30/30: picnic in central park

August 16th, 2010

As the summer is coming to a close, I’ve been trying to check off more of my 30/30 items. This weekend I checked off a pretty dreamy one, a picnic in central park.

The city’s been closing down a few avenues to traffic on Sundays in August, which means bikes and pedestrians have free rein of the streets. Riding my bike in traffic is not one of my strong suites, so I jumped at the chance ride over the Brooklyn Bridge and all the way to central park car-free. Once we got to the park we spread out our blanket and snacked on fruit, cheese and bread from the market. As if that’s not cool enough, we decided to take advantage of the lovely day and rowed a boat in the pond. It was like taking a vacation in my own city… I love it!

I’m over half way there… fingers crossed I can accomplish all of my goals before the big day! Look for a market week round up in the next day or two.

    What a lovely idea! I also have a suggestion for #10 on your 30/30 list – go to the Cloisters musuem in Ft. Tryon Park and have a nice lunch at the New Leaf Cafe. Fort Tryon is at 190th street and is a beautiful park overlooking the Hudson River.

    I know! How is it the end of August already? I’ve got a few things on my summer list that need attending to. A picnic–always a good idea…you get a true feel for yours in this photo. Looks great.

    I see some wasted space here. Well, not really ‘wasted’ exactly, but I think it could be better monetized. Direct advertising is better than Adsense because you get to keep all the profits. With a simple PHP script, you can offer advertising space to your visitors. The software makes everything automated and it’s really easy to use. You keep all the profits. If you still want to run your other affiliate ads, you still can. This software works on websites as well as blogs. If you want to use it on your blog, you can just install it like any other WordPress plugin and then set some variables. It is an ad manager that enables you to maximise your revenue, save time, and keep you in complete control of your ad space. Can you imagine setting this up on all your blogs or websites?

    Its appealing attractive that the mainstream media has misrepresented the way it looks at this recently dont you think? What worn to neve be brought awake before discussed has untouched. Frankly it is about schedule we see a change.
