A magnificent display that happens every spring. […]

Christmas lights are everywhere in Westchester this time of year – from the spectacular to the gaudy to the very simple.   So I’m putting up a very simple display today to show how simple sometimes is better than over-the-top. This is a balcony from a pre-war building in downtown […]

Ford Thunderbird Convertible – c1956 – White Plains NY

Ok, I’ve gotta admit, I’m not much of a car person.  For me, a car is transportation.  Sure I like a nice car, but its not the be-all and end- all of my life. However – every once in a while you see a car that says “WOW!”  Now, not […]
