Happy Shamrock Shake Day!

Go ahead and call us anti-establishment for not wanting to wish you a happy Paddies Day with a shamrock, or by becoming a drunken, vile, fool at a parade.

Enjoy your shamrock shake.  Happy Paddies Day!

Emergency Garbage Box

With the advent of cell phone being nearly everywhere, most of the old emergency call boxes that dot New York City have been disconnected.  Thanks to the green initiative, these old call boxes are being reused in their present locations as an emergency garbage box.

Coca-Cola and coffee never looked so glamorous!

The Shamrock Shake!

Last week we were suckered into buying a Shamrock Shake at McDonald’s, and by suckered, we mean had to go out of our way to find a Shamrock Shake at a McDonald’s.

After visiting four McDonald’s over the course of two days, we finally got our hands on this little green shake that is supposed to drive people insane with desire.  We went, we bought, we sipped, we were disappointed at first with it, we were in lust with it several sips later, and then we finally had ourselves a belly ache.

We can now say that while we still aren’t sure how this was ever something that drove people to scour the scores of New York City McDonald’s in search of it, but we can say that we drank a green shake like a gluttonous fool until it hurt.


Empire State Building vs. Nature

Due to budget cuts once manicured parks have been left to their own will.

And it’s actually fun to see nature do it’s thing without a care in the world as to what is happening to the millions of people around it.

Go Green For You And Yours

Given that it is Earth Day, we want to remind you that you can easily help go green and limit your carbon footprint by switching to wind power as a source of electricity. 


We made the switch years ago and have 100% of our electrical usage coming to us via wind power by way of the Con Edison electrical network — instead of the old fashion nuclear and cold power plants.

It’s not some mythical science that doesn’t exist or something that costs an arm or a leg to have.    In fact, it became much less costly last year over the year before — read our post from last summer that covers how it became less costly.

Wouldn’t you feel better about running a dishwasher or your hair dryer knowing that more nuclear waste wasn’t going to come from it?  We hope so!
