Grand Central Terminal:Happy Birthday!

Today is Grand Central Terminal’s 100th Birthday. It was almost torn down in the 70′s when a group of New Yorkers stopped it. Jackie K. Onassis and Congressman Ed Koch were among them.

My friend Nancy and I have been talking about gathering our German friends together for a traditional meal, and this week it finally took place!  Some guests were from Germany originally; some of us just have a German heritage.

When on Cape Cod, I just have to stop by some of the stores that I pass by…especially on Rt. 6a!  This is what I found this time… I found these prints by Richard Averill Smith. He was a photographer in the early 1900′s. I loved the interiors, so brought them home and hung them [...]
