that the 64 year old Colony Records at 49th/Broadway will close in the near future.

"I wish more bald men looked like Mr. Clean." - Noog via @NoogsCorner on Twitter. Amen to that.

Here's Ten Things You Probably Didn't Know About the Original Star Trek. Fascinating.

I boiled some beets yesterday. 

 Ran into Hell's Kitchen author Tim O'Mara yesterday AM. Hi first crime novel, Sacrifice Fly, is available for pre-order on Amazon.

Why Sugar Addiction Is for Real.

OK. I bought a Krups coffeepot. What's a good coffee to get? Just a basic coffee. Like Dunkin Donuts coffee but without Dunkin Donuts pricetag? Maxwell House? Chock Full o' Nuts? Suggestions?

Rest in Peace, Jerry Nelson, Muppeteer, 1934-2012

Nice catch up coffee visit on Friday with Pablo at News Bar in Union Square area. Followed by solo trip to Saigon Market (on University) for a Vegetarian Bun Xao lunch.

Then to buy a chair at Nadeau and carry it all the way home to Hell's Kitchen on the subway... Big hunky , manly chair... Just the way I like it. At least, I had a seat on the Q train.

I'm seriously considering dumping TV altogether. Just Internet and then webpages, Hulu, and Netflix... Anybody else tried that? Will be a hard habit to break, but would save $150 a month!Cold turkey would be the only way to go...

Get thyself a burr based coffee grinder and get whole beans. Empire State Coffee and Tea has a decent selection.
