I thought you all would want to know that you can all consider yourselves genius readers. Have a Happy New Year's Eve!

To quote from the NY Times regarding how much power the ball is going to save:
"...The new ball will use about 15,000 watts compared to the old ball’s 30,000 watts....Power up 10 toasters, keep them toasting for six hours — the length of time the ball is lighted — and that will be the equivalent amount of electricity. “With half the amount of power, you’re getting twice the amount of light, so it’s four times more efficient,” said Brett Andersen, general manager of Focus Lighting."
I have family in town for the weekend, we're planning to watch the ball drop from 7th Avenue and Central Park South, and then stroll through Central Park to watch the fireworks. :)
What are you doing for New Year's Eve?

Have a great weekend!
I almost used this last one on my Holiday Cards this year.

This morning I noticed the apostrophes had changed back to quotes, so I give up. From here on out, when I get emails about the grammatical errors showing in the sidebar, I’ll just respond that I like quote marks better and that I’m starting a trend.
Do you think that will work?

In keeping with the grand tradition instigated by John Scalzi, I hereby present you a picture of some cats, entitled "Cat Stairs" by fofurasfelinas.
Since the site overhaul was pretty substantial, (and took me longer than I planned) I decided more than one cat was merited.
On a side note, if any of you happen to know how to code Blogger html to allow a third column on the left, please drop me a line, I could use the help. :)

Fall leaves lay thick upon the grass as far as the eye could see. They beaconed to be played in, and this gentleman blissfully answered the call.
I turned around just in time to see him plop down onto the ground and proceed to move his arms and legs back and forth with a bagel and coffee clutched in his left hand. It was just like little kids playing in the snow, sans coffee of course.
He was ecstatic, his coffee didn't spill, and I was happy to get the shot.
Fall is my favorite time of year.

Note to self: break out winter gear and find gloves.
So without further ado, I bring you the Holiday Market at Columbus Circle.
Somehow I've managed to miss this event for the past two years that I've lived here.
I discovered the market after strolling down Columbus Avenue last week during the Lincoln Center tree lighting celebration. I made it down to Columbus Circle and voila, there they were all these little booths set-up on the corner of Central Park.
Everyone was bundled up.
Here's the view facing the Time Warner building.
And a fabulous booth I found along the way. *grin*
Chocolate dipped strawberries.
And delicious looking candied apples. yum!
If you happen to stop by the holiday fair, drop us a line in the comments section to and let me know what you saw, bought, or ate. :)

What do you think? Should I have gone with the B&W?
