  I’m on a tear with my friend’s children getting married. I have had the pleasure of dancing at the weddings of some of my closest friend’s children over the last year or two. To be honest, it’s a little surreal. I just don’t feel old enough. This past weekend, I attended a bridal shower for the daughter of one of my closest friends. It was beautiful, warm and loving. It was also a little surreal for me. I have been close friends with the bride’s mother since our early d...

  I was giving a presentation recently about my favorite topic, networking. And the following question was posed to the group – what is the best piece of advice you would give your younger self about networking? In other words, if I knew then what I know now . . . That question always gets me thinking. Truth be told, I admit to being completely unschooled and untooled about this thing called networking. I’ve learned along the way by picking up tips from others who do it so...

  Bill just had his high school reunion. I won’t disclose which one – that’s up to him. But I will say that he was really looking forward to it. For weeks, he studied his high school yearbook, connected with friends on Facebook, and strolled down memory lane. It was fun to watch. And it was a fun night too. Lots of reminiscing and connecting. I truly don’t remember my high school class having a reunion although Facebook has been great for me to connect with some hig...

  One of my favorite observances during the holidays is a ceremony called Tashlich, the ceremonial casting of the sins. For this ceremony, we gather together at a body of water to throw away our sins of the past year and make some commitments for the new year. Part of the tradition is to throw old bread in the water. The type of bread you choose to throw has its own significance. For example, for complex sins we throw multi gran bread; for tasteless sins – rice cakes; for ...

  September always lights up with the excitement of going back to school. Although I haven’t actually gone back to school in many (many) years, that feeling is reminiscent of such good things. Now this time of year makes me feel like everyone is ready to get back to good networking. Summertime is fun but slower than the rest of the year. I say that in a good way – down time is important. But now that the fall is here, it’s time to get our connecting re-energized but thi...

  Up and down the east coast and could go on for days. Having lived through Sandy in 2012, warnings and watches get my attention in a way they didn’t before. It’s not that I was ever cavalier about being in the path of bad weather, but it’s different now. And frankly, compared to so many others, I was one of the lucky ones in 2012. We have family and friends up and down the east coast. I’m sure you do too. I have already reached out to everyone I know to offer them a s...

  It was quiet as a breeze last Tuesday. For over 10 years I have been writing a blog on Monday night and posting it for Tuesday’s publication. You know, I’m Tuesday’s Gotham blogger. But last Monday was a little bit crazy. We had just returned from moving my oldest into her new apartment in Ann Arbor and we were getting ready to move my youngest back to college. Monday night blog writing literally just escaped me. I know some of you noticed and that some worried whe...

  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 ...
