The world of movies has been turned upside down by the advent of Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, Disney Plus etc. etc.  People were able to see new and important movies on their new big flat screens.  And, then the  Covid pandemic took the theater film business to its knees.   I am a dedicated big screen fan.  Seeing a movie big makes you feel that you are in for a special experience and in a unique world.  Big people, bigger buildings, gorgeous scenery all created to look spectacu...

We are all busy professionals. As a direct result, I have found that as my career progressed, I have become obsessed with lists. In the early days as a young lawyer, I literally kept a separate “To Do” pad. I would start the week on the top page and then color code and move tasks that needed to be completed onto later pages as the week progressed. I can still clearly reach the emotion of panic on the few occasions that pad was misplaced. Now my lists are electronic. I have...

My blog today is a simple one, are you or are you not a sushi person? It has been my experience that most people either love it or hate it.   I am a sushi person. When I was twelve, my Dad spent a month in Japan. When he came home he excitedly told us that he had to introduce us to sushi. It sounded so weird and exotic then. There were only two restaurants that it served it on Long Island, one in Rockville Center and the other in Greenvale. From the moment I tasted sushi,  ...

It was suggested midweek that this blog cover something that becomes official tomorrow but it makes sense to share that in a subsequent commentary. I prefer to share something that never occurred with me and a baseball game. Last Tuesday, we stayed for the entire game despite the home team – my beloved team – not likely at all to rally to victory. We opted not to beat the traffic. We remained the entire time. If you followed me on twitter, you viewed my upset about aspects o...

I'm confused. Do I wear a mask or not?   Friday night I attended what was, I believe, the first Gotham meeting in a very long time. I walked in with a mask on but out of the 35 or so people attending, i was one of three who wore one.   It was outdoors, but personally, I was a bit nervous. I am vaccinated but still carry some fear with me whereever I go. So I wore the mask for most of the time. When I ate I took it off and kept it off till I left....

When I first learned that my fanfav Aaron Judge and 9 other Yankee teammates would be sidelined for 10 days for testing positive for Covid I was crestfallen. Seriously dim viewed! But, as usual, my time tested adage “Up is down and down is up” proved true as the Yankees dipped into their minor league system for replacements and some, if not all, saw that opportunity knocks and seized on their chance and knocked it out of the park! I am so pleased with these younger, faster ...

My four year old grandson and I were sitting in the backyard last Saturday watching the birds and thoroughly enjoying the beautiful weather. Birds were chirping and we heard a distinctively loud cackle followed by an answering cackle.We smiled as we realized that the birds were talking to each other.“What do you think they are saying to each other?” I asked.“They’re saying ‘I love you’. “ my grandson answered with a big smile.I’ve been thinking about how wonderful it is to he...

I was excited to get an invitation from the Gotham Tribal Council to take on the Wednesday Blog Spot in the Gotham weekly lineup.  Filling the site that was so passionately helmed by the inspiring Carly Meyer will be a challenge that I look forward to embrace.   As some of you may know, I have an avid interest in Movies, Music, Museums, Theater, Books, and Television. I look forward to taking the role of the Culture Vulture.  I will be on the prowl for the latest cultural e...

  Admittedly, I don’t have the greatest sense of direction – but DC has me completely turned around. We spent last weekend moving my daughter to DC (she starts her PhD at Georgetown in a couple of weeks – go Jaclyn! – but that is not the point of my story). Even Bill had trouble figuring out the city – and he is that guy who goes somewhere once, and can then eternally return without directions. I know I am dating myself, but when we were first married my job was to read...

Do you post reviews on the internet or social media? Several years ago I wrote a series of blogs about how it felt to be the victim of a vicious, and fraudulent, internet attack. Since that time, I have learned how to properly protect my online reputation and how important it is to do so.     I decided, however, that I wanted to take something else out of my personal experience.  I will no longer post a bad review. If I have a problem with the service of any company I will ...

From time to time I enjoy the honor of guiding candidates who seek public office. Win or lose the opportunity to help aspirants make a difference and become stronger candidates and better at what they do makes the task worth my time. At the end of last year and over this month and last, I found another electoral task to delve into: My Community Board 13 tasked me with running the election process for its leadership during COVID-19.   Since meetings took place over Zoom, it in...

Do you do things for other people without them knowing? I found myself thinking about that when a friend made a point of what he did for me. Did he need acknowledgement? Is he self promoting so I'll think better of him?   IMHO being considerate to another fellow human being is part of being human. If it is acknowedged, that's nice but isn't that beside the point.   Taking care of each other is what we need to do. Even the simplest of things are important. For instance, holdin...

My commute is back. Some never stopped but, for me, the easing of restrictions allows a gradual and deliberate return to the office.Getting to the office means commuting — in my case, a twenty to thirty minute drive. I had commuted to work my whole life — until March of 2020. As with so many of us, working remotely cut my commute to a few steps.While working remotely from home - and not commuting - I was mindful of the impact of not commuting. Among the things that came to mi...
