It’s back to school this week for most students after a long hot, hot, hot summer!  Please remind your kids to be aware of other children who may not feel comfortable starting a new school or a new class.

Remind them if they see something that doesn’t look or feel right, they should tell their teacher, parents or caregivers. I wish them all a successful, happy, safe school year!  Check out the first day of school pictures I unearthed from the 50's.  Big sister, Ellen; Me starting kindergarten leaving little brother, Mark, at home; cousin Tom Urgo with me starting 1st

Were you an attendee at the “Silent Disco” at Snug Harbor?  One of my gentle readers told me he had a blast—it was like nothing he had every experienced.  Did you catch “Ghost Busters” under the stars on Saturday?   I am embarrassed to say I have not attended even one Yoga class this summer, but that doesn’t mean it’s not therapeutic, relaxing and fun.  Try one of the Yoga classes I listed in past blogs.  Everything becomes clearer in your life; you will not be disappointed.  Maybe I’ll see you there soon.

Today is the day to join New Day Toastmasters, which meets the first Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. at Regina McGinn Education Center, 475 Seaview Ave.  It’s never too late to learn new skills—namely public speaking.  Guests and new members are
