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.

HIDDEN TREASURE

HIDDEN TREASURE

If you are from New York or know people who live in New York you will likely have heard them complain that nothing is like it used to be.  New York City used to have the most extraordinary gems tucked in the least likely places. Old Ukrainian butchers next to tattoo parlors,… Read More

I NEVER PLANNED ON THIS

I NEVER PLANNED ON THIS

  I am now in the third week of my year-long non-shopping experiment. Experiment makes it sound like I’m in a lab surrounded by petri dishes, wearing goggles while trying to figure out some molecular structure.

SO SELDOM SPEECHLESS

SO SELDOM SPEECHLESS

I was going to blog something else tonight, but I so upset by the goings on in the country I just can’t type something personal or banal.  I can’t believe we are living through this mind boggling nightmare of a government.  Nothing seems to matter, lies, deception, rules, the Constitution, knowledge, science,… Read More

JUST A BITE

JUST A BITE

LA is great city.  And I haven’t always felt that way. But the last few years it’s just killing it. Due to the high prices and closure of so many small businesses in New York, these days LA is the place to find those wonderful little gems, called small stores and family run… Read More

Is it entertainment or exploitation? It’s called MISSING RICHARD SIMMONS.  A serial format podcast with writer/filmmaker Dan Terberksi as… Read More
