Because it is important.  Corey and Rona started this conversation.  It deserves to be continued. In the same steps as Rona, I also started my career in the late 1980’s as a young Jewish lawyer walking behind RBG.  Rona and I were actually young lawyers together at the same firm. I didn’t really know RBG at the time.  I didn’t know that that she had fought the fight for me and was continuing to be my champion.  I wish I did.  I certainly didn’t know that she would be conti...

I wanted to add my own thoughts and feelings to Corey’s blog about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. As he wrote, there are many others who eloquently wrote beautiful obituaries which I will not repeat. I just wanted to share my perspective.   As a female, Jewish, lawyer, who started her career in the late 1980’s,  I walked behind RBG. While she could not get a job in a New York City law firm-despite being first in her class at Columbia-I started at a large law firm with one female partn...
I generally know the topic of a blog in advance and, today, I expected to urge folks to apply and/or encourage others to apply for the Gotham Green Awards®. Circumstances changed and how. Between dinner and dessert Friday eve, I learned that we lost a veritable national treasure — Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States Ruth Bader Ginsburg – “a jurist of historic stature,” according to Chief Justice John Roberts.   This distinguished American of humble Bro...

A farmer from Bombay recently revealed that when the pandemic forced schools to move their classes online, he had borrowed money from his friends so he could buy a smartphone for his 10-year-old daughter so she could study. However, after a while, his friends wanted him to pay back the money he had borrowed.   To do that, he would have had to sell the smartphone to arrange for the money, but the thought of breaking his daughter's heart forced him to make the difficult decisio...

One of my many problems is that I always remember my dreams. Remember The Paper Chase movie wherein Professor Kingsfield (pictured) terrorized first year law students?Well, my nightmare is my own terrorized Paper Chase embellishment:  I’m a first year law student and I’m always unprepared and Professor Kingsfield is always calling on me. Then before I can be at a terrorized loss for words or make a fool of myself I wake up shaking in a cold sweat. Sound familiar?  What’s your...

We watch on television as the fires rage on the West Coast. We are safe in front of our screens and observe what is happening so far away. The other day, I was on the phone with an attorney in California and I asked him how he was doing. He described the surreal fire-polluted air and not being able to leave his home. As he spoke, the radio in my home in the background reported that the haze in New York’s air was from the West Coast fires. Step away from your screen. We are al...

  Cheer*lead*er: A noun, -An enthusiastic and vocal supporter of someone or something.   Ever since I can remember, I wanted to be a cheerleader. My mother would ask me at the start of every school year, “what do you want to be when you grow up.” To her dissatisfaction, every year my answer was always the same. I wanted to be a cheerleader. She used to encourage me to “play the sport”, to “be a participant in the sport, not a cheerleader for other players.” In hindsight, I k...

We did not vacation at all this summer. It literally felt like one long, hot summer day. I am not really complaining. If you know me at all, you have heard me talk about how much I enjoy chilling in my back yard. I actually enjoyed my outdoors this summer more than any summer before. That said, I am starting to itch to do something, or at least plan something. Even a day trip. Have you ventured out this summer Gotham? If so, would you share your destination and COVID saf...

During this pandemic we have celebrated a lot of milestone birthdays, 25, 30, 85(my mother-in-law) and soon 60 (my husband). In planning these celebrations and working to make them special during the pandemic a material issue has come up each time, what sort of the birthday cake, cake or ice cream?   For my birthday, although it was not a milestone, it was not even a decision, I love cake. More specifically, I love frosting. I look at cake as a vehicle for delivering the fro...

Two blogs ago I shared taking in a show via the Internet. For the first time in six long months, last night I got to see a band play....LIVE. Yes we wore masks. The band played on a street corner literally. Outside a restaurant where we grabbed dinner.. I later remarked to the drummer -- Curt Arnel, a long-time friend from Hofstra law school that I never recalled a set or even a segue on the radio where Peaceful Easy Feelin’ (Eagles) got sandwiched between What’s Goin’ On (Ma...

I was asked a question last Thursday at a meeting...What's your hidden talent? It was a good question because I believe I really don't hide anything although I did come up with these;   • Barbecueing (I love to grill or smoke anything:) • Woodworking (I hand crafted the mouldings in the addition to my house to match the ones in the orignial 100 year old part) • Driving (I can drive any vehicle of any size) • Carve a turkey (at least Norman thinks so:)   What's yours?...

I admit that I have been a life long sucker (there’s that word) for a bargain.  I am drawn to one like Icarus to the sun. So it’s no surprise that I love CVS!I love the discount certificates that come when I pay.  I love the discounts that come by email and when I click on them go straight to my CVS card. I love that I can find almost anything in the well stocked stores. I love the 2 for 1 sales. And after a “calm down” tutorial from my wife Joanne, I now love the self check ...

I posted this blog six months ago. Little did we know…… Last Sunday, we took a flight back to New York from the happy island of Aruba (that’s the subject of another blog). I had given some thought to the usual concerns associated with flying and getting sick. Flo had a very adequate supply of antibacterial wipes - which were put to good use. I thought I had it under control yet was surprised by my reaction to the face masks on the plane. But it was more than I had expec...

What a difference a year makes. I always loved the start of the school year. Even now, as an adult, in early September I find myself buying new notebooks and pens. The beginning of each school year always felt like the first step of a new adventure with all sorts of surprises in store. Well, part of that is still true. This school year is certainly a new adventure with surprises in store but this time also great trepidation and worry. Many of us have children heading back...

As I write this blog, I am watching my husband prepare and marinade Chilean Sea Bass for our barbecue later this afternoon. My husband has worked on this preparation for years. He has spent a lot of time over the years tweaking the ingredients of the marinade as well as the grilling time. He has perfected both and his Chilean Sea Bass has become a favorite of our family.   Marinated and grilled Chilean Sea Bass has become my husband’s specialty dish. Do you have a specialty ...
