It's a Swamp! No, It's the Everglades.

August 30, 2019

Southern Florida is filled with National Parks. There is Big Cypress in Ochopee; Biscayne in Miami, Key Biscayne and Homestead; Dry Tortugas in Key West; and the Everglades in Miami, Naples and Homestead. Although it is August and Florida is hot and humid this time of year, I found myself at Big Cypress and the Everglades.


Originally, when I thought of Southern Florida National Parks, I thought of swamps. Lots of swamp land with not much else to see or take in. Well, little did I realize how much life was there. In fact, this part of Florida is full of life.

If you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of a manatee, an American crocodile, American alligator, a Florida panther and one of the many species of amphibians, birds, fish and the list goes on. There is so much to see and experience here than first meets the eye. There are trails and roads where much of this area can be explored. You can kayak and even camp here too.

At one of the park stops, a National Park Service ranger mentioned how the Everglades was not a traditional National Park. It is not like the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone where it is apparent, with one step inside the park, why it's a National Park. Instead, the Everglades is a park that protects an ecosystem, an ecosystem that is so unique and so vast.


Keeping this in mind and after gaining a better understanding of this diverse area, I began to understand how it was much more than "just" a swamp. Instead, it allowed plants, animals, insects, etc. to exist in a way that is quite special. I'll admit, visiting this area in August may not have been the most ideal time, but if you come armed with sunscreen and bug repellent, you will be in store for a special experience.

Living Way “Below” One’s Income

February 20, 2020

I’ve never liked cheapskates. I once worked with a guy who – when we went out to lunch – would make sure he only paid for what he ordered. And when it came to figuring the tax he made sure the other person paid the extra penny. The result was that, instead of just “splitting the bill” there was a lot of bookkeeping and figuring going on. After awhile no one would go out with him.

The Museum of Modern Art: A $450 Million Upgrade

February 12, 2020 1 Comment

On November 1, 2019, I decided to visit MoMA on 53rd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues to see the final result of this stupendous project that opened for all to see on October 21st. Frankly, I was amazed at the number of people who showed up. After all, it was a Friday afternoon at 4:00 pm. People should be at work – or at school I thought. Or, was it because this was the day after Halloween? Obviously, I’m a bit out of it because MoMA was like Times Square on New Year’s Eve – but not quite. Everyone was very well behaved and incredibly focused and interested in the art.

The Movie: Downton Abbey

February 05, 2020

On Tuesday, October 8, 2019 – the first day of Yom Kippur – we headed out to our favorite Kips Bay Theatre (2nd Avenue and 31st Street) for a 6:20 pm showing of Downton Abbey. Kips Bay currently has a terrific deal: If one signs up for an “Insider” card (it’s free) you can see a first run movie at any time during the day or night on Tuesdays for $6.00 – which is pretty incredible. Or, paraphrasing The Godfather, I’d say, “That’s an offer we couldn’t refuse.”
