Shelly left the gym early the other day since once nearby user constantly removed his mask during workouts; of course she complained but the “hall monitors” never seemed to police that location inside. As we dine I shared my experience at the Roosevelt Field Mall Friday afternoon. I visited the Apple Store their by appointment for service on my iPhone (It needed a battery replacement, and I found the repair cost-effective.). It was my first time, post COVID visiting that mall...

Marisa often arranges and participates in meetings with public officials and their staffs who I know and interact with. Jonathan researches and writes studies in the public health sphere, and his latest effort inspired today’s blog: Jonathan is lead author on a study that got published last week in Lancet Global Health.   Early Wednesday...
During this time where we read of folks infected and worse by the Coronavirus COVID-19 and wish and seek healing, I offer a collection of tunes to promote a healthy feeling.  I titled it, "Doin' Fine," after my fave Savoy Brown tune, also included in this set.   I enjoyed creating a few playlists this year shared in some prior blogs; indeed I enjoyed almost the entire Song for the Road playlist blogged on last week during a recent road trip and two shorter "runs" in between. ...

This year Earth Day passed without a Gotham Green Awards® advancing it. Even though I was visiting mom in Florida (while Shelly and Marisa visited Paris), Earth Day 2019 did not pass without a constructive message I could release, tweet and post to Facebook and LinkedIn. It just involved bus public transit. Gotham Green® this year held its awards program on May Day, joint with Gotham Construction.   Gotham Green® annually recognizes those who make a difference in our communi...

Friday evening I received a text from my daughter. She advising taking a DNA report. It involved nothing about confirmation of me as her biological dad. No need to go any further on that thread.   The DNA report she shared advised my daughter’s “genetic muscle composition is common in elite power athletes."  I muse back, “It makes me want to get one.” I added, “Wow.” She replied, “Do it!!!”   I suspect Marisa’s interest in DNA emanates from her interest in family genealo...

GREEN RIVER   This blog may tease some. It notes a special announcement that I get to make. Actually many. But in honor of some of the great leakers of news of the current White House, many anonymously memorialized in a book that shot to the top of the charts as this weekend began, no names.
