NaBloPoMo

As the month of May draws to a close, I have to reflect on May's theme: photos.


Although I never used the NaBloPoMo prompts for the month, I think I explored the topic well.   Certainly I'm no professional photographer, but in this day and age, anyone with a cell phone camera and an internet connection can share their view of the world. 

I'm not going to claim that my photos were super terrific, but I did enjoy taking them and posting them

June's theme is Ready, Set, Go.  I'm not sure how that will work for me.  I'm not finding the writing prompts interesting or appealing. 

I'll just do my own thing, I guess, and see how it goes.

Weight Watchers

Much as I love my Fitbit, movement is only part of the equation.

I'm back at Weight Watchers.

I'm actually doing well on program.  I've lost 16 pounds since March. 

It's starting to feel good.

Walking!!!!

Yes, I'm really getting into the fitness thing. 

I was never much of a gym rat.  I disliked gym class, I was never any good at sports, I'm not very coordinated. I like swimming and walking. 

Six years ago, I lost 70 pounds.  Gained it all back, unfortunately, but at least I know how to do it...

I walked it off, with occasional forays into the pool.  Back then, I was still a member of the Y, could use their pool and their track, though I avoided the rooms with all the fancy equipment -- too insecure to use the treadmill or Stairmaster....

 I don't really have a place to go to swim these days, but walking...well, all you really need for walking is a comfortable pair of shoes.

In nice weather -- spring through fall -- you can walk almost anywhere.  go to the park, go to the beach, or just walk through your own neighborhood. 

I'll have to make a Plan B for the winter, of course, but that's months and months away.

In the meantime, I'm enjoying my strolls on the boardwalk.

Can I sing the praises of my Fitbit once again?  It keeps me honest and it keeps me motivated.  I've been walking a lot more since I put that thing on my wrist.  Maybe it's because I love electronic gadgets.

On the Twentieth Century

A very funny musical,  On The Twentieth Century, is currently playing on Broadway.  Book and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, music by Cy Colman, starring Kristin Chenoweth as Lily, and Peter Gallagher as Oscar, Andy Karl as Bruce, Mark Linn-Baker as Oliver, Michael McGrath as Owen and Mary Louise Wilson as Letitia.

Combining screwball comedy with beautiful song and dance, it tells the story of a behind-the-scenes relationship between Lily, a temperamental actress and Oscar, a bankrupt theatre producer. Oscar is responsible for Lily becoming an actress, but she left him and the theater to pursue a movie career in Hollywood. On a luxury train traveling from Chicago to New York, Oscar tries to convince the glamorous Hollywood star into playing the lead in his new, but not-yet-written play, and perhaps to rekindle their romance.

The revival was staged by Roundabout Theater.  Drew is a Roundabout subscriber, and got the offer for tickets long before the show opened.  I had seen the original 1978 production, which starred John Cullum (one of my favorites), Madeline Kahn, Kevin Kline and Imogene Coca.  Of course I wanted to see the revival, so we got our tickets long before anyone knew how good the revival would be -- 5 Tony nominations (the original had 9 nominations and won 5 Tonys).

Some of the highlights of the show: the tap dancing porters forming a "train"; Letitia's big song, "Repent" (where she is convinced that there are "dirty doings going on" everywhere); and Lily's overblown "Veronique".

The night we saw the show, one of the set pieces malfunctioned, and the actors incorporated that problem into the story and made it humorous.

Chenoweth deserves the Tony (I hope she wins), Gallagher should have been nominated.   I loved seeing Mark Linn-Baker again, he's always been a favorite of mine.

Definitely a goodnight of theater.

(We saw the show Memorial Day weekend, which is also Fleet Week in New York City.  Good to see all those men and women in uniform enjoying a visit to the Big Apple!)

John's Pizza

John's of Times Square on Urbanspoon

A return visit to John's of Times Square.  Conveniently located on 44th Street in what was once a church, this is a lovely spot for pre- or post- theater dinner.    The place is always busy.  We got there at 5 PM on a Saturday and had a 45 minute wait.

