Disco Inferno, or my first job out of college…

As we move into the early months of spring, this year’s college graduates are thinking about what their next move will be. Those with great grades, important degrees, who attended ivy league schools, will have an easy time; in fact – they probably have those jobs lined up right now! Others who’ve “attended” college, have liberal arts or majors with… Read more »

It’s Groundhog Day all over again; meeting Bill Murray

Groundhog Day recently passed us by a couple of days ago on February 2nd, and while we were all trying to decipher what Punxsutawney Phil saw or didn’t see – it promptly snowed in the northeast. There’s something scary about an entire country planning their lives on the prediction of a groundhog. Punxy Phil actually looks like a better candidate… Read more »

New Year’s Desolation’s, er Resolutions 2016

We’re part way into the first month of the New Year and it’s that time to start looking at the variety of self-improvement resolutions we made just a couple of weeks ago which are slowly and inevitably becoming obsolete.

His parents, not well of mind, decided he should carry the nickname Booth which often times created much confusion down at the… Read more »

Hudson’s View – The Meal in the Bowl goes round and round…

Finally…fall is upon us! The leaves are falling, the squirrels are throwing nuts at me from the trees and Woody, our woodchuck, is almost reachable as he’s moving slowly after adding a few pounds this summer. The best news is that we can put our bathing suits away for a while and not be so self-conscious. My brown fur suit… Read more »

Paper Route and Puppy Rout

  With Newspaper Carrier Day on September 4th comes both a celebration of the job for many individuals, but also horrid memories for others like myself; who felt the wrath of both customers and creatures while working my paper route. My introduction to the newspaper game came at a young age in my hometown in somewhat rural Westchester County, New… Read more »

Old Family Recipe

Wally   August 29, 2015   No Comments on Old Family Recipe

When one gets older the concept of cooking comes much more easily. Like life, much of developing one’s cooking ability comes with a bit of “in the field” experience and a great degree of common sense.
