If my recollections remain correct I’ve called ten places home, three almost a sort of hiatus between more longer term stays. I thought about that as my son looks forward to his latest home. Two shared with his parents. My son experienced three of the City’s five boroughs as a home. I’ve remained in Queens with a brief early stay across its eastern border. Some experience many homes. Some not so many. My daughter has only known two homes; her mom four.   Even my latest...

Our Friday blogger “complains” – perhaps mentors – that I use social media not enough. He often cajoles me to post – comment – more, especially on things that matter.  My wife sometimes counters I post too often.  On Facebook some friends (small f intended) may share divergent opinions.   Where facts support another view, I feel compelled to emphasize accuracy (In my practice what we often call "pushback" almost remains a requirement.).   Recently, some friends with whom I s...

I grew up loving football. Playing it. Organizing teams. Tackle. Touch. Flag. It did not matter. Strategizing (I'd argue none better!).   And today we all – at least the ratings say so – gather to watch the big one. The Super Bowl.   I recall watching my beloved Jets from a living room chair maybe four feet away from the set watching the greatest ever Super Bowl (At least it remains such for me.). I can only hope they return there in my lifetime; there’s a radio host...

Language matters.  Words matter.   It frames how we view things, events, people, ideas and more. We see pundits, politicians, PR pros, advertisers, marketers and other all use it.   It makes great sense to use words to point out hypocrisy and inconsistency where we find it; I enjoy ther use -- frequently I hope.   I prefer using it in a positive manner.   An example involves using the acronym for Gotham Queens to describe its recent rebranding. New group coordinator Dan S...
I had to cut short my weekend basketball (not easy when you shoot 75%) for baseball (well, sort of). I accepted an invite to visit Citifield – home of my beloved Mets with Shelly. Doors opened at 12:30 p.m. and hoops officially ends at noon but often runs a bistle over. Needless to say, we arrived a bit early. We met my brand new group sales liaison. Shelly then took and posted a photo of the “new Mets owner” on social media. Anyone who requested tickets I directed to Ju...
When I seek a respite from work mostly in and around politics (which I enjoy), I turn to sports and music.   I enjoy playing ball, with regular weekend and weeknight full court basketball “games” at my former elementary school gym.   Live music, especially from performers I’ve followed from back in the day who still got it, provides a real shot of adrenaline and more.   Occasionally, I get to enjoy both on the same day. Witness this weekend.   Almost a year ago I blogged ...

GREEN RIVER   This blog may tease some. It notes a special announcement that I get to make. Actually many. But in honor of some of the great leakers of news of the current White House, many anonymously memorialized in a book that shot to the top of the charts as this weekend began, no names. This Thursday, Gotham GREEN® announces the recipients of our Gotham Green Awards®. All very worthy. Trust me. I served on the selection committee.   Gotham GREEN® annually recogn...
Let me start with best wishes for the new year. I hope I helped a bit to get you ready with last week’s blog highlighting my song list to ring in the new year which also exists in a YouTube playlist. (If you tire of music since two weeks ago I covered my Holiday song playlist and last week I shared concerts I streamed driving to a Chanukag gathering, you better consider stopping now!)   For the past seven new year’s eves, I compose a different list.   A top ten list.   Al...

Two weeks back I shared my list Happy Holidays in songs to allow folks to enjoy musical cheer through the holiday season and that includes celebrations that continue today and tomorrow (and thereafter). Ahead of the new year we embrace, I offer an updated “Songs To Ring In The New Year.”   Please enjoy the new year. Ring it in loud and enjoy the playlist. And please share them.   Best wishes this holiday season and for the year....

Last week’s blog “released” a list of holiday-themes tunes for the season we currently enjoy. Not sure everyone seeks to hear those themes but certainly they predominate on radio dials. My ears and sometimes my eyes focused elsewhere when I chose music. I stumbled on a concert film, “Mark Knopfler & Emmylou Harris - Real Live Roadrunning - Full Concert” a few days back and played it in spots. It runs one hour forty plus; still have about one half hour to enjoy. Ridin...
