(You will be able to see all my cartoon adventures by going to the STRIP.

True Tales for this Week....

****But, first late breaking news....

Man Steals $1,445 in Hair Dryers, Curling Irons From Duane Reade store.  The thief shoplifted a host of hair tools and products from the Duane Reade at 100 Broadway.  HE WAS A BALD MAN. 

****THANKSGIVING IS OVER...for a 100% Gluten and Lactose free CHRISTMAS meal use the Thanksgiving suggestions. There are 20 recipes posted in Mrs. Gabby's kitchen for the Holidays. All the recipes can be made with or without Gluten and with or without Lactose. Mrs. Gabby (she who must be obeyed) set up these recipes with an introduction and all in a group so it will be easy for you to find and use them rather than having to search throughout the blog. BLOG LINK

****New York’ holiday windows are the most high-tech ever, the sheer act of standing together on a sidewalk, gawking and kibitzing, adds a human dimension.  AND THE LOOKING IS FREE. 

****Adam Tang skipped his sentencing, where he was given a year in jail.  A 24-minute ride around Manhattan Island earned this Canadian schmuckl a year behind bars.  Tang was sentenced in absentia for reckless endangerment and reckless driving for his dangerous drive around Manhattan stunt.  THE CIA WILL TRACK HIM DOWN IN CANADA AND WATERBOARD HIM.

****The chokehold death of Eric Garner in NYPD custody wasn’t “a black-and-white thing,” his widow said Sunday — a stunning admission that breaks sharply from lawmakers and protesters who have seized on the racial aspect of the case.  Esaw Snipes said she believed her husband was “murdered unjustly,” but said skin color wasn’t a factor behind his fatal arrest for allegedly selling loose cigarettes on Staten Island last summer.  VERY LITTLE COVERAGE OF THIS BY THE MEDIA.

****Councilman Donovan Richards wants the city to turn out the lights.  In legislation that will be introduced today, Richards will seek to limit the number of lights kept on in commercial buildings at night.  HE IS A DOPE.  THIS CITY IS ALL ABOUT LIGHTS.

****Cops are warning Mayor de Blasio and Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito to stay away from their funerals should they be killed in the line of duty.  The Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association distributed a flier to members, blaring: “DON’T LET THEM INSULT YOUR SACRIFICE!” Cops were encouraged to sign and submit the “Don’t Insult My Sacrifice” waiver to ban the cop-bashing pols from their funerals.  THE MAYOR HAS A BLACK WIFE AND THE COUNCIL SPEAKER IS A LATINO.

****While Citi Bike has become part of our urban landscape, auditors found that the bike-sharing program’s spotty maintenance, poorly cleaned bikes and substandard docking stations inconvenienced riders and discouraged growth in the system.  IS THERE EVEN ONE PART OF THE CITI BANK THAT IS HONEST?

 ****Meow Parlour, New York City’s first permanent cat café, will has opened its doors. Cat lovers will be able to make reservations online and spend up to five hours ($4 per 30 minutes) hanging out at a storefront space on Manhattan’s Lower East Side while playing with cats provided by Kitty Kind, a local rescue and adoption group. Seven felines are there to start — with names like Lucky Lemon and Squinkles — but co-founders Emilie Legrand and Christina Ha hope to eventually feature about a dozen cats.  DO THE CATS GET ANY OF THE MONEY?

****Tens of thousands of protesters streamed out of New York City's Washington Square Park to protest the killings of unarmed black people by police officers, as part of the "Millions March NYC." The crowd began to wind its way through Manhattan.  THE COPS BROUGHT THIS ON THEMSELVES BECAUSE MANY OF THEM ARE JUST PLAIN RUDE AND NASTY TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.

**** All the waiters and bartenders abruptly abandoned their posts at Spark’s restaurant, leaving those with 7 p.m. reservations high and dry.  It was completely packed and the bar was elbow to elbow. Contract disputes are at the root of the problem.  THIS IS A RISKY CAPER SINCE THIS IS A MAFIA HANGOUT.

****The Duchess of Cambridge was caught showing a little sass when a bossy employee at the Harlem Northside Center for Child Development caught her relaxing at a charity event.   “Keep wrapping!” the woman snapped as Middleton prepped Christmas presents.  THE ROYAL COUPLE WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY TO ONLY GO TO VISIT POOR BLACK NEIGHBORHOODS FOR PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES.

****A kid from Queens has made tens of millions of dollars — by trading stocks on his lunch breaks at Stuyvesant High School.  Mohammed Islam is only 17 and still months away from graduating — but worth a rumored $72 million. “The high eight figures,” is as specific as the shy and modest teen would get when asked his net worth.  I WENT TO THIS HIGH SCHOOL AND IN MY DAY YOU WERE LUCKY TO HAVE MONEY FOR LUNCH

****The Korean Air executive who delayed a flight in New York City to throw a hissy fit because her macadamia nuts came in a bag instead of a bowl has apologized.  Cho Hyun-ah has since resigned as the firm’s head of cabin service.  OBVIOULSY ALL THE KOREAN WACKOS ARE NOT IN NORTH KOREA ONLY.  THE SOUTH HAS THEM TOO.

****Joke du Jour: You can hear all my jokes at the joke du jour link higher up on this web page

Travel Warnings: 

****Bus companies that operate New York City's hop-on, hop-off sightseeing tours have agreed to settle a group of class action lawsuits brought by tourists, court papers show. The anti-trust lawsuits against Coach USA, City Sights and related entities accuse the companies of forming a joint venture to illegally monopolize the sightseeing bus industry and conspiring to fix prices above the market rate. The companies have also been known to tout certain attractions and obtain kickbacks from vendors.

****92 percent of Airbnb and other B&B listings in New York are illegal, according to a state report, and together with city regulators, the office of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is actively cracking down on the room-rental service. It is against the law to rent an apartment to someone for less than thirty days and "guests" are subject to abrupt eviction. A LISTING ON THE INTERNET IS POSSIBLY A SCAM.

****Uber taxi service accused of smearing the reputations of people who have come out against this operation.  Also, they are selling marketing information to outsiders to tell them where you are going to and where you have been.  ONE OF THEIR DRIVERS TOLD A LADY SHE DESERVED TO HAVE CANCER AFTER SHE CHANGED HER MIND ABOUT A PICKUP AT THE SLOANE CANCER HOSPITAL.

****Do not trust Trip Advisor.  I have returned the certificate of excellence they awarded me because many of their NYC ratings are in error and I do not wish to be associated with swindles.

****TV THEME (can you guess what show this music came from?) ..AUDIO

****I did a music video....well, i drove the taxi in the video.  MUSIC

****THE SNEAKY CAMERA (the hidden camera)..a growing collection of new yorkers are unaware that they are being watched by a certain taxi driver. new ones are added from time to time. take a peep at SNEAKY

**here is an interview i did with a tourist and it was presented on radio 702 in south africa. from time to time, i do this and the tourist gets to be famous. the radio stations love this feature for their listeners. AUDIO

**to hear broadcast spots about some of the places where folks are taken to, listen to these commercials that were created for a "visit new york city promotion" at SPOTS

****please note that i encourage folks planning on coming to nyc to write to me for some advice.  beware the online trip advising sites that are written mainly by public relations people to promote their clients' services.  many of the restaurants that they tout have numerous health violations and you can always ask me about that.  i do not "rate" things but i sure can tell you if you choices (including hotels and attractions) are wise ones.
