I loved visiting the city, I would hate to live there but to see some of the sites was a very nice experience for me. Hope you all are having a good week.

The Seaport's heyday, 1820 to 1860. by the late-1950's, the old Ward Line docks (Pier 15, 16, and part of 17) were mostly vacant.
South Street Seaport Museum sits in a 12 square-block historic district that is the site of the original port of New York City.
I didn't take pictures of the historic area because of hurricane Sandy, a lot of the shops and buildings were vacant and not open, pretty sad to see all the buildings boarded up!

The third and current Trinity Church was finished in 1846 and at the time of its completion its 281-foot spire and cross was the highest point in NY until being surpassed in 1890 by the NY World Building.
On July 9, 1976 Queen Elizabeth 11, visited Trinity Church. Vestrymen presented her with a symbolic "back rent" of 279 peppercorns. Thereby, in 1697, King William111 gave Trinity Church a charter that called for the parish to pay an annual rent of one peppercorn to the crown. during the September 11, 2001 attacks, as the 1st tower collapsed, people took refuge from the massive debris cloud in side the Church. Falling wreckage from the collapsing tower knocked over a giant sycamore tree that had stood for nearly a century in the churchyard of St. Paul's Chapel, which is part of Trinity Church's parish and is located several blocks north of Trinity Church. Sculptor Steve Tobin used its roots as the base for a bronze sculpture that stands next to the church today. Trinity Churchyard, at Wall Street and Broadway, in which Alexander Hamilton, William Bradford, Franklin Wharton, Robert Fulton, Captain James Lawrence and Albert Gallatin are buried.
The picture that shows the doors going into the church, has a spot on the ground where it shows that Queen Elizabeth stood.

The nephew came by today and brought his fancy sports car and gave me a ride in it. I told him after he has had it a while longer that I would love to take it for a drive myself! I have to say though that I am still a truck kind of girl, give me a truck to drive and I will be happy. I like my car but the day we get to go get a different and newer truck will be my day!
Hope you all are having a good weekend.

The hubby had to stay an extra day down in the city to go to a day of physicals and safety stuff. He just loves not coming home and spending a day doing things for work that he does not get paid for. He hates wasting his day when he can come home and do work around the farm. Being as he is only home for two days a week as it is. I thought I would do the complaining for him.
Supposedly us women are good at complaining. So, I thought I would give it my best shot :~)
Hope you all have a wonderful day.

It has been raining the last couple of days, and boy, what a mess! We even had thunder and lightening. The pastures and the fields are becoming muddy swamps. It will be awhile before we will be taking the tractors out in the fields.
School is winding down, only a month to go and will be done until next semester. I am taking investments, computerized accounting, macroeconomics, aerobic dance, Intro to biology molecular cells. It will be a heck of a semester, but thank god I graduate in December.
Hope you all had a great day. I even went to get my tires changed from snow to regular.

We now have another calf for beef and I will post pictures hopefully tomorrow. All I have to do is remember to take the camera out when I do chores. Hope everyone is doing good this year so far.
Take care and have a good night.

Off to school this afternoon, I will be in class until 8:25 tonight. I go to sign up for my last semester of classes today first. The science class I wanted to take is all filled, I wanted to take it online and they have all the seats filled. Now I have to go to the college to take it and that means another semester of a full week of classes with no days off. Monday, Wednesday and Friday until 2 and Tuesday in class until 5 and Thursday in class for just one hour from 8 to 9. Yuck, I am sorta of rethinking about going further, I am beginning to think that working is better than going to school!
Hope you all have a great day.
