Just about everyday I walk the beach. But not today...
Feels like -8 degrees here in Atlantic City, NJ
Couldn't make it past where I live.

You now see what I see from home...

These cold temps are the main reason why 80% of my neighbors go to Florida during the winter months.

Looking onto the boardwalk only a few people out.

Thinking in for the rest of the day.

Be well...

With the temps being in the single digits. I'm finding myself searching the web on places I've lived and past companies I worked for.

My first kinda real job was in the summer of '76 before starting college

I worked part time for the Knickerbocker Toy Company in central NJ.

They were the creators of Raggedy Ann & Andy dolls.
Had many of them and gave them all away when I moved into NYC in '79.

Thinking I wish I still had them.

The things we toss out over the years.
I'm sure we all have items we've tossed and wish we still had.
Care to share???

Oh my - Looking at the weather on my phone. Feels like -8 degrees.

Have a great day,

~Holly

Did You Live in Manhattan '79 to '84? ***RAMONES***

Just thinking back to when I lived in NYC. the years were '79 to '84.

Lived in the upper west side at 2350 Broadway (Bretton Hall)
Worked at a Recording Studio on West 57th between 8th & 9th Ave.

In '79, I somehow became so into the New Wave and Punk scene.
My favorite band at the time was the Ramones - seeing them often in the Village.

I had such a thing for Johnny Ramone

My two favorite clothing boutiques were:
Trash & Vaudeville and Fiorucci

In '84 I moved to Northern VA, just outside of DC
Changed my image - Left Music Recording
Became involved in Video Production
Went after the Federal Gov't. and Corporate America.

With the outside temp being around 20 degrees
and dropping to the single digits. I'm finding myself
searching the net thinking about days-gone-by...

Hello to everyone who reads this...

Most days I try and blog.

I keep the blogs short with many photos.

Just about every morning I walk the beach where I live.

My home is right off the Atlantic City Boardwalk.

I'm always looking for more viewers who enjoy my photos.
I love taking pictures of the beach and Atlantic Ocean.
Every now & than I'll take photos of various casinos along the boardwalk strip.

A few years back I really became hooked into photography.
Most of my photos are taken with a Nikon D5500.

My best to everyone...

The NJ Gov Declares State of Emergency Beginning 12:00PM Saturday 1/19/19.

So at noon today through Monday evening, Maybe Tuesday we are in for some funky weather.

Wind and Rain should be starting shortly.

Sunday during the day around 50 degrees, Early evening around 8 degrees.

Monday's high maybe hit 20 with extremely high winds.

Not real fun when your home backs up to the Atlantic Ocean.

Just came in from the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Not many people out and about .
Winds are sure picking up.

I have no idea what we're in for.
At least no snow (I think) for the next few days.

Edited and added - Thought I'd do a Sam's Club run. Thinking I'll be in for awhile due to the weather.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Okay most morning I go out and walk the beach. Not the past few mornings, and with the cold weather the way it is I won't for another few days.

Yesterday afternoon I was walking the center of town (city).

I can't believe Resorts casino is now open for 40 . Opened in 1978.

Also saw this up in a tree. Is that a hawk?
not sure.

I'll post more beach photos starting next Wednesday. It's just way to cold now.

Thinking of everyone...

Times have changed - Playing in Snow
This is so not me. But I'm having a good time.

Hope you are too...

Just a quick question for others that blog?

Over the I used to be able to attach my blog post to a forum.

I was off Citymixx and came back on to blog again about 2 months ago.

In the forum section for blogs to be attached, I no longer see the list.

Am I the only one?

Thinking I'd ask here first before contacting Citymixx

Much appreciate a response.

Creating Real Friendships...
Posted:Jan 14, 2019 5:23 am

Okay - Here's my story...

I'm on Citymixx a more-or-less a sexual networking site.

I have zero intentions on meeting anyone and everyone for sexual reasons.

Since I'm transgender, I picked this site - it's easier for me to tell all.about myself.

My profile is 100% right on target - and would be a wonderful thing for those that contact me by IM or email would read my profile first.

Most of my blogs are about where I lived and what type of work I've done.

Always felt honesty goes a long way.

So with that said... and still being somewhat the beginning of a new year.
My goal is the following...

Create real friendships with someone in each and every US state.
Create real friendships with those outside of the US

I always felt you can learn something from everyone...

Yes - I'm also "Looking For Love"

But I know here on this site "I'm Looking for love in all the wrong places".
Love that song by Johnny Lee
Ya just never know...

My favorite section on Citymixx is by far the Blog section. In the past I've chatted with some I would call a friend. I'm ISO more.

Cyndi Lauper Before Cyndi Lauper

Before Cyndi Lauper went out on her own, and was known as Cyndi Lauper.

She was just a singer in a band called Blue Angel.

I was lucky enough to see the band 3 times.
The years were 1981 & 1982

Twice in NYC
Privates and Hurrahs

Once in Asbury Park, NJ
The Fast Lane

At that time, I was living in Manhattan at 2350 Broadway between 85th and 86th Street.
Upper westside a place called Bretton Hall. Lived there from late '79 to '84 before moving into the DC / Northern VA area.

I was working at a Recording Studio on West 57th Street.

Those years I was able to hit so many well-known NYC Clubs.

Here we are now in 2019... and It's an evening I'm just thinking about those good ole days. A few minutes ago I was on the net checking out that music video site and came across the show I seen at Private's.

Needless to say - This made my night!

Have a great evening...

Since I'm not fond of the colder weather that Winter brings...
I find it's the perfect time to go though older photos on my laptop and delete.

I just tossed about 100 of them and keeping this one.
Think I'll do this again tomorrow morning.

For those that enjoy the Winter months ...Have fun!

I'm staying in...

Have a great day!
