  Over the past few days, amidst funeral plans, vigils and protests, we have seen the children, really young adults, of Parkland, Florida raise their voices.   They accuse the adults of having blood on their hands. With passion and strong articulate words, they speak of change they want to, better said demand to, see. They ask, can our politicians, our government leaders, look them in the eye and still not work together to find a fix to this ever-growing American tragedy?   ...

  I was reminiscing with a friend the other day about how much food played a part in our respective childhoods. So many of my memories circle back to something having to do with food. Whether it was a special restaurant or a special recipe, the food theme was prevalent.     For example, anyone remember Cooky’s Steak Pub? It was a favorite evening out in our family, always with my grandparents. The shrimp on the salad bar were plentiful but the star of the evening was the ba...

Over the last few days, the stock market has taken a tumble. I have lost count of the number of commentators advising investors not to panic, to stay the course, think long term. But I’ve also heard just ordinary people talking about being afraid of losing their savings. Last night on the LIRR, two commuters behind me were talking about changing their 401k investments, one was trying to convince the other not to make any dramatic changes. As for me, I am just ta...

  There is something about old friends that well, just doesn’t get old. I had dinner tonight with a friend I haven’t seen in a long time. Nothing wrong, just busy times of life for both of us.   But, when someone has been around in your life for that long, the conversation kind of just picks up where it left off.   I highly recommend reaching out to an old friend and getting together. It is kind of special. ...

  I had the experience the other evening of meeting someone new but having the gnawing feeling that we had met before. I was certain that we had never met, but something just felt too familiar. Maybe it was the tone of a voice, a look, I’m not sure.     When it all came clear to me, I realized that this new acquaintance was the spitting image of another attorney that I know. It was not him – I know, and knew, that I had never met this gentlemen before.     But there was t...

  Yesterday my son hit the send button for the last time. That is, he applied to the last college on his list. We had a little party.     Now we are in the waiting game as the schools make their decisions over the next few weeks and months. A nerve-wracking time but actually kind of freeing.     At this moment, as a high school senior he has done everything that he could possibly do – hard work, extracurriculars, recommendations, great essays, college visits, and on and o...

  I read an announcement yesterday that my gym decided to remove cable news from the viewing choices. The theory is that the news stations contain negative content, contrary to a healthy way of life. Those are not my words. Simply, I object. Cable news is often my draw at the gym. I switch back and forth between stations, taking in contrary interpretations of current events, but multi-tasking as I wind my way through my workout. It is good for burning calories. There is...

  I know it’s winter, but until recently it hadn’t really felt that way. I wasn’t even wearing my real winter coat.     But the last week or so in the Northeast has been brutal. So cold that the heating system in the house has to work extra hard to just take the chill out of the air. So cold that the heavy socks come out for sleeping. And so cold that you can see your breath almost as you are walking out the door.     I don’t enjoy this kind of bitter cold -- particular...

  You may recall that late last summer I blogged about an incident in our town. Our high school had been vandalized in the middle of the night. It was not just any night. It was a particular night when rising seniors at the high school party around the town getting ready to start their last year at the high school. This is not the proudest moment for our town. I would much rather be talking to you about the accomplishments of these seniors as they get within an inch of gradua...

  AIM went away this week. I admit to being among the last few using this old style means of communication. But, I really liked it. It was such a nice quick way of communicating.     We are exploring different alternatives (anyone have any opinions about SKYPE messaging?) but AIM was part of my work day for so many years, that I think I am having an adjustment issue.     I am sure whatever new program we settle on will amply replace that feeling of connectivity that I had...
