A Day in New York, On Camera

Broadway Autumn Street Fair

We were in the city this Saturday and just happened to pass by this street fair at Broadway between Waverly St. and 14th St.. Let’s let the pictures tell the story. Continue reading


Re-publishing Bizarre Mooncakes

I accidentally published Bizarre Mooncakes yesterday and immediately un-published it. Today I re-published it and found it didn’t show up at the top as I expected it to be. So in case you missed this very “delicious” post, here it is.

Before the show I was saying to my hubby that a race car driver would have nothing but upper body strength, when lower body is probably the more important portion in dancing. It turns out that Continue reading
