Let it snow

I could watch this all night…

And to think — it’s selling electronics in my neighborhood.

That’s nice

World-Kindness-DayThe Twitter-sphere is all abuzz about today’s holiday of note –

World Kindness Day

This particularly caught my eye because a couple of days ago, the New York Times reported on a recent study that suggests the two most important qualities to affect the longevity of a relationship are generosity and kindness.

So, while you may want to perform a random act of kindness or two to celebrate the day, being kind on a more regular basis could have a big ol’ karma kick-back for you and your special someone.

Just saying.

Remember

dog tags

Thank you for your patriotism, your service and your willingness to sacrifice for all us.

We have a winner!

Yes, it’s the only card I received in the mail, and my dog is a cockapoo…but I think most people will agree –

My friend Caroline rocks!

Hangry

Halloween is only five days away.

Better have your candy ready…

candy corn bagelTis’ the season for all things Halloween…

But a candy corn bagel?

Yes, that is the super-shiny, garishly colored baked product on the left.

It’s sold, of course, at a bakery in my beloved adopted hometown of New York City.

Now, I love a theme, but this bagel just looks wrong to me.  But before I pass judgment, I wanted to get your thoughts.

 

How sweet it is!

Living a block from Central Park in Manhattan, I’ve been known to get a bit grouchy come Saturday morning when yet another group of runners clog the streets and walkways and generally disrupt my morning walk.

Don’t they know we dog people own the park?

But today there was a run that even I can get behind –

cupcakesThe New York City Cupcake Run

This 5 kilometer (3.1 mile) race for people of all ages challenges participants to go the distance while stopping to eat three cupcakes at checkpoints along the course.  Tasty!

Plus, a portion of the proceeds benefits New York Cares.

And if that isn’t reason enough to love this non-traditional charity event, here’s one of my favorites –

It’s run in Astoria.
