Getting Ready for Middle School

Middle school can be a daunting time in the lives of students, parents and guardians alike. Middle school can be, and most often is, a time of wonder, great fun, the trying on of new young adolescent behaviors, exploration and mindset growth, acceptance of heightened responsibility and preparation for what lies ahead. Students must meet several developmental milestones in their growth from young children to young adolescents to young adults.

As parents, when our children experience the dreaded “growing pains,” our emotions run the gamut from pride to fear, from anxiety to dread, and back again! There are no handbooks that guarantee successful passages for our children, but the more we understand the changes that middle school will present for you and your child, the more we can anticipate the bumps in the road and help guide our children in age-appropriate and effective ways.

A backward glance…

Two weeks ago, I received an email, “The Back Nine.” My research indicated it was authored by Papa Mike on August 6, 2013, and illustrates just how time moves ahead, and before we know it, we’ve entered the “back nine” of our lives: “How did I get here so fast?  Where did the years go and where did my youth go.”  It hit home as I received it ...

An open hose open house

Last Saturday the Somers Volunteer Fire Department held an open house, where they invited residents to come over and take a closer look at what they do and how they do it. I brought the ever-furry Gidget-the-dog with me, to see if she might take to the lifestyle and consider becoming a firedog. Sometimes a firehouse has a Dalmatian with a lot of dots on it, and when you connect the dots it forms ...

Celebrating Halloween

According to ancient lore, Halloween, or All Hallow’s Eve, is when the barrier between those on Earth and those who have gone on ahead, is at its most vulnerable.  If we listen hard enough, we might even hear celestial music and the voices of our loved ones.

We’re supposed to dress as we wish to be seen in the year to come which led, of course, to Halloween costume parades.

Applauding a New Theater in New Paltz

People, people who need people, are the luckiest people in the world.

Imagine Barbara Streisand’s signature song, “People,” turned on its side.

Is it so much luck as it is necessity to need people? Things that are necessary can get the better of us. We mean well, sure, but we still can make questionable choices that come back to bite us. We can tear into, with feral ...

Like a Kid in a Candy Store

When my kids were little, I think the only person who got more excited about Halloween than them, was me.  The only issue was that Halloween was supposed to be for kids, not for their candy-lovin’ mamas who supposedly had the maturity of a more sophisticated palate that was better suited to dark chocolate truffles and lemon squares.  But the truth of the matter is, my palate never ...

Michael Douglas

October 16, 2018

Oh, alright.  I admit it, my husband looks like Michael Douglas!

This revelation did not come easy, but come it finally did.

It all began in the 1990’s when my husband, Ken, came home and told me he was at the mall when he noticed a woman following him around.  He said she finally approached him and asked him for his autograph.

“Excuse me?” he said.
