Do You Have A Passion?

By |July 17th, 2017|


Having recently celebrated the July 4th holiday and vacationing in Maine and New York, I feel energized and ready to take on new challenges. Even though I am not sure what to expect or where the unknown will take me, I am excited at the thought of new possibilities. Many thoughts come to mind. Do […]

You Can Have It All

By |June 17th, 2017|

I ride my bike several times a week. I love the freedom of biking and the opportunity it gives me to experience another journey. I peddle through neighborhoods and communities where the landscape of each reflects the personality of those who live there. I venture to town squares surrounded by boutiques, restaurants, movie theaters […]

From The Bedroom From The Boardroom

By |May 22nd, 2017|


There are many stories to share when you work in a family business and I’d like to share a little bit about mine. I worked with my husband and two of my sons for 15 years. I loved everything about it as it was an extension of my family, only we now moved from […]

One year and a half ago we moved to Florida. Arty had […]

What If???

My grandson Charlie a teenager, was taking the train to New York City from Connecticut.   My immediate reaction was, What if he gets lost? What if he can’t  find his friends?  What if he misses the train?  What if….?  What if….?

What if……?  My husbands least favorite words.  What if this….?   What if that…….?”  And […]

Winter in New England seems to go on and on and on and on. If its not 10 degrees then its snowing like hell or both. The plow guys will be driving Ferraris in the Spring.  My ongoing comment has been “if you don’t like the winter weather why are you living in New […]

 Those of you who have been following me for a while know that I’m a huge sports nut—-football, baseball & hoops—but that my teams, the Mets, Giants & Knicks, basically stink. I’m not a Yankee fan (if fact I might be considered a Yankee hater) but I’ve been following the ARod drama closely. It’s […]

Lessons Learned From Failure

By |January 7th, 2014|

One of my friends recently decided to take an examination to qualify for a professional license. While he had been practicing for many years legally without the license he felt it would help his credibility by passing the test. He took the test with little preparation assuming his knowledge and experience would get him […]
