"Bike Ride"



Its Sunday and I went for a bike ride today in my quest to get things back to the way they were.. I know it can never be the same but its close. I felt better today than the last time I went for a ride. I also seem to be going further than the last time with no pain.. I think my bicycle legs are coming back..The rest of the week days are slowing coming back to do what I was doing before.. Meetings with friends, who were really glad to see me and going to my favorite thrift store. Plus other stuff... "Don't overdue it", My Dad used to say.. I have more friends in the building now and on occasion I'm hanging around in the community room.. There is a large screen TV in there.. I hope to watch a few N.Y. Giant football games there. I play cards 2 nights a week which is a lot of fun.. I seem to have lost interest in taking pictures. I don't know whats up with that. I have my camera with me all the time in the car but the desire hasn't come back, maybe soon I hope....Just an update now guys, stay tuned..

"I Remember This"



I walked into the kitchen and there was a newspaper on the kitchen table. This was it. I was 7 years old. A few weeks before this incident my Grandmother and Aunt Mary took me to New York to visit their friends in the Italian section of the City. That's what they said. I remember that.. We rode the Subway, I seen a drunk sleeping on the street in the Bowery, went to the Bronx Zoo and ate at the Auto-Mat.. We also went to the top of the Empire State Building. My Aunt picked me up so I could see over the side.. I remember the cars looked like ants.. The elevator ride to the top was one of fastest rides I had ever been on.. Irony is years later I thought I would go to New York and take pictures from the top of the World Trade Center. I never went.. A few weeks later, you know what happened... I've had an amazing life so far.. I have some of the greatest memories..Story of the plane crash below.. Stay tuned...

On this day in History.... A United States military plane crashes into the Empire State Building on this day in 1945, killing 14 people. The freak accident was caused by heavy fog. The B-25 Mitchell bomber, with two pilots and one passenger aboard, was flying from New Bedford, Massachusetts, to LaGuardia Airport in New York City. As it came into the metropolitan area on that Saturday morning, the fog was particularly thick. Air-traffic controllers instructed the plane to fly to Newark Airport instead. This new flight plan took the plane over Manhattan; the crew was specifically warned that the Empire State Building, the tallest building in the city at the time, was not visible. The bomber was flying relatively slowly and quite low, seeking better visibility, when it came upon the Chrysler Building in midtown. It swerved to avoid the building but the move sent it straight into the north side of the Empire State Building, near the 79th floor. Upon impact, the plane’s jet fuel exploded, filling the interior of the building with flames all the way down to the 75th floor and sending flames out of the hole the plane had ripped open in the building’s side. One engine from the plane went straight through the building and landed in a penthouse apartment across the street. Other plane parts ended up embedded in and on top of nearby buildings. The other engine snapped an elevator cable while at least one woman was riding in the elevator car. The emergency auto brake saved the woman from crashing to the bottom, but the engine fell down the shaft and landed on top of it. Quick-thinking rescuers pulled the woman from the elevator, saving her life. Since it was a Saturday, fewer workers than normal were in the building. Only 11 people in the building were killed, some suffering burns from the fiery jet fuel and others after being thrown out of the building. All 11 victims were workers from War Relief Services department of the National Catholic Welfare Conference, into the offices of which the plane had crashed. The three people on the plane were also killed. An 18 foot by 20 foot hole was left in the side of the Empire State Building. Though its structural integrity was not affected, the crash did cause nearly $1 million in damages, about $10.5 million in today’s money.

"Computer Dilemma"

The story goes on .. OK, I brought my "so-called broken" computer to "Best Buy" where I bought it.. The day before I bought a new computer and I set it up.. It took about two hours which is not bad because I know how to synchronize it.. But I digress.. I waited in line after I got a "reservation" (don't ask") for a few minutes, 15 to be exact and explained to the technician that it went out and wouldn't start. He said "OK turn it on and let me see what what it does". I did and it worked.. I was astonished, I stood there speechless. I told him I tried for two days turning it on and off to make it work and all I ever got was a blue screen. I went there and Windows started.. OK, I needed a back up computer and was thinking about it for a long time and I got one but this is unbelievable.. He said I might need a new Hard drive.. A whole range of emotions went through me. I tried everything. I thought if I could get a screen I could fix it. Only the blue one ever came up.. No mouse arrow, nothing and then approx 48 hours later it works. I don't know what to say.. I'm using it right now and it does everything, it works fine.. I think its a giant conspiracy to make me look like an idiot. .. Just kidding ...........Stay tuned..

"Computer Break Down"

My five year old Asus Lap Top stopped last night and I had to buy a new computer. It had Screen freeze so I tried to shut it down and it made a weird noise and now only a blue screen. I really liked that computer.. I pride myself on knowing how to fix and run these things but I cannot figure out how to just get a screen to work on.. I'll have to ask a technician.. Stay tuned..