Although the place is famed for its brick oven pizza, this time around we opted for chicken dishes.  I had chicken scampi served over a bed of pasta, Drew had chicken marsala.  Both were excellent.  We shared an order of garlic bread with mozzarella -- also wonderful. 

Service is, well...adequate.  Nothing to complain about, but nothing remarkable either.

Two things to keep in mind, if you go.

The wait staff wear shirts that say "no slices".  And they mean it.  If you choose pizza, you must buy a whole pie.  They do not sell pizza by the slice. 

And if you're going to drink a lot of soda, order a pitcher.  As per the menu, they do not offer free refills on soft drinks. 

But the food -- especially the pizza -- is worth the trip.

Another this and that

So Becca spent a week in Punta Cana with the boyfriend I'm not supposed to know about.  From the pictures she posted on Instagram, he looks like a nice young man.  I suppose I'll get to meet him soon.  She says she had a great vacation.

Jen didn't see her boyfriend at all this past weekend.  He bartends on Fire Island, and it gets crazy busy on holiday weekends.  She spent her time with her friends. Lovely picture on Instagram of Jen and one of  her friends playing miniature golf.

Drew's annual Memorial Day barbecue was fun.  Smaller crowd than in previous years.  Shelley didn't come, of course.  Maybe for the July 4th party Drew will take Marvin out of the nursing facility on a day pass, but this time around ... And other friends have moved away.  Drew grilled burgers and hot dogs,  I made the pasta salad and the caprese salad, we had chips and dips and cheese and crackers, and cake and ice cream for dessert.  Too much food!  But good company, good times. 

Poor Duchess spent the whole day locked in the spare bedroom.  We didn't want her underfoot, especially when everyone was going in and out of the house all day.  She is not an "outdoor cat".  She got her chance to socialize later in the evening, when most of the guests had gone home and the party had moved to the living room. 

I didn't take any photos at the party. But we all spent a good deal of time sharing pictures of our cats and dogs.  So after the party was over, I took a picture of Duchess and posted it on Facebook, and tagged the friends who were at the barbecue.

Doesn't she just look like she's about to make a sarcastic comment?

Tomorrowland (spoilers)

"There's a great big beautiful tomorrow
Shining at the end of every day
There's a great big beautiful tomorrow
And tomorrow is just a dream away ..."

Let's be very clear about this: I would be content to watch George Clooney read a phone book. So any movie starring Clooney is fine with me.

Better still is when the movie is actually enjoyable. And yes, I enjoyed "Tomorrowland", Disney's latest movie based on a theme part attraction.

A bit of background:

I am from the generation that watched "Wonderful World of Disney" every Sunday night. We heard Uncle Walt tell us what a wonderful world we'd have in the future. We saw him talk about EPCOT, which he planned to build in Florida.

And because I grew up on Long Island, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to visit the New York World's Fair in 1964 and 1965. "it's a Small World", the "Carrousel of Progress", audio animatronics, Disney was a large part of the Fair.

The movie opens with the two main characters, Frank (Clooney) and Casey (Britt Robertson) telling their story. Frank's story begins in 1964, when, as a young boy, he takes the bus to Corona, Queens ... I knew even before I saw the Unisphere... He was headed to the World's Fair. Young Frank is an inventor, and is recruited to travel to Tomorrowland...

Fast forward to the present, where high school student Casey is growing up in Florida. Her father, a NASA engineer, is in charge of dismantling a launching platform. Casey dreams of fixing the world's problems. Casey is given a mysterious pin from the New York World's Fair, which shows her a vision of the future. Chased by audio animatronic soldiers, Casey must seek out Frank and journey to Tomorrowland and (you guessed it) solve the world's problems.

The movie presents a vision of the future full of hope and optimism, consistent with Walt's dream. The villain of the story (Hugh Laurie) isn't a truly evil man, he's just lost the spirit of Tomorrowland.

