I live on Long Island and one of my favorite places is the North Fork. This area is home to many of Long Island's wineries and now's the time to enjoy tasting new vintages. Here's a link to LI's Wine Country.
Forgotten New York
New York City has an incredible history in all facets of life. But sometimes it's the little things that bring back special memories of an era long gone. If you enjoy a little (or a lot) of nostalgia every now and then, Kevin Walsh has put together an incredible site of places in NY 'forgotten' until now. Click here and enjoy.
Singer / Songwriter Jim Dawson has been making music since the seventies. He regularly performs throughout the NYC area. Visit his website here: http://www.jimdawson.com/
Hot! Hot! Hot!
The lower-48 U.S. states experienced the warmest year on record in 2012,
eclipsing the previous record by one degree, government scientists said Tuesday.
The government's temperature record for the lower 48, which exclude Hawaii
and Alaska, goes back to 1895. In all the previous years on record, average
temperatures varied by a total of about four degrees, the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration said, making the jump in 2012 particularly stark.
