  Imagine this. You are out for dinner at a local restaurant. You are seated by the hostess and engaged in conversation. Suddenly you notice a box on the table. Odd. It says “Open Me Please” on the top. Inside the box there is a message – “Place your cell phone in here while you enjoy your meal so that you can.” We have all been there – those times when either your technology or your friend deserves a seat at the table. Nice to see at least one restaurant trying to c...

  I just finished a great book but that’s not the point of my blog. I read this book in so many different medium – on my phone, on my iPad, on my kindle. Even a little audiobook along the way. It made me think about the old days when a book had pages to turn that you could feel. I liked that. There is nothing like the sound of a book bending backwards to open for the first time. It’s kind of like the noise you make with your first coffee in the morning. Well, at least I ma...

  Last weekend we ventured for the first time this season to our local town beach. We are Town of Oyster Bay residents on Long Island and so ToBay is our beach choice when we feel the need to touch the ocean. And, we’re Long Islanders so that’s half the lure to being here. We hadn’t been to ToBay since last summer. Usually it’s a pretty long walk from the parking lot down to the beach. Admittedly, I’m usually complaining along the way. First there is a long walk through ...

  Coming home from dinner Saturday night, we were talking about our handheld electronics. I was reminiscing about the good old days when my blackberry was literally attached to my hip. I loved that device. I still don’t think anything replaces the old-style Blackberry for sending emails. True, it was somewhat of a one trick pony but an efficient, sleek, well laid out pony at that. I was curious about whether the company was still in business and so on my phone I went to...

  . . . just one piece of networking advice, what would it be? Do you ever think about that question? I do. We have all been doing this thing called networking for a while and in my opinion, its kind of personal. We all approach networking from our own perspectives and bring to the process our own special twist. But if you had to break it down to one piece of critical advice, what direction would you take? For me, I think it boils down to that question we ask at ever...

  I look forward to our golf outing every year. Anyone who knows me for any length of time has just burst out in a big thunderous belly laugh. For me to say I look forward to anything even tangentially sports related is a feat. Of course, our golf outing also comes with day long great food so maybe that explains it. (The chilled lobster tails and shrimp with never ending rounds of lamb chops were a great start to the cocktail party. Sorry, I couldn’t resist.) But seriou...

  Dads spend twice as much time now with their kids than they did in 1989 and triple the time they spent in 1965. I saw this statistic reported as Father’s Day was coming around last week. With all of the social and economic issues wrapped around these statistics, they made me think generally about their impact. Putting aside a discussion of the reasons why, this statistic says that today’s generation has the benefit of more active involvement of their fathers. In my es...

  It was one of those crazy commutes this morning. At every turn, something went wrong – and I had to be at a meeting at 10 am. I hate those pressure filled kind of mornings. First, my line on the LIRR was pretty much just down. [Did you know that I hate the LIRR? Are you my Facebook friend? If so, you would know for sure.] After fixing that fiasco, with a special thanks to my husband who drove me across the island to a different line, the subway was delayed too. I wa...

  About what I do. Yes, my job. I had coffee today with a networking contact. I hope you all meet her someday. She was talking about how sometimes after years of doing the same thing, people get bored and lose interest in what had once brought them joy and excitement. She made me think. When I started practicing years ago, quite honestly, I did not have a specific path in the law. My direction in employment law was accidental – but things happen for a reason. I have alway...

Based on my apparent blog themes, I think I must be missing my children. So, here is today’s story and it goes back to Passover. In my house we have had a Passover tradition for over 15 years. When we get to the part in the Seder where we talk about frogs, we sing a frog song from nursery school (yes, nursery school)– and then we pelt Eric with little plastic green frogs that each guest has been given. Actually, the frogs sit right on top of the Haggadah at each place sett...
