We said goodbye to my cousin Geoff Borsella last week and we did it in a wonderful way, with a perfect blend of family and dear friends. Geoff enjoyed reading my column so I thought it only fitting to start off talking about him. Geoff gave us “kids” awesome memories: From the Bronx — where he worked and where little farm kids visited with eyes wide open, full of fear, awe, and amazement — we saw his life. (more…)
What a nice, warm Sunday we had! I so enjoyed scraping the ice, which had melted a bit, off the driveway. But now we’re skating again, with icy conditions. Snow is good, ice is bad — unless it’s in your glass.
NASCAR is back! Welcome home to those lucky ones who got to attend. (more…)
I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays. My family had a great time this Christmas; the little ones entertained us quite nicely. Children have an uncanny ability of making everything more cheerful. I guess seeing things through their eyes brings us back to when we were that age. It’s awesome! (more…)
I would like to wish everyone a beautiful Christmas. May it be full of love, laughter and joy. I love that Christmas feeling — the way total strangers smile at each other and extend their greetings. Even though it’s a crazy and frantic time, Christmas makes my heart feel good. I love seeing the little ones trying so hard to be good, knowing that not only is Santa watching but so is that little red elf on the shelf. (more…)
The East End is orange, with pumpkins everywhere! The weather feels so nice, along with the smell of the leaves, crispy apples, etc. Enjoy! (more…)
Brrr! I actually wore shoes Sunday morning. That didn’t last long, but it was chilly!
Get ready for lots of orange as the arrival of pumpkins is right around the corner. Good luck, everyone! (more…)
Summer is not over! There are still a few more “official” weeks left; you just need to get out and enjoy it. Get going; the beach isn’t going anywhere. (more…)
So, it’s August. How did this happen already? Anyway, August brings yummy tomatoes and they are here! Eggplant is also making its presence known. There’s lots of good stuff from your local farmers. (more…)
