Academy Awards this Sunday, February 26

Time to pick the best picture and actors!  You can still catch most of the nominated movies at the local theaters and on DVD.  Watch the Academy Awards on Sunday evening.  Start with the Red Carpet pre-show which is on several TV channels.  I love the fashions, seeing who has the best and the worst outfit!   Check out the official Academy Award website for the nominees and all things Oscar.  http://www.oscars.org

NYC 2010 Scavenger Hunt for Au Pair in America NY Clusters

October 24, 2010 was the 2nd annual NYC Scavenger Hunt for the NY Au Pair in America Au Pairs.  Au Pairs from as far east as the Long Island Hamptons ventured into the city to join other Long Island Au Pairs, Au Pairs from NYC and Westchester to spend two hours running all over NYC to find items on the list.  We started out on the steps of the main NYC Library and ended in Bryant Park.  There were awards for 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th place won by the teams who were the quickest and found the most items on the list.  Some au pairs also won raffles and everyone went home with a Halloween goody bag!  Lots of fun and a great way to experience NYC!
