Rank them most onerous to least and start with most. You get a greater feeling of accomplishment in the beginning, and the tasks get easier as you tire.

Well, I was going on about nature/nurture, but if you're asking if the parents emotional state at the time of conception influences the child's personality, no.

It is pronounced eebeetha, because in Spanish the 'z' has a 'th' sound. This does not hold true in Latin America, where it is pronounced with an 's' sound. There is no 'z' sound in the language as most speak it.

New Madrid (in Missouri, famous for earthquakes) pronounced MAD,rid as in mad and rid with emphasis on the mad.

There are many such places in the States, where they named the town after a place in Europe and then changed the pronunciation, either out of ignorance or repudiation.

The most dramatic is from Highway 495 on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River. The highway goes from Northern Jersey into Manhattan through the Lincoln Tunnel. There is a place where the highway is running South parallel to the river just before it makes a 180 degree turn to go down to the tunnel. There is/was a hill between the highway and the river which blocks your view, but just before you make that big sweeping turn the hill disappears and there is nothing between you and Manhattan but the river. The hill just suddenly stops and, bam, there it is; it seems so close you could touch it, but far enough away that you can see the whole thing. This was my very first view of the city and I have never forgotten it. This was many years ago, but looking at Google Maps it appears to be the same.

Again, looking at Google Maps, there is a street called Port Imperial Blvd. on the other side of that hill that would give you good views, IF it's up on the bluff. I can't tell from looking at GM, but if it's not up on the bluff it wouldn't be a good prospect.

Your best view will be found along the Hudson River on the Jersey side. The Staten Island Ferry is good too, but will only show you Lower Manhattan as it approaches from the South and the bulk of Manhattan will be blocked by the financial district.

When I was a youngster I asked my mother why I wasn't good-looking. "It just wasn't in the cards," said she. (Gee, thanks a lot, Mom) Then I got older, learned a bit about genetics, looked around at my relatives, and Mom was right. I didn't stand a chance.
