I hope your holidays were happy, fun and blessed.  I was fortunate to have been surrounded with family and friends for a week before Christmas and afterwards, made some new friends, Annette and Fr. John, and met my old friend, Pat, from Roanoke, VA enjoying a five-hour chat fest with her.  It was a very special holiday season. 







So now, as I write this on the Eve of the New Year 2016, I wonder if this year, instead of resolutions, I should jot down “goals”.  Every year, the diet and exercise is a given. In 2016, let me begin with “patience”.  I sometimes become irritable because things don’t always seem to go the way I imagine they would.  Do any of you, my gentle readers, identify with me?  My goal is to count to ten or

How many of you saw “Star Wars:  The Force Awakens”?  Did you go to Star Wars Trivia Night at the Liberty Tavern or a tree lighting or Interfaith Prayer Group or Lessons and Carols at St. Paul’s Memorial Episcopal Church or gather donate toys, food and/or clothes to the clothing drive at the Joan & Alan Bernikow Jewish Community Center?  Whatever you did last week, this week try not to lose it--your patience with friends or family or that stranger who cut you off in the Mall parking lot, your nerve with telling someone you love them or your mind with all the details of putting together a holiday feast.  Please remember that not everyone is making plans to celebrate.  Some have experienced loss or are ill and can use an invitation to go out for coffee or

The Holiday Stroll along the Forest Avenue Business Improvement District (BID) last Thursday was a blast. Santa Claus was out and about.  Families were happy and friendly--tasting food, drinking hot cocoa, coffee and even wine at Jean’s Fine Wines and taking pictures with Santa.  This was an enjoyable event, one which I recommend to all my gentle readers.  Shop locally this holiday season. Small businesses are the backbone of our Island.  Below are some of the photos taken at the Stroll.
