Scouting
Posted By : Rona Gura

I read Fred's blog on Friday and thought about an article I recently read about famous people who were Scouts. The list included Lucille Ball, Debbie Reynolds, her daughter Carrie Fischer, Barbara Walters, Reese Witherspoon, Condoleezza Rice (as well as every other female Secretary of State), Blythe Danner, her daughter Gwyneth Paltrow, Taylor Swif

Planning
Posted By : Rona Gura

It’s January 8th  as I write this. I am putting away some of the generous holiday gifts I received. Included in those gifts are two planners/journals.  They are very pretty and  beautifully crafted. The question is, for me, whether I will use them.   One of the attorneys in my office still uses a paper diary (a red book). Given the ease of electron

Going Paperless
Posted By : Rona Gura

I have been trying to move to an almost paperless office for a while now. Prior to Covid, all of my court filings, were on paper. Covid changed that. Now all of my court filings are electronic. It has made the switch-over to a paperless file a lot easier.    I personally have two problems with becoming completely paperless. It has been a struggle f

Look Out, Here It Comes
Posted By : Rona Gura

I am extremely lucky to have a very close “office family,” which includes Gotham adoption attorney extraordinaire Faith Getz Rousso. We genuinely all enjoy one another’s company, help one another,  and look out for one another.   We do have a prankster in our midst. While I was a way on vacation in October an elaborate prank was concocted against m

In Search of A Podcast I Can Commit To
Posted By : Rona Gura

If you could see my current Instagram feed, you would see a plethora of ads for podcasts. I started investigating podcasts a few weeks ago and now I’m inundated with ads.    To me, podcasts seem analogous to radio broadcasts. You look for a topic you find interesting and see whether the podcasts captures your attention. I have also seen choosing a

The First Time
Posted By : Rona Gura

Recently I was asked to provide my high school yearbook to be scanned for a preservation project. The request brought me back to a very painful memory. One, I do not believe I truly processed as an adult.  I immediately thought of something that had been written in my yearbook. Someone else had written it but, yet, I was embarrassed and ashamed. An

Unmasking
Posted By : Rona Gura

How long do you think we will continue wearing face masks? Even though I am vaccinated, and boosted, I began wearing masks again in public places after the Delta variant surge. My daughter contacted Covid then which made me put the mask back on. Additionally, at the same time, a client contacted two days after she was in my office, when neither of

I've Been Influenced
Posted By : Rona Gura

We had the conversation several months ago over lunch.  Some of the women in the office mentioned how much they love their cashmere sweaters. I had responded that I never owned a cashmere sweater, essentially because I felt they were generally very expensive.   I did not notice it initially but soon thereafter I noticed an ad popping up on my Insta

Journaling
Posted By : Rona Gura

I’ve been playing around with the thought for several years. Last week I finally committed to it. I bought a journal. I bought it at Weight Watchers so, a part of the reason for the journal is for me to record and  review my eating and wellness habits. Which I did this past week and noticed some interesting habits.    But this journal has a lot mor

Is It Real News?
Posted By : Rona Gura

A friend and I had a bit of a debate this week. She had her view on a certain issue and I had mine. To support my view, I emailed her a news article I had found. She did the same. We had two different viewpoints on the same issue, but each was apparently supported by two different news articles.  The websites where we each found the articles were v

My New Socks
Posted By : Rona Gura

  As I have admitted in numerous blogs, I enjoy shopping for clothing, handbags and shoes. One item of clothing I never felt it necessary to spend an excessive amount of money on was socks. Generally, I buy my socks in three packs from Costco. I usually buy the most inexpensive socks that they carry in my size. That recently changed.   My husband a

Leaving On A Jet Plane
Posted By : Rona Gura

Have you been on an airplane since March 2020? We flew to Florida over Labor Day weekend. Beside my usual flying anxiety (which has been discussed in many other blogs), I was additionally apprehensive due to all the news articles concerning unruly passengers and those that refused to wear masks. Our experience on both flights, however, was pleasant

Letting Go
Posted By : Rona Gura

My husband and I became grandparents over the summer. As my fellow grandparents can attest to, becoming a grandparent is a real lesson in how much you can truly love another human being. But we have also learned it is a real lesson in letting go.      As parents it is difficult not to espouse, or should I say dictate, our opinions to our children a

Living in The Moment
Posted By : Rona Gura

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 t

It's Nap Time
Posted By : Rona Gura

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
