New York City -Out of the Doldrums

New York, Sandy, and the Nor’Easter

New York City has taken a beating. Devastation from hurricane Sandy and if that was not enough, a Nor’Easter came and blew us away and then dumped snow on us. Wow! How are New Yorkers to respond? Well, the good news is that the sun will come out today and New Yorkers will
Get out of the doldrums.

Ready For Some Football

Hello world

You know fall is here when the kids are restless and want to go back to school. In two weeks summer will be officially over. Wow! Where did the days of summer go? If you haven’t yet taken a break – you better do so now. You still have time.

If you are a football fan you are licking your chops because football season is almost here. Last night I tried to watch the Colts and Steelers, but could not stay awake. I did see enough of Luck to know that he has skills and will win some games. I don’t think either the Colts or the Broncos are going to do very well. But, what do I know. As someone said, “that is why we play the game.”

New York! New York

The game I really wanted to see was on Saturday between the NY Jets and the NY Giants. It is funny how two New York teams could not find a way to stay and play in New York. Anyway, as a NY Giants fan I expected them to win and I heard they did. It would be nice to see both teams do well, but the NY Jets are just not ready. Many people expected to see Rex Ryan show his hand in the preseason games and they are upset that he did not. I had no such expectations. I believe that the Jets will put on greater performances when the games matter. I believe both New York teams will make the playoffs. As we have seen now, the Giants just want to get in and they are heading to the Super bowl. The Jets have to fight to get in that when they get in they have no strength left. Hopefully there will be many great Sunday afternoons and Monday nights of football. I can’t wait!

Ready For Some Football

The Olympics had filled the summer nicely, now it’s time for some football. The games filled that Sunday afternoon void and with some baseball games later in the Sunday afternoon, there is very little choice even if you have cable. Let’s bring on football!

Is Wall Street Watching Main Street

Hello world,

In the New York news and probably the world is a group of people under the banner of Occupy Wall Street. They are demonstrating against Wall Street greed. They are in main street holding up placards and banners, and yes, news media and tourists are there with cameras, but is Wall Street watching main street? Do you think they should stop now or should they keep going? Share your comments.

Signs of Fall

Signs of Fall

Hello world,

<

Fall season is here.

Nature is ready to put on a show. Make sure you take some time to really enjoy the rich beautiful colors of the trees and shrubs. I love fall season because of the rich vibrant colors of the leaves. it is breath-taking.

In New York there are great places to see the fall foliage. Central Park is one place. There is also the Adirondacks, the Taconic Parkway, Woodbury Commons, just to name a few. Fall is an awesome time to see how nature mixes and matches colors. You can get a few fashion tips on what colors go great together. Even if you are not a professional photographer, you can still go out and capture some beautiful pictures. Stack up on memory cards when you see them on sale. Don’t put all your pictures on one card. Well, get out there and get that postcard picture. Feel free to comment.

I just completed a book of 31 wisdom principles for success. It will soon be available on Apple’s IBookstore and on Barnes and Noble for Nook owners. I just found out that if you can download a digital reader from Adobe so you can read ePub books on your computer. The process took me a about 3 hours because it has to be formatted a certain way. You have to put in the Table of Contents using heading 1, heading 2 and heading 3, and you have to remove page numbers. Why? Because E-book readers can adjust the size of the font so they need free-flowing text. As I am going through the process of determining whether it is better to send your manuscript to a book publisher hoping you’ll get a contract or go with a print on demand publisher. It is really an interesting concept and when my book appears in the stores I will tell you exactly what to do.

 

Jets and NFL Football

The Jets Have It

Hello world

The New York Jets play tonight on CBS in prime time. That’s what it’s all about. The Jets belong in the prime time regardless of what anyone else thinks. Ever since Rex Ryan came to New York he made it clear that the Jets were about to wake up sleeping Giants. They have done that. People are not giving the Jets and Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez much credit because they forgot the New England Patriots were stealing the signals from the other teams including the Jets.

Has anyone noticed that since the scandal they haven’t won anything? What are your thoughts on the upcoming NFL football season and how do you think the Jets and the Patriots will do. Please leave your comments here.
