It was in the personal section of yesterday's Wall Street Journal -- carrying two cell phones. For me, it started rather innocently. When Flo upgraded to a newer iPhone, her iPhone became available. I have always had a Blackberry (perhaps the subject of a another blog) which had increasingly become more of an office number. Our grandson had just been born and the notion of a better camera on my phone was appealing. I also had an envious admiration for how the iPhone see...

I reached across the desk for the stapler, carefully positioned the papers, and squeezed. Nothing. The stapler was empty. So I reached into the drawer and took out the plastic box of staples. I was amazed that there were only five strips left. I checked the drawer. No strips had fallen out. There are 5,000 staples to a box. 210 staples to a strip...and, having put a strip into the stapler, only four strips left. I remember when I got the box. It was 4,000 staple...

I like to vacation in familiar places. We have a time share in Aruba and, at last count, have been back seven times (plus a few times before we got the time share). Our son and daughter-in-law, Jason and Alyssa have been with us seven times -- and their son, our grandson, Jackson, was with us for the first time (but certainly not last) two weeks ago. Some people ask how you can go back to the same place time and time again. I love it. Get off the plane, pick up a car an...

Last week Fred blogged about "Menu Management" -- managing the food that his wife Joanne orders. If it turns out that she doesn't like what she ordered, Fred (gladly) switches plates. Flo and I have a similar arrangement at theaters. With few exceptions, Flo usually finds the tallest person in the theater to sit in front of her. And once that person has comfortably seated his or her self, Flo and I change seats. Like Fred with Joanne's food, it is just something I offer...

As I write this, I am on vacation; albeit “turning the corner” on this vacation. As much behind as lies ahead. 13.1 miles into the marathon. It occurs to me that there is always a “turning the corner”. In everything we do, there’s a point at which we’re half-way through. Midway. Something behind us and something ahead.   Sometimes turning the corner is a good thing. Sometimes it's not. Sometimes we don’t know that we've turned the corner, or whether it’s good or bad. ...

It seemed that everyone was doing it, so we gave it a try. Netflix that is. First “Breaking Bad”, then “House of Cards.” As late comers, we're still catching up with the old seasons. I can get as addicted as the next person. I was completely in to “24” and Monday nights were off-base for anything except watching the show. We were in Seattle for a long weekend and were taking the redeye back on Monday night. It happened that when we drove up to the Hotel in Seattle on Fr...

I was so relieved when Nancy blogged last week about enough snow for this season. I figured that, with the well-respected Power of Gotham, we would be free of the white stuff for the rest of the winter. I won't lose faith in the Power of Gotham. I must accept the fact that there are forces at work with the weather that even Gotham's might can't negate. So, as I write this, we prepare for another snowfall and disruption of our usual routines. (Although dealing with the s...

Recently, I've seen an increasing number of articles about minimizing one's life. Just yesterday there was a piece online about a man who, as director of operations for a telecom company in Ohio, was asked to submit a plan to close stores and terminate 41 employees. He submitted the plan, with his name of the top of the list. He left his job and started to dispose of most of his possessions. We have certainly accumulated a lot of stuff and I often find myself wondering ...

We were in Florida last weekend visiting my Mom in Delray. Every morning we took a walk along the beach and enjoyed the 50 degree temperature difference from home. (I understand how the happiness of New Yorkers in Florida is tied to the difference in the weather.) While walking I couldn't help but think of the dog walking blogs --- Fred's and David's. Lots of people walking dogs along Delray's beach. As the young man came toward us, I focused on his dog. An elderly Gol...

I often wonder about the "personalities" of machines and other inanimate objects. We have a Keurig coffee maker at home. A few weeks after we bought it, it started acting funny. By "funny" I mean that it never gave you the amount of coffee that you asked for. Regardless of the button you pushed -- for a small, medium, or large cup of coffee, it gave you the amount it wanted to give, usually a small cup. I just got used to going through the process twice (using the sam...
