I have blogged before about the Photo Club I go to in Groton, New York. The beginning of January brought the monthly meeting and a homework assignment – take pictures of snow. Remarkably, it snowed that night. I need to pick my favorite five so am going to let you all help me. Vote by… Continue reading Photos of Snow
Yesterday, Governor David A Paterson presented the Executive Budget for the fiscal year 2010-2011. New York’s fiscal year runs from April 1 to March 31. In introducing Paterson, Lieutenant Governor Richard Ravage used the word collegial twice. This should have been a warning to all – lawmakers and others – listening and watching the presentation… Continue reading NYS Executive Budget Presentation
I am a huge salmon fan. Like my fanaticism surrounding the sport of hockey, I find new and delicious ways to serve salmon all the time. My favorite is simple and grilled on cedar planks. I have also done salmon with lentils in a crock pot. The lentils cook all day and the salmon goes in on… Continue reading Salmon Patties
Saturday night I went out with a good friend from high school to hear another high school friend and the band he plays in at Number 5 restaurant. The original plan was to go to this restaurant and listen for a while, then go to another place to hear another band. We never left Number… Continue reading A New Beer Tried
I have spent a lot of time this new year – and yes, the first month is just barely halfway through – reading and commenting on balance, perceptions and judgment. The problem, personally, is that I was not relating these readings or my comments to my own situation. While balance is, and seemingly will always… Continue reading Balance, Judgment and Some Personal Thoughts
A friend of mine posed this question on his blog on Friday and I couldn’t help but bite. I did ask permission first and am slightly scared to delve into this now as I truly have no idea what is in my wallet. Deena also took the challenge to see what was in her purse.… Continue reading What’s In Your Wallet?
What would you do for your children? Friday I turned on BravoTV at 8 am to take a break from reality. I have watched news clips almost continually since seeing the Haitian earthquake first hit the news while I was in line at the grocery. I tend to see a lot of news on those… Continue reading Parents and Parenting
As usual, I was surfing the web and reading some of the major newspapers of the country. I like knowing what is going on in the New York Times and The Washington Post as well as several others that are in the Midwest and the West. Sometimes I miss something but, in that case, a… Continue reading Kindergarten Conundrum
Many are the days that parents, particularly mothers it seems, would love to have bed rest, a sanctioned excuse to not leave bed. I vividly recall my second pregnancy. Twins. In 1986-87. The things my OB/GYN did not tell me at first were that he was going to disable me at 26 weeks, that he… Continue reading Bed Rest Anyone?
Through Five for Ten on Momalom.com, I have come to meet and know a huge community of bloggers. Most are females. Most are mothers. Some are married. Some are single. All are fantastic! I thought to myself, when I first read about “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” on one of these blog, that this was… Continue reading Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
