I agree with what Ben wrote last Thursday. A solar eclipse certainly makes you think about the universe and our place in it. But, even with a solar eclipse occurring, we still have to continue with our day to day life. I have three matters on in Family Court this morning and a settlement conference scheduled for 2:00 p.m. at my office.   I spoke to the other lawyer on my settlement conference and we decided to take a break at the right time, go outside for a moment, and view ...

My household is comprised of six individuals; four are female and two are male. There is one debate that seems to be a constant argument in my house. We  discuss this issue, at least,  once a month and have never reached a consensus.  As one might expect we split right along gender lines.     So I have decided to throw this question out to the blogosphere. Perhaps Gotham can help  my family achieve harmony on this issue. The toilet seat, up or down? And, most importantly, why...

Last Wednesday night I attended the Gotham Long Island Quad meeting at The Westbury Manor. As I pulled up to the venue and gave the valet my car, I remembered that I forgotten to put cash in my wallet that morning. Thus, I had no money to tip the valet driver later in the evening. Knowing that my long time friend, Nancy Schess would be attending the event, I knew it would not be an issue.  I knew Nancy would lend me the $2.00 as soon as I told her the story.   Nancy was the f...

The news this week about O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing immediately brought me back to his murder trial. I was in a completely different place-than I am now- during that trial. I was a stay at home mom at that time and my youngest daughter was still an infant. My older daughter was in nursery school.   I remember being fascinated by the trial and its media coverage. I tried to sneak as much time in to watch the trial as I could between naps and nursery school. For me, for som...

I had one of those work weeks last week wherein you just long for the weekend. After five years of litigation, and five full trial dates, I finally settled the custody portion of a divorce case. (The support and equitable distribution portions of the case are scheduled for trial in September so that will be blog fodder for another day). After that, the weekend couldn’t come fast enough.   Happily, my weekend was filled with friends and family. Saturday night we hosted  my st...

I read an interesting article in the New York Times recently. It appears that the adult son and daughter of real estate mogul Philip Milstein-whose wealth Forbes estimated at $3.1 billion in 2015- believe in life after death. They reside in The Dakota in New York City and, given the history of the building, appear to believe that ghosts reside therein.   Their belief in the ghosts is so strong that they have taken to hosting séances in the apartment they share with their pare...

Sometimes I feel as though the world is changing so quickly that I cannot keep up. My children are using technology in ways I could never have imagined. And, to them, it’s practically second hand.   I used Uber for the first time last month when we used it to go to my step daughter’s graduation at Queens College. As parking at the school is very difficult to find, we parked at her apartment in Bayside and took an Uber to Queens College. Admittedly, I was amazed at how easy it...

I remember, when I was a child, numerous small stores  thrived in my town; clothing stores, book stores, hardware stores, shoe stores etc. I have so many memories of my Mom taking my brother, sister and I for back to school clothes at Chwatsky’s or new shoes at Jack’s Correct Fit. And, of course, the owners knew my Mom by name as well as me and my siblings. One by one as malls and larger department stores opened the small “mom and pop” stores closed. At that time, the large d...

I am very proud to say that all four of my children are college graduates and, in fact, two have their Master’s Degrees and have great jobs. The younger two are in the process of getting their graduate degrees; Ryan just finished his first year of law school and Sydney will be starting in September a combined program for her Masters in Special Education, Elementary Education with an additional certification in Applied Behavior Analysis. My husband and I are very proud of all ...

After I graduated law school, I took off for three weeks to travel with my college roommate. Given the state of domestic and foreign relations at the time my parents- whom I was still living with- were very nervous about “two young girls travelling alone.”  To appease their concerns, I promised to keep in touch. I kept in touch with my parents by calling them collect from a pay phone when we landed at our first destination.  According to our plan my parents refused the charg...
