Today's Birthdays

Patrick Henry Prominent figure American Revolution - Videos

United we stand, divided we fall. Let us not split into factions which will destroy that union upon which our existence hangs. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death.

John F. Kennedy 35th President of the U.S. - Videos

If freedom is to survive and prosper, it will require the sacrifice, the effort and the thoughtful attention of every citizen.

I met Bob Hope in 1963 when I was on my honeymoon at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach Florida. We only spoke for a moment in the lobby but he smiled and told me he was going to live to 100. I was never sure why he said that but he was correct. He died two months after his 100th birthday.

Tuesday May 24, 2022 ... Bada bing Bada BOOM BOOM BOOM ... as ships sailing under the Verrazano Bridge welcome Memorial Day Weekend with the loud thunderous sounds of a cannon salute as befits a reenactment of the American Revolution fought in this very place where I sit typing this post.

The first year I moved here the resounding booms scared me and a client as we sat at the table doing a reading - then rushing to the window to see what happened.

32 years later I'm used to the noise - though today it can be frightening as we live in uncertain times replete with violence such as the Founding Fathers could never have imaged when they set in place the American Experiment.

Fleet Week NYC - In the News

Since 1984, New York City has held Fleet Week to honor the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. The week features extensive military demonstrations, as well as the opportunity for the public to tour some of the visiting ships. The Memorial Day commemoration is a highlight of the week's festivities, featuring the singing of Taps and a military aircraft fly over in honor of those who lost their lives in service to the United States.

Memorial Day features a parade in Bay Ridge where collectors get to show off their antique cars. The parade ends at John Paul Jones Park outside then it's on to Fort Hamilton down the block. Memorial Day speaks to some people as a time to be patriotic even though the country is at odds with itself. Whatever you do try to make it special.

Climate Change This Summer

NOAA Predicts Abnormally Strong Atlantic Hurricane Season: The 7th Year in a Row

Weather fluctuations - highlighted by extreme heat conditions - mean you have to rethink outdoor activities. I know some people don't like air conditioning but the body can only withstand just so much heat especially mixed with humidity. In NYC we call it the 3 H's - hazy hot, and humid.

Summer heat leads to violence and confusion. Mix heat with alcohol and other substances and we're in for a wild ride.

We know the planet won't be sustainable much longer (end times) so please be careful dealing with climate change, blackouts and related issues. We all handle heat differently. To me it's all about the humidity.

Wildfires will definitely increase air pollution and exacerbate respiratory conditions even those recently created by covid.

Do you remember last summer when smoke traveled across the country from west to east reaching the east coast where we posted pics of the smog?
