I want to introduce you to one of my best friends.  She is slightly more than 2 feet tall.  She has two different colored eyes - one is brown and one is blue.  She loves my company, and greets me exuberantly every time she sees me.  We spend a lot of time just walking, neither of us saying a thin...
I have had occasion lately to take the normal commuter's route from Monroe NY to Westchester County NY and back, and I've had the "pleasure" of doing it at rush hour.  For those of you who do not live in the area, this drive constitutes a 40 mile route on a three lane highway, and includes a ride...

OK this is the stupidest blog I have ever written.  I spent about 30 minutes typing a blog about a real topic but somehow it didn't auto-save after the first few minutes, and I didn't save-it-on-purpose, so it's GONE.  And I just am not feeling "it" for that topic now.  I'll have to save it for a...

The United States Military Academy at West Point is a mere half hour from Monroe NY.  It is located on the western shores of the Hudson River, a little over an hour, 20 minutes from New York City.  Approximately 4,400 cadets are at West Point at any given time, with 1,000 graduating each year and...
Happy Autumnal Equinox!   Is everyone planning a party to celebrate?  The equinox only occurs two times a year, so it's worth a party - almost like a birthday but twice as often!  The autumnal equinox is one of only two days that a person standing on the Equator could see the sun passing directly...
This is the last weekend for the 2011 NY Renaissance Faire, located in Sterling Forest in Tuxedo Park, NY, a mere 15 minute drive from Monroe, NY.  The faire will be held this Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 7pm.  Tickets can be purchased online (at the link below), and they cost $20 for an adu...
No discussion of the Monroe NY area could be complete without mentioning the Woodbury Common Premium Outlets. The outlets are located on 498 Red Apple Court in Central Valley, NY, a mere 10 minutes from the center of Monroe, and right off the NY State Thruway (exit 16).  This is such a popular de...
