The week past I ran two different group outings on successive days to Citifield. Both teams on the field represented New York.   The first eve, we also raised some money for a Foundation I served as President for a two-year stint.   The second eve, for this networking group, I connected some folks who might benefit from the introduction.   I enjoyed both games, despite my team losing both games; a rarity for this ultra-competitive sports enthusiast.   Dining out last nigh...

I enjoy friends with rather diverse work and professional “assignments.” Not unusual to find some associated with a cause derived from their work. One such cause involves baseball. Not how the games get played. Not who plays it, coaches it, umps it or runs it. It involves how several hundred former players get screwed. As someone who advises labor unions and elected officials who make the plights of working families paramount, it infuriates this correspondent to learn a...

My household changes in the summer.   When one works in a school for the NYC Department of Education aka NYC Public Schools, one generally enjoys most of the season without any work responsibilities; so it goes for “Mrs. B.”   Of course some exceptions exist to that rule but not here in Grand Junction, the name my daughter gave our home in a social media application (and I adopted since my fave band’s first LP includes a great instrumental by that name (It also appears a...

Folks know my enjoyment of basketball.   I still play two times weekly, most often one eve and one weekend morning.   I talk basketball with my friends, mostly the pro game.   We discuss who the Knicks should keep or trade and what they need.   Strong feelings exist around certain players. Before the draft one friend suggested trading KP for a first round pick. Many want to see Mello go.   I prefer a balanced roster that plays strong D – D E F E N S E.   After all I gre...

Saturday was one of the special days. It repeats each year. It includes many folks and circles surrounding two friends who go back together to Kindergarten in the same nabe.  I only got to know them in high school. But for them it includes boys and girls who grew up together, attened the same elementary, junior high and high school, and for many of them, same synagogue and bar and bat mitzvah years. For me I tell others it involves a high school of sorts -- every summer.  Som...
We visited with my talented sister-in law yesterday at The FAD Market at The Invisible Dog Factory at 51 Bergen Street a few blocks south of Atlantic Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn. If you approach summer as Fred and Joanne Klein do, it makes sense to visit this location -- open from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., in particular to see "Images by Adrianne.   You'll see and enjoy the photos on aluminum and acrylics, picture greeting and holiday cards. We prefer you go see her art, b...
Read the other day how better health care and other environmental factors may allow some of us or others our near future to reach age 150 (and our Friday blogger only seeks 1/3 of that number).   I found myself musing what activities might one pursue approaching well short of those numbers.   We socialize with people in our age range, some a bit older, some not much younger.   Last night with two other couples we talked retirements (only one on pension but still working pa...

I enjoy helping and making a difference.   Friday eve involved a celebration of making a small difference for charities selected by the Kings-FDR Tolerance Foundation, the charitable arm of FDR Lodge 613 Knights of Pythias. Throughout the year we raise money from social and other events. We raised funds at Halloween and Sweethearts Dances I ran with my friend Eric and a New Year’s Eve Party that I ran with CPA Ira Spiegel, a member of Gotham First and our Foundation VP. S...

Father’s Day   Four generations gathered yesterday to honor the dads: Shelly’s Dad, our niece’s husband, and this correspondent. Unlike years prior, I “enjoyed” no responsibilities on the grill; I just provided transit for Shelly, her dad and her sister. Shelly posted her usual group of pics on Facebook: Tara and Dave with baby Eden, Shelly and Susan with their dad Lou, and Jonathan with his dad – me!   Marisa’s card arrived on Friday; she always shares sentiments that t...

RIP Adam West. I really enjoyed that series in my youth. I enjoyed the comics. In all his appearances always a nice person. RIP Batman.   I took to social media, Twitter to be exact, when I wanted to learn about his passing. I learned he enjoyed 150,000 followers and only followed 115. His page said he joined Twitter in March 2009 – one month after me – and tweeted 474 times over the eight plus years on the platform. I do not think I tweet enough but I my total runs mor...