You can see the effect of the Disney-Lucasfilm merger in the special effects. Nice touch.

And I kept imagining the ride Disney will build for the parks ...

Fun film. Add a star if you're a Disney fan.

Lovely spot for a wedding

Sunken Meadow has a lovely restaurant/catering facility, right on the boardwalk.  The other night I spotted...well, some lucky bride and groom will have a fantastic wedding album.

And even more Jones Beach treasures

American Airpower Museum

A bit of local history.



Republic Aviation was, at one time, one of Long Island's largest employers.  In the 1940's, Republic's defense plant in Farmingdale turned out fighter planes for the war effort.  Republic continued to produce military aircraft throughout the Cold War, ceasing operations in 1982.    Today the site is a small, regional airport.



Located in a hanger at Republic is a hidden treasure, the American Airpower Museum.  The focus, as you might imagine, is on WW II aircraft.    The museum owns several aircraft, including a few that still fly -- there are days when, for a fee, you can actually book a flight on one of the planes.



A section of the museum is devoted to the WASPS.  During the war, there was a shortage of men trained to fly military aircraft.  So that every available male pilot could be sent overseas into battle, women pilots flew the planes from the manufacturer to shipping ports.    The women in this group were known as the WASPS.



It's a small museum, takes only an hour or two to see everything.  But it was a fun way to spend a Saturday morning.

The Who!!!!!!!

So it was Wednesday morning, and I was getting ready for work, when I got the text message.

Want to go to the Who concert tonite?

The Who?  One of the most iconic bands of the 1960's?  Source of "My Generation", "Baba O'Riley" and "Pinball Wizard"?

No, thanks, I'll just stay home and watch "Survivor". 

Yeah, the sarcasm is dripping, isn't it?

It seems one of Drew's friends had tickets for the show, but couldn't go, so he offered the tickets to Drew.  Nassau Coliseum, decent seats, of course Drew was interested. 

A little aside about the Coliseum.  Hofstra University, my alma mater, is just down the road from the Coliseum, and my law school days coincided  with the Islanders' "Dynasty" years.  I'm sad to see the Islanders move to Brooklyn next year., but the planned renovations didn't meet the team's needs.  I'm trying to decide whether to see Billy Joel close out the Coliseum before the renovations -- we've seen him at the Garden twice since his residency began.  But he's got a special relationship with the Coliseum (they retired "his number", after all), and considering all the guests he had for the Last Play at Shea, I'm sure the concert will be something special.

 photo 20150520_175243.jpg photo 20150520_192454.jpg We got there early and had dinner in the sports bar on the lower level.  (No point in writing a review, the place is going to close in August, after all.). A little on the expensive side, but the burgers were juicy, the fries crisp, the service attentive.

First up, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.  She's not only a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, she's also in the Long Island Hall.  She sang ten songs, most notably "Cherry Bomb", "Crimson and Clover" and (of course) "I Love Rock 'n' Roll".
 photo 20150520_195937.jpg photo 20150520_193215.jpg photo 20150520_193705.jpg
And then it was time for The Who to take the stage.  Roger Daltry and Pete Townsend were in good voice.  And by the end of the evening I'd lost my voice.

 photo 20150520_213430.jpg photo 20150520_213341.jpg photo 20150520_210944.jpg photo 20150520_205221.jpg Interesting -- Zak Starkey (Ringo Starr's son) is touring with the band, playing the drums.  Like father, like son.
 photo 20150520_204853.jpg
21 songs, including "Who Are You?", "I Can See For Miles", "My Generation", "You Better You Bet" and "Pinball Wizard".  They closed the show with Baba O'Rikey" and "Won't Get Fooled Again".

This concert was an unexpected event, but it was incredible, it was amazing.  I'm so happy we were able to go.

Red Lobster

So it was time to revisit Red Lobster.

It's one of our favorite chains, we were here last winter, and then again last weekend.

