Memorial Ride

Getting the groove of riding my bike again isn't that easy for me. I know it might not look it, but I am lazy -- real lazy -- especially since the last couple of days in New York have been ridiculously hot. However getting to the destination makes it worth it... sometimes...

Architectual design of Green-Wood Cemetery


Pictures cannot gander the beauty of this cemetery; it's somewhere you need to see for yourself. I have a secret fascination with cemeteries and the eerie feeling and smell of a quiet cemetery just seem soothing to me. The entrance alone says all -- I just had to go in --. The array of nineteenth century architectural design are breathtaking --- too DIE for!

My Love Affair with Bow Ties



2012 is definitely the year of the Bow Ties. I am not a fan of the ready-tied however my love affair is with the authenticity and creativity of self-tied bow ties.

Where did bow ties come from?

During the Prussian wars of the 17th Century, Croatian mercenaries would wear colorful scarves around their necks to denote rank and distinguish offer from enlisted men. The French, who were fighting alongside the Croats, were of course impressed and took the idea back home -- and these are the results -- Bow tie madness!
