  Well, maybe not really breaking news.     I cannot take credit for this thought but I have to say it stuck with me. A Sunday morning news commentator posited the following observation which resonated with me.     Do you remember the feeling that came along with that ominous, but extraordinarily rare, announcement of “Breaking News”? I do. It was that feeling that said stand up and pay attention because something big had just happened; something out of the ordinary, some...

  In this ongoing playoff season, I started to think about my own baseball memories. Growing up, my grandfather was the biggest baseball fan around me. When you think of favorite people in your life, he ranks very high.     He was a huge Mets fan. Whenever a game was on, you could find him planted in front of the television cheering on his team. Actually, cheering is one way to put it – loud coaching is another – yelling at the screen might be yet another. He definitely had...

  This past weekend, I experienced a first. My first Big 10 Football game.   We were visiting my son for family weekend (how could that have happened already?) and the Maryland campus was ready for football.     We walked by many a tailgate tent on our way up to the stadium. OK, I admit to never having seen a tailgate before and the tents were interesting. We had read earlier about the security requirements at the stadium so we were prepared with our clear plastic 12” x 6” ...

  Do you have cash in your wallet? I’m not asking how much just whether there is anything green in there. I’m pretty sure the answer is generational.     I always have cash in my wallet, together with some emergency money stashed somewhere for well, an emergency.     However, with the advent of Paypal and Venmo and mobile banking of all sorts, is there really a need for cash anymore?     I know that my children and their friends hardly ever carry cash.     How abou...

  I’m not happy about it but here we are – it’s the official end of summer.   You know, it’s that time of year when the weather starts to change, the kids all head off to school and that slowed down pace we had all become accustomed to disappears with the heat of the sun.     Oh wait – it was over 90 degrees today and the forecast is the same for the indefinite future. Does this mean that I can drive up to college and bring my son home on the basis that summer really isn’t ...

  A while back, some of you may remember that I asked for some recommendations to help us build a new deck. Of course, Gotham came through.     Gotham member Todd Bragin recommended Keith from Stellar Decks. Keith came with high praises from Todd. And the process began.     When it became clear that we needed an architect, we turned to Gotham’s own Al D’Elia. Al jumped right in and was ready with plans, revised plans, more revised plans and good cheer as the project moved...

  The other day, I pulled into a parking lot by a local store. Another driver and I approached an open spot at exactly the same time from opposite directions.     How many of us have had that experience? The other driver looks angrily, honks, won’t move, etc. All because of a proprietary feeling over a parking spot.     On this particular day, however, we both looked at each other and laughed – and the other driver promptly waved at me, backed up and took another spot.   ...

  We are doing it again. Packing to send a child off to college.     This time its my son and a completely different experience.     When we moved my daughter in to school – each of four years – it was a three day process. Freshman year there were actually ceremonies that the parents attended but after that, it was about shopping and putting furniture together, space planning and decorating.     So now we are getting ready to do it again but at a different school. I ca...
