It was great working with the school districts, the teachers, PTA members and parents to highlight the wonderful school districts. Because the communities are so active, we received an abundance of articles and pictures this year from the school districts. Although we are behind with getting them published due to space constraints, we promise they will all get in. Please continue to enjoy the coverage of the local schools throughout the summer.
As Roger Federer and Andy Roddick battled it out with tennis rackets at Wimbledon, I realized that both these gentlemen could be role models for ourselves and for our children. Both are happily married (whatever that means) and speak intelligently and have a reasonable lifestyle.
Nassau County Legislator Judy Jacobs (D-Woodbury) warns residents to be wary of email notices that appear to be from the IRS promising money. The IRS never initiates contact with taxpayers through email.

We truly live in a wonderful community, filled with so much activity and so many community-minded people, and our Farmers’ Markets are no exception. Each weekend from now until well into the fall, one can find organic, locally grown produce, as well as crafts and gifts whether you visit Bayville, Locust Valley, Glen Cove, or Old Westbury. We are surrounded by local farms, as well as people who make and sell handmade crafts and other sundries, so be sure to visit:

As Lorraine and I walked through the Metropolitan Museum of Art with our 3-year-old grandson Lewis in a stroller, he pointed to the Modigliani and shouted, “Picture in Grandma’s house.” Lewis was right. We have many Modigliani paintings (prints of course) hanging on our walls.
The U.S. Open is coming to Bethpage. Great! Oh wait – more traffic, closed roads, a longer commute to work and more people on an already over populated Long Island. Uhhh.
In the spring Alley Pond Park is a magnet for migrating birds offering them the gift of rest and food on their long journeys north. A few years ago during the spring migration I started to walk it with serious birders who know not just its paths but also its plentiful trails off the beaten path, which are rich with bird life.
Seven hundred and fifty miles southeast of New York lies the tranquil archipelago of Bermuda. Our huge ship, the Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas landed at the Royal Naval Dockyard, on the western tip of Bermuda. Lorraine and her two sisters and their husbands and I arrived on the 400-year anniversary celebration of Bermuda’s settlement.
