You know it has to be good to draw the Elusive Sail Capri out of hibernation. Need a washing machine, head over to Fleggaards

Just got this field report from our man about town, CH. He got 2 feet of snow in his neighborhood...
From the storm pics I took, I carved out these 16 that were taken at MacNeil Park in College Point. These are best viewed full screen. It's hard to believe you are still in NYC when you see these amazing images.
We had a heck of of snowstorm yesterday. I ended up working form home. During my lunch hour, me and my bride went to the park to go sledding and Ro took these great pics of the 2/26/10 Snowstorm. Mine are coming soon.
LV forwarded this to RL and instead of me forwarding it, I'll post it here for all to enjoy. 45 Lessons.
Some stories just won't go away. Here's the latest from 'the birther' movement. Appeals court: We're listening to eligibility case
We lost Skyy our blue beta fish the other night. He started to swell up, stopped eating and was lethargic for a few days. He went thru a lot, and we will all miss him.
Here's video from the Chinese New Year lion dance
The bank hosted a Chinese New Year lion dance in the lobby of the building the other day. It was very nice.
Fashion Week is finally gone, and the work has begin to restore our wonderful lawn at Bryant Park. Good riddance...
Got some new PEZ added to my collection.
Well, this SETTLES it for me. Once the UN stamps an issue with their support, I know the right way is the opposite way. Its a lot like using the views of Al Sharpton to help you decide your views. If he goes left, you go right. You can't go wrong.
Check this out. An amazing archaeological find in a place called Gobekli Tepe in Turkey. It's 11,500 years old, 6,000 years before Stonehenge.
A very interesting piece, about something called the four turnings.
Here's a wild idea. Life without money. Read Home of the Brave - by John Steinsvold.
My folks are married 53 years today. They both deserve medals for lasting this long. Happy Anniversary !!! We love you !!!
A birthday shout out to my UD. Happy Birthday !!!
They sure know how to party in India. Here's a wacky story a groom being shot dead at his wedding.
Did you know that this bastard is still alive ? The Lockerbie bomber who was let out because he had less than a few months to live, still lives. It's a miracle. I guess living in a villa has special medicinal value in extending life.
It was a matter of time before Congress began thinking like any other American corporation. Here's a news article on the future outsourcing of the President's position. Thanks to NM for fishing this out of a hometown newspaper.
Here's another hopeful image of the future. A future that can't come soon enough for We the People.

I don't understand who Tiger is apologizing to, and why it is so important as to be on national TV. He had enough time to go to each of his friends in the room, have lunch or dinner with them and apologize in person like a fucking man. I also don't understand the 'other women' who feel they need to be apologized to. What the phuck is that all about ??? Didn't they screw a married man ? Her certainly doesn't owe me an apology. In fact, the more we know about him the better for us as consumers of his message or product. He didn't sign any contracts with me that had morality clauses embedded into them.
Here's an idea, send Barry and his band of misfits in Congress copies of the Constitution. Perhaps one of them might actually read it. And if they don't, don't fret.... We the People will be weeding out the krackheads in November.
Got our federal tax refund today. I don't know where Paterson gets the right to delay my state refund. He never asked my permission to keep my money longer than required, so return my money....
Jack Jr looked handsome today when he went on a job interview with VJ at the bank at 417 today. Thanks VJ for your time, and congrats to JjLJr.
Frank got the college acceptance letter he has been waiting for. He was accepted to John Jay college. Congratulations son, we are so proud of you and we love you very much.
This last snow left a very picturesque scene on our block.
We found this little care package left with our trash. Some guy drove up, placed one by us and the folks across the street. Go figure.
Have you gotten your new DEP water meter ? We got ours installed the other day. I wonder which direction the bill will be going in now ? What guess you ?
Here's a stunning photo of the shuttle Endeavour in silhouette
Look out NYC, Frank drove alone for the first time since passing his road test today. Congratulations son, we are very proud of you.
Happy Valentines day to all you lovers out there. Be nice to your beloved, they are all you got.
A couple of birthday shout outs for today. Krumb adds another year to his belt, and continues to cheer those around him up.
My sis-in-law DA, grows another year older and better... Happy Birthday !!!
NM sends in this series of images of a new car being sold by VW in China. It's sells for around $600, and gets 245 miles to the gallon. Can't wait for it to be available here.

