Today I find myself in the beautiful woods of North Carolina where I'm visiting my cousin/brother and his lovely wife in their 1.75 acre estate.   The BBQ last night was filled laughs, wine, steak, chicken and sausage (of course I cooked:). I finally met my cousin's grandsons Jack and Max. 5 and 2. I forgot how much energy little kids can have. If we could only bottle the energy from these children and store it, we could power the world. Let's call Elon Musk......

My dry cleaner is open till 7p. I get there at 6:45...half of the lights are out but the door is open. No worries...at least I think so.   I walk in and the owner comes up front and says we are closed. I tell her the sign says 7P and point to the door which, BTW, says 7p. She points to a small statement in red letters about the white times that states "Open till sundown."   Really? That means that she will close earlier and earlier till the winter soltice (which is December ...

I teach entrepreneurship at Hofstra in the evenings and just started another class last week. Each class is filled with a variety of individuals from diverse backgrounds from matriculated students to single working Moms. As I start every semester, every student stands and describes their business idea and what they would like to get out of the class.   While listening to each person's dream, I am always inspired. Most individuals in the class have worked a full day, taken ca...

About 15 years ago I started eliminating gluten and dairy from my diet. It was mighty difficult considering my affection for cheese and fresh, warm bread plus the total lack of products available. Today, there is no shortage of Gluten or dairy free products. Where I used to search high and low for a loaf of gluten free bread, there's no less than 5 different brands in the stores I shop. Same with dairy...now there are 46 different kinds of dairy free yogurt on the shelves at...

Last night I was reflecting on my first memory. I belive it was the following...   I must have been 4 or 5 and my family and I were living in Bayside in a connected one story apartment around a communal square. The apartments were made of red brick and each had a very small area in front of it for a garden which my Mother used.   What I remembered is that it was a cold snowy day and I was dying to get outside and play. My Mother dressed me with as much clothing as she could p...

There isn't a day goes by now that I don't get spam calls on my cell phone.    I must receive about 5-10 calls a day. And they are very smart because the calls look like they come from local towns around me. It's gotten to the point where I don't answer calls if the phone number is not in my contact list.   I even have my number on the Do Not Call list with the government. I'm beginning to think it's the DO Call list....

A new coffee shop opened in my town around the corner from my house. Frankly it surprised me given that Starbucks is right down the road.   The store sells specialty coffee from around the word as well as artisan chocolate. The owner, Terry, is really into it. When asked, he'll explain where the different coffee comes from and what it will taste like. I enjoy the coffee and especially the friendly repertoire.   For reasons I can't explain, I decided to help him by providing s...

Have you ever done something nice for someone you didn't know? Like holding the door open. Allowing someone to get in front of you at Starbucks (that may be the hard for some of you:) Or even letting someone in your lane ahead of you while you're driving (that's hard for me!)   Small acts of kindness can go a long way. It also can signal what type of person you are being kind to. Like when you hold the door open and the person walking through it doesn't acknowledge what you'v...

The Amazon forest, which produces about 20% of earth's oxygen, and is often referred to as "the planet's lungs" is ablaze.  There's been an 80% increase in deforestation so far this year compared to last year. Scientists have recorded more than 74,000 fires in Brazil this year. That's nearly double 2018's total of about 40,000 fires. In total, the blazes have created a layer of smoke estimated to be 1.2 million square miles wide. You can even see it from space.   On Monday, ...

Are you a runner? Happen to have any old running shoes in your closet? If so, you may be interested in Dave Russell's story. He just got $50,000 for these "funky, old shoes" that happened to be a pair of extremely rare prototype Nike running shoes from 1972 (only 10 were given out).   Dave said, "They were very exotic because the sole was completely different. It was made on a waffle iron. It was glued to the bottom of the shoe."   He said the shoes spent years in a box in h...
