Winter Weather Advisory

Last night the people who predict (or control!) the weather issued a "Winter Weather Advisory." Immediately, I realized that I was in the wrong line of work. It's January in Indiana. I think a "Winter Weather Advisory" would be a blanket statement for the entire season, but someone in this office makes a living by predicting "Winter Weather" in, of all times, winter. Now, if that same guy wants to issue the same advisory in June, I'll be listening.

The "Garment District" of New York City

I recently returned from a brief business trip in New York City. My "bidness" was in Manhattan, so I found an inexpensive (this is a relative term for New York City) place to stay in "The Garment District." Apparently, this is the center of New York's fashion industry. Now that I've been there, I'm really surprised that the fashions emanating are made from anything other than plastic garbage bags and cardboard--the two most abundant materials in the garment district.

In all seriousness, if you're looking for a good place to stay in Manhattan, I'd recommend the Wingate Inn in Midtown Manhattan. The surroundings may be a bit interesting, but it's affordable and close to the more popular spots in the city.
