The thought of driving an electric car always seemed a little intimidating to me. Is there a learning curve? What happens when you are in the middle of the highway and the battery runs out? When it comes to the technology of electric cars I am a bit of an auto-techno peasant but I [ ... ]
Christians travel for reasons that are almost as varied as the denominations that exist. Here are a few reasons I love, and need, to travel, along with some ideas for where to go:

Everybody knows about the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, the yearly tradition that enables us to kill time before we tuck into our golden turkey and mountains of sweet potatoes. But few people know that there is a far superior activity that takes place the night before: the blowing up of the Thanksgiving Parade balloons.
The streets around the National History Museum (77th to 81st Streets between Central Park West and Columbus) are closed to cars beginning Wednesday morning and the massive balloons are laid flat on Central Park West. Although those behemoths laid flat is a sight to see, most of the action begins in the afternoon, when the balloons are slowly inflated one by one, taking shape before pedestrians' eyes. Although the streets are closed to traffic, pedestrians are free to walk around and gawk.
It is literally, the best show in town.
