On the flight coming in to NYC last night I was able to do some work online, with the airplane’s wifi.
In this moment I was tracking the flight on a non-liturgical iPad.
I was given when they came out and I am as yet undecided about what I want to use it for. This iPad does not have 3G, so it is less helpful on the road. But I have put a few books on it. Also, I have figured out how to transfer files to it across my network. I can also use it when connected to wifi to watch my SlingBox (which is one of the greatest inventions ever).
As we were landing the fireworks for the 4th of July were starting up around New York. Alas, none of my photos turned out from the plane.
By the time I get from the airport to the west side where I generally stay, the show was still going.
Here is a bad shot down the street in front of the rectory.
I went with a friend who picked me up to a favorite place on 9th and 24th for a quick bite of Chinese dumplings.
Better than the ramen I ate at home before my flight.
And a special treat was seeing one of these on the way home!
Back in NYC, where it is hot hot hot today. Right now…. 99F (37C). It is not too humid.
I am in today, stuck at a desk working on an article, but later tonight I will sally forth.
