  Its two days later and social media is still all abuzz about the Royal Wedding. I believe Russel Crowe expressed it best. He tweeted, “It feels like the world paused for a moment to witness love.” I felt the same way, with all of the horrific news coming out of Texas and Cuba on Friday it was nice to take a short break away and witness the wedding of a young couple in love.     Watching Harry’s expression when he saw his bride walking down the aisle and seeing him mout...

  Fred has a saying that I love, “Let your freak flag fly.” While I have never specifically discussed this with Fred, I have always taken this to mean, be proud of your individuality. Embrace what makes you different.     For me, my freak flag involves my love of science fiction. I grew up watching science ficton on television, “Star Trek,” “Lost in Space,” and “Space 1999” (only true science fiction fans would know the last one). As an avid reader of any type of fiction, a...

  Do you ever wish you could go back in time and give advice to your younger self?     In court last week, a judge asked me a question. I began my response with, “Honestly Judge. . .” Before I could get the rest of my response out the judge stopped me, laughed and said, “If I could get some honesty in my courtroom that would be so refreshing.” We both shared a laugh and moved on.     That exchange immediately brought me back to back to a similar incident that occurred to ...

  I read an article this morning which said that Princess Kate and Prince William are celebrating their first anniversary as a family of five. In reading that article my first thought went to the fact that, after the birth of Prince Louis this week they now have an older child, middle child and youngest child.     I grew up in a family of five. I was the middle child with an older brother and younger sister. Happily, the three of us are still relatively close and I consider...

  It seems that everything that was old is new again on television. First there was a Full House (one of my kids’ favorite shows) reboot on Netflix. That was followed by Will and Grace, which was the followed by Roseanne.     And now Murphy Brown is scheduled to return to television. What do you think about these reboots? Have you been watching?   ...

  Somehow, I connected Fred’s blog last week with voyeurism. He had written about the history of special prosecutors and my comment was, “To be a fly on the wall in the special prosecutor's office. . .”     Obviously, my comment indicated my real interest in the inner workings of Robert Mueller’s office. I would love to see the evidence he’s going through, how he’s sifting through it and coming to his conclusions;  what his process is.   If you could go behind anyone’s d...

  I have, reluctantly, realized that I’m a social media stalker. I initially joined Facebook with the sole intention of using it as a tool to see what my children were doing while away at college. As my personal use of Facebook increased, their personal use decreased significantly.     My children barely now, if ever, use Facebook. They do, however, post frequently on Snapchat and once a day on Instagram (apparently, it is not cool to post more than one post a day on Instag...

  Do you embarrass easily? I’ve been thinking a lot about embarrassment as a result of a chance encounter I had last week.     For many who may not know, I was divorced from my first husband in 1997. My divorce was a bit of a “scandal” in East Meadow-where we lived at the time-as my husband, a member of the school board had a relatively public affair with a PTA vice-president. As my children were very young at the time-one and six-I tried, as best as I could, to ignore the ...

  In the wake of the Me Too movement, there has been a lot of discussion about the changing of the country’s mindset with respect to sexual assault and sexual harassment. But, to me, it’s a lot more basic than that. We need to start from the ground up. It has to begin with changing mindsets about what sort of behavior and speech are appropriate. Two recent experiences I had, which happened within a day of each other, illustrate my point.     On a recent Friday afternoon I ...

  In a page out of Mitch’s playbook, I had to write about a story I read about in the news this week. Apparently, in France, the government has a say in what names a parent can use for their children. Up until 1993, parents can only choose names from an approved government list. While the list is no longer mandatory, the government has been known to intervene when it determines that children’s names are inappropriate.     Recently, in Brittany, France a baby girl was born w...
