It happened again last week. I was rushing to get to work on time and, while putting on my panty hose, I noticed a run in them. I quickly grabbed another pair. As I was now late, I rushed to put on the new pair. In my haste,  my finger went through them causing a hole.   Happily, I was able to get the third pair on without any mishaps and get to work. But, throughout my drive to work that day, I was annoyed thinking about the waste of money spent on two pairs of panty hose, o...

Recently, I wrote about a controversy in my home, toilet seats up or down. And I was grateful for all the responses. Apparently, there is another debate brewing in my home and it concerns ice, crushed or cubes?   My refrigerator makes both crushed ice and ice cubes. I have learned that I seem to have an aversion to crushed ice. My daughter loves to make herself a large cup of crushed ice and will leave the refrigerator on that setting when she’s finished. If I do not look at ...

As I watched the coverage of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, I noticed that I was extremely uncomfortable watching the news reporters give live feeds from outside during the storms. I watched, with a bit of disbelief, a news reporter from CNN reporting from the middle of the flooded streets of Miami advising everyone that there was a mandatory curfew in effect as the streets of Miami were an extremely dangerous place to be. The juxtaposition between where she was standing and wha...

In the past, I would have followed the reporting of hurricanes, earthquakes etc. with a sense of empathy but, admittedly, also with a bit of apathy. In this world in which we are immediately connected to world events through the internet, it is easy to become a bit emotionally detached from world events.   I noticed, however, that my interest in Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma is much different other natural disasters. I have been anxiusly watching CNN for updates on both...

Having had an unexpectedly hectic summer, my husband and I decided to look into taking a quick, low cost, get away this weekend. We looked into various road trips as well as places that were a short flight away. I was shocked as to how inexpensive it would be to fly to Orlando. Hotel prices were equally inexpensive. Apparently, as school starts here this week and has already started in Florida, Orlando is not a popular Labor Day destination.   Initially hesitant about bookin...

There has been a huge controversy going on in my town of Oceanside for approximately three years. It began when Costco filed permits to build one of their warehouses in Oceanside. Immediately those opposed to the project began letting their voices loudly be heard, at Town of Hempstead and local meetings. Their objections were varied from traffic concerns to the effect a Costco might have on the  local small  businesses.   Costco fans who were supporting the project were less ...

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...
