Spurs & Stuff

Moving from NY to San Antonio in 1993 was a major lifestyle change for me & my family (my wife, Laurie & our 9 y/o daughter, Heather)… …in, oh, so many ways!!! The “pace” was perceptibly slower down South, which I actually found to be a welcome change after 37 hectic years in the Big…

Damn Gringo!

A few months back, my daughter, Heather, brought home some outstanding tamales for dinner… …her buddy’s Kadillac tamales (chicken, spinach, jalapeño, cream cheese)! They were incredible!

Broadway

One of the best things about growing up & living in the “greatest city in the world” (New York, NY…so great, they named it twice!) was Broadway! Between “going into the city”, i.e, traveling into Manhattan, when I lived in NY (Brooklyn…Holbrook in Long Island, exit 61…Staten Island) or traveling back to NY from wherever…

Card Skimmers

I’m Soooooo Old…

Just saw a FB post saying that anyone born before 1998 came before Google. Ah, that’s nuthin’, trust me! I came before the Internet. And, actually, when I stop to think about it, I also preceded … Touch-Tone… 8-track cartridges, cassettes & CDs… Seat belt laws… (Note: Pls 🙋🏼‍♀️ 🙋🏻‍♂️if you knew that I attended…

Facebook Helpful Hints

OK, let’s do this one more time… No, you’ve NEVER been limited to seeing only 25 of your 5,327,409 friends’ posts on your news reel. Think about it. No, FB has NOT changed its algorithm. As long as you react to, and comment on, others’ posts, then you’ll start seeing each other’s posts on your…

I ❤️ New York

I found this piece today that kinda describes pretty well what it means to be “from New York”. And when they say that, they mean NYC, not necessarily the state.   “I am a New Yorker. I may no longer live in the five boroughs or on the Island or Upstate. I may now live…
