Sunday, January 31, 2021:  This page will be the last one created using SiteBuilder.  Below is the information
I received from Yahoo.  I was given two other tools I can use but it would mean copying all the photos to the new
tools, Website Builder and WordPress hosting.  I contacted Yahoo and was told that as long as I pay my yearly fee,
the website will stay online.  Let's see for how long this will happen.  I suppose I can created a new site to add my
photos after March 31st.   I have not made a decision yet.

Monday, January 25, 2021 - Soon Yahoo SiteBuilder will no longer be supported. Get a new and better website today
at no additional cost.

Starting on March 31st, 2021, we will discontinue support for the Yahoo SiteBuilder editor to increase focus on our
newer website creation tools. Here’s what you need to know about your current site:

Your website will stay online for now.

After March 31 2021, you will no longer be able to edit or update your website built using Yahoo SiteBuilder.

If you wish to make changes and updates in the future you must create a new website.

Photos taken in January 2021 - The photos with no date on the lower right corner were taken with my Galaxy S20 5G
phone (January 15th, 20th, 25th, and 26th).  The ones with a date were taken with the Lumix camera (January 28th).

My indoor avocado plant.  
It took a while to get the pit
to sprout roots.  What did
the trick?  I placed the cup
with the pit in water on the
radiator.  Looks like the
heat and sunlight helped!
Will I ever get avocados?

February 22nd - Snow.  Then it turned to rain.  And later the sun came out.  We even got a rainbow!

Snow came down hard but it was wet so it did not stick
on surfaces.  Later, it began to rain.

March 11, 2021 - These may be the last photos posted here since the site will no longer be supported by Yahoo
after March 31st.  I will not be able to post new photos or make any changes to what is already posted.

The following photos were taken March 8th (NY State Pavilion being repaired in Flushing Meadows Corona Park)
and 10th (The Edge, Hudson Yards).  For more information, Google one or the other, or both.
View from overpass that connects the park to
the other side of Horace Harding over the L.I.E.
From my terrace later in the day.

A gigantic bronze gorilla statue (the largest in the world, in fact!) has popped up in Hudson Yards, and his name is
King Nyani (Swahili for “gorilla”). The statue comes from world-renowned public artists Gillie and Marc Schattner,
who have dedicated their lives to saving endangered species through their works.  Jan 23, 2021

The Shed, commissions original works of art, across all
disciplines, for all audiences. The Shed brings together
established and emerging artists in fields ranging from
hip hop to classical music, painting to digital media,
theater to literature, and sculpture to dance in an
unprecedented movable structure that adapts to support
all kinds of inventive work under one roof.

The Shed is located where the High Line meets Hudson Yards,
adjacent to 15 Hudson Yards and bordering the Public Square
and Gardens.

The Vessel is temporarily closed.

Lots of construction taking place in the area.
Look closely and you will see trains parked and part of
the High Line.  West side of Manhattan.
This, and the following photos,
were taken from the corner of
10th Avenue and 33rd Street
Some visitors refused to walk on the glass portion.  
One can see the street/buildings below.

My next project?  Visit the "new" observatory deck
on the ESB.

At 1,250 feet in the air, the Empire State Building's
observatory on the 102nd floor may just be
“the best place for a New Yorker.”
One can see the buildings/street below.
But does anyone know
what happens is bolts
come apart?

Some photos taken from the
101st floor.

Were these photos taken of me on the Edge?  No.  They were taken before I got on the elevator to the 100th floor.  
The background, if I recall correctly, was a solid gray.  But it could have been a different color since I didn't pay
much attention.  My image was superimposed on the backgrounds.  I have experienced similar photography on
cruise ships.  Here is what's funny.  I visited the Edge close to 3 p.m.  The sun was shining brightly and there was
somewhat of a haze.  Photo on the left shows me in the more correct lighting.  Now look at the photo on the right.  
The Empire State Building, and the City, is lit up.  How?  Why?  I was not asked if I wanted to take off the mask but
now I understand why.  Masks had to be worn on the Edge so I couldn't be seen on the Edge without a mask once
the backgrounds are added.

No, I was not in a garden next to the Vessel.  Look at the photo on the right.  It now looks like the World Trade Center
is to my right.  In the photo above TWP is to my left.
