It was a small innocuous message in a plastic stand on the restaurant table. It could have easily been confused with an invitation to try the breakfast special. But the message was different. It informed the patron that the restaurant was “cashless”. No further explanation…. just information. I have mixed feelings about cashless. On the one hand, it probably doesn’t impact me personally —unless they don’t accept the credit card that I happen to have in my wallet. On the...

When Fellow Gothamite and co-chair of the Long Island Dinner Group, Laurel Scarr-Konel asked me whether I would like to judge a high school Moot Court competition, I paused for a few moments before volunteering with an enthusiastic “Yes”. In those few moments, my thoughts went from my time commitments to “could be interesting” to giving back to the community. Giving back is so important and there are so many ways to do so. If I can, perhaps, touch even a single high s...

This blog had to be rewritten. My blog asked the question “would you fly on a 737 Max 8?” The question has been rendered moot by the grounding of the planes in the U.S. yesterday afternoon. However, the issues remain and the question can be simply rephrased: “Would you have flown on a 737 Max?” Two accidents seemingly of very similar circumstances. Almost immediate action by several countries with an ever-increasing number joining. Yet, as I wrote the original blog, the ...

It was one of those tough decisions. We were in Aruba and scheduled to fly back to New York last Sunday. The weather forecast in New York was for a snow storm and the prediction was ominous. We called the airline. The flight had not yet been cancelled but the airline would change our reservations to a flight on Monday. Thoughts of being stuck at the airport raced. Then, a telephone call from my brother-in-law with the ever-increasing predicted accumulation. Followed by ...

Greetings from the Happy Island of Aruba. So, we’re walking on the beach and see two women taking pictures of delicious-looking fruit bowls. Couldn’t resist asking where they (the fruit bowls) were from. “Eduardo’s Beach Shack just over there.” As they pointed away from the water. We walked a little longer before turning around and began searching. It wasn’t long before we found Eduardo’s. We ordered our bowls and walked and found a spot to enjoy. After a few minutes, t...

As I write this blog, we anticipate a few days of unusual cold. As you read this, we should be in the throws of the “life-threatening” cold. The polar vortex is that mass of very cold air that circulates over the Arctic. Usually, it stays in place — over the North Pole. But sometimes, the vortex weakens and when it does, it travels south and invades our continent. I did a little research and, yes, there is evidence that with climate change and warmer temperatures, the wea...

We recently visited the Conservation Laboratory at the Brooklyn Museum. Explaining the intricate process of restoring/repairing a beautiful glass goblet from the 1800s, the Conservator shared the lengthy and detailed analysis that goes into determining the chemical composition of the glass in an effort to match the most-appropriate epoxy for the repair. And she shared that there was a little box on the shelf that contained a shattered glass vessel. A valuable repres...

It was a nice jacket. Would probably have served me well...I think. However, it was, to my mind, over-priced. I went back a few times to see if it was still on the rack as the post-holiday sales gained momentum. Although reduced, the price was still too high. But, perhaps, going in the right direction. Last time we went back, it was gone. The price must have been right for someone else. By the way, I won’t miss the jacket. ...

I recently opened an occasionally-used news app on my smartphone. A notice appeared about the use of cookies by the app. Long legal explanations and disclaimers. A request to accept before going on. However, there was no ability to decline permission. I tried to get around the notice without consenting, but could not. I thought about all of the warnings about tracking personal data. I considered that my personal data must be followed by other apps. I debated whether I re...
