Better late than never…

Obviously, we made it home OK, because her I am posting.  After managing to make great time for most of the trip home from Buffalo to NYC, we ran into two accidents and almost constant construction in the last 50 miles.  Then I ended up in the wrong lane about two freakin’ blocks from the […]

Raising the Bar on child porn prosecutions

When my son was two we lived next door to our neighborhood’s biggest and most popular playground. We basically treated it like our backyard, and were there all the time.  There were some tense moments that summer between a few parents and one of the Parks Department workers who maintained the playground.  Some of the […]

The Beatles, Windows 7, and people way cooler than me

Microsoft Holiday Preview So I’m in the West Village at a media preview of Microsoft products for the holiday season.  Yes, it’s a sticky 75 degrees out (although I’m wearing a too-big sweater, to hide my baggy pants).  Yes, summer just started a couple of days ago.  So what holiday are they referring to?  I […]

Weight Loss Tuesday: Nothing to wear

Not a plateau I am right smack dab in between sizes.  And as I sit here licking the bowl from my last meal and looking over my daily weigh-ins, I’m noticing that while my clothes have definitely gotten looser in the past few weeks, the scale hasn’t really moved.  It’s been hovering around the same […]
