last day of the year

Nice view of CPS

First day of skating. Loved it!
 Due to an unfortunate and very costly picnic (Problem In Chair, Not In Computer) the tickets I thought I had purchased for the Nutcracker matinee at Lincoln Center were for the night before. So we went skating at Wollman Rink in Central Park instead. Last time I was there—must have been before 2001, when he started managing the place—the name Trump wasn't all over the T-shirts, the Zamboni and the walls. New Yorkers have long considered Trump's one real civic contribution his acceleration of the rink's remodeling back in 1986. However, that bit of credit has long since been undercut by his other "contributions" to quality of life in the city.

I sent this picture of the Zamboni on to my cousin to show another example of the NAME being the BIG deal...he was a little worried about WWIII and I said if it were to destroy the "tower" with the name well it would have to be called WWTRUMP as a trade off??? Not sure of anything when it comes to this strange new world...

Also the skating sounds like a wonderful memorable plan...sorry about the picnic but you are HUMAN and I know how that feels...every time I try to get on the BI ferry I find out!!!!"Your boat? Yesterday.."
