It was a whirlwind of a week. Sunday afternoon I had an appointment at the Apple Store in Roosevelt Field to determine if my iPad which failed to charge Friday could be repaired; I replaced it with a newer model. Sunday eve we attended a Theresa Foundation Comedy Fundraiser and Shelly won a raffle. Monday, setting up a meeting and photo shoot the n

The Gotham Foundation each year at our holiday party supports charitable causes that matters to our members. Gotham even features a Make A Difference “MAD” group for those connected to causes and more; others may differ but I tak

Thanksgiving this year flipped the script a bit. We gathered smaller than usual and many use other means such as Zoom or FaceTime to connect with others who usually joined us.

'Cause it matters

Certainly explains mine.   I chair the Board of Directors on Services Now for Adult Persons (“SNAP” before the acronym had other worthy uses!). The Board’s biggest concern involves the complet

At Thanksgiving which we celebrated last Thursday, we express thanks for our family, friends and all good things. In two days we get a different chance to express our thanks. Indeed, many of our inboxes probably experienced receipt of email messages exhorting our participation in giving on Tuesday, christened  “Giving Tuesday,” Interestingly, in Go

Since this blog appears on Mothers Day, let me take a moment to thank the moms, especially mine – and the lovely gal who I helped make one and wish all an enjoyable day!   Five weeks ago today, I blogged about The Spirit of Theresa so please (re-)read for more about the great work of the Foundation and its founders, Susan and Vincent Russo (I also
