Happy Birthday to The Sopranos
Posted By : Rona Gura

  Spoiler Alert-If you are one of the very few people who do not know how "The Sopranos" ended, and you do not want to know, do not read this blog.   I cannot believe that it has been twenty years since “The Sopranos” first aired. I admittedly only watched the first episode because my Mother told me to. One of the producers of The Sopranos-Brad G

Binging Game of Thrones
Posted By : Rona Gura

My husband and I did not watch Game of Thrones when it began airing. For years my daughter has been telling my husband and I that we were really missing out, that we would love it. After my other daughter got married her husband joined in, also telling us that we would love it.   As the years went by, we were tempted to start watching it, but the t

It Happens Every Four Years

  World Cup fever. Did you have it? Our home did. And anticipating Sunday’s 11:00 a.m. final I bought all of the ingredients for a huge breakfast so we could enjoy the final game over a family breakfast.     It has always amazed me how the rest of the world is transfixed and emotionally connected to soccer (football). The scenes of highly emoti

Surprise!!!!
Posted By : Rona Gura

Today, I am all about surprises. Yesterday, my husband and I threw our eldest daughter a surprise bridal shower and, even though there were slip-ups, i.e. text messages not meant for her sent in a group family text, I think we pulled it off. She had a fabulous day and she seemed, genuinely, surprised.   For me, planning the party was more fun than

Circus Memories
Posted By : Rona Gura

I am unsure whether what I am about to write is currently politically correct but I was very saddened to read about the closing of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. I have very vivid happy memories of going to the circus with my parents and then with my own children.   As a child I loved the clowns. But one of my most enduring memories

The Hang-Over
Posted By : Rona Gura

Today I am thinking about hang-overs. Probably because I have one. We spent Saturday night at my sister-in-law’s fiftieth birthday party at Dockers in Quogue. It was a fabulous time but, as I am writing this on Sunday morning, I am feeling the pain now.  I have a very low tolerance for alcohol; one glass on an empty stomach and I am in pain the nex

A Perfect Moment
Posted By : Rona Gura

It happened on Saturday. We were on our friend’s boat watching The Blue Angel’s airshow. The sky was clear blue and the weather on the water was incredible. There was the subtlest breeze so it wasn’t too hot or too cold. And the airshow was astounding. Surrounded by family and friends I couldn’t help but look around and think, “What a perfect mome

The Doves Are Crying
Posted By : Rona Gura

With the untimely passing of Prince this week, many musicians have been interviewed as to how  he influenced their career and music. What I find most impressive, however, are the numerous lay people who are speaking out about how his lyrics and music impacted them.   During my senior year of high school, my parents were pressuring me to attend coll

Guilty Until Proven Innocent
Posted By : Rona Gura

  I know the whole Tom Brady/Deflategate controversy is fundamentally over, but I am still curious as to what people thought about it. Essentially, Tom Brady was reinstated only because the Judge found that the NFL did not follow the procedure required by the collective bargaining agreement. No decision was made by the Federal Court as to the facts

Did Godaddy Go Too Far?
Posted By : Rona Gura

As anyone who has read my blogs know, I do not watch the Super Bowl for the game. It’s all about the commercials for me. And I become especially interested when there’s controversy regarding a commercial. This year has not been a disappointment. Godaddy.com pulled a controversial commercial before it even aired during the Super Bowl.   The ad

What Ya Doing?
Posted By : Rona Gura

Every year, on Labor Day, I labor to write a meaningful blog (pun intended). I am always cognizant, and hopeful, that my Gotham family is out enjoying the last days of summer. Therefore, if you choose to spend some of that precious time reading my blog, I have wanted to make it worth your time. This year I am spending my Labor Day preparing f

Taking Care of Business
Posted By : Rona Gura

While I was contemplating posting the lyrics to "Monday, Monday,"  I thought the following would be more fun.  The first concert I went to was BTO when I was in tenth grade. And while I thought these lyrics were fun then, they mean something entirely different to me thirty-five years later: You get up every morning From your 'larm clock's warning T

My Gift to Myself
Posted By : Rona Gura

Last Saturday morning almost all of my family was out of the house by 8:00 a.m. Other than myself, the only other person left in the house was my sleeping daughter. I was essentially alone and had the whole house to myself. There was so much I could have gotten accomplished during that time. I could have answered emails, walked on the treadmill, cl

Soccer Fever
Posted By : Rona Gura

Do you have it? We do in our house. Of course, we had soccer fever even before this year’s World Cup, as both my step-daughter and step-son are soccer players. Watching the U.S. play on the world stage has, so far, been incredible. Watching the U.S. finally beat Ghana, as a result of a goal scored by a sub was amazing. Even Google has soccer

A Lesson in Sportsmanship
Posted By : Rona Gura

As I have written many times in many many blogs, I am not a sports fan. So, no one was more surprised than me when, I suggested that we change the time we were meeting friends for dinner Saturday night so that we could watch The Belmont Stakes before we left for dinner. I do not think I have ever voluntarily watched a horse race before. But there I
