Brooklyn Flea

This morning with coffee in hand we headed over to the Brooklyn Flea which takes place on Sundays in the old Williamsburg Bank Building.

Here you can find everything from vintage postcards, old toy microscope kits, lobster rolls ...

We're not in Kansas anymore.

This is the view from out our back door here at Scaredy Kat. The tornado-like storm that came through on Thursday brought a giant tree from 3 doors down crashing into our yard. We count ourselves lucky since it fell at the perfect angle and if had veered in any direction it would have done much more damage.
Click on the photo montage above for a closer view of the wreckage.

BIKE SNOB is back!

Back in time for autumnal cycling through the leaves is the BIKE SNOB. Written by the author of the blog it is a hilarious (and useful) look at the ins and outs of the cycling world.

A Public Service Reminder

Earlier this summer we went to a county fair in NJ and came upon an old friend. An icon from our childhood and a reminder of the danger of fire and especially forest fires. All hail Smokey The Bear.
