  A new prince arrived yesterday. And the world rejoiced.     I have been a royal follower for a long time. Really, back to Princess Diana whose life, and death, I always followed.   Yesterday, I was taken by the fact that Kate, with a baby just 7 hours old, was dressed, poised and looking great showing off her new son on the steps of the hospital.     I remember what I was like when my children were 7 hours old. Trust me, there was no shot at a public appearance either...

  How do I know? It’s not because the weather is warm and the flowers are starting to bloom. It’s not because the smell of grass has taken over from the smell of snow. Yes, snow does have a smell. It’s surely not because our percentage of meals on the grill has escalated.     It is because baseball is on the television in my house all the time – from morning til night. No exceptions. Our family rule about no television during dinner is suffering from serious spring season c...

  I went looking for some photos recently. I wanted to share some memories from when my kids were young with a friend.     When I use the word “share” however, it isn’t intended in the context of social media. I really wanted to sit at a table with old photos, stroll down memory lane, and physically give some to a friend.     But when I started to pull photo albums from where they are stored in my basement, it quickly became clear that from a point in time forward, I don’...

  I have blogged many times over the years about social media, Facebook and related medium. Most of those posts have been about personal social media use.     Here is my question for today.     Do you use social media to help promote your business? If so, what have you found to be effective or ineffective? Inquiring minds want to know.   ...

  I think about the lessons that we have imparted to our children.     Work hard and accept responsibility, be considerate and show your love of others, embrace the elephants in your life, speak out if you see injustice, make a difference in the world around you, clean up after yourself, and on and on.     Over the past few weeks, I am convinced that we are now learning from our children.     Stand up and let the world hear your worries, don’t accept something you beli...

  Social media groups that is  -- an amazing resource if you are prepared to embrace it.     Facebook groups offer communities bonded around commonalities. There are Moms Groups, vacation groups, and food groups. Group members who are perfect strangers become friends in the presence of the rest of the community. It’s quite the phenomenon.     Amongst my favorites are the Tri-State Restaurant Club (where I get most of my restaurant recommendations and where David Abeshou...

  Today’s storm doesn’t look as if it is going to be as bad as initially predicted, at least here in New York. But with this being the third storm in two weeks, I’m asking this question – are we done yet? I am ready for the spring. Ready to put away my heavy winter coat, ready to open windows, ready to walk outside. So this morning I am saying, snow – please go away....

  In 1957, the LIRR created the image of “Dashing Dan” intended to personify its slogan, “The Route of the Dashing Commuter.” Dan was well dressed holding his hat with one hand as he ran to catch his train. Dan lasted on his own until around 1963 when Dashing Dottie was introduced, complete with high heels, skirt and handbag.     The introduction of Dottie was responsive to a population of women commenting that Dan wasn’t alone in his commute. In fact, women were entering t...

  Over the past few days, amidst funeral plans, vigils and protests, we have seen the children, really young adults, of Parkland, Florida raise their voices.   They accuse the adults of having blood on their hands. With passion and strong articulate words, they speak of change they want to, better said demand to, see. They ask, can our politicians, our government leaders, look them in the eye and still not work together to find a fix to this ever-growing American tragedy?   ...

  I was reminiscing with a friend the other day about how much food played a part in our respective childhoods. So many of my memories circle back to something having to do with food. Whether it was a special restaurant or a special recipe, the food theme was prevalent.     For example, anyone remember Cooky’s Steak Pub? It was a favorite evening out in our family, always with my grandparents. The shrimp on the salad bar were plentiful but the star of the evening was the ba...
