My Blog

8-18-18, 11:02am.  (Wow....I really haven't been here in a while!) I learned that today is the most popular day of this year to get married. Cool, eh?  Well, this summer has been wet. We haven't had a period of 5 days without rain all summer.  And some of the storms have been huge with flash flooding here in NJ...even JazzFest was cancelled. And California is on fire and the UK is having a huge drought. My work is great, as OpenSlate continues an incredible run as the industry standard for brand safety and brand suitability on YouTube.  It is so nice to have a great, rewarding job. (Thanks for asking.)  Well, peace out for now...and maybe for a few years (based on my past track record).

Apr. 6, 2014, 7:04pm: Wow, I haven't been here in a while!  Though I do make a concerted effort to update the home page of this site at least 2-3X/week.  Well, it's springtime here in the Northern Hemisphere and I've finally got around to some exterior spring cleaning (i.e., putting the snow shovel, salt melt, snow blower away; and taking out the plants, the deck furniture, the wind chimes, the planters.)  This past winter was a crazy one - massive snow and extreme cold seemed to be weekly occurences...but the spring has sprung!

Aug. 30, 2012, 8:56pm:  Summer is winding down and while I love September - football, fall foliage, the impending ski season, sweater weather - it also signals back-to-school, and with that comes change.  My oldest is off to college already, so we're down to three of us (half-empty nesters), and the whole house arising each morning at once.  The slow pace of the summer quickens in fall like a squirrel gathering nuts for the winter.  I will survive...I pray my Giants do.

Dec. 18, 2011, 11:56am: Penning my annual Christmas Letter and wrestling with how not to anger and alienate my friends, family and co-workers.  You are all so guilty of so much humourous fodder that I have to bite my tongue...uh, tape my fingers!?! keep from incriminating the guilty!!!

Nov. 12, 2011, 10:54pm:  "If you build it they will come."  I have spent the better part of this lazy Saturday watching college football by a fire and constructing this website; getting all the elements just right.  I'm not quite sure exactly what I want this to become and I'm curious if anyone will come visit.  All I know is that I have a lot of work to do, but hope this will turn into something fun, informative and useful!  Peace!
