  There are very few things that get me more riled up than wasting someone’s time, including my own.     Have you had the experience yet of going down to your DMV to get a new Enhanced Drivers License? Well, if not, I suggest some deep breathings exercise, a little meditation, or perhaps a bottle of wine before you go.     I did not have any of those things, but I did have my research skills. Those are well honed after all of these years practicing law.     So, I resear...

  Well, I think I do.     At this time of year I am reminded of what I always credit as my first memory.     I can’t say for sure that it was actually November 22, 1963 but at some point within the few days that followed, I was sitting on my dad’s lap in his recliner in our den. We were watching a news report of President Kennedy’s death. I don’t remember any words, but I distinctly remember my dad pulling me just a little closer and his feeling of great sadness.     C...

  Perhaps it’s the end of an era.     One of my local regular lunch haunts had a big sign in the window last week. “Effective 11/11, we will no longer accept cash.”     I must admit that I usually use a credit card to buy lunch. But I wondered what it would mean if I just wanted to stop in for a cup of coffee. Credit card too? What if someone comes in without a credit card? Will the restaurant really turning away the sale?     I guess I don’t have to carry my mad money ...

  Used to be that I would look forward to alone time in the car to crank up the radio and sing at the top of my lungs.     But, I’ve noticed lately that my radio habits have completely changed. Instead of looking for some old Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen or yes, even Barry Manilow, I don’t even reach for the power button to turn the radio on.     I find the quiet calming, particularly driving to the station in the morning as I am contemplating my day.     Just my own o...

  Well, maybe not really breaking news.     I cannot take credit for this thought but I have to say it stuck with me. A Sunday morning news commentator posited the following observation which resonated with me.     Do you remember the feeling that came along with that ominous, but extraordinarily rare, announcement of “Breaking News”? I do. It was that feeling that said stand up and pay attention because something big had just happened; something out of the ordinary, some...

  In this ongoing playoff season, I started to think about my own baseball memories. Growing up, my grandfather was the biggest baseball fan around me. When you think of favorite people in your life, he ranks very high.     He was a huge Mets fan. Whenever a game was on, you could find him planted in front of the television cheering on his team. Actually, cheering is one way to put it – loud coaching is another – yelling at the screen might be yet another. He definitely had...

  This past weekend, I experienced a first. My first Big 10 Football game.   We were visiting my son for family weekend (how could that have happened already?) and the Maryland campus was ready for football.     We walked by many a tailgate tent on our way up to the stadium. OK, I admit to never having seen a tailgate before and the tents were interesting. We had read earlier about the security requirements at the stadium so we were prepared with our clear plastic 12” x 6” ...

  Do you have cash in your wallet? I’m not asking how much just whether there is anything green in there. I’m pretty sure the answer is generational.     I always have cash in my wallet, together with some emergency money stashed somewhere for well, an emergency.     However, with the advent of Paypal and Venmo and mobile banking of all sorts, is there really a need for cash anymore?     I know that my children and their friends hardly ever carry cash.     How abou...
