Long before the fort took over the defunct race track up river ship spotting was serious business from the barrier beach that reached well into the wet spot where the Hudson and Raritan Rivers met.
Towers were built and manned by seasoned spotters who lived on the weather beaten dunes way out at the end of what we called “The Hook”. There was little reason to spot ships if the intelligence gathered could not be sold to the speculators in NYC.
My little spot…Continue

The estuary of my youth was shared with the fort that had been a race track. Race tracks were more than race tracks during a time when horses were how people who could afford them got around. Horses were a commodity, and horsemen were too. Before magnetic telegraph riders carried messages...the railroads and telegraph changed this but not that much.
It’s obvious that between NYC and Philadelphia there was quite a horse trade, also lots of messages, messengers,…Continue

To Sink Into
I was like a sailor who left for the sea
When I got back there was nothing left for me
No tender words to set me free
The love of another was all she could see,
Like a little…Continue

Was Aldous merely speculative or visionary? I would say spot on!…Continue
Many would agree that Trump's aberrant attitude and behavior has made his administration a domestic abomination and an international laughing stock.
His approach and demeanor are so outrageous that he puts presidential provenance and decorum on new ground and unexplored territory on very nearly a daily basis...
So here's the question:
Is Trump setting attitudinal and behavioral precedents that will change the fundamental nature of the American Presidency?…Continue
Recently I listened to a woman who makes soap talk about the process and demonstrate it. What I learned was that she had only a rudimentary understanding of the actual chemistry, and had some almost religious beliefs about the addition of aromatic materials to the product. She was opposed to essential oils and in favor of fragrance soaps. She thought that essential oils could be dangerous. In the next few days I talked with a woman whose daughter sells essential oils. My friend's belief…Continue

Now, at first I thought, what’s the point, he’s been dead for over 40 years - but then it occurred to me that his closest advisors like Alex Jones have probably totally convinced him that Elvis…Continue
The price of a Presidential Medal of Freedom Award has gone up. Miriam Adelson got the award, after she and hubby Sheldon donated at least $100 million of their ill-gotten casino gain to the Republicans. That was this year alone. A small price to pay for such a prestigious award, particularly small in light of the fact the Adelson's may have profited by a billion or so from the Repugnant tax cut.…Continue
