Television Mania


We've had lots of movie mania, but no television mania to share. I was delighted to find this poster on poles in the neighborhood over the weekend. I was even more delighted to realize I might be able to see part of the filming.


This morning "Law and Order" filmed three blocks from my house -- and only a block out of my way to the subway -- on the steps of the Methodist Church.

These two pictures are the side street on the side of the church. It shows all the equipment needed to film the television show. I especially liked the signs giving directions inside the church. I didn't see anyone famous, though I was tempted to wait to see if any of my "Law and Order" favorites were part of the filming. Alas, work called.

Weekend Update...Still no word from Martha or Rachael. I'm a little disappointed, but can't blame Rachael, I've been spelling her name incorrectly. I haven't given up, but have stopped obsessively checking my email for tickets, which is healthy.

I have gained a pound. However, I am totally back on track and am optimistic that this errant pound will be history by the weekend. I had my first apples of the season -- outstanding! -- and am substituting an apple in the evening for any less nutritious snack. It's worked for two days. Just need to keep it up for the entire fall.

Hope you are enjoying all the treats that this wonderful season offers.

Buttercup, I've gained 10! So take heart and send more ice cream! hehehehe

Sounds like you had quite an exciting time even if you didn't see any stars.

Yeah, but you haven't misspelled Martha I know. So what's her excuse??? :)

The crunch, the snap, the flavor of a new apple is a memory in the making.
Enjoy each and every one of them.

Phooey on those tv broads!

OOH I love Law and Order! Now when ever a show involves a church I will wonder if that is "your" church!

I don't watch that show, so I probably would not recognize anyone if I were to run up on them.

I love "gala" apples...but the trouble is...I love them salted with a dab of peanut butter in the bowl to dip the slices in...I've switched to the natural peanut butter though. My all time favorite way to eat an apple is with caramel...as Rachael says "YUMMO"!!

I've stalled out at a 7 lb weight loss...boy am I grumpy! So much more to go!! :(

It is so exciting seeing New York from your eyes and all the cool stuff (filming) that goes on there.

Do you go to bed at night excited just being there?

How exciting...I watch L&O here, it's one of my favourites.
Just keep eating apples...they're good for lots of things...great fibre as long as you eat them with skin on!
Hugs,
