Hovercraft have been around for decades but they've always looked like they were bathtubs or those small kiddie pools with a big fan.   Well, here comes Mercier-Jones from Chicago with a really cool looking vehicle. This will give new meaning to "blowing into town." Imagine jumping in, whirring it up and floating down the highway. Now I won't have to replace my tires every 45,000 miles although parking could be a bit trying. Unless...you could float down into a spot.   The on...

A name you probably never heard of but I'm betting you will during next years basketball season. No this is not another sports blog but one of inspiration. To really understand what I'm writing about, please watch this video first...it's amazing. (it's only 1 minute)   Zach Hodskins   He was born without a left hand and forearm and this 6' 4" young man plays better than guys with two hands. He's a smart passer, has a great shot, and a handles the ball with moves I would never...

In a recent study more than half of the population (62%) shop online at least once a month. The most common items we buy are electronics, books, clothing, household goods and office supplies.   Retail sales in brick and mortar stores are up by only a small percentage but shopping online is growing at 10-15%.   I enjoy buying online. It's so easy and if the company has taken the necessary steps, very secure. I've bought books, clothing and the occasional piece of computer equi...

After stuffing myself with fried turkey, brisket, potato latkes, stuffing and brussel slaw, I wondered how many other people enjoy the same. So...I went on a Thanksgiving fact finding tour and found the following morsels for you to digest.   Americans eat 736 milllion pounds of turkey every Thanksgiving That's roughly 16 lbs per person (I definitely ate more than that :) 88% of us eat turkey on this day We spend over 2.4 billion dollars on the Thanksgiving dinners Over 250 mi...

This morning the Salvation Army is sending over a truck to pick up some office furniture that's in my garage. That's the technical description of what's happening. The real story is the desk I sat at for over 20 years, the flat files I used for artwork that was lovingly made for clients and the files cabinets that housed the history of the Tobol Group are being given away. I'm sad because this represents many years of my life.   Although I am still doing what I enjoy and have...

I'm excited. Today is the first ever Gotham Oratorical contest and I'm one of the judges. Fred wrote about it in his blog on 10.18.13 If you're not familiar with the term, it's the art and skill of public speaking. Something I love to do :)   This contest is for High School students only and even more impressive is that Nancy's daughter Jackee created and is adminstrating it.   Now judging, in my opinion, is an art form even though there will be criteria we need to abide by. ...

Did you know that right now, to be licensed as a Farm Brewery, any beer brewed in the State of New York must have 20% of its ingredients (besides water) grown right here? Apparently the current acreage devoted to growing the ingredients for beer cannot support the need. And...that the number of breweries being built in the NYC area alone are expected to double in the next year or two. Anyone want to start growing hops?   I learned this fascinating information plus much mu...

Sometimes sleep comes easy and sometimes not. This night I'm up writing this blog and it's in the wee hours of the AM. My mind keep running...clients...projects...relationships...   It's tough to shut off. I turn the TV on and hope that watching the machines that make pencils put me to sleep. The experts say that no matter what time you go to sleep you should wake up at the same time every day otherwise your circadian rythm gets messed up. I certainly wouldn't want that. Who ...

A wierd thing happens to me sometimes and by the chatter on social media I'm not alone. I'll be sitting at my desk, or in my car and I will feel a buzz that my phone is letting me know something is happening. I reach to look to see what it is and there's nothing. No text, no appointment reminder...nothing.   This doesn't happen all the time but enough for me to feel a bit strange. So I investigated and found that there are several names for this effect, “phantom ringing,” “p...

Here's some news you may like to hear...NASA will pay you $160 a day to lay in bed. I'm not kidding.   NASA is seeking volunteers for Spaceflight Simulation Studies by using long-term bed rest to simulate the effects of weghtlessness on the human body. It seems they are getting ready to send astronauts back into space...or maybe pillownauts.   If you are forutnate to be chosen (you must be a nonsmoker, age 25 to 55 and in good health), you'll stay in a NASA research facility...
