Its the Fourth of July and I’m supposed to be in England. At the last minute a business situation came up that prevented me from going, but Louise went and is, at this very moment, renewing her Englishness. I’m missing it because there are very few things in life more...

Louise and I leave for two weeks in Italy today. No, not today; it’s actually next week, but I thought it must be today because of all the running around, the gathering of clothes, the waiting suitcases, and the panicked look in her eye that says she knows we’re missin...

The move back north is now complete, and we are safely ensconced in our home on Cape Cod.   The lawn has been cleaned up. The pool is being opened today. The cherry trees are just beginning to bloom, and everything is starting to feel fresh and new.

They finally did it. They’ve gone to far, and I can no longer keep silent. This time I blame it on the liberals and the political correctness dweebs.

The Boy Scouts are no more. They are now just the Scouts.

Girls can now join the Boy Scouts. Oh, excuse me—the Scouts...

How to Make a Good Decision

Its cold, windy, and rainy today, and I’m going to want something hearty for dinner. A quick check of the freezer offers several options: filet mignon, shrimp, goat meat, pork loin, and … wait a minute … are those oxtails? Decision made. Now I have to decide how to coo...

Once again we have a gender-bending role reversal in my house. I am in the kitchen making meatballs, tomato sauce, and a goat curry for dinner tonight. The Lovely Louise is out replanting plants, digging holes, and generally bulldozing our yard. This works out remarkab...

There’s a fish near me and I hate him.

I don’t know what kind of fish it is, but it’s probably either a snook or a large snapper. This fish teases me and then taunts me. I know right where he lives and I keep visiting him. He doesn’t seem to care. He just looks at me...

It’s that time of year again—the time when we pack up the house in Florida and head back to Cape Cod. As I write this, the temperature in Cape Coral is 84 degrees, while the temperature up north is 44 degrees. Clearly this raises the question, what the hell am I doing...

In 1990 I went to Schladming, Austria to fix a resort that the bank I worked for had just taken over because it was failing miserably. It was there that I met some of the most unforgettable people in my life, and I thought I’d tell you about them.

The first people I m...