Until recently, if you came to Red Lobster at dinner time on a weekend, you'd expect to wait 30-45 minutes for a table. Recently, however, although the restaurant is still fairly busy, we've been seated as soon as we walked in. I don't understand why this is happening. Although the menu has changed again, the quality remains the same.

Cheddar biscuits hit our table even before our drink order arrived.the garden salad was fresh and contained a nice mix of lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, etc.

We each ordered a "bake" -- steamed shellfish served in a covered casserole dish. Mine was the Maine lobster bake -- mini lobster tails, potatoes and corn on the cob. Very simple, well prepared, delicious. His contained a lobster tail, shrimp, scallops and mussels served over pasta. Also excellent.

Looking forward to my leftovers ...

the pollen tsunami

Almost everyone I know is suffering this allergy season, some more than usual. 
They're calling it  "the pollen tsunami". 

This past winter was very snowy.  The moisture is good for plant growth, everything is growing in abundance.  Very lush vegetation.

Winter was also very cold, and lingered well into spring.  You know what happens when there's a delayed spring?  All the plants that were supposed to bloom in the early spring bloomed late, so as soon as the weather got warm, everything bloomed at once.  Very pretty, of course, but deadly if you're sensitive to pollen.

My best friend these days is my little bottle of Claritin. and even then...well, I know it's allergy season just by the way I feel.

He's a real hunter

I got such a lovely  gift from Redford the other day.  A bunny.

Or rather, what was left of the  poor rabbit after Redford caught it, killed it and feasted on it.

The cat spent the rest of the day lying on the lawn, in the sun, enjoying his "food coma".  Seriously, if we hadn't seen his chest rise and fall with his breathing, we would have thought the poor cat was dead.  He really enjoyed his little hunt.

While I got to clean up the remains from the front porch.  Just lovely.

internet friends/real friends

I had to unfriend someone on Facebook this week.  I'm not happy about it, but I need to preserve my sanity. 

One of Drew's oldest and dearest friends, a guy I've known for many years, turned out to be a vile internet troll.  He's very opinionated. So am I.  And we don't agree on very much at all.  Which would have been OK, except that he had to start an argument with me every time I posted something he didn't agree with. 

And his posts didn't just put forth his opinion, they were personal attacks on me. 

His internet persona  -- He's opinionated, smug and condescending.  If he doesn't like something, it's "garbage" or "overblown", and he cannot understand why everyone likes it.  If you post that you like something, and he doesn't like it, he questions your competency.  He routinely calls out celebrities for their bad behavior -- unless he likes them, then he gives them a "pass".    If you prove him factually incorrect, he cannot admit that he is wrong, that it "doesn't matter".

He has the "right" to express himself, and if you delete something form your wall, you are "censoring him".

This is how he talks to everyone on the internet.  But for some reason, he upped his game when it came to me.


And he doesn't have a clue  that's he's being rude.  His wife is a lovely person, I have no clue how she puts up with him.


I'll admit, I can be a witch too, and I said some things I shouldn't have.  But I know when 'm out of line, and I apologized.  I didn't want to kill a friendship.

but the words "I'm sorry" never come out of his mouth.

He pushed me to the limit.  Putting him on my restricted list wasn't effective, I somehow slipped up and allowed him to see a post or two.  You guessed it -- he can't pass up an opportunity to go after me.

So I unfriended him.  I'm done, I'm so done.

Which is going to be awkward when Drew suggests we get together with them.

Another this and that


Becca is going on vacation with "friends" (read that:  the boyfriend I'm not supposed to know about.)  They are headed to the Dominican Republic for a week of tropical sun and sand.

Meanwhile Jen is planning her summer weekends -- her boyfriend will be tending bar on Fire Island again, which means she'll be hanging out at the beach if she wants to see him. 

Marvin's status is still in limbo.  There was some talk of sending him back to Shelley's house, despite all the issues, but he'd have to have a home health care aide.  since it take a couple of months to get approval for an aide, he's staying at the nursing facility for the time being.  Drew is still exploring ways to make it permanent.  In the meantime, he bought some summer clothes and sneakers for Marvin -- Shelley hasn't bothered to bring any of Marvin's things to the facility.

