Turning a Tiny Apartment in NYC into a Palace [VIDEO]

The guy in this video definitely knows how to save and utilize space. He customized his 500 sq. ft. apartment in East Village in New York City and turned it into a castle. He has great ideas and I like how he recycled an old cooking pot and turned it into the bathroom sink. I also really like all the hidden-storage aspects of the apartment, especially in the kitchen. I was very impressed. Could you live in an apartment this small?

Today is Sunglasses Day [VIDEO]

Here is a wonderful day, in my opinion. We are paying tribute to something that many of us take for granted. When the sun comes out and everything is too bright to see clearly, you reach for your trusty sunglasses. The interesting thing about sunglasses is that they are not only functional, they have become a fashion trend. It seems, these days, the bigger the sunglasses the more fashionable. Personally, I wear a John Lennon-style pair of sunglasses. Yes, if there's one thing I love it's round glasses. But, let's not get off topic. In honor of National Sunglasses Day, I have found some interesting facts about sunglasses. So, today, as you celebrate Sunglasses Day, you can keep these interesting facts about sunglasses in the back of your mind.

Bear Cub Gets Stuck in Garage, Gets Out Safely [VIDEO]

The first thing that popped into my head while watching this was what Yogi Bear used to always say: "I'm smarter than the average bear!" Although the bear cub got stuck in the garage, the cub and the mother both have really smart ideas. First, the mother bear, I assume it's the mother, opens the garage door. Not only does that show a bear's strength, it shows just how smart they are, too. So, now, the garage door is open. All that's left is for the baby bear to get down from the ceiling. After a little maneuvering, the cub sees an opportunity to use a ladder, slides down the ladder and walks out of the garage. Genius, bears. Genius!

Last year at this time, I visited the Oneida County Public Market for the first time. Since it has expanded, I have not visited. Saturday was a nice day and I needed produce, so I decided to visit the public market once again. And, I'm glad I did. It has everything for every taste. There's, of course, fruits and vegetable and there's jewelry, bread, honey, cheese, meat, crafts and even fresh-squeezed lemonade. The Oneida County Public Market is open Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Utica's Union Station. Today, I would like to share with you my photos from my trip to the public market.
