IRS reminder: Tax Scams Continue Year-Round

August 16, 2019

Although the April filing deadline has passed, scam artists remain hard at work, and the IRS today urged taxpayers to be on the lookout for a spring surge of evolving phishing emails and telephone scams.

The IRS is seeing signs of two new variations of tax-related scams. One involves Social Security numbers related to tax issues and another threatens people with a tax bill from a fictional ...

Follow Your Intuition…It Knows the Way

Intuition can be a tricky thing, mostly because we sometimes push it aside. Afterall, it warns us…and maybe we don’t want to hear that warning. Joan had an experience many of us have had: pushing past her intuition only to learn her gut was right all along.

Joan: Throughout the last decade, my professional life has taken many twists and turns. There are times that I operate ...

Don't Let Anyone Ruin Your Day

Joan: Do you have one person in your life that really irks you? No matter what you say or do, this person has the ability to totally ruin your day, or in some cases, your month, year, and even life! I know I do.

Q. Wow, someone got to you. Sorry to hear that Joan. But you’re not alone. I think this is common. What happened with you?

Joan: Recently, a trusted friend informed me that a ...

Where Do We Start the Larger Conversation About Guns?

Let's talk about our rights and our freedoms.

How many were free to shop at a Wal-Mart last two Sundays ago without fear that El Paso copycat would announce himself with the staccato fire of an AR-15?

You saw the stampede in the theater district in New York City when a motorcycle backfired. And the evacuation of a Wal-Mart in Union because of a false report.

We may have freedoms, but ...

In Praise of Fútbol, the Game We Call Soccer

What I’ve learned in my travels to Europe and South America in the last couple of years is how refreshing it is to get away from English.

Not being able to understand the banter of language around you is a chance to luxuriate in your own thoughts. You are in a crowd, but not part of it, free of the irritating banality of most conversations.

In a strange land I can sit and be oblivious ...

A Portrait of the Artist as a Not So Young Man

I am an artist. It says so on my T-shirt.

My colorful shirt, which significantly inflates my position in life, confers great status. For one, it announces that I am a musical performer at the Montclair Jazz Festival. This distinguishes me from the thousands of other festival goers who only get to enjoy a great day of music, not make it.

More importantly, wearing my artist T-shirt ...

No Laughing Matter

Did you hear about the three holes in the ground?

Well, well, well.

I was harshly accused by my kids of telling a dad joke. I don’t remember what the quip was, but I am sure it was stupid. Still, this accusation really stung because my kids are well past the age of feeling embarrassed by my innocuous responses to sincere questions.

They have lived with me long enough to expect ...

Sprinkle this on Your Watermelon: Chile Lime Salt

August 18, 2019

Give the sweet summer watermelon a whole new flavor profile with chile lime salt.

Marty Silverman, manager of Savory Spice Shop in Westfield, said the shop’s Peruvian Chile Lime Seasoning is a big seller.

The lime adds brightness and the chile gives the fruit it a savory kick. But don't underestimate the importance of salt in the combo.

“Growing up, my dad, brother and I ...
