Hi everyone:

We've been putting in long days and some longer evenings and sometimes we're just too tired to get these Entries out there. Thanks to my good friend Mike Mirkin, I was due to go to the Yankee game at their new stadium on Tuesday evening but a line of severe storms cancelled that. Not wanting to dissapoint me, Mike re-schedulled our great tickets to the following day in the first game of a double header. We both took the

A-Train to the Bronx to watch the Bombers win. They later won the night game as well to pull ahead of Baltimore in a very close Pennant Race.


The next day MJ and I got an early start and took the subway up to the North Bronx to visit the Bronx Zoo. I'm sure most of you have heard that on the following day

(Friday)a tourist intentially jumped into the Tiger's Den and was mauled by a 4 year old 700 pound tiger named "Yuri". So far the news is all in favor of saving the animal as he did nothing wrong. We agree!

Tomorrow we head for SOHO, Little Italy and Chinatown so STAY TUNED!
