It’s good to see all of you, hope most of you aren’t too hungover after celebrating the non-end of the world. If any of you have a cure for removing REM from my internal playlist, I’d be forever grateful.

Next week will be a bit unusual. I have posts from the Home-Ec 101 Crew lined up to keep you entertained while I’m in NYC for Blog World Expo. I have some time to explore the city on Friday before my afternoon flight. Is there something other than the usual suggestions (Statue of Liberty etc) that I shouldn’t miss? I do plan on visiting Ground Zero.

And finally, all electronic versions of Home-Ec 101 Skills for Everyday Living are on sale through May 25, 2011 for $4.99. If there is a new grad in your life, this may be a good gift idea.

If you have any wild parties while I’m gone, please clean up after yourselves. There’s a whole section on cleaning if you run into trouble.

See you next week!

    If you want the real 'New York' experience you need to eat food from a street vendor & ride the subway in rush hour. 🙂

    The Statue of Liberty is a tourist trap. Take the Staten Island Ferry from South Ferry (southern tip of Manhattan) and you get to see it without all the crowds. Ellis Island is worth a visit though, especially if you had relatives that came through there.
    With limited time you might consider the Circle Line ferry which gives you a view on Manhattan and points out landmarks. The bus tours aren't bad too.

    Have a safe, fruitful, and fun! trip. We promise to clean up before you get home.

    Thanks for the heads up on the $4.99 download 🙂 I'm downloading as I type.

    Cure for your REM earworm: Listen to Cher's "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves." (I got this suggestion from a good friend.) Warning, the cure may be worse than the disease.

    Around the corner from Ground Zero is Trinity Church. It served as a rest area for the 9/11 workers and is very inspiring. Have a fun, safe trip.

      That reminds me, I want to see St. Malachy's while I'm there. It's on 49th and is known as the Actors' Chapel.
