I shared many times since I scored this Sunday blog "gig" (Some who covet one of the days might call it an ("honor.") how I look forward to blogging on days such as these; I get to post on the actual day.  No different here.  Keeping with tradition, I offer this wonderful song for this special day by current Poco bassist and vocalist Jack Sundrud. Last year we broke with the BBQ tradition to visit a landmark before it closed.   I look forward to a simple one this year.  Over...

A year ago, I boasted about what made this Sunday blog beat more special than any other day; that applies even if comments come by less often compared to some other days. When certain specials days occur with regularity on a Sunday, what’s not to complain. I certainly voice no objection that I can share a special Happy Mother’s Day wish to to all the special ladies, including the most special and Sweet mom in my life.   We celebrated Mother’s Day eve by taking in an interesti...

A good number of us gather with family this weekend. Some gathered today for Easter. Others including members of my family gathered Friday and Saturday eves for Passover. Usually we host one night and visit with family or friends (Appreciate the invites). Periodically, if find ourselves out of town, we participate in communal seders.   This year, we hosted both nights.   One night her family dad, sister, niece, her husband and their young daughter (who found the Afrikomen!);...
Interesting how time intersects.  So in last week’s blog, I released an updated Happy Holidays in song playist, which included a few extra Chanukah songs.  Some people provided links to some songs you’ll find next year (though I did informally add them pending placement within the flow of the existing list.).  In the week that followed last year’s blog releasing that year’s updated playlist, we attended a family Chanukah gathering hosted by my brother; I blogged about the mus...

One starts this eve, another in just a few days after three weeks pass; others also this month too (Mitch covered it some yesterday. And so to light up the days ahead and ring in the season I release an updated version (all links work at time of posting) of Happy Holidays in song   Happy Christmas – John Lennon   This Is Christmas – Luther Vandross   The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire) – Nat King Cole (music and lyrics by Mel Tormé and Bob Wells)   The Ch...
At Thanksgiving which we celebrated last Thursday, we express thanks for our family, friends and all good things. In two days we get a different chance to express our thanks. Indeed, many of our inboxes probably experienced receipt of email messages exhorting our participation in giving on Tuesday, christened  “Giving Tuesday,” Interestingly, in Gotham, we experience collectively the fruits of our own giving when our tribe’s “Season of Giving” concludes with the selection of ...
Since I took on this Sunday blog for Gotham Networking, this represents the first time I get to draft something on Veteran’s Day. It always falls on November 11. As we know from the news, today marks a century – 100 years – passed since the Armistice that officially brought an end to the First World War. Four years ago I participated in a ceremony at Central Park to rededicate a monument. The fraternal order Knights of Pythias installed the monument as part of “The 307th In...

After the fundraiser alluded to in a brief sidebar in in last week’s blog, Shelly posted a pic to Facebook with a caption, that included the phrase, “Chairman of the Board.”   So that weekend, no surprise she ordered this “Chair” a new chair for when I set up shop at the dining room table.   The new seat arrived during the week (Assembly required – another story which may or may not find its way into a blog or post.).   For those interested, this fundraiser mentioned abov...

Looking forward to some fireworks on Wednesday? After all we celebrate our nation’s independence and for many fireworks displays remain an attraction. Already enjoyed two nice displays at baseball stadiums in San Diego and Flushing, in April and a few weekends back respectively. Last night’s display, our third this year was the 5th time we combined fireworks with a concert at Town of Hempstead Park. It was leisurely. We arrived rather early; got a really good spot to the left...

Friday’s blogger recounted this past Friday how Sundays prove a “tough beat.” But one thing the other bloggers can never, ever do involves special days like today. The other bloggers can wish ahead (or behind) but never, ever, express gratitude to the moms – our moms – on this special day. Heck, last year on this day, I got to Thank Mom as she approached a special number (It also linked to three songs for the day.). Two year’s ago today, Sweet, included a nod to the most...
