Oh Where has the time gone?

Just realzied my last post was more than 2 weeks ago. Well, let's see. Last week I worked over 73 hours and so far this week it's been 43. I know. It's my own fault. I chose this line of work.

I will repeat my challenge: anyone who can help me come up with a business idea for upstate I will reward handsomely. I didn't have an angioplasty & stent put in just to repeat the stress all over again.

I am by no means an astute student of politics, but it seems to me that the only way for Joe Lieberman to distance himself from Ned Lamont is to become more and more like a Republican, hence the recent equating the London story with the war in Iraq. He's starting to sound like Dick Cheney, which cannot sound too sexy to the voters of Connecticut. As the democrats continue to pile on and beg him to get out of the race, he will get crankier & crankier.

Should be an interesting few months, especially as Lamont does a little tacking to the center.

The insight of a 2 year old

As we try to cook healthy in this house, we (I say we but Sarah does all the cooking) eat a lot of kale, spinach & chard, almost always cooked.

Grace refers to these dishes at "hot salad."

Gracilocks and the Three Bears

Grace has decided to name her stuffed bears.

First, there is Brother Bill. He is largely untouched. Also occasionally known as Fluffy.

2nd Bear,who tends to stay downstairs is called "Mike."

But her most coveted bear, the one who she can sometimes be heard screaming his name throughout the house is... "Medium bear." He is not her smallest bear, and not her largest.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: We have been informed that Fluffy & Brother Bill are not the same bear. Apparently Fluffy is indeed a fluffier bear given to Grace by her Aunt Jennifer. We regret the error.

Caribbean Wet TShirt Contest

As you may know, we are having a heat wave here in NYC. Yesterday after Grace got up from her nap, I took her to the park, where there is a playground that has a splashy, sprinkler type area. I expected that the playground would be mobbed, but alas, most folks must have been hiding indoors with the AC on. Basically it was me & a bunch of nannies and their charges who were wisely enjoying the sprinklers. I can't say it was exactly like a trip to Scores.
