2. Zeppole Made Easy, Recipes, Folklore ...
Food & Cooking - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 00:41:15
Zeppole is no stranger to the United States. If you've been to a street festival in any Little Italy in America, you know zeppole, a kind of fried doughnut that is tossed in a bag with powdered sugar. In Sicily, zeppole are tiny and fluffy and rolled in granulated sugar (that's how I make mine)...

8. Struffala ~ Italian Honey Balls
Travel & Places - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 00:34:29
... the pyramids of honey balls (Stuffala in Italian) start to appear in bakeries. The only problem is all of the bakeries I've bought them from bake them, and I call those "Air Balls", and that's what they taste like.

9. Judy Ferony: A "Deadicated" Lensmaster and All Around Solid Squidizen
Food & Cooking - Tue, 16 Sep 2014 16:14:41
I was raised in the Van Nest section of Morris Park in the Bronx where my family lived and worked for over 100 years. It was a blue collar neighborhood, predominantly Italian American (as well as Irish, German and Jewish).

Pignolata show up all over Sicily under different names pagnuccata, pignoccatta, pignolata - from the word pigna, which means pinecone, the ancient fertility symbol that they resemble. In the eastern part of the island, pignolata are covered on one side by vanilla icing, on the other with chocola...
11. New York City Staycation
Holidays & Celebrations - Tue, 16 Sep 2014 16:03:49
I haven't been able to afford a real vacation since 1996, and even that trip to Disney World wasn't all that. I had planned the trip of a lifetime to the happiest place in the world only to find the hotel I had booked my stay at was still under construction; there's nothing like having to dodge b...

13. The Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band
Food & Cooking - Tue, 16 Sep 2014 16:14:37
It's been said "There is nothing like a Grateful Dead Concert!" and you'll get no arguments from me. As I've mention on my other Lenses I've been to about 250 Grateful Dead concerts and perhaps about 50 Jerry Garcia Band Shows (which I sometimes actually liked better).

14. The Bronx Zoo
Music - Tue, 16 Sep 2014 16:12:36
I'm lucky to have grown up in walking distance of the zoo; I live about a mile away from the Boston Road Entrance of The Bronx Zoo. This is one of the best zoological parks in the country. Did you know that the American Bison was brought back from the brink of extinction here at our facility?
15. It's A Green Thing
Travel & Places - Tue, 16 Sep 2014 16:10:33
Not only is it Kermit's mantra it's been mine too. We are all creatures of habit, and when you grow up in the Bronx being "Green" and Living Healthy is an uphill battle. Luckily me being a deadhead created change in my life that wouldn't have been likely had I not been introduced to that lifestyl...

17. New York, New York; So Nice They Had To Name It Twice
Holidays & Celebrations - Tue, 16 Sep 2014 16:03:46
In a New York Minute is one of my favorite sayings, and it is so true; at any time of the day or night you can find something to do in the city that never sleeps. Like Rome, London, Paris and other world class cities, it's an overwhelming undertaking to be a stranger in this strange land.
18. Top 5 Moments In New York City History ...
Travel & Places - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 04:20:40

19. February 5th Is World Nutella Day
Travel & Places - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 04:22:27
One of the funniest things I witnessed was a biker dude who took a whole loaf of Italian bread, slice it in half lengthwise and slather a whole jar of Nutella on it, and he ate the whole thing. I love Nutella, it's like peanut butter on steroids with a chocolate twist. Chances are if your Italian...
20. Vintage Halloween Postcards
Holidays & Celebrations - Tue, 16 Sep 2014 16:12:36
Way back in the 80's (the 1980's) when the economy was better (for me) I use to ride up to the Catskills with friends and buy Vintage Halloween Postcards; at the time you could find them from $5 to $20 a piece. eBay use to be a great source for buying although I have mainly sold on the auction si...

Culture & Society - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 04:21:17

27. Hand Dipped Taper and Soy Candles
Culture & Society - Tue, 16 Sep 2014 16:03:46
I bought a dipping vat to make candles because I didn't have the money to support my candle habit. My father bought me a bunch of wax many years ago (he has since passed).

I still have some of the wax he bought me and refer to it as "The Gift That Keep...
28. Christmas For Sale
Hobbies, Games & Toys - Tue, 16 Sep 2014 16:03:46
Christmas was never the same after my mother passed away, she was my only family member left and my primary reason I celebrated the holiday; I always said that after she passed I'd be done with it.

Holidays & Celebrations - Tue, 16 Sep 2014 16:10:33
Did you know April 12 is National Grilled Cheese Day and April is National Grilled Cheese Month? Who knew? Grilled Cheese is perhaps one of the top 5 comfort foods in America. Who hasn't come in from the cold to a bowl of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich, truly heaven here on Earth.

Holidays & Celebrations - Tue, 16 Sep 2014 16:12:36
Who doesn't like the escapism of going to a movie and immersing yourself in the fantasy world of the Silver Screen every once in a while. Even during The Great Depression the movie biz was going strong; and back then you also were treated to a Big Band, News Reels and perhaps a little Vaudeville,...
31. Holga and Lomo Photography
Entertainment & Media - Tue, 16 Sep 2014 16:12:37
The Holga (you know, that quirky camera with the cult following) was created in Hong Kong back in 1982 - it's no newbie to the world of photography. I was made aware of the Holga's existence thru Flickr Groups and soon after bought one on eBay (along with a Ring Flash).

Fiber Arts is an umbrella term for many types of arts and crafts, from paper-making to printing; Surface Design is getting imagery on (mainly) fabric, certainly not limited to.

Anyone can make candles, it's a fun and easy hobby to get started with; and there's nothing like the glow of a homemade beeswax candle that emits a sweet honey scent in the air.
