Ole’s Creek

So, thanks to (a tragic) incident upstate a few years ago, the Binney Park fireworks are now aimed down our creek, and we get a great, great show (our two cats don’t appreciate it and have fled to the attic, but you can’t please everyone).

Binney has now concluded, so I’ll direct my gaze south and catch the Tod’s Point display. What a cool place to live . Best part? Listening to the squeals of delight of small kids up and down the creek exclaiming at the show. Neat.

Hope for the Mets?

Federal  judge doesn’t seem impressed with Picard’s theory of Madoff liability for the Wilpons. I’ll concede I’m a legal dummy, but I never thought much of this case. Good – maybe we can keep Reyes now.

Sponge Tech Bob trying to sell WGCH – good luck, fella

The indicted slimeball owner of WGCH is asking $1.25 million for the radio station he ruined. I’m sure he could use some bucks for his legal defense and commissary expenses later, but a million bucks for “Polka Night Saturday”? Give me an effin’ break.

So when did this start?

Binney Park is already staked out for the fireworks tonight. There was still room when I drove by at 1, but gee, what happened to strolling down at twilight? Everybody’s booking in advance these days.

So what?

Washington state closes tourism office. In this Internet age, is there any possible reason tourists need state employees to steer them around on a visit? Multiply Washington’s savings by fifty, and you’re talking some real money.

One swallow doth not a summer make

Oh geeze, come on!  A large sale in Belle Haven, and I’m delighted at Joe Barbeieri’s good fortune, but this lady is speaking from her bottom:

“This record-setting sale aligns with what we’re experiencing in Greenwich, which is that high-end buyers are returning to the market, and they are acting on special opportunities such as the Hascoe family estate,” Kathy Korte, president and chief executive officer of Sotheby’s International, said in a statement.

Northern California would probably be glad to let them go

SoCal legislator wants to secede.  My guess is that no one wants any part of Los Angeles, and who can blame them?

Back from fishing

Bradley Smoker

Courtesy of Captain Louis VanLeeuwan (Rick Muskus, First Mate).  A couple of decent sized bluefish, one of which is in my smoker now, getting ready to be made into dip. As delicious as the Fjord Fisherie’s smoked marlin, to my taste, but I like catching my own. And besides, I haven’t seen a marlin around here in years.
