 I MISS RICHARD SIMMONS TOO

 I MISS RICHARD SIMMONS TOO

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

MY MISTAKE / CALL ME RELENTLESS OR BOTH

MY MISTAKE / CALL ME RELENTLESS OR BOTH

As many of you figured out we had put up the wrong link to Lucy’s Leukemia/Lymphoma money raising event. Or I put it up. Well, Lucy did give it to me. Though in all fairness the buck stops here. But you are all, well, not all, but many of you are very… Read More

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.

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

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  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

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
