The Reason to Visit Exotic Places

Travel

“Where are you going on your next trip?” It is a question commonly put to me, as is, “Why there?”
I go out of curiosity — I want to see for myself the places I have read about. I want to experience the landscapes, the cities and the people. As an intensely visual person, I want to see the beauty of the art and architecture, the gardens which I have studied for so many years.

Delivered Meals, Assembly Required

Food

Love to chop but hate to shop? Don’t know where the grocery store is hiding its yuzu sauce? Does it have yuzu sauce? Tired of takeout? Restaurants OK but pricey? Work late? Blue Apron, one of several meal-kit services, may work for you, as it does for Debra Losada and Avery Danziger of Sharon. They are among the million people, it is said, to whom Blue Apron delivers meals every month.

Collection Offers Furniture & More

On the Trail

State Line Auctions will have the second stage of the collection of the late Edwin Duff Balken for sale at its gallery at 80 Main St. in North Canaan on Sunday, Nov. 13. The first stage was sold to an overflow audience on June 12 and included wonderful early American furniture and accessories. 
This second stage is just as spectacular, with furniture from the 18th century and early 19th century that Balken collected for his homes in Pittsburgh, Pa., while serving as curator for the Carnegie Mellon Museum, and later in his retirement in the Berkshires.

An Adventure, Well Worth the Lengthy Trip

Travel:

When I think of the Poles, I am not pondering the life of the citizens of Poland, but rather the geographic North and South Poles of our planet Earth. I have just returned from a trip to the geographic North Pole at 90.00.000 degrees North. People are greeting me with “Now you have been to both Poles,” but that is far from the truth. I have been to Antarctica twice but never to the South Pole itself.

If you or someone you love is a fan of “Star Trek” — any of the five series or the first 10 movies — there are two different things going on in New York City that you should be aware of. (The second one will cover the three reboot films as well.)
Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience is located, for some reason, on the pier next to the U.S.S. Intrepid, the aircraft carrier-turned-museum that’s permanently docked in the Hudson River at West 46th St.
