Playing It Cool

In last Friday's post I included a news story in which a Fred collided with a bear. Well, that very same day I had an equally harrowing encounter when I was very nearly attacked by a goose: You can be certain that when I saw the geese I gave them plenty of room. For one... Continue Reading →

BSNYC Friday Fun Quiz!

Memorial Day weekend is upon us, and I can feel you've got antses in your chamoiseses, but you're not going anywhere until you finish this quiz. So sit still dammit! Of course it's also Fleet Week here in New York, and they no longer close the west side path to cyclists while it's happening, which... Continue Reading →
