What Now?

On the Bright Side…. If there’s some benefit to having tripped into a New York City sidewalk pothole, trashing my ticket to “Hamilton,” sending my lovin’ kin, as a result, into an unexpected adventure of ambulances, emergency rooms, changed schedules, and so on, it’s that now, in a technologically-impressive boot and armed with crutches and […]

Peacemaker Awards, Not a Moment Too Soon Absent the 20th century world wars, can we remember a time since, so filled with conflict, seemingly invading every aspect of our society, seemingly propelled by American’s thin-skinned, rash president? Tough times. All the more reason to recognize, honor and celebrate the National Conflict Resolution Center (NCRC), which […]

As Luck Would Have It…Or, “Happy” Valentine’s Day! So, if I were living in pre-historic times, it might never occur to me to consider whether or not I’m happy. Better, back then, to be lucky. You know, to find food, versus to be food. Historian and author Darrin McMahon (“Happiness: A History.”) says happiness has […]

He’s Driving Me Crazy. No Really! For a variety of reasons of which I will spare you the details, I have of late been charged with being the driver. Normally, this would not be a big deal; after all, I’ve been driving since before …well, let’s just say I’ve been driving cars since we all […]

Lil’ Bit O’Coin I wonder what ever happened to the Humphreys, that big-city family whose outings were dedicated – yes, dedicated – to how much money they could find on a New York street? Did it pay their rent? Buy their groceries? Well, it was reported that they found “thousands,” but I, as an equally […]

Want a Ride? Need a Ride? Here’s Your Ticket! Marilyn Greenblatt moved with her family from New York to San Diego in 2002. She joined Jewish Family Service of San Diego (JFS) in 2003 and played an integral role in the initial launch of “Rides & Smiles,” a volunteer-based transportation program for San Diego seniors […]

Wry Not? Fen, our poodle-bichon who’s now maybe four or more, has, in his adulthood, acquired a wry way of looking at me. I say “wry,” because he knows I don’t always know all the answers. I especially didn’t have all the answers one hot Sunday in the park, when we stopped to watch a […]

  Am I saying this right? That Ginger, she is one hunky girl! Maybe she’s not quite “pure,” but she’s got enough pit bull in her to send me sailing across the room with a wave of her tail. Her version of an apology is throwing herself into my arms and licking my – well, […]

We really like Thomas Jefferson. He was a smart guy. If you can’t remember anything about him, make sure you see “Hamilton,” once you can afford it. One piece of Jeffersonian wisdom …” the most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do,” is a directive I treasure. […]

It’s Complicated. It’s been that kinda May: half of our clan have birthdays; nearly every non-profit in the city hosts an annual event; there’s Mother’s Day; J.Walcher Communications celebrated its 15th anniversary. We could only nod to Passover, which we missed by a day. The birthday kids of May; well, the problem is, they’re no […]
