The Gates

Got some minutes to kill here. Clearly my attempts to upload photos directly from my Treo to this blog have failed and I have no idea what chaos my attempts have thus far wrought.

I’m sitting on a bench on Central Park West waiting for John and Jennifer to come back from some snooty art gallery. Kind of nippy here, but not the arctic frost of Ottawa. I just walked through the park and saw the Gates — confounded by thousands of annoying tourists. Still, it’s a pretty scene and, given the price, it’s a wonderful exhibit. Later.

Brunch In Manhattan

Greetings, my droogies. Time to test out my mobile blogging software’s image upload facility. if this works, you will see below a photo of me having brunch in the Barking Dog luncheonette on 77th street. If it doesn’t work, use your imagination…

Making Money On The Road

Greetings Webizens. Still on the road to New York… we’re approaching Binghampton now, a place with nostalgic significance since John and I (and two other friends) drove by here 19 years ago on our last road trip together to NYC. Back then the Beastie Boys were blaring “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” so our mantra was “no breakfast till Binghampton!” Of course the Beasties are playing in the car now, too.

Technology has really changed my world. In the past hour I’ve managed to blog twice from a moving vehicle and negotiate a deal with the Toronto Star for an article on avian flu –which means this trip is now tax deductible! God bless my Treo.

Greetings From the Road

Hello readers. I am writing to you from the back of a car at the US-Canada border near Kingston. Crossing wasn’t an issue, but the asswipe border dude did single me out for a little attitude. I took a picture of John and Jen in the front seat but I haven’t quite figured out how to upload pics from my treo directly to this blog. Baby steps, my friends, baby steps. We will speak again soon…
