  The political issues involved in this topic aside, I am unsure about how I feel about Uber as a service. For the longest time I rebelled against Uber. I went to law school in New York City and always prided myself in my ability to easily hail a cab. While I also use subways often, yellow cabs were always my “go to” for short trips in the city.     When my children and friends started using Uber, I was resistant, remaining loyal to my yellow cabs. Recently, on a trip to La...

  My son recently broke up with his longtime girlfriend. I have been talking to him endlessly to help him through the process of healing from the hurt. In doing so, I have realized that it is much more difficult for the kids of today to break that connection and begin to move forward.     When I was young, when a relationship ended, you just stopped calling the other person or seeing one another. And, once you did so, you could begin moving on. Today, young people not only...

  As some of you may know, my daughter had been in the hospital for several weeks. She’s a soccer goalkeeper and broke her femur while playing (yes, she made the save). Her injury entailed extensive surgery plus numerous weeks of rehabilitation.     Early one evening, I arrived at the hospital, tired, stressed, and sad. As I pulled into the parking lot, I noticed a small group of medical professionals had gathered in the lot. Thinking there was a medical emergency in the lo...

Admittedly, I am writing this blog on Saturday afternoon, but I have only one thought running through my head. And I can’t seem to think about, or write, about any other topic today. My preoccupation is what will the final season of Game of Thrones bring? I don’t recall being so eager to watch the final season of any other television series than that of Game of Thrones.   Will you be watching? What are your thoughts now that winter is here?     ...

I have recently noticed that I am using keys less and less. I recently leased a new GMC Terrain and, for the first time, I have a keyless car. It has me a bit unnerved because I am afraid that, one day, I will leave the key fob in the car and lock myself out. Or keep the keyfob in my pocketbook and forget to lock the car when I leave. Additionally, my husband has installed “smart” technology in our house. For the past several months my husband and our kids have used an App ...

We are living in an era of influencers. Apparently, Kim Kardashian gets paid an extraordinary amount of money for having her picture taken with a product. I have noticed that other celebrities will do the same on Instagram. They will post either a picture or a video using a certain product and, clearly, endorse the same. I guess it’s the social media version of a commercial.   So, I was intrigued when a friend told me that she was going to try to become an influencer. She ha...

I have been somewhat intrigued with the latest scandal that’s been in the news, Operation Varsity Blues. The parents of some of the nation’s wealthiest and most privileged students sought to buy spots for their children at top universities by cheating on entrance exams or faking athletic credentials. This scandal brings up so many issues that warrant discussion. What I find very intriguing, however, is the issue of parenting style. Julia Roberts was quoted as saying, that ...

As I write this blog I am, once again, filled with incredible sadness over a senseless act of mass violence, this time in New Zealand. I am also struck by the political posturing that is already taking place on both sides of the aisle, with respect to issues such as gun control, restraints on rhetoric, and regulations on the use of social media.   Anyone who knows me well, knows where I stand politically as to these issues. So, this blog is not about politics. When I think a...

I was on the phone, with my sister-in-law this week, discussing an issue I that was having with a colleague at work. I loved something she said to me and chose to share it in my blogspace. In response to one of my complaints she told me, “Perhaps you should tell that person that their head should be where their feet are.”   In other words, try to take a moment to appreciate where you are before worrying about what is going to happen next. Wise advice.   Is your head where y...

I am writing this blog on Saturday afternoon. I woke up early (for me) to get to my 8:00 a.m. Weight Watcher meeting. Then I went food shopping and did some personal errands. After that, I stopped by a friend's house who recently had hand surgery. I brought her some groceries, help tidy up her apartment, put away her laundry etc., all of the basic chores that she's having trouble doing.   I then went home and tidied up there. As I then sat down to write a blog, all I could th...
