Cold beer on a parched throat    Plopping down at day’s end   A shaded beach nap   A cooling dip in water   A clever rejoinder   A thank you   The scent of a flower   A welcoming smile   Words of encouragement   A loving relationship   A creative moment   An unmasked breath of sweet fresh air!...

How often do people talk to us in code? They have an intention, but they try to cloud or cover it in rhetoric. A perfect example is the obnoxiously directing request “why don’t you?”   In superficial code this means “I want you to do the following, right now!” Well, I’m fed up. I’m no longer going to play along.  I’m either going to respond with an uncoded No, procrastinate, or just not do it. I’m just fed up! What do you think?...

The definition of mailing it in is to perform a given task, duty or activity with little or no attention, effort, or interest in actually doing something, ie, doing it in a perfunctory manner.    For example, a key player on the gridiron, the team star running back, “seems to be mailing it in this afternoon.” This is distinguished from a reporter excitedly calling in a news scoop to the Editor.    Don’t go through the motions: Deliver!  ...

I start this blog without any idea as to where it’s going or how it’s going to end... All I know is that I need to know what’s going on?  Thank you Marvin Gaye for your inspiration and timeless plaint! Maybe that’s all there is and it’s for you to answer!   What’s going on for you?...

When did takeout food morph into takeaway? To me just because we are suffering a pandemic it’s still takeout.  Is that what they call Old School? Am I not With It! Don’t we still just pull up and take It out of the store? Then there’s the question as to what It is. To me it’s food that we eat when I bring it home.  Then there’s the question as to where and what’s the best take out (or takeaway)? ...

I have made up a game which I play on Facebook.  I post interesting, but obscure, photographs of celebrities or sports figures and my Facebook friends guess as to identity.  If and when a person guesses correctly, I award a colorful Bingo! It’s participatory fun! Last week I posted a mid 20th century photograph of Norman Rockwell painting Marilyn Monroe and was shocked when it was banned by Facebook, as being against their “community standards.” The disputed picture is pos...

Are you aware that Gotham has a Hall of Fame? As pictured, it is on our website and peopled by the annual recipients of our Networker of Year and Red Bandanna Awards. This year, Hot Spot Queens Group members Brad Scherer, Dan Schwartz and Lourdes Villanueva Hartrick were our inductees. Take a look at our Hall of Fame on the website (click on About and then Hall of Fame). Such Gotham luminaries as Shelley Simpson, Robert Esposito (2019), Brett Deutsch, Laurel Scarr-Konel (201...

Hopefully everyone in the Tribe is familiar with our Season of Giving initiative. In case you’re not, it is a year long drive to fund Gotham Foundation grants which we will be announcing on December 16 at our virtual/Zoom Holiday Party. The number of grants and the amounts thereof have not yet been determined, but it is clear that the amount dispensed will be greater than last year. This is as a consequence of the generosity of those members who chose to donate their meal cos...

Saturday was surely one extraordinary day to remember for all time. What with the unseasonably warm weather and the ever building tension to declare a victor in the hotly contested presidential election race, we were poised for it. When the news came at around 11:30 am, it was like a dam broke and there was release, as people poured into the streets in jubilation for their winners. It was not planned.  It was spontaneous.   It was fueled by the confluence of the unseasonably...
