Hello my friends and welcome to Bay Ridge where earlier in the day we had our annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. This is the first parade of the year in our neighborhood and since it passes right by my block I always try to snag a bunch of images for you readers to enjoy. One of the main reasons that I do this is for those long ago residents who might have moved away from this neck of the woods so they get a little slice of the old neighborhood. Earlier this year my own family packed up and headed to South Carolina. Oh don’t worry, I’m still here in NYC and ready to entertain you again and again so let’s get started on these parade visuals. I’ll be letting the images do the talking and say very little until we’re done.
I saw this painted on a wall that I had passed on West 49th street in NYC and liked it so much I made a post out of it for you all. Sadly I didn’t see much else in terms of an artist or piece name but enjoy just the same. Hey I also did this post completely by Smartphone which was something that had not been tried yet. Ciao for now my friends. Always appreciate the life and pulse of the world around you. It’s good for the soul.
Since it’s once again time for the “wearin’ o’ the green” I wanted to wish all of our readers a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day and share a couple of images with them as well. All of the stuff you see was captured on wanderings around our fair metropolis shortly before the actual St. Pat’s Day.
It had been awhile since I did anything for this category on the PiercingKen blog, so I decided there was no time like the present. I had been rocking at three consecutive nights of Metal shows and awoke ravenous not too long before this posting and decided to do a little something different from making an omelet.
This time around I took a couple of eggs, a giant mushroom and a few slices of pepperoni since I just love the stuff and rather than slowly and carefully prep each piece and assemble them as I went along, I opted to toss it all in the pan together and cook it up. The end result looked like the aforementioned omelet had exploded. Tada.
Of course since I also have a great appreciation for cheese a single slice of American was added along with a healthy dose of hot sauce and the pictured wheat toast. This took five minutes to do. Give it a try sometime. Bon appetit.
By now, all the card carrying New Yorkers know about the MTA subway fare increase and as expected we are all rather upset about it because services remain lackluster while ridership seems to be up more and more each day but it is what it is. The reason I’m posting something is because the other day when I went to refill/replace my card, I saw the sign posting below as I began my transaction. Yep. If you want a new card you will be charged an additional $1 so you might want to hold onto a couple of your depleted ones so you can just refill them and not face the additional charge. I guess someone finally decided that all the tens of thousands of plastic cards that are laying around in the stations and in the streets are unnecessary litter.
