Thanks for the comments!

So far, we haven't gotten an answer on the granite situation. The cabinet guy, who contracts with the granite place, is stepping in. He originally suggested we talk with the granite place directly, so Jeff did that--only to be told that what was installed was what we ordered! Not.

Back to the cabinet guy ... who said he would call the granite place on Monday.

We'll keep you posted.

In other news, we have never seen so many people crowded around a dang tree in all our lives. Took Rachel shopping yesterday at Rockefeller Center. To say it was crammed with people is an understatement. Even though we still feel very much like tourists ourselves, we forget that millions of people come to NYC to see things like the tree at Rockefeller Center.

Rachel's comment was, "Gee, they should come down to the South Street Seaport and see OUR tree. It's actually prettier than this one!"

Which goes to show you that sometimes tourists miss the real NYC because they don't veer off the beaten path.

That's not to say that some of the touristy things in NYC aren't wonderful: they are. The Empire State Building is majorly cool, for example. And Central Park is superb, as are many other places tourists go.

But if you come to NYC, first of all, you'd better visit us. And second of all, let us tell you some of the places that you might not otherwise visit, but that will give you a real feel for this city. We have only been here about 10 months, but already we are starting to get to know the place--probably because we don't have the option of driving everywhere, so we actually SEE places while walking.

Stay tuned for some photos of store windows. We're going to brave the elements today and visit 5th Avenue!
