Something that you learn more by observation than doing. Spacing out certain hard – aka physical – work. I still enjoy tending to my yard. Do not mind the exercise; though alternative exercise activities such as basketball or swimming I certainly enjoy why “playing.” This weekend – due to the famed midwinter recess closing the gym (in my boyhood elementary school) that my Knights of Pythias lodge rents, if the weather permitted – it did – I knew yard work would occur.   Not ...

Friday’s Times opinion page contained a column with an interesting title, “The Moral Indecency of the Away Message.” I only use a permanent away message for my AOL account which I elected not to regularly use almost a decade ago. I changed in a point of personal pique. Anyone interest in that back story, we can chat over a drink....or coffee. AOL does not permit auto forwarding of mail so all I could do is post an away message with instructions to resend to a different email ...

Today represents for many one of those much watch TV days. Some for the pomp and circumstances. Others for the commercials. A few for the gala at half-time. And most for the main event, the Superbowl. I’ll watch. At time of this drafting, not exactly sure where (I can post in the comments for any who really ought to know.). My interest since my team seems to achieve excellence in avoiding participation for 50 years involves some charitable fundraising around the game.   My f...

As I started day seven of the just ended week, it was solely about the number of decades – seven– someone just surpassed.   (At one point this morning I thought it might also be the number of full court games my team won; it just turned out to be the number of games my friend Shawn and I played (We did take five of seven; we hit foul shots to get into game six, won it and almost took game seven.).)   But this is really about a friend named Leonard – we fondly call him Lenny –...
It was not planned but friends we enjoyed last night’s concert – really more a show – with suggested a blog on little known rock trivia. The really obscure one involved a guitar player and one-half of a songwriting team in one of the long-lasting bands of all time who sang in a children’s choir at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth. The story teller was one-half of a hit duo who went on to manage and produce a number of artists including James Taylor and Linda Ronstadt. The sh...

She made sure her husband enjoys a nice space (one might say two). But this commentary leaves any more discussion of my “offices” for another time; definitely not here. Thursday afternoon Shelly texts me she expects a delivery.   I did not give much thought to what it might be but mused it might relate to her new space in our home.   You see the space formerly know as Jonathan’s room experienced a conversion. Gone for a number of years: our eldest child. More recently, at Sh...
Best wishes in this first weekend of the new year. Many recent Gotham blogs looked ahead and share resolutions and predictions for this year. Instead, I continue practice to share a list compiled and commentary posted to my website on the top ten shows I attended in the year just ended. Hope you find the list -- 1) John Fogerty and ZZ Top 2) The Richie Furay Band performs POCO DeLIVErin’ 3) Jeff Beck, Paul Rodgers, Ann Wilson 4) Glenn Tilbrook 5) The Eagles 6) Ro...

Music matters to me. (I suspect you know that.)   Ahead of this new year, I offer an updated (and of course verified) “Songs To Ring In The New Year.”     It follows “Light It Up,” my blog four weeks ago, which shared my updated seasonal playlist, Happy Holidays in songs. I hope folks enjoyed this musical cheer throughout the holiday season and that includes celebrations that continue into the new year (think the alternative name of my fave diner).   As wering in the new year...

Not a big brother story like Fred blogged but aerie, but in a nice way.   Oh and it involves a brother, too.   And Fred makes an appearance at that!   On Thursday, my brother, Robby, emailed, “My girlfriend Jen picked me up to get my car from the mechanic. She told me she had a freaky story. She wanted to listen to Dylan songs, but not sung by Dylan. She looked in Apple music, and the top playlist was by.... YOU! We wondered: are you number 1, or is this another example of “...

Though a special netflix program goes "live" today, this blog despite the title, involves that artist not at all. You see this weekend centers around my daughter and a milestone for her. She’s home a week ahead of that and already gathered in family and added some miles to her mom vehicle re-connecting with friends nearby and regional. She made a social media post about this some nice things head in this milestone year (I suspect more on this in ensuing months.).  Even thoug...
