Thanks to the successful rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine, we can finally start to think about the possibility of traveling during the pandemic. But while the numbers may be down, we still have to  remain cautious and take the basic steps (masking up, washing hands frequently, and keeping socially distant) to ensure our health and safety while on vacation. With that in mind, one item you will want to toss into your carry-on is a travel-size bottle of Disinfect & Shield 24 Hour Face Mask/Fabric Sanitizer.

Unlike traditional disinfectants on the market, Disinfect & Shield is non-toxic and completely safe for use around humans, animals, and plants. Disinfect & Shield has been tested to destroy viruses, bacteria, molds, and fungi, including strains of SARS, H1N1, E. Coli, EBOLA and harmful microbes including COVID-19 on contact.

On Easter Sunday, the place to be was Tompkins Square Park, where friendly and festive  East Village neighbors dressed in their most colorful finery for some kind of Easter Bonnet Festival — which may or may not be a returning annual tradition. There were dozens of great looks, but this lovely Lady in Pink was my favorite for obvious reasons.

In Celebration of 4/20: Ten Rad Art Bongs!

In January of 2015, I was invited to an art show  billed as an exhibit of “Functional Art Glass.” It turned out to be a show of amazing glass bongs, water pipes and other smoking paraphernalia,  hosted by the online headshop  1 Percent. Tommy Chong was even there! While digging around for a pot-related image in my photo archives, because 4/20, I uncovered my stash of pix from that evening, so I am dusting them off here where you can enjoy them  again, or for the first time,  depending on how long you have been reading this blog.

I’m not sure who is trying to make the Fanny Pack come back into style, but I admit that I was at least a wee bit tempted to snatch up this iridescent Pink version of the reviled fashion accessory when I saw it hanging from a display at the local Lot Less closeout store on 14th Street. Only $4.99 – what a bargain!
