Just concluded a week of exploration. Sort of. Marisa and Shelly explored Paris. The dad and husband visited mom in Florida. So while my daughter and wife took in The Louvre, The Musée d’Orsay, Eifel Tower and Versailles and its adjoining villas and getaway spots, between various appointments for mom, I found some time to explore where friends made their home away from home.   And checking out homes as more friends re-settle or opt to “winter” around South Florida in or proxi...

Knowing a few folks often becomes a calling card in doing business. The proverbial “large” rolodex (Anyone still use one – I once had two!) became a resource often helpful in developing business prospects, securing introductions, accessing experts and more.   At a recent non-profit board meeting, several matters came up. A board member I had recruited shared some expertise on at the outset of the discussion. On the spot I knew I could reach out to other professional who I co...
With Spring comes a number of “flings” – that means fundraisers. Many adopt causes. Some causes adopt others. Some come from relationships and involvements. Certainly explains mine.   I chair the Board of Directors on Services Now for Adult Persons (“SNAP” before the acronym had other worthy uses!). The Board’s biggest concern involves the completion of a new center to house several of our programs and offices, including a senior center serving four communities where I spent...
When March arrives I anticipate and look forward to Spring. I think more about Baseball with opening day at the end of the month of late. Some other things of note occur on the Sports side. March Madness means College Hoops and pools for many. Football Free Agency starts in less than two weeks on March 14 (the draft about six weeks later, April 25-27). Yet as a bit of snow yesterday demonstrated, it forecasts no real relief on the weather side. But for me still the small roun...

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 ...

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...

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...

The Noreaster caused some concern here going into this weekend. I looked forward to the disposition of many cans of paint that accumulated over several years in the shed, and various closets in my home. Ditto for the remnants of electronic – three laptops and a few external keyboard represented all that remained after taking advantage of various electronic recycling opportunities in Queens. I wondered whether the weather would cancel the Queens Safe Disposal Event at Cunningh...

After basketball I chatted with Joe who plays (well but) intermittently of late about Shelly’s plans for me. He teased – perhaps he meant it – that I’d be spending hours putting together a chaise she purchased and arrived earlier this week – in three boxes. Yesterday morning before ball, Shelly started to open the boxes. I joined in. I suggested spreading a blanket over the wood floor in what once Jonathan enjoyed as his room. We took all the components apart, out of the boxe...

So much experienced last week. Some truly tragic involving loss.  Revelations about hurt inflicted on others. Developments (ongoing) on the government side (not just in D.C.). A very successful function supporting a great program including its two centers serving seniors (where I serve as board chair). A great concert and an anniversay both of which I had blogged about in advance.   This morning I reserve for Number Five (5). A great Met; probably their greatest position play...
