To complain or not to complain..... I had organized a trip that included a lunch for about 35 people. It was a nice place with a water view. The buffet was set up with an array of choices. Things seemed fine. A day or two later I received an email from my contact at the place asking how things had gone. Before I sent my usual “fine” and thanks, I thought about it and reached out to a few people who were at lunch. Two complaints surfaced. I’m not sure that either would...

We’re lucky to live where we can enjoy the colors of autumn.Last weekend, we enjoyed the fall foliage in the Berkshires. During the drive north, we saw the gradual differentiation in the colors of the leaves and wondered what colors awaited us at our destination.It’s still shy of peak.Another weekend and a little further north. The colors await....

What goes around comes around — whether you know it or not. A few years ago I assisted a client of mine in resolving and terminating a long-standing business relationship. The attorney on the other side was a bit more aggressive than may have beennecessary under the circumstances — a point that was not lost on my client. A few weeks ago that same attorney called me asking that I reach out to my former client to assist the attorney in a call to a regulatory agency to cle...

As I was driving home from the office the other day, I glanced over at the car to my right and noticed the CNN logo on the car’s multi-media screen. He must also be listening to CNN. I listen to the news during my commute — when I’m not on the phone. I listen - and watch - the news far too much. I’m beginning to believe that it’s not good for me. However compelling and, perhaps, interesting, the news can become addictive. I’ve always tried to follow the guidance of ...

I blogged last week about that awkward moment when someone you don’t recognize greets you by name. Amparo and I continue to wonder how to handle that situation. Here is another situation spawned at a social event: I was introduced to a man at a wedding recently. He was from a small city and I mentioned the name of a friend of mine from there. (At weddings, a little Jewish geography is acceptable.) Well, the man whom I had just met proceeded to disparage my friend - ac...

It’s that awkward moment. “Hello Ben” she says as she smiles and extends her hand. I have no idea who she is. Several ideas quickly go through my head as I smile and extend my hand to hers. Do I pretend to know her without mentioning a name? Do I apologize and ask her who she is and how she knows me? All the while, I wonder when my puzzled look will become apparent. My natural reaction is to smile and try to get through without the potentially embarrassing admissi...

This weekend we will be celebrating my mother’s ninetieth birthday at a small gathering of family and her friends. As the day approaches, I contemplate what few words I might say in her honor and I realize that the words of others would add immeasurably to the predictable words of a biased son. Many of you in the Gotham family have met Esther. She has spoken to Gotham several times and joined us at our holiday party on at least one occasion. From your feedback, it is ...

Do you use straws? Do you like them? Do you care what they are made of? I ask these questions because I have been encountering a growing opposition to straws. We have actually converted to reusable hard plastic straws. The "last straw" was when I recently saw a restaurant’s admonition that “we only serve straws upon request”. But, somehow, it all makes sense to me. ...

We were in Falmouth for the 47th running of the prestigious Falmouth Road Race — a 7.1 mile run from the drawbridge in Woods Hole to the British Beer Company tavern in Falmouth Heights. Our Inn was right on the path of the race about a tenth of a mile from the finish. The porch gave us a perfect view. Watching the runners was inspirational and a bit nostalgic. Elite women and men and the mere mortals. Every one with a story, a purpose and a goal. There was even more insp...

You’ve got to discard (recycle) things from time to time. Advice I've heard is that if you haven’t used it in a year or two, it’s time to clean it out. I have followed that advice as best I can...usually without regret. This year we’ll be in Falmouth Massachusetts on the weekend of the famous Falmouth Road Race. I’ve been to Falmouth many times, but not on the weekend of the race that I ran over forty years ago. I regret having cleaned out the T Shirt and medal that I...
