Located quite a distance from the 23rd parallel, my island is right there, through the living room, just beyond the French doors, and situated about two-thirds of the way from the wall in my humble kitchen.
This is the place where my fan club, my girls and the occasional guest, get to see the real me.

A perfect palate cleanser. Now if you can just find the yellow tomatoes and Cuban cheese.
Yesterday , was one of those days where I just needed to recoup from a very intense stretch consulting work. Longer days than usual, and lots of New York Metro pressure than I would like on a daily basis. So, with the weatherman telling me that we would have some fairly nice outlooks for this weekend, I decided to spend less time playing with my computers. My plans included included resuming and catching up with some of my blogging.. You've seen some of that already . But my highlight for the day was for me and my Queen to head down to Chinatown in NYC. Our plans: do some food shopping , correction some "window" food shopping and course, just take in as much we could of the Chinatown scene. Given that Little Italy is also right next door to Chinatown, we would stop there too. If you do not know, Manhattan's Chinatown nowadays contently fuses with it's Italian neighbors. Great combo, isn't it ? I sure do think so.
