Shelly left the gym early the other day since once nearby user constantly removed his mask during workouts; of course she complained but the “hall monitors” never seemed to police that location inside. As we dine I shared my experience at the Roosevelt Field Mall Friday afternoon. I visited the Apple Store their by appointment for service on my iPhone (It needed a battery replacement, and I found the repair cost-effective.). It was my first time, post COVID visiting that mall...
A time existed – it seems many years ago – where a laptop and desktop took up space in this office.  The office featured a different configuration; there was my desk and the desk setup my son left behind when he moved out.  At some point, the desktop no longer served any purpose.  I even lent indefinitely the flatscreen to a close friend. While a consultant advising the 2010 re-election of my friend Gary Ackerman, the laptop required replacement.  I already enjoyed my iPhone;...

President Obama, during the DNC, tweeted his “summer” playlist see pic at left). Since this blog falls on the weekend between the DNC and the RNC, it seems a good time to re-share my “State of Our Union playlist; I created it before the 2019 annual presidential speech. Some people create playlists all the time. It predates streaming. People would make their own tapes. My daughter would make CDs for the car. For me, just as with drafting these blog, something needs to muse me....
Looking back several weeks I wrote of concert plans. Earlier this week I emailed with my friend Jason about the postponement of an amazing show scheduled for last Thursday at the Kings Theatre; we had plans to see John Fogerty; from Fogerty’s site we knew for a few weeks of the show’s postponement but LiveNation only emailed something formal this week (that remains a whole other discussion and I read that many ticket holders expressed upset how many events continue to hold th...
Let’s Welcome the New Year with Some Musical Cheer   In a comment on a blog my friend Paul suggested making today’s blog short.   Traditionally, the blog runs long because it includes a list; it did last year.   This commentary, in a nod to Paul's comment on my comment to last Tuesday's blog and Friday’s blogger who also encourages me to offer shorter blogs, I simply share my verified playlist to herald the new year. Interestingly, unlike the happy holidays playlist now at an...
Last weekend we celebrated 34. The actual anniversary fell one week ago today; I noted it in last week’s blog (‘Cause it matters). We chose to officially celebrate on the eve before. Interestingly, we chose the “events” based on an unplanned interruption several weeks earlier.   I scored “twofer” tickets for Jersey Boys on February 16 at the New World Stages but a manhole fire in the street outside the entrance canceled that eve’s show. We were walking down the south side of ...
After I put last week’s blog to bed, I noticed responses on twitter to a New York Times column that appeared on line last weekend – ahead of its appearance in print, one week ago today. The op-ed played on the apparent rejection by Queens residents of Amazon. The writer – incredulously to this commentator and many who shared their own valid views on twitter – found my home borough “a good place to leave.” Worse, the Times gave a title, “When Queens was lame” that so mislabele...

More from the "Technology is Our Friend" file (Huff Post) : A man from Westchester, New York was rushed to a hospital last month when his Apple Watch alerted him to a dangerously fast heartbeat. That notification helped save his life, doctors said. William Monzidelis, 32, was working at his family’s bowling alley in the Bronx when he became dizzy and had unexplained bleeding, NBC New York reported. After tracking his alarmingly fast pulse, the Apple Watch alerted him to seek...

Technology continues to intrigue me. I make no living in the field but it certainly help me in terms of efficiency, access to the information I keep and need, getting my thoughts out there, advocating for my clients and pushing back quickly when the need arises to challenge policies, programs, and proposals. I also find it useful to promote my involvements, including Gotham's upcoming Battle of the Bands, April 17 at the legendary Cafe Wha? co-owned by Gotham member Willi...
