As this weekend began, we just returned from visiting mom in Florida. The visit includes helping mom some and catching up with friends who relocated there and/ or have places there.  I also enjoy checking out their living spaces and musing about what we might consider if we took the full or partial-time plunge.  I certainly enjoy the outdoor pool and Shelly enjoys the gym in the clubhouse across the road. Yet here as I draft this, I find comfort in the place my daughter name...

Saturdays – at least the mornings – are one of my hoops day; that's basketball for those who need more clarity. I enjoy it; it's intergenerational (even more so in the summer but that'll merit its own blog...maybe).   Some players have nicknames – Israeli Mike, Big Dave, Big Steve, Rug; some get called by last names – Stein, Blitz, Gluck, Cody; there are brothers, Lenny and Dave (who may be our oldest player); there are father and sons Eric and Bennie and Zach, and Lee and S...

So many topics to consider. One who probably knows best suggested I cover a fave topic – music – and the current president's taste. Driving to basketball (and after we played friends there thought I should blog on our 4 v 4 full court games) this morning Adam LaRoche dominated the sportstalk radio airwaves; and as well when we left the gym and I turned on the radio again. We may not know the whole truth but a player who had some success and mucho against my fave team, lef...

A need for secrecy absolutely barred this subject for blogging last week. A day before my daughter would travel home, Marisa shared an email with her mom and dad, brother and a cousin.  She admonished us not to post on Facebook about her impending plans or presence upon arrival. Marisa kept secret her plans to attend a bridal shower on the date of my preceding blog.  I dared not risk blowing her cover by sharing how happy her mom and I felt to welcome home our daughter for ...

Those who know me most know the thing I HATE (emphasis added) most probably involves asking others for money, to donate, to contribute, to take a journal ad.  When I first started out, Tony Menna, who I met in Mario Cuomo's campaign for Mayor, who induced me to joined my first and second political clubs and later became my local political leader, shared with me how he would often attend other political functions – club fundraisers and the like, in return for folks supporting ...

We – or at least many in our tribe – tout Gotham as a “social business network.” I like nothing more when after a Gotham meeting concludes, group members, circuit riders and guests hang out, exchange cards, get to know each other better and explore business synergies. That happened after the February 18 Gotham Green meeting. It just seemed everyone beelined for someone at the meeting.  I am sure Fred kwelled after receiving reports or seeing the pics on Fredslist.   My fr...

Marisa came home from L.A. to attend her cousin Tara's wedding. Tara was the flower girl when Shelly and I married. When Marisa took flight to CA, she left her softball equipment home. She pitched, caught, played every infield position.   Initially I played her where I lacked someone to do the job. When the girls began to pitch, we found my daughter framed the plate well and we developed her as a catcher; she threw out her share of baserunners. Sometimes, I still played...
