At Frankly Wines, we offer our version of the well-stocked wine closet: a well-edited selection of daily essentials, quirky finds, and higher end treasures for when you’re feeling flush.
Our selection skews towards the Southern Hemisphere, but you’ll also find wines from most other major (and minor) regions of the world. And you can be sure every bottle represents great value – when you sell less than 200 wines, they all have to be good!

From the Downtown Express.... Mossey capitalized on a seven-month unemployment stretch to create a blog that last summer catapulted into a successful one-man business. The messenger, born and raised on the Lower East Side and in the delivery business for 25 years, transports groceries and home improvement goods to residents’ doors via cargo bike a converted pedicab that can haul two to three hundred pounds at a time.
Who hasn’t fantasized about being able to fly above the clouds? While human beings have come up with ways to mimic the feeling, here’s an option for those of us who are, frankly, a little too wussy to try out base jumping or hang-gliding right off the bat. Created by Dr. Carsten Mehring, theStreetflyeris ahuman-powered, light-weight carbon-fiber vehicle that allows you to get a running start and then simply put your legs up to get you into a horizontal hang-gliding position using a body-harness. You won’t be more than 3 feet above the ground, but you can imagine how freeing it will feel to “soar” through the streets in the Superman position (though you may not look as cool as you feel). The concept vehicle could also be used for rehabilitation purposes since it allows the user to be in a suspended vertical position while propelling themselves forward with no impact to their limbs.
I was talking to Yvette of Joulebody http://thekickstartdiet.com/ about her logo and the concept of words alone creating images,so I looked up Making Things Go ...Because of the wall of words created by John Tetz.
I Had no Idea there was a video........
To my friends John - Tom and Chris!
You guys are the best!!
"Making Things Go: Bikes and Human Powered Vehicles" will run at the Staten Island Museum through September 29, 2008. NOTE: please wait about 30 seconds for video to start. This segment was produced and aired by Time Warner Cable for "On The Beat," a local TV show.
How often is it that you see a cyclist riding under water? Yasser is an Egyptian blogger, and member of the The Cairo Cyclists Club, who took a dive last year in order to make a humorous statement with a serious environmental message behind it.
While Egyptians have always been opinionated and outspoken, the January 25th revolution has amplified numerous issues, including the need to become a more sustainable society.
Battery Park City's very own cargo bike service..... small haul NYC did it's first pet pick up today.....
You can't be everywhere - Yvette Rose of Joulebody Kickstart called with what she thought might be a crazy request.She asked if I could pick up her dog Papi from the vet on east 59th street. I've carried literary everything under the sun
Here I am with everything under the Sun
Papi was handed to me in his little carry bag that I gently placed in my Burley Trailer.
I wanted to stay of roads with heavy traffic so I rode Papi aross 60th street and through Central Park to the West Side Bikeway and down to Battery Park City. I checked on him a few times,he was all snuggled up in a little ball and didn't seem phased by the ride at all. When I took him out of his carrier he was very playful and loaded with energy.
They are inching towards they're goal but if they don't make it they start from Zero!
I've seen the world wide network of cyclists rise up over and over! But I'm just not sure why you all aren't jumping at the chance to help out when really needed!
Larry is a true Champion of Humanity. He has the drive, motivation and will to keep going no matter what. His Spirit will not be shattered even if they don't quite make it to the goal.I'm sure they will pick up , regroup and start again!

Larry / Friday, January 7th, 2011
We begin this year with a lot of energy and excitement, and also with a new website!
We are very thankful to the wonderful people at EGR International for supporting Ride with Larry and helping us build this great new site.
And its getting down to the wire for our fundraising campaign! If we don’t reach $50,000 by February 1st than we won’t get any of the money which will go to all the filming expenses that quickly accumulate on a project of this size! You can see the list below for just a few of our goals with this film. If everyone makes a small contribution, the equivalent of their morning cup of coffee or greater, think of how powerful that would be! We hope that you join us with your support to help us achieve this goal! Please share the link with others who would like to contribute:http://kck.st/faTC3H

Cycling since the age of six. Never got off my bike,.I became a bicycle messenger in the 80's for Can Carriers, Started Born to Run Bicycle Messengers a few years after. I guess I made an unconscious decision to use my car as little as possible in NYC until I just eventually got rid of it.
I've bicycle toured all over the States including Alaska,and Hawaii!I also made it to the jungles of Mexico. As far as Europe I've only made it to France.I've always been a Cycling Commuter in NYC from Manhattan,Queens and Ft Lee ,NJ.