She's still convinced, by the way, that Drew is "trying to take Marvin away from her," that he's being spiteful.  She's not speaking to Drew, she unfriended me on Facebook.  She's alienating a number of her friends, people who think Marvin should stay in the nursing facility.  It's sad, really.

 Even though Marvin's situation is temporarily resolved, we still have the Marc drama and some health issues to be concerned about.   Marc has been better lately, he actually talks to Drew once in awhile.  He even mowed the lawn.

The Fitbit is probably one of the best things I've purchased for myself in a while.  Not only have I gotten beautiful photos of Sunken Meadow and Jones Beach, I've gotten into the habit of walking.  I linked my Fitbit account to my Weight Watchers etools account.  It's really paying off, too.  I've lost 15 pounds since the beginning of March.   It's starting to feel really good.  I've still got some health issues going on, but I'm feeling good.

Drew, on the other hand, is literally counting the days until the end of the school year.  He's not doing well lately, he's looking forward to some down time when the school year ends.

I'm also really looking forward  to the summer --  summer concerts, baseball games, barbecues.  Hard to believe the season kicks off next weekend, with Drew's annual Memorial Day barbecue  --my famous caprese salad., pasta salad, burger, hot dogs, good friends.  We're still thinking "staycation", but Drew raised the possibility of a short road trip towards the end  of July.  He mentioned New England, maybe Maine.  We will have to see how things go.

Yes, things are starting to feel good...

Audra McDonald

Audra McDonald  is quickly becoming one of my favorite Broadway performers. 

If You haven't had the pleasure of seeing her on Broadway, you may remember her as Miss Farrell in the 1999 television version of Annie, or as the Mother Abbess in The Sound of Music Live in 2013. 

We had the pleasure of seeing her in Porgy and Bess on Broadway a few years ago, so when we heard she would be doing a concert at the Tilles Center, we had to get tickets.

She sang for almost two hours without an intermission.  She sang Cole Porter, Gershwin, Lerner and Lowe, Kander and Ebb, Sondheim.  She also likes to include songs from lesser-known Broadway composers and lyricists. 

Of course she included "Summertime" from Porgy and Bess. "I Could Have Danced All Night" from My Fair Lady  became an audience sing along.  Loved her rendition of "Over the Rainbow".

She talked about her causes -- Covenant House (for homeless teens) and marriage equality.

Here she is, singing one of the songs she performed the other night:

summer...I can taste it...

Literally.

One of my favorite summer dishes is pasta salad.

It's easy to prepare, very forgiving.  Cook your pasta, add veggies, dress.  Voila, pasta salad.

I have adapted a recipe I got from my sister.  Her pasta salad is famous in our family.

I  like  to use rotelle or shells.  I'll usually throw in a bag of frozen peas (I don't cook them -- I defrost them by placing them in the colander where I'm about to drain my pasta, and let the cooking water do the rest), shredded carrots, red onion, and bell peppers.  I don't measure the vegetables, I just cut them up and add them until it looks like "enough".

The dressing?  My sister adapted one she found by taking the oil out.  I don't have the original recipe, but I put the oil back in.  Here's what I use:

2 T honey
1 T honey mustard or Dijon mustard
1/4 C balsamic vinegar
3/4 C extra virgin olive oil

Whisk ingredients together and serve over the pasta salad. 

You can use less oil, if you like, or even eliminate the oil altogether.

So simple.  And a real taste of summer.

Lincoln Center evening

So one evening last week we headed up to Lincoln Center, the cultural heart of New York City.  Hone of the Metropolitan Opera House, the Julliard  School, Avery Fisher Hall, the Vivian Beaumont Theater, the New York City Ballet, and even a branch of the New York Public Library.



"Lincoln Center Twilight" by Nils Olander from Panoramio - Own work. Licensed under GFDL via Wikimedia Commons.



Our purpose was to see the current production of The King and I.

