Michelangelo Hotel Room
Al with Esat Aloshi at Rosie O'Grady's
We always stay at the Michelangelo. Everything is around
Food: Carmine’s 44th and Broadway. They tell you to split entrees…because they are so huge. Salad for one and pasta for one will still leave food on your plate. Be prepared to wait a while. Its popular.
Carnegie Deli. .a NY must. Huge sandwiches but very good. Landmark place. 52nd /7th. Alternative with great desserts, Roxy Deli. 47th on TS.
Ben Bensons for steak but I prefer Uncle Jacks 56th st. or Ruth Chris….yes …Ruth Chris, next door to the hotel.
Ellen’s starlight diner, brk, lunch, or dinner. Singing waiters cheap food. Great experience.
Chinese…WO Pah….(call me about this one)
Get the 27.50 subway card….good for a week, will save you over a hundred dollars or more on cab fare and it’s fun and safe.
Food: McCormick and Kuleto’s. waterfront. Great seafood, a tad pricy, entrees around 25 to 30 but every table has a great view of the water including
ELO trading post. On Sutter. Most magnificent Asian fusion food around. Butternut squash dumplings and ribs the size of
Uncle Vitos. Pasta and ravioli and home made pizza. Less than ten bucks and cheap wine and beer. Bush @ Mason.
Sears….like the store …..on Sutter. Home of silver dollar pancakes, great breakfast, super reuben sandwiches and full meals at a very low price.
Aliottos, Scomas, seafood at the wharf…lot of money touristy, good..but touristy.
Clam chowder in the bowl which is made of cut out sourdough bread. Five bucks and great...Pier 39 at the Wharf.

Ironic isn’t it, that the wounded terrorist (and yes, that’s what he is) is being cared for at a Jewish hospital. I wonder if he will sue for not taking him to a Muslim hospital(if there are any). I know the care he receives will be as good as the wounded and maimed(because of him and his brother) He harmed. You know the answer is yes. Maybe we need to fall back and realize that there is a difference between the words “safe” and “safer”. There are those who would kill as many of us as they can, despite the fact they came here to avoid persecution from their homeland. Don’t kid yourself. We are not out of the woods. Do they appreciate us?Despite the fact they were welcomed here and had the chance to go to college here, do they….really? How nervy of this young Hitler wannabe to party with his so called “friends” two nights after trying to blow some of them up. He is handcuffed to his bed, which I hope he wets when he thinks of what awaits him when he recovers. Oh…wait!! I forgot. We will give him every imaginable right to a fair trial. Like the bearded Major at

The legendary Ford Mustang was introduced on this date in 1964 for a base price of around 2,365.00. In 1964 I didn’t have 2300. I didn’t have 300. But I was happy. I was driving a four year old car and not complaining. When people today see that price they give it a big WOW!!! But when you look closer and use your memory you can remember a lot of us didn’t have that amount of cash then. If you could buy a new Mustang today for that price you would be in high cotton but you cant. 28,000 is a more likely figure (if you’re lucky). In 1964, 500.00 a month was a decent salary. Creditors were not as liberal then. 500.00 would buy groceries, pay the rent and utilities and fill you car up. Now, 500.00 wont make a house note. The point here is we live on what we make. Today as then, things adjust themselves. Sure you could buy two bags of groceries that would fill both arms for 10.00.But ten bucks was hard to come by. A burger at Burger Chef was 30 cents. A combo now is 7.00. If you missed a house note, they were ready to foreclose. No ands, if’s or buts. Now you lose a house…..get another in three years. Credit cards? If you had them there was usually a 200.00 limit. Now, that’s dinner for three at a five star. People did seem to live on what they made a little better than we do today. Don’t tell me about the good old days. I remember too well not having enough to get through the week.
Time to get rid of the drama. For those of us who pay taxes and maybe get a refund, we are okay. I still have a problem with those who PAY NOT TAXES and get a refund, but whatever. I am glad to pay my taxes and at the end of the year, refund or not, felt I was keeping my country afloat. What is bothersome is when you pay that money and it is frittered away. When I give to charity, I designate where it goes. When I tithe, same thing. I wish we could designate a portion of our tax Dollars to (A) education (B) war effort, (C) infrastructure and (D) money to depots and people who do not deserve it. In that case there would be none to (D) and less to (B) than (A) and (C). I would give sparingly to (E) congressmen’s salaries and (F) nothing at all to ventures like companies that make electric cars that will not run. That leaves 20 letters in the alphabet and no money for them. Pay this window and be quiet……what did the man say? There are only two things in this life that are for sure. DEATH AND TAXES.
Here we go again!!! Last week the president was flogged for calling the
We had a film in school (6th grade) talking about how someday we would fly like an airplane, only under our own power. We all laughed and made fun. Don’t laugh. That day may not be far off. We are already using robots in the operating rooms of hospitals around the country and world for that matter. We are now talking of robotic cars that can drive themselves. We already have cars that can park themselves. An article in the news this morning said that we will have robotic sensors to keep us from speeding. That means a speeder could be apprehended by a robot. The question in the news this morning was this: If a robotic sensor stops a robotically driven vehicle and the car gets a ticket: “Who pays the ticket”? The car manufacturer, the owner of the car, or the robot who was driving? And you think we have trouble with DUI’S?
I know, I know. I shouldn’t even mention it. But the question is bound to come up. In light of the stabbings in
Despite her detractors Margaret Thatcher will go down as one of the true hero’s of the world. Maybe only Winston Churchill did as much or more for the
