Some folks like to get away,
Take a holiday from the neighborhood.
Hop a flight to Miami Beach or to Hollywood.
But I'm takin' a Greyhound on the Hudson River line.
I'm in a New York state of mind.
I've seen all the movie stars in their fancy cars and their limousines.
Been high in the Rockies under the evergreens.
I know what I'm needin', and I don't want to waste more time.
I'm in a New York state of mind.

It was so easy livin' day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
But now I need a little give and take
The New York Times, the Daily News.

It comes down to reality, and its fine with me cause I've let it slide.
I don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside.
I don't have any reasons.
I left them all behind.
I'm in a New York state of mind.

This was one really tasty smoothie! Thank you, bowtie, for your suggestion about steaming the kale.

That sounds a lot like my typical smoothie, but I've been a kale holdout until now. (I do love kale, I've just been clinging to a bias against the idea of having it for breakfast.) Think I'll pick some up at the farmer's market next weekend and give it a whirl. (Get it??? A whirl, see -- oh, forget it.)

Do you think this is one that could actually be "whirled" the night before and just stirred up a bit? I'm not sure how well the peaches would do without some lemon juice. I suppose instead of milk, I could add some orange juice. Actually, we had this one for lunch.

Oh, yeah. I did buy and insulated Alladin smoothie mug with lid & smoothie sized straw. ddeuddeg can't wait to see me trying to get out the door with two mugs: one for my coffee, one smoothie oh, and somewhere in my other bags, my water bottle~ Ugh!

From last week's pub, but posted in response to my comment. bowtie, I know what you mean. Maybe I should have said we do it all for the kids. We do all that we can do so that they can learn well--despite all the crap that goes on. I am so unhappy about having to teach all five of my classes on a cart. I do not even know how many rooms I will be in yet, and whose rooms these will be. Last year, our Assistant Principal, now our Principal said that we should not be in more than two rooms. Yeah, right. I will be teaching Periods 2, 3, 4, 6 & 8 at this point. I cannot see one room being free, at that time of day, for three periods in a row. Then, for 6 & 8, no matter how or where, I still have to pack up my cart and leave whatever room I will be in! I will be spending my entire day packing and unpacking! What a waste of time!

Last week, I already started my back to school anxiety sleeplessness. All of this uncertainty doesn't help. I need to find a way to personalize my cart and make it efficient so that my students have access to work for when they were absent; the current days' work and then, for me, all of the stuff that I need to make my class run smoothly. I also do not know if I will be teaching in classrooms with some kind of "smart board" or not, or a mix of classrooms where I might need to use overheads in some and "smart boards" in others. Whatever it takes, I have to be the best teacher possible for my students. I have to get them excited about learning French and keep that excitement and their interested going, despite all of the obstacles that are put in my way.

Last year, during my formal observation, one of the kids asked a question which lent itself perfectly to going to the back of the room to point out something on the map of France that I had there. I referred to that moment during my post-ob conference. I mentioned that that was one of those teachable moments that allowed me to EASILY use the map in the back of my room to illustrate whatever was asked. Traveling, I won't have a large wall map of France in every room. If I can find one that I really find as useful as that one for my computer, I would still need to boot it up and take more time.

OK. Enough of that. As teachers, as parents, I think we want to do what is best for our kids so that they can become the best that they can be--a little cliché, but I think it works. Off to shower and our dance lesson--maybe some salsa or samba will help!

EDIT: Urg! I tried to post in the new pub and it wound up here! Sorry! I'll try to post it over there!

I agree with this assessment. And based on the reaction, it is a WCC liability issue, meaning they would be pretty stupid to admit any culpability openly in a public forum before ALL of the facts are straight.

I was thinking if I were going to wootleg, I might order some woot plus stuff at the same time. The Chard looks like something I can't resist.

I agree, too, except for the part where he said we can count on the lawyers and bureaucrats to get it resolved quickly. Either he forgot we were talking about NY, or the folks in TX are unaware of how dysfunctional the politicians are hereabouts, or (most likely) that was totally tongue-in-cheek.

White Conundrum, I assume. We've liked each of the several vintages we've had. Haven't tried the red version yet.

Wine on its way to you. Thanks. Get-together sounds like a great idea.

Conundrum generally available here at Costco. Was gifted a 2010 bottle during the holidays and drank in January. Couldn't put my finger on what it was so I looked up the blend. Can't find the 2010 now, replaced with the 2011, but as I recall it had a bit of everything, attempting to appeal to everyone, and I just didn't much care for it.
I'd take Peters Duchess with it's blend of even more grapes over the white Conundrum, especially if price is considered.

It's easier for you to get the Duchess than it is for me, and I only occasionally drink whites, so the Conundrum at $20 seems to work fine for us.

Smoked chicken was great. Took it off a little early, so we ate the breasts and left the thigh/legs for another night. Great match with the Conundrum (white, as you all assumed). The off-dry wine was great with the smoked chicken.

Looking at some the activity on the front page of the ny liquor board it looks like an attempt to severly limit the ability of third parties to conduct transactions in the state. So much for letting free markets prevail.

What are you referring to? I saw the 'Internet' stuff as a response to a request from ShipCompliant, but it specifically does not address the WCC direct from the winery model, just the Internet 3 tier model.

If someone needs a CT wootlegger, I'm also available of course.

Thanks for the offer. SWMBO got to worrying about a sellout, so I'm having it shipped to polarbear this time. It occurs to me that we could have fun touring the Northeast, gathering up our wootlegged wine. Better put the SIWBM back in place. The Rasmussen and Smith offers caved it in temporarily.

I forgot, he may be vacationing in Florida. No problem, as you noted PB took care of it for me this time. When chip gets back in the loop, we'll have to figure out a way to get that OC to him. Maybe meet up in Erie, PA for dinner or something.
