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...

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. He listened to what the caller had to say and quickly replied, “Do not call this house again.”   Although the caller id registe...

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 Nancy that I had always wanted to learn Spanish. I had taken French in school and realized, in later years, Spanish would have been ...

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, there’s a movement to declare the day after a national holiday so all those who stayed up late the night before can recuperate. But t...

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 those shows ended, I felt it was time for them to end. There were a handful of shows, however, that when the series came to an end, ...

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 shouldn’t focus on the ultimate goal. Rather, for Weight Watchers purposes, it would be better to set smaller goals, i.e. lose fiv...

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 words and thoughts. Hearing her thoughts and words so many years after her death--and hearing the readers’ appreciation of having th...

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 figure out what works and what doesn’t work. Thereafter, I want to fix what doesn’t work and work on replicating what does. For me...
