Inspiration Tip -Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC

Inspiration tip -- a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art on 5th Avenue and 86th street in Manhattan -- one of the greatest museums in the world -- can be very inexpensive.  But, you have to be smart about it.  In small print under the admission price -- you will see that the cost is 'suggested.'  You can, as I did this week, walk up and say, 'two adults,' and hand them whatever money you want for admission.  No need for any explanations.  Just say two adults for ten dollars, or five dollars, or any price you want to pay (the suggested price is $25.00 for adults, and in my mind, strictly for tourists!).  Children under 12 are free.  And for children under 12, next to the museum is a wonderful playground -- called the 'Ancient Playground' and set up to look like the Egyptian temples one can see inside the museum -- this is absolutely free to all.  The Temple of Dendur, the mummies, and the Greek galleries were particular favorites of my 6th grader, who is studying ancient civilizations in social studies  (warning you will see full nudity in the Greek galleries -- but, hey, it is a statue:).  Last hint: Do not eat in the museum, especially the cafeteria -- overpriced -- go outside and buy a hot dog and NY pretzel -- tastes better and half the price!   More at www.metmuseum.org.

Cold stone still breaking.

jordan gold medal pack on Wednesday, September 05, 2012 4:39 AM
The most unique feature of the air jordan 4 black cement line though was in the Nike Air technology. This allowed for a design that brought extra air into the sole of the air jordan iv cement, creating a better cushion for the foot of the wearer. All of the air jordan 4 black had this technology, but it became much more visible in the later lines. In these designs a squeezable shoe 'pump' was installed into the tongue of the jordan 4 bred. By pressing the pump a customer could change the firmness of the fit of the air jordan 4 retro 2012, adjusting this for personal preference and maximum comfort.Currently many top of the market jordan 4 grey stores sell the Nike Air Jordan shoe lines at full retail prices, leaving wholesale air jordan retro 4 white for outlet stores, prices ranging from $70 to over $300, averaging out around $100. In order to combat these nike air jordan 4 prices and take a share of the wholesale Nike nike air jordan 4 retro market online websites such as urbanhotlist.com have appeared. They offer discounted prices on these jordan 7 raptors, through wholesale options and bulk orders. This guarantees the authenticity and quality of the shoes, but for a much lower price.Both advantages and disadvantages exist when it comes to purchasing jordan retro 7 bordeaux from an online wholesale site, like urbanhotlist.com. The jordan 7 hare access to a much broader base of merchandise, in this case additional colors and styles of jordan 7 cardinal that might not be available in stores and jordan 7 grey at wholesale pricing, can be kept reasonable, even after shipping and handling.
