718 Transient will now live over at, a collaborative effort of a few cell phone and PDA addicts, and the information they recieve via text message, photo, and email, over their devices.

718 Transient is currently on pause while I take in the sites worldwide. Come back in a few weeks for photos from the lovely West Coast, East Coast, some Europe, and a lil touch of the Dirty South.

Till then...

More Hershey

A cheaper option than other big-name theme parks, Hershey offers a wide array of rides for little ones, as well as chocolate-making expos and a how-to dark ride, complete with singing animatronics and free samples. Stop by on Opening Day and start off your sunshine season with thrills and chills. Younger children will love classic rides like bizzy bees, the frog hopper and helicopters, while older kids will enjoy the carousel, Canyon River Rapids and 11 roller coasters. New as of 2007, a sprawling water area is guaranteed relief on a hot afternoon. While many of the edgier slides have height requirements, an old-fashioned boardwalk-style water pool with squirt guns, fountains, smaller slides and a bucket drop is open to all.

Wide Open Spaces II

In lieu of my Memorial Day road trip through Pennsylvania, I was excited to see Expedia introduce a new section on road trips. Though the price of gas is ridiculously astronomical this year, I think the rising airline prices combined with the recent bad press is keeping people away from flying. At the same time, families and family trips are up, and suddenly anywhere in your backyard can be a destination.

I certainly agree with their Vegas choice, as I'm a huge fan of renting a convertible and driving around the desert, but Orlando? Really? I can count on one hand the times I've had a car in Orlando, and though it was a convenience, I didn't exactly take to the open road.

Richmond County Proper

Instead of bashing the sometimes annoying people I live near, or whining about strict HOA rules, I thought I'd do something different. Below you will find a few reasons why I chose to move to Staten Island, other than it's cheap real estate and proximity to NYC.

And here is the only thing that got me up some mornings, the view from the front of my apartment on Bay Street.

To Soothe the Blogging Beast

I haven't been able to update lately for lack of Internet, time being home, and other factors. So, just for an update, enjoy these gardening and new garden tips.
