I have never been one for expensive cars, I'm just glad to have one that it starts in the morning. Did I ever own an expensive one? No. I once went into a dealership and asked for the cheapest car they had. I walked out with a stripped down 4-cylinder red Toyota pickup truck with no radio and no air conditioner and was ...Read Full Post »

I love psychics (but you knew that). I have been going to them for years. I don't live my life by what they tell me (maybe I should) but I really enjoy listening to what they have to say. I've been to quite a few over the years. I've sat in a store front window in Greenwich Village while a gypsy read my palm. I can't tell you how many kitchens I ha...Read Full Post »

I tend not to go to the doctor when something is wrong; I will muscle through the pain until it goes away. Do not mistake this for some strong-stoicism because I will complain every minute that the pain is there. It was this anti-stoicism that landed me in the hospital just a few days before my son Alexander's third birthday.
I wo...Read Full Post »

With all the traditions that come with this time of year, there is one in particular that my friends and I have not celebrated since we started having kids and the holidays became all about them (thanks for ruining Christmas, kids). Every year, after the tree in Rockefeller Center went up, we would gather as many of us as we could and we'd venture into New York City. Some ...Read Full Post »

There is the stereotype of the Dad standing in the bleachers at his child's little league or football game, screaming till he's red in the face, yelling and generally acting like an ass. He shouts things like 'What are you blind, ump? He was safe by a mile!' or 'How much is the other team paying you!' or, when trying to ...Read Full Post »

I state the following with no animosity at all - if anything I say it with respect and admiration: my ex-wife Arlene is a pain-in-the-ass.
How is that a compliment you may ask - let me explain.
My ex-wife Arlene is a pain-in-the-as...Read Full Post »

This past August I spent a week in a rented two-family house in Belmar, NJ with members of my family. It was a beautiful house with a large wrap-around porch in a very quiet neighborhood. As I sat in one of the fatly-stuffed cushioned chairs that ringed the porch I couldn't help but think how different my first Belmar s...Read Full Post »

In the early part of the last decade, when I was not quite a novice with online dating, but had yet to achieve a Master's Degree in the art of finding love on the internet, I met ChampagneLady58. ChampagneLady58 was a very beautiful woman with high cheek bones and an air of sophistication that could be seen even through the limited quality ...Read Full Post »
