"Natural" Pools in the Atlantic Ocean...
Originally uploaded by thegirlio

Ever since I went to Portugal earlier this year, I have been wanting to plan another trip overseas. Thankfully, PBS's show, "Spain on the Road Again" has been keeping me temporarily satiated. Mario Batali, Mark Bittman, Gwenyth Paltrow and Claudia Bassols enjoy the culture, the people and most importantly the food that Spain has to offer. As a result of watching this show, I am now obsessed with making and eating pan con tomate on a daily basis. There are only 3 episodes left in the series and I will be sad to see it end.

The New York Public I love thee.

The New York Public Library is probably one of the most underrated places in NYC. I always tell anyone and everyone to take advantage of their resources. I find most people are reluctant to go because they are so used to paying for their entertainment. I say screw netflix, itunes and barnes and nobles. What other place in NYC can provide you with an endless selection of books, CDs, dvds...sometimes really hard to find stuff too...all for free? You can reserve materials online and they will even send you an email to let you know they are available for pick up. The NYPL is hip to the 21st more searching through the stacks for materials.

They even have a facebook cool is that!

Two of my favorite things....

Tom and Jerry cartoons and the music of Louis Jordan.
