WOMEN SHUFFLE IN PROTEST

WOMEN SHUFFLE IN PROTEST

  That is really not a fair title for this blog.  Though there is a slight element of truth in it. Yesterday 2.9 million people around the globe joined together in solidarity to march in protest of the inauguration of Donald J. Trump. The reason I say shuffle is not to negate… Read More

THE NOT SO FRIENDLY SKIES

THE NOT SO FRIENDLY SKIES

  Without question yesterday was the worst day in the air I have had in fifty years of flying. Today, between exhaustion and cortisol overload we are all walking around like zombies. There is an ineptitude that reigns supreme at airports and usually you can get through it fairly unscathed, but yesterday… Read More

CLOSING OUT THE YEAR

CLOSING OUT THE YEAR

  I don’t historically do year end summation blogs. I’m always on the road this time of year and a bottle of champagne or some fireworks and a Happy New Year usually suffice. But this has been a hell of a year on so many fronts. Don’t get me wrong, it’s been… Read More

DOING NOTHING – SOMEONE HAS TO

DOING NOTHING – SOMEONE HAS TO

We are in Mexico pretty much doing nothing.  Which once you dial down your Type A personality to a Type Q works pretty well.  It takes about two to three hours for the dial down to take effect. The most strenuous, regimented thing we do is work out and I’m so dialed down… Read More

THE BATTLES OF A PRINCESS

THE BATTLES OF A PRINCESS

I wasn’t planning to blog this today. I was planning to share lovely pictures of the resort we are at in Mexico. But ever since noon, when I found out Carrie Fisher passed away I have been unable to think of anything  else.   I cannot let her death go by without writing… Read More

OUR YEARS ON THE ROAD

OUR YEARS ON THE ROAD

When people mention this blog to me nine times out of ten they always say the family travel blogs are their favorites. I have to admit that are some of my favorites too. Not just the blogs but the memories. The traveling started before the blog, but we didn’t always do the… Read More

WE DID IT!

WE DID IT!

We  hit my goal of collecting 200 coats to donate to New York Cares Coat Drive early last week, might have ten days ago, but I wanted to hold out until the final coats were in. And we actually have two more coats to pick up tomorrow. Thanks to the generosity of… Read More

WE NEED A LITTLE CHRISTMAS

WE NEED A LITTLE CHRISTMAS

Midtown Manhattan not being the cheeriest of spots these days since it’s turned into Trumpville. But decided to stop being grinchey and I went off in search of some Christmas  cheer. Saks is has the most spectacular lights this year. The windows are pretty, but better at night. In fact the whole… Read More

VELVET UNDER TREE

VELVET UNDER TREE

Despite the fact I don’t really feel like it’s Christmastime it is only 19 days away. So it would be time for some shopping suggestions. Aside, I’m watching CNN as I write this and it really is hard to focus on buying gifts when the world is spinning the way it is.… Read More

#GIVINGTUESDAY

#GIVINGTUESDAY

Come on people  – I’m not too impressed here. Well, I’m impressed with some people who sent coats over right away. People who sent me an email and said they already gave their coats  – which is swell as long as people get what they need. I appreciate people contacting me and… Read More

GIVING BACK

GIVING BACK

Tomorrow is declared #GIVINGTUESDAY  but I thought I would jump start it today. Every day should be #GIVINGDAY especially this time of year. So much need. I fear very soon so much more. Our family always gives coats to the New York Cares Coat Drive.  I dive into all the closets and… Read More

EXHAUSTION

EXHAUSTION

It’s been too long a week. I’m sort of out of words.  I will regroup over the weekend. Each day I am more horrified by his choices and actions. But for now I will show you how the neighborhood has only gotten worse. Unlivable. Everyone nervous, pissed off and displaced. He should get… Read More

UNLEASHED HATRED

UNLEASHED HATRED

  I was going to write something uplifting today.  But I’ve spent much of it both fending off hateful emails from some people, (mostly from people over at Gratitude and Trust) which oddly did not surprise me in the least. I was pretty much expecting it. But when you write on the… Read More

DEALING WITH PTSD – PRESIDENT TRUMP STRESS DISORDER

DEALING WITH PTSD – PRESIDENT TRUMP STRESS DISORDER

  There are two kinds of people walking around America these days, those who are happy and feel like they have won some big prize and then there are the ones suffering from anxiety, fear, anger and stress. You can tell the latter easily, there is a look in the eye, a… Read More
