SO, WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THAT  NOT SHOPPING THING?

On April 30th, I announced I would go for one year without buying anything new. I had many reasons for doing it.  All of which are listed in some of the blogs following my bellowing commitment to a full year of non-consumerism. I took bets on how long I could last.  Some… Read More

WHAT I’M LOVING THIS WEEK

  BOXING   Who would have thunk it?  Lucy and I decided to mix up our exercise regime, so we signed up for a boxing class at Gotham which is a boxing gym with outposts in the city and one pop up in Long Island.  I was excited and dubious. Lucy was… Read More

SHHHHHH……NO ONE CARES…..

SHHHHHH……NO ONE CARES…..

Maybe I’m getting cranky.  Maybe New York is getting too loud in general or maybe, just maybe many people have lost all sense of personal space, privacy and the use of their indoor voices while indoors and on their phones. It’s not a new thing, but it seems to have gotten worse.… Read More

WHY JEFF BEZOS RUNS THE WORLD

WHY JEFF BEZOS RUNS THE WORLD

As most people are aware retail in the country may not be dying, but it’s certainly on life support. People are shopping.  Not me. I’m doing well, thank you all for asking.

Literary agent Ed Victor passed away last night.  Ed was a bigger than life character.  He was like a someone who could have appeared in one of the books he seemed to effortlessly sell. He was a lover of people, parties, golf, travel and his work. He was one of those people who… Read More
