New Yorkers Have the Hardest Time Spelling What Word?

I'm no stranger to confirming the spellings of words via Google. I'll also go there and check which version of the word is the correct one to use, as well, because once you start writing blogs you find out just how many folks are grammar police (even when they, too are wrong.)

It turns out, I'm not alone in my usage of "the Google," as my Nana may say. People all around the United States are using it for that very reason right now. In the moment it has taken me to write this sentence, if I had to guess, thousands of people have Googled how to spell words like "college" and "receipt." Think I'm kidding? Think those words are just too easy to need to search? Think again.

Stay at the Ninja Turtles Pad for Just $10/Night in NYC on Airbnb

It's like a serious nostalgia overload to take a peak into the lair belonging to The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

Okay, yes, sure I know, "Marissa, the Ninja Turtles are not real. They're cartoons." I get it. But, this home has had the inside redone to fit what our 80's kid brains remember so fondly! And to top it off, it's only $10/night to rent it! If you've ever rented a room in New York City, you should be well aware of the savings here, though you'll have to wait a bit to be able to rent the Turtles lair for the obvious of reasons it's sold out currently on Airbnb.

This Albany NY Tricentennial Song Video is PRICELESS [WATCH]

Oh, how the times have changed.

While 1986 doesn't seem all that long ago for a lot of us, this video proves just how long ago it really was. From the hair styles, the fashion and the song itself nothing more 80's has ever taken place in Albany!

My Open Letter To Miranda Worked…Sorta

Back in October I begged and pleaded in an open letter to the one and only Miranda Lambert.

It might sound silly, but I am a big fan and I really wanted to see her again. Not just see her again, but see the new music live and in person. I mean, right after she was at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center last June (on my birthday, eee!) she released, "Vice." She had sort of teased new music but also, not really and then bam! There is was. And we didn't get to hear it live like a lot of the tour did.

Human Skull Found in Coxsackie Woods

Imagine you're hiking through the woods and you see something unusual. You think you know what it is but, no, it can't be that, right? A skull? Okay, maybe it is a skull but it's most certainly not human, it has to be an animal. It just has to be.

What To Do and Where To Go This Memorial Day Weekend

This weekend is the unofficial kick off to summer and I know we are all looking forward to it! How can we not be?! Lets just think back to a couple of months ago when we could barely get down the Northway because of piles of snow; or how about the last couple of months of ridiculous rain (last Thursday, anybody?!)
