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

A New Insidious Scam
Posted By : Rona Gura

This past Saturday afternoon, my home telephone rang. When I looked at the caller id, it read that the call was from Mercy Hospital. Mercy is the name of a hospital in Rockville Center, about ten minutes away from where we live. Fearing that something had happened to my mother in law, who lives close by, I gave the telephone to my husband to answer

Piano Lessons
Posted By : Rona Gura

Nancy and I had an interesting conversation last week. She told me that she and her husband had decided to take piano lessons. When I asked “Why?” her response was, “Why not?”   Nancy then followed her response up with, “It was always something we wanted to do so we decided to just do it.” I thought about this for a few moments and confided in Nan

The Day After
Posted By : Rona Gura

It’s the Monday after and I’m feeling a bit sluggish. I have learned to try to avoid any meetings, court appearances etc. the Monday morning after the Super Bowl. I have the day after the Super Bowl noted in my work calendar so I can avoid scheduling anything significant, most notably court appearances.   Every year, prior to the Super Bowl, ther

Great Television
Posted By : Rona Gura

A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog about The Sopranos. Several weeks before that I had written another blog about binge watching Game of Thrones. In thinking about both blogs, I realized they had a common theme, great television.   There are a lot of shows I would call really good television, Cheers, The West Wing, Friends, and Seinfeld. But when tho

Reaching Our Goals
Posted By : Rona Gura

At my Weight Watchers meeting this morning (a blog about Weight Watchers will follow in the upcoming weeks) we were discussing goals. Obviously, most people in the room share a common goal, to lose a certain amount of weight. The discussion centered around how to reach our goal weight.   The consensus was that, in order to reach a hefty goal, one s

Chronicling Our Lives
Posted By : Rona Gura

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to watch the CNN documentary about Gilda Radner, “Love Gilda.” It was truly an interesting documentary, a film that will stay with me.   One interesting aspect of the film was the use of Gilda’s own letters, journals, and diaries. Current comedians such as Melissa McCarthy and Amy Poehler read Gilda’s own wor

Its That Resolution Time of Year Again

As tonight is New Years Eve, I am thinking about resolutions. My resolutions, most years, are generally the same, I will try to lose or maintain my goal weight. This year, I really wanted to make a resolution that was different and had some meaning and substance. So here goes.   This year, my resolution is to truly examine my business model and fi

Every Friend Was Once a Stranger
Posted By : Rona Gura

  I was playing around on Instagram as I was procrastinating writing this blog. As I’ve written before I’m a fan of several of The Real Housewives franchises. And, so, I follow Andy Cohen-the creator of The Real Housewives-on Instagram. His Instagram story today resonated with me and, I thought, was especially relevant to Gotham.   The theme of An

Who's Listening??
Posted By : Rona Gura

For years my children have insisted that our computers, cell phones, and Alexa device listen to our conversation. I have always dismissed and laughed off their “conspiracy theories.” This week something happened that made me question whether they were right.   Yesterday, my stepson and I were discussing a certain designer necklace that he was consi

We All Make Mistakes
Posted By : Rona Gura

As a first year associate at a large firm, I was involved in a case wherein one of the partners of the firm made a mistake. With a lot of work from myself and the partner involved, and a gracious concession from our adversary, the mistake was rectified. I took away a life long lesson from that experience; I never begrudge another attorney for makin

Eating Around The World
Posted By : Rona Gura

Anyone who knows me knows I love to travel. One of my favorite aspects about travelling is learning about a different culture. I love eating where the “locals” eat, going into their supermarkets, and pharmacies all to see beyond what tourists normally see. I especially love being able to bring home a piece of another lifestyle. Usually, it’s their
