Kingston: The IBM Years

I’ve happily relocated back to my hometown of New Paltz but there’s always been a little part of me that’s wondered why now? I’m part of New Paltz High School’s class of 1995 and when I graduated I couldn’t wait to get out! There was a depressed feeling throughout the Hudson Valley as if a …

Paul Green Rock Academy

If you follow my blog you know the category ‘Got Kids’ will serve up stories about everything kids friendly in the Hudson Valley. A recent story assignment for my ‘real job’ at the Innovation Trail made me consider changing this category title to ‘Where was This Sh*t When I was a Kid?’ Tweet

Tin Roof Sessions

Dusk in New Paltz is usually quiet time, particularly on a Sunday night but on a residential street in the heart of the village a converted garage is the venue for a mini-house concert. It’s called the Tin Roof Sessions, named for the tin roof over the detached garage that plays triple duty as a …

My New York Home

And you may ask yourself… Well, how did I get here?   Revealing your financial life is in many ways, the final fig leaf. It’s the equivalent of standing naked in a room of overly judgmental, highly critical Monday-morning quarterbacks who are all too happy to point out every ripple, bump, blemish and scar on …

Color, Line & Form: Art Show

Lets Talk About Ticks

Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Alice. I met Alice while hiking on the mountainous property of the Cary Institute in Millbrook of Dutchess County. I named her Alice after Ecologist Dr. Rick Ostfeld explained that she is indeed a female due to the red coloring on her body. And yes, she is a tick. Tweet

Living around so many artists and crafters (is that what you call them?) can lead even the most untalented person to look at something and think ‘I can make that.’ Those thoughts are usually limited to clothing, jewelry, furniture or at least upholstery… but now it’s plastic tchotchkes too. Tweet
