The March 1st deadline is quickly coming. It’s the day that single use plastic bags are banned in New York State. With certain exceptions, you will no longer take your groceries home in those plastic bags. As I thought about it, I decided to check on my inventory of reusable bags. I first checked the glove compartment in my car and found four bags neatly rolled and ready for use. There are more at home. Are you ready for March 1st? ...

The only certainty is change; how do we handle change? We checked into Ink48, a favorite hotel of ours in the City, on Friday, January 31st. As we checked in, we were advised that, as of midnight, the hotel would no longer be part of the Kimpton hotel chain. We had always known it as a Kimpton. Will we be going back to Ink48? Does the change give us the opportunity to explore other options? Coincidentally, Ink48 was not the only hotel to recently change its brand aff...

May this blog not be a jinx. So far, this winter (in NYC) has been very tolerable weather-wise. I don’t like heavy winter coats but the ragged coat in my closet needed to be replaced. So, I did. I am beginning to wonder whether I’ll ever need to wear the new coat this winter. As I walked the streets of the City recently, I saw a full range of winter clothing from sweaters and jackets to down parkas and more. I’ll always opt for the lightest coat I can — with an ap...

As the Super Bowl approaches this Sunday, I ask “What does this Super Bowl mean to me?” The Kansas City Chiefs against the San Francisco 49ers; neither team is one that I’ve followed. No favorites. No hats. But I look forward to the Super Bowl as a break. It should be a welcome distraction from the fracas in Washington and from the helicopter tragedy in California that took Kobe Bryant and others and is rocking the sports world and beyond. The incessant commentary of ...

A friend of mine from the DC area and I have a thing about hats...and sports. Last fall, he sent me a Washington Nationals cap to wear during the Worlds Series. I did. The Nats won. He sent me a Baltimore Ravens cap to wear during the Football playoffs earlier this month. I wore it. The cap drew comments as I wore it in New York. Out of town teams are not usually well tolerated in New York. A friend saw me in the Ravens cap and, being superstitious; saw it as a sign t...

This is about curiosity. We were driving home. A notification came in from our neighborhood alert: there was an accident, reported gunshots, at a major intersection near our home. It was an intersection that we would soon be routinely passing through on our way home. I was already mapping out the detour in my mind. My passenger, Flo, insisted on continuing on our way without diversion. “Let’s see what’s going on”. I had no interest in “seeing” – no curiosity -- b...

I first saw it as a fraud alert. The second reference was a professional suggestion forwarded to me. In case you haven’t seen it, I thought I’d share... Abbreviating 2020, as in 1/9/20, could be a problem — Especially in legal documents. The fear is that digits could be added causing confusion, or worse. For example, 1/9/20 could be changed to 1/9/2021. Let’s not speculate on the untoward causes of such an alteration, or its impact; the fact is to avoid the problem in...

Are you addicted to your cellphone? The question was recently posed to me and I have been considering it for the past few days. Many thoughts.... Addiction is a loaded word. Is it appropriate to our relationship with these now generally accepted standard devices? Obviously useful. Utility or addiction? A little of both? Connection to others at the cost of communication with those around you. I am still amazed when I see two people having dinner at a restaurant. A quiet table,...

We’ve been summer visitors to Martha’s Vineyard for years and I have a subscription to the Vineyard Gazette (most-recently renewed as a birthday gift from Jeremy). Keeping up with happenings on the Vineyard is fun; however following the Island’s local news in mid-December is a bit of a challenge. As I recently glanced at the front page of the weekly Gazette, nothing struck me as compelling and I was about to add the newsprint to the recycling pile. I paused and said to my...

We were talking about layering. Layering clothing. Fashionable. And a way of keeping comfortable as temperatures cool. As we talked, I thought about the clothing that was layered --- starting with the T shirt closest to the body. Then the shirt, sweater and vest. That’s how I visualized the layering. Flo described her layered clothes differently. She started with the outer clothing and worked inward. Interesting. Different perspectives of something so simple. A littl...
