* Accidental Photo while Riding the Rails. The photo at right shows an accidental photo taken in the subway a few years back. Recently Rudy Giuliani was reported to have accidentally 'butt dialed' someone on his cell phone, while talking about money with one of his associates. Giuliani may have gone from prosecuting crime to possibly participating in crime internationally. The Mayor's job pays a couple hundred thousand per year, while Giuliani has been raking in millions in recent years. Who says crime doesn't pay?

The photo at right shows a view from the subway looking west toward LIC / Manhattan with the sleek Empire State Building almost blotted out by yet another boxy glass and steel skyscraper in Long Island City. A century from now it's not likely any of the building owners will be complaining that their buildings are being landmarked ... if they even last that long.

Sunday - Daylight Savings Time, Veterans Day Parade, 49th NYC Marathon, City of Science Festival

queens things to doThe photo at right shows folks marching in the Veterans Day Parade in NYC a few years back. There's a Queens Veterans Day Parade on Sunday in Middle Village - see details below.

There's a Veterans' Day Parade beginning at 80th & Metropolitan Avenue marching down to Christ the King Church in Middle Village where there will be a commemorative ceremony ending at 3 pm.

Daylight Savings Time. It's that time of year where we 'fall back' by moving our clocks back one hour starting at 2 am Sunday or on Saturday night.

The 49th Annual NYC Marathon runners begin congregating at Fort Wadsworth on Staten Island beginning at 7 am. The wheelchairs take off at 8.30 am, the women at 9.10 am and the men at 9.40 am - scroll down to story below for further details. The Queens segment of the track is at the midpoint of the 'track'. So I did some of the math. Since the fastest men complete the race in a bit more than two hours, while the average is 4.40 [hours.minutes], that means the first runners will be coming through Queens around 10 am at the Queensboro Bridge, and the biggest wave of runners coming in around 11 am. The weather is forecast to be pleasant. Enjoy.

There's a City of Science Festival from 10 am to 4 pm at York College Health & Phy Ed Complex at 160-02 Liberty in Jamaica. It explores space exploration, robotics, the human brain and mooorree. It's free, but you might want to rsvp a spot - click to this event in the Member Calendar.
