TZB: A Bridge Too Far, Once Again

This mighty waterway, not a western route to Asia through the Northwest Passage as Hendrick Hudson hoped it would be in 1609, but to the great port of Albany and so through canals, lakes and on land to the American frontier and all the greatness and achievement of that, remains as beautiful as the explorer found it. Once assaulted by industrial discharge, its waters are these days enjoyed by boaters and those who live in expensive housing along the shore.

COMMENTARY: Strolling of the Great White Waya Back When Twin Towers Dominated Lower Manhattan

Blaring carols, the ringing of bells, the hurry to wrap up shopping, and the thoughts about a Happy New Year inevitably take me a veteran film/theatre writer back to a snowy few days after a special New Year. Accompanied by a bus load of thespians and professors, I journeyed through a treacherous blizzard on a Greyhound bus to New York City for an M.U. Theatre individualistic version of a Broadway adventure.

The Vampire State Building

For a hands-on Grandma there is nothing more gratifying than being able to bond with your grandchildren while they are young enough to accept the extra love and attention without an electronic gadget in their hands, around their necks, in their ears, pockets or lying on a table nearby. I began taking my grandchildren on short trips-lunches and outings to the beach or park on a once-a-week basis.
