When you grow up in a two bedroom apartment like I did in Queens NY, seldom are there opportunities for a kid to learn basic home improvement or repair tricks of the trade. Unless you were the son of the building's super, which I wasn't by the way, most apartment raised kids don't have a clue on how to fix anything. I have been a home owner in Westchester NY now for seventeen years and can shamefully, but honestly say, not once during that time, have I ever fixed, installed, repaired, refurbished, adjusted, tinkered with, or altered anything in my home myself. I wish that weren't the case and I know my wife wonders why she never put home competency on her checklist for requisite qualities in a man who she would ever marry.... Read more
In the summer, I love making use of fresh, local corn but I have recently become obsessed with using corn nuts in all my dishes for an extra crunch. As always, I have added in seeds and dried fruit for extra flavor. Make a big batch and enjoy for a few meals! ... Read more
My 10-year-old son Drew suffered a concussion this year. It was a freak accident when he was snowboarding - and he WAS wearing a helmet. This experience made me much more aware of the growing problem of concussions in youth sport. ... Read more
How many arguments did you get into with your parents growing up about not monopolizing the house phone? Call waiting was the greatest invention as far as my mom was concerned. I could no longer be oblivious to the fact that someone else might be trying to contact her while I was yapping to friends about nonsense. Parents and kids just don't have those fights anymore. The busy signal has become virtually obsolete and since anyone and everyone has their own mobile phone, there is no need to quibble about whose call is more important. And while technology has eliminated that problem, it has created one far more severe. Those smartphones are creating a generation of socially awkward misfits that only know how to express themselves with their thumbs and not their mouths. I am shocked and somewhat dismayed by the inability of most teenagers to talk on the phone. I don't want to pat myself on the back too much, but I have actually been able to get my daughter to talk to her friends on the phone and even call potential employers for summer job opportunities. I'm still working on it with my son, but it is definitely moving in the right direction. ... Read more
I recently read an article in the New York Times about the generation that's striving to make a difference in our world. They're called Generation Z and I recently met an extraordinary teen who embodies the Generation Z spirit -- Jack Jones, an 18 year old high school senior and student athlete who has travelled to Africa every summer where he has learned the importance of preserving and protecting nature. The youngest of four children, Jack has just published a inspiring new children's book that helps raise awareness and educate children and their parents about the importance of saving Black Rhinos. ...