Well said, 545 People - By Charlie Reese
I've updated 2010 People, Places & Things. There are some nice building photos in there.
Big rock falls from sky. Big hole left behind. Or was it a satellite ?
I passed by Fashion Week at Bryant Park and took a few pics. I don't know who the chick is, but they were taking pics of her, she was kinda hot, so I did too...
Here are some great pics, taken by Ro, of Bongo Billy Banging Bongos at the Red Lion Inn.
The kids across the street had a great time in the snow as well. Here they are with their mom, and their kool snowman.
Let me ask a dumb question, does a balloon saloon check ID before each delivery ?
I came across this character on NY1 the other day. I have no other comment.
Here's a positive sign for America. Patrick Kennedy decided not to run for re-election to Congress. It will be the first time in 60 years there ain't a damn Kennedy in politics.
Happy Valentines Rosanne. I Love you !!!.
It can't be easy work for retired TR. To have to surf the internet all day long, looking for the hidden bargains, and important information that every consumer should be made aware of. Here's a commercial for washing machines from Denmark. Thanks TR, for the time you take to help us all. God Bless You !!!
Congrats to my son FjL, so far, he's gotten college acceptance letters from Queens & Hunter Colleges. Way to go young man.
Here's all the pics from the Blizzard of 2010.
My honey has worked hard already today. She shoveled 3 houses and a car so far. I reminded her that the storm is only half over and Don't work too hard Ro because there's more coming....
Here are a few Blizzard '10 pics - enjoy
Even Steven1 was out helping his dad shovel Rose's house. Checkout Hey Steven
Iran says it is going to 'stun the West' on 2/11/10. I figure they announce the invention of the flush toilet in the country, what say you ?
Who Dat who won the Super Bowl ??? The Saints won the game, and I won $500 in the pool for the final score of 31-17. PO JaL won his pool for first quarter, also $500.
the Winners go Saints !!!
It's Super Bowl XLIV Sunday, Go Saints !!!
As the restoration work winds down, I wanted to put something together for Terry, the job supervisor. He's done a great job, and was quite friendly to us. Good Luck Terry as you move on to your next job uptown.
Here's a disturbing story. Now, if you see a female muslim with fake boobs, run the other way....
Check this story out. There has been an underground coal fire burning in a small Pennsylvania town for 48 years now. The fire started in 1962, has burned underground since then, spreading and growing, The entire town has been evacuated, and needs to be torn down. There have been a few hold-outs, but they are being forced out now.
I've commented a lot on the concern out of Iran on some of their missile testing activities. If you recall, last year they set off missiles that detonated in the mid-atmosphere. Our MSM plugged them as failures, yet I was worried about them being prepatory for an EMP attack. Well, now we have Iran’s ICBM Capability on Global Display , with their most recent launch into orbit of a ship carrying 'live animals'. This orbiting craft now needs to de-orbit and bring these poor critters back to earth. If they do it successfully, they are one step closer to delivering an EMP nuclear blast over the middle of America, knocking us back to the stone age. Read also this EMP-101 primer to fully appreciate the potential with this type of attack.
Had a very enjoyable lunch with work colleagues, ScoobyFitz, and AG. We were even accompanied by the recently retired Silver Fox.
I got my hands on a few of these neat holders for our biometric keyfobs. If you want one, come see me quick before they're gone....
I've seen a lot of things chained to poles in Manhattan. But here's one thing we haven't seen here in the states just yet. From LF, a story out of China that will make you laugh or cry, depending on the chromosomes you have... Boy chained to lamppost.
Here we have Terry putting the final touches on our new awning. They are installing copper covers over each one of the spines on the overhang.
From TR, watch the Massachusetts Miracle. Like I said, We the People are coming to take our country back. Wait until November ....
What is this x-shaped object travelling at 11,000 MPH in out pace ? Caught by the Hubble Telescope.
I thought Fashion Week was moving to another location this year, but there it is being built again at Bryant Park.
Check these pics out. We came across this at Whitestone Park. A large tree limb was split and down. We found these 2 objects embedded inside the section. It's a kids top and a brick perfectly intact but embedded in the trunk. Amazing.
He did it !!! FjL passed his road test with a 90 score. He aced it. Great work son, we are very happy and so proud of you.
Good luck to my youngest son, FjL today, as he takes his road test. Hopefully the weather holds out and it isn't cancelled. today.
I love bar jokes. This one comes from the Big Guy, WFP, down Tampa way. Penguin takes his car ...
An important internet warning from TR, for everyone to pass around. If You Receive An Email Titled "Nude Photo Of Nancy Pelosi" --- Don't Open It. ----- It Contains A Nude Photo Of Nancy Pelosi.
Happy Birthday to both RT and SaY. Enjoy your birthday today.
For SaY and his beautiful wife, DY, it was extra special. DY's daughter gave birth to their first grandson, and on SaYs 50th birthday. So, congratulations Grandma and Grandpa Young !!!
Listen to Rush Limbaugh read his open letter to President Obama.
For all those contemplating 'cheating on your taxes', here is the 2009 Tax schedule. See how much you would have to lie to get more money back. It's almost impossible to be worthwhile. If your taxable income was $30,000-$60,000, you would have to lie about more than $10,000 in fake deductions to only get back an additional $1,500. How are you going to do that without it sticking out like a sore thumb ?
Happy 22nd wedding Anniversary to our good friends BnVM. I bet right now you are thinking how fast time goes by. You guys are wonderful, and have a great family together. Congratulations !!!
Happy Birthday to FjLs main squeeze, KK. Enjoy your special day today.
Happy Birthday Boom Boom. Hope you're enjoying your day.
Uncle Sam decided we'd be a good household for the Census this year. Yippee....

Do you hear that sound ??? It's the thunder building. Wait until November. Pack your bags Barry and his band of Socialist..... tick, tick, tick ...
