Blizzard That Never Came New York

The BLIZZARD of 2015 ???

IT NEVER CAME !!!
Now This Was a Blizzard !

Looks Like Some Time in The 40s ???



The News Stations wouldn't stop, and I was sick and tired of all the Paranoia about 
this Storm, how big it would be, maybe New York's Biggest Snowstorm Ever ? Not !!! Not even close. I couldn't believe it when I walked out my door this morning and there was a mere 4.5 inches of snow on the ground. "What the FU_K ???" !!! A Friggin Pimple of a snowstorm. I've been dealing with snowstorms all my life. I've always loved and cherished them and excepted them as part of everyday life of living in the North Eastern part of The United States. What's the big deal? We've seen it all before.

This last two mayors are Alarmist Pussys, scaring people and shutting everything down. They shut down the Subway and bus service, closed the Bridges and Tunnels, and scared many businesses into closing and losing a TON of FRIGGING MONEY. "What The FUCK???"

I walked out of my house and made my way over to my Second Home, the venerable 
Caffe Dante on Macdougal Street in New York's Greenwich Village, right around the block from my house. I go there everyday. I've been going there since 1985 and my first trip to Italy. There're my family over there, Mario Flotta, ANthony, Mario Jr., and all the sweet waitresses over the years. Caffe Dante is Never Closed. Infact, there's just one day a year the Caffe is closed, and that's Christmas Day. They don't close down for snowstorms, blizzards, or Hurricane Warnings, and not even Blackouts. When the Blackout of 2002 hit, the first place I head was Caffe Dante ...  I was making a Bee-Line for the Caffe when the Blackout just hit and I ran into my buddy Joe C as I was walking over there. Hey Danny, what are you doing he asked as he was on a payphone. "I'm going to Caffe Dante," I told him. "Mind if I come," he retorted. Of Course Not. So we headed over. It was about 4 in the afternoon. Soon, one-by-one, some more of our friends joined us til we had a table of 9 people ... We stayed there, drinking wine, eating sandwiches, hanging out with each other, chatting and making the best of a bad situation, there was a citywide Blackout, and nobody had any Electricity, including Caffe Dante, but they were open under Candle Power. They weren't going to let a Blackout stop them. "Dante is Never Closed." "What?" What was that, "Dante is never closed!" Well this is 10:30 AM Tuesday January 27th, 2015, the day after the So-Called Biggest Storm ever, a so-called Blizzard? There's just 4.5" of Snow on the ground. "What The Fuck?"
" Caffe Dante is Closed !!!!" This city is turning into woosy town. "WTF??"
 
CAFFE DANTE

Greenwich Village, New York
This Snowstorm was a farce. The whole dam city is closed down. Not many businesses are open, and for what? Nothing Fucking Happened! My # 1 morning cafe closed (Once Upon a Tart), my afternoon and evening spot, Caffe Dante is closed, "What The Fu_k?" I head up the block, "Caffe Reggio better be opened," I say to myself, "or I'll have a Fit!" Well, "Thank Goodness for Something! Caffe Reggio is open," but I make a quick decision and decide not to go there yet, I'll probably have to go there at least once or twice later on in the day. I'll head up to The Marlton Hotel and have a coffee there, in the nice comfy lobby, a place I usually go for my second coffee of the day on Sundays. Well, I'm here now, hardly anything else is open. I just heard a lady (a guest at the hotel) asking if The Metropolitan Museum of Art is open. "It's not," she is told. Every Fucking Thing is Shut down! For what? We've been through all this before, much worse, and they didn't shut down the Subway and scare people into shutting down businesses because vehicular street traffic was banned and the Subway and all Mass Transit was shut down. "What The Fuck!" "Don't do this Shit Again!"

