I saw this little guy on my roof on Sunday. It's the only time I ever saw a kestrel on my building. I did see one once on the First Presbyterian Church's steeple (below link).

Found online: North America’s littlest falcon, the American Kestrel packs a predator’s fierce intensity into its small body. It's one of the most colorful of all raptors.

Great memories of Friday and Saturday nights (uptown) hanging around by the theatres and the library. Anyone remember the name of the pizza place next to the Oritani?

Vintage photos of N.J. movie theaters

Caption for first picture below:
The Oritani Theatre in Hackensack is shown in a photo from the late 1920s. It opened in 1926, directly across the street from the Fox Theatre. Named for a local Native American chief, it closed in 1983 after first having been divided into a multiplex cinema. Courtesy of Vintage Bergen County

"The market may be fearing that this is a first step in a growing partnership between Amazon and Sears as the e-commerce giant could potentially use Sears cavernous stores as staging areas for fast delivery, for example."
I just launched - a photoblog I've been working on for the last year-and-a-half to compile, but was actually almost 60 years in the making.

The title pretty much says it all and the main page explains the rest. I could just as well have called it "The Kitchen Sink".

I've posted a couple of the shots on this site before. Some others weren't allowed, but (don't tell the boss)..........I allow them.

If you can make it through this blogstrosity, great, but it's a lot to ask because I've created it as sort of a book (it's sequential, going back as far as 1957).

The blog's comments sections are open (he says, hesitantly).
This was from Monday night, July 10.

It lasted about a minute - just long enough to do a 3-photo stitch.

A full rainbow from McDonald's to the Sears shoe department (is that where they get what they put in hamburger buns?).
