Is that really me?

That's the question I had to ask myself as I gazed at my reflection in the window of a a subway car for the first time in many months bereft of sweatshirts, jackets or sweaters. The self delusion that at least some of that bulk I saw reflected back at me was the result of dressing in layers in order to keep warm. Well some of it was. but not nearly as much as I had convinced myself was the reason. Self delusion shattered I guess I will have to first find my scale, then shovel off the layer of dust that has accumulated since the last time I used it and then (gasp!) step on it. I do not look forward to this!

First Word

With so much going on in the News lately it is hard to know where to begin. So I won't begin anywhere except to say hello and intoduce myself a little. I live in Queens with my wife of almost 32 years. We have a grown daughter and a grandson whom you will probably get to know a little better as time goes on. I have no particular agenda or plan for this blog at the moment. I will be posting on pretty much anything from current events, religion, book reviews, entertainment and pretty much anything that strikes me as worth writing about. We may diagree on some things, agree on others and even search together for the answers to some others. Most of all I hope we have fun. Thanks for visiting and come back soon.