Most people are familiar with The King and I, either from the 1956 movie and/or from the many Broadway revivals and touring companies over the years.  The musical was written specifically for then-Broadway star Gertrude Lawrence, and became the vehicle that launched Yul Brenner into stardom.  (I saw the 1996 revival, with Lou Diamond Phillips as the King and Marie Osmond as Anna.) 

The current production stars Kelli O'Hara and Ken Watanabe.  She is absolutely amazing, she plays Anna as both tough and romantic.  He is a terrific actor, but I found his accent a bit difficult to understand at times.  The costumes were amazing, I really loved the ball gown.  The sets were impressive -- we were sitting in the first row of the mezzanine, and when the curtain rose and the ship literally sailed across the stage...it felt like the ship was coming straight at us.

I should say something about race relations, colonialism and slavery -- themes that are woven into the story, in a way that the 21st century audience might not view as "politically correct", but ...

Well, I agree with Ben Brantley's review:

Besides, what makes “The King and I” a five-handkerchief masterpiece isn’t its quaint portrait of mores at odds, but its portrayal of the varied forms and content of love, an abiding theme of Rodgers and Hammerstein. This score, given the full velvet touch by a sublime orchestra, contains some of their lushest ballads.

Yes, I cried for the doomed romance of Tuptim and Lun Tha.

The production has been nominated for 9 Tonys, and I will be very eager to see how it does during the awards ceremony  next month. 


Afterwards we had dinner at P. J. Clarke's, our "go-to" place in that neighborhood.    I successfully resisted the call of their macaroni and cheese -- an interesting and very rich concoction that includes peas and bacon and a billion calories.  Instead, we both ordered the skirt steak, which is served with a side of steak fries and a choice of sauce:  BĂ©arnaise, Classique, Roquefort, or Neat.  My request to substitute mashed potatoes was gladly accommodated.  The steaks were very tender, the BĂ©arnaise rich and  tasty.  My mashed potatoes were very creamy, and were topped with sour cream, which gave them an interesting tang.  Drew really liked the onion strings -- lightly breaded and fried, and not the least bit greasy.  The steak fries were crisp, but unfortunately the house ketchup tastes more like tomato paste.   

P.J. Clarke's on Urbanspoon

And afterwards, we were treated to a street musician's unique saxophone performance of Pagliacci.   The opera had been presented earlier that evening at the Met, and I suppose the young man playing the sax wanted to capitalize on that. 

 Only in New York.

The photo you wish you had

Today is Mother's Day.  I will honor my mother, my daughters will honor me. There will be a family get-together.

But I am thinking of another Mother's Day, one from a lifetime ago.

It was my first Mother's Day as a mother, Jen was 6 months old.  And we were all at my parents' house for a family celebration.

And someone got the idea for a photograph.  Four generations.

So we posed.  My grandmother, eighty-nine years old at the time.  My mother.  My baby daughter.  And me.

Back then, in the days before digital photography and social media, you had to wait until you finished a roll of film before you took it to the drugstore to be developed.  And you'd get back one set, maybe two, of prints. 

I'm sure I saw the finished product, but no one thought to give me a copy of it.  I suspect the photo (and all the other pictures taken that day) is sitting in a box in my mother's closet. 

But for now it's a picture that exists only in memory.  A sweet memory of a sweet day. 

Happy Mother's Day, everyone.  Go make some memories.

Jones Beach State Park

So I've been getting more actively lately, I've been doing some walking. 

One afternoon last week I headed over to Jones Beach.

Yes, the world-famous Jones Beach, the jewel in the crown of state parks on Long Island.

I'm usually at the park on summer evenings, when I've got ticket for a concert at the Jones Beach theater.  And I'm there for the annual breast cancer awareness walk in October.

But it's been a long  time since I visited in the off season, when there weren't throngs of beachgoers around.  I can to walk the Boardwalk, but found myself admiring the scenery.  The beaches, the dunes, the art deco buildings dating from the park's founding ...

The amazing architecture of the bathhouses:
