Start Your Year with a Smile – 2019

Welcome to the 8th Annual edition of this post. I started 2018 in Key West, which is an interesting place, and one that left me with a couple of things to report, but for which I wasn’t able to get a picture. Actually, the first of those happened in Miami Beach.  Katie and I were … Continue reading Start Your Year with a Smile – 2019

Start Your Year With a Smile – 2018 Edition

Welcome to the 2018 Edition of my photographic year in review.  A couple of modest themes will show up later on, but for the most part we're just going to dive right in. Sometimes fusion works really well.  Like with cuisine. And jazz. As a retail concept, though, maybe it can be just a bit … Continue reading Start Your Year With a Smile – 2018 Edition

Start Your Year with a Smile – 2017 Edition

Here it is - Year 7 of the photo blog.  This year, I had 94 pictures to choose from, including a few that were sent by friends and (gasp) family.  I decided to keep it clean – strictly PG. Except, of course, for when I didn't. Which means that the hardest part of this job … Continue reading Start Your Year with a Smile – 2017 Edition

Just Plain Not Smart Enough

Political commentary coming shortly, but first, here are two recent conversations, one that I overheard and one that I was part of. Overheard: The other day, in my neighborhood Walgreen’s, I saw a skinny young man who was wearing pants that defied gravity and an oversized baseball cap that was overwhelmed by it. I thought he … Continue reading Just Plain Not Smart Enough

Start Your Year With A Smile – 2014 Edition

Welcome to Year 5 of my annual photo review. Once again, I went into the year afraid that I'd get nothing and once again I got lots. Once again, I had help from friends and family.  And once again there's the silly, the absurd, and the in-the-kind-of-bad-taste-that-appeals-mostly-to-inner-13-year-olds-like-me.  Don't say I didn't warn you. This year instead of themes, … Continue reading Start Your Year With A Smile – 2014 Edition

My Neighborhood Has a Moose! Does Yours?

  I usually pay attention to things with more redeeming social importance than this.  Except when I don't.  Which is often.  Including now. . . Yesterday and again today, I've been busy getting ready for a week of business travel.  Lots of desk time catching up, cleaning up and prepping.  And a curious distraction. There's … Continue reading My Neighborhood Has a Moose! Does Yours?
