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.

Manhattan's narrowest townhouse for sale for $5 million.

Not for me, but I guess it will be for someone:


As delta wanes in the south it's headed for the northeast!

I know this is Scott Gottlieb, a former Trump official, but he's not an idiot, and he says delta will head north soon after wreaking havoc in the south. Not what I want to hear living in New England. Worth a look:

Lullaby of Birdland- Mariah Carey

The jazz club Birdland in NYC is open now!

Partying Returns to the Hamptons

Social benefits returned to the Hamptons on the unofficial last weekend in Summer (Labor Day Weekend). Large parties and the guests wearing no masks. Maybe they should have listened to the wisdom of Debbie Bancroft: Stay home and learn to cook! (Who doesn't love Debbie?)


The Plot Thickens in SC murder case

A prominent South Carolina lawyer whose wife and son were murdered in June was forced to resign from his family's century old law firm after the discovery that millions of dollars were missing from firm accounts just before he was found shot in the head on a lonely country road.


V Day Stomp - Four Clefs

1945. Almost over.

Is there anything to natural immunity from Covid?

I mean the situation where someone gets Covid and survived. Do they then have protection from getting Covid again? Is the protection as good as the protection from the vaccine? Do we know anything about this? Just wondering

Joe Biden the Catholic

Interesting article up on Politico about the President and his religion. Worth a read if you are interested:


NYT: Crypto Banking


Several stories in the Times in the last few days about crypto energy use and now the scary new world of crypto banking: Banks that make deposits and loans against crypto deposits.
Apparently they pay interest of up to 8 percent on deposits, but totally unregulated, no deposit insurance, subject to Cyber raids and the bank suddenly disappearing.
I don't understood any of it but the whole idea of Cyber banking and cyber currency to me is pretty scary. Risky hardly begins to describe it.
Paywalled unfortunately, unless you have a free article left

Dancing in the Dark - Artie Shaw

May I have this dance?
