Wednesday==>It is a beautiful morning here in The Big Apple, The Greatest City In The World, with blue skies and 55º @ 10:30am. The high is forecast to be in the mid-60s. Nice!!

So ... why don’t we get this posting started for you loyal and faithful readers and followers with Billi Pod’s report card on last night’s Off Broadway musical ...

I'M A STRANGER HERE MYSELF, Mark Nadler’s exploration of the songs and performers of the Weimar Republic era in Germany==>A

This show is extremely well-performed by the multiple award-winner Mark Nadler who is backed by an accordion and a violin plus stunning visual effects. Your favorite blogger found the story line to be educational, entertaining and emotionally involving.

The full-house gave the performers a well-deserved roaring ovation at curtain call. 

Kudos go out to Jim Morgan and his remarkable staff for yet another crowd-pleaser.

As reported yesterday, it is playing at The York Theatre in the Citigroup Center in Midtown East and runs through May 19th.

Billi Pod says==>see this show.

When the show was over I left the theater with a smile on my face and walked back to PHC while listening to the final innings of the YANKEES/HOUSTON game on my new Sony Walkman.

Yes, my loyal and faithful readers and followers, after 10+ years of service the original Walkman died. Luckily I was able to replace it with another Walkman via Amazon.

The Bronx Bombers won the second game of the 3-game series 7-4 behind another good outing from Hiroki Kuroda who pitched innings, giving up only 4 hits and 0 runs.

With the win The Bombers closed out the first month of the season with a record of 16-10, much much better than the vocal nay-sayers had predicted.

Tonight will be the final game of the series with David Phelps (1-1), replacing the injured Ivan Nova, on the mound for The Bronx Bombers vs. Eric Bedard (0-2) for The Astros.

Today’s entertainment event will be a return to the Broadway show, featuring Alec Baldwin ...

2:00==>ORPHANS - “A story about two orphaned brothers holed up in a run-down North Philadelphia row house and the wealthy kidnapped criminal who becomes a surrogate father to them.” (Broadway - complimentary ticket)

Saw this show back on March 26th and gave it an A and I am very much looking forward to seeing it again.

Tom Sturridge, who plays the younger brother, received a Tony nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role.

Currently my plans are to stay in tonight to watch the YANKEES/HOUSTON game @ 7:05pm.

OK, my loyal and faithful readers and followers ... got a few things to do before my matinee ... oh ... I think the walking stats shown below are pretty awesome ... what do you think? ...

Yesterday’s Pedometer mileage==>4.39 miles (or, 9,596 steps)

Total mileage for April==>130.50 miles (average 4.75 miles per day)

Total mileage since 7/1/12==>1,425.48 miles (or, 3,117,525 steps)
