Picture of the Day ... yes, I'm warm!

NYC Subway Banned Dogs Unless They Fit In a Bag, Dog Owners Did Not Disappoint

The rules are very clear when it comes to carrying animals on the NYC subway: “No person may bring any animal on or into any conveyance or facility unless enclosed in a container.” But the rules don’t say anything about the size of the animal, and as you can see from this picture, some people got really creative in order to avoid paying a fine.

 And others with their subway riding pets.....

Step out of the box with this  pasta salad recipe that's full of authentic Southwestern flavors.


  • 1 pound penne, ziti, or other medium pasta shape
  • 1 (16-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen corn, thawed
  • 2 cups (about 1 pint) cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta to desired doneness; drain, rinse under cold water, and drain again. 
  2. In a large bowl, mix together remaining ingredients; stir in pasta. Cover and chill for about 1 hour.

Stewart is known for his liaisons with women and has eight children, by five different mothers

Sadly yesterday an old high school friend passed away. Jerry Beverman. He had a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was the drummer in the Pageants Band. I know his family is heartbroken as Jerry was a great guy. 
Rest in Peace Jerry.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.

Save the Eagles Day is observed annually on the 10th of January. Some species of eagles are on the endangered list. However, due to the work of scientists and the public, the Bald Eagle was removed from this list in June 2007.
There are more than 70 species of eagles throughout the world.  The only exception is Hawaii, where no species of eagles reside. Poaching, pesticides and other dangers continue to threaten eagle populations.