Phi Phi Island Thailand Bangkok


Koh Phi Phi 
Phi Phi Island

A Beach on Phi Phi



The Pool at Cabana Hotel Resort Phi Phi Island Thailand


I took my first and much anticipated trip to Asia in the spring of 1996. I flew to Hong Kong, did Macao, and flew off to Bangkok were a spent a few exciting days before going down south to Phuket, Phi Phi, and Krabi and some of the Worlds most beutiful and exotic beaches. The above picture is the pool at the Cabana Hotel Resort which is direct center of Phi Phi Island. At this point on the island, it is a mere 1,000 feet wide, and is something to see when you're swimming in the pool with to bodies of water on each side of you, just a few feet away. There is a main hotel building along with Bungalos that are available at very low prices. When I was there in 1996, my Bungalow with a fan rented for a poultry $10 a night. A steal! A bungalow with Air Conditioning rented for $3 more a night. I have no idea what these bungalows would rent for these days, but would guess they are are about $24 to $30 a night, which would still be a pretty good deal, I could be wrong. Anyway, Phi Phi Island is quite gorgeous. Its a pretty small island that has small mountains on each end that are joined by the narrow stirp of land with its beautiful beach in the center. The beauty of this island is quite stunning. The island is quiet, and quite nice, but I don't reccomend a stay of more than 2 days here, it can get a little boring. 
I never even hear of Phi Phi until I went down and was staying on the more famous and much larger island of Phuket. Phuket is quite lovely, and in comparison to Phi Phi, it is large, about 40 miles long, has beautiful beaches (especially Ria Beach), mountains, jungles and forest, and a major nightlife center with Go Go Bars (and Girls) .. I went to Phi Phi after seeing ads on the numerous little street travel agents that advertise tours and stays on Phi Phi .. 
From Phi Phi i went to the gorgeous coastline of Krabi and stayed at a lovely spot on the coast.

HOW TO PICK UP CHICKS

ERIC Weber’s 1970 tome How to Pick Up Women has over 3,000,000 copies in print – if you believe the marketing. “So effective it should be declared illegal!” – so some say. Team it with Weber’s The Complete Guide to America’s Best Pick up Spots!: 910 Fantastic Places to Pick up Girls! One Hundred Best Opening Lines and you men cannot fail to pull. See also Eric Weber’s Winning With Womenand The Shy Person’s Guide to Love and Loving.
 
Weber self-published his book He took out an advert in Penthouse magazine and waited. And then the orders started to come in.
Weber told People in 1980:
 
 
 
“I began noticing the women my mother always said I should marry,” says Weber. “They were attractive, they were well dressed, they went to good colleges, they had good jobs. I said, ‘Aha! I’ve got a good job. I should be dating some of them.’ But they looked terrifying to me. I’d see them coming out of Bonwit’s, and I would quake at the prospect of walking up to them and saying, ‘Hi, I’d like to meet you.’ “
Is he single?
“I picked up my wife, Joanna, in a singles bar while I was doing research for the book in 1965. This pretty, very young-looking blonde tried to squeeze between me and a friend. I blocked her way and she said, ‘Excuse me,’ and I said, ‘No.’ She said, ‘Why are you doing this?’ and I said, ‘Because you’re much too pretty to let get away.'”
 
PICKING UP GIRLS MADE EASY will teach you a whole new system for picking up girls — a system that is so complete and so absolutely foolproof you’ll soon be picking up girls automaticallly!!! Absolutely everything is spelled out for you… Picking up girls can be as easy as opening a beer! And the more you listen to the album, the better you’ll get. It’s INCREDIBLE!”
In 1978, How to Pick Up Girls was made into a film. The New York Times review told us:
Though Desi Arnaz Jr. gets star billing in How to Pick Up Girls, the film’s true leading man is third-billed Fred McCrarren. He plays a clueless Nebraska boy whose efforts to score with chicks in the Big City come to naught. Finally he stumbles upon the “secret” to successful dating with the help of his superstud roommate (Desi Arnaz Jr.) McCrarren is transformed into a makeout king–much to consternation of the nice girl (Bess Armstrong) who likes him for himself. Based on the book by Eric Weber (which one supposes was supposed to have been taken seriously), How to Pick up Girls is a made-for-TV smarmfest. At that, it is a few notches above the standard “horny teenager” flick which glutted the market in the early 1980s. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
