About Me

65 years old. Lifelong democrat. Saw JFK in New Haven CT on election eve 1960. I was all of 5 years old. Cast my first vote for Jimmy Carter. Stayed up all night at the English Speaking Union I London to watch the returns. We celebrated the results about 9 AM London time. I cried the morning I learned Bobby Kennedy had been shot. I don't think I ever quite recovered, although President Obama's election helped a lot. These days I'm a moderate democrat and a cultural conservative. I miss the world of good manners, fancy dress and dancing cheek to cheek. Big TCM fan.

Today in Connecticut.

I was out and about a bit today: Lunch with a friend. We went to a Mexican place that was uncrowded. 40 year old bartender. Martini was good. All staff in masks. The golf course next door was packed. It was in the 50s today.
Went to Target. Tremendous crowd. 95 percent wearing masks. Found the Woolite my wife couldn't find anywhere.
Yale New Haven Hospital is at capacity but not overwhelmed yet. They have suspended all visitors. A day or two ago Dr. Howard Forman of Yale predicted Omicron will peak the 2nd week of January. Let's hope!
Plans for tonight: Open a bottle of Prosecco the wine store recommended. Watch The Thin Man marathon on TCM. Fall asleep before midnight.
Happy New Year!🥳
