Don’t eat that owl!

Last night, Karen and I were watching an episode of The Blacklist. Raymond, the main character, was at an underground dinner for foodies. At one point, the chef is about to slaughter a rare owl and cook it. Raymond stops the atrocity from happing by pulling out a gun. When the scene started, before the owl […]

“Life is precious, don’t waste a drop.”

A year ago, my friend and mentor, Rob Berkley, passed away from cancer. This past weekend, I was fortunate to attend a celebration of life ceremony in Naples, FL, organized by Rob’s amazing wife, Debbie. The quote in the subject line comes from Rob. Ponder it. Live it. “Life is precious, don’t waste a drop.” […]

Stop adding raw onions!

Listen, I like onions as much as the next guy, but there are some things chunks of onion should not be added to. Chicken salad and tuna salad are two of them. I’m sitting in the Delta lounge, where you’ll often find me, and I know to stay away from the damn chicken salad. I […]

Jimmy Hoffa’s success secret

I highly recommend you watch the movie The Irishman, on Netflix. The acting is beyond stellar as you would expect from Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci. Watching these three actors ply their craft under the direction of Martin Scorsese, is a joy. In the film, Pacino plays Jimmy Hoffa. Hoffa hates it when […]

“Don’t follow Dave’s lead.”

Hmm. Last night Karen was talking to a friend who admitted that she admonished her husband, “Not to follow Dave’s lead” before we all met for the dinner I wrote about yesterday. Apparently, I have don’t have the most stellar reputation amongst our circle of friends. Yeah, maybe I can be a little opinionated about […]

This restaurant should be closed for malpractice

Quinoa. Really? I am only slightly exaggerating when I tell you that nearly every menu item at the restaurant I dined at last night had friggin’ quinoa in it. Don’t even get me going about the “burger” made out of beets. No, kemosabe, I most assuredly did not select the restaurant. Friends did, and despite their […]

My kids and why are protesting this request

Every year, for as long as I can remember, I’ve watched two movies over the holiday season, “It’s A Wonderful Life,” and “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.” My two biological kids watched these movies with me for years as well, and I thought they enjoyed it. Well, I brought up the subject the other day over […]

The Scrooge School of Persuasion

Earlier today, I told you about two of my favorite holiday movies but failed to mention the third movie I watch without fail during the Christmas season:  A Christmas Carol starring Alastair Sim. If you haven’t seen this version, watch it as soon as you can. In the movie, Scrooge gets visited by the ghosts […]

Anti-Black Friday Email

No more turkey, please. Good, lord, I don’t even like turkey. For the record, two family members chowed down on my meatballs after eating the bird. As you know, today is “Black Friday,” where thousands of business owners slash prices on their products and some of their services. While I like taking advantage of this […]

Driving around frantically looking for a turkey

Earlier this week, Karen and I went to Whole Foods to get stuff for Thanksgiving. Pies. Check. Potatoes. Check. Bread for stuffing. Check. Fresh turkey. “Sorry, we’re completely sold out of turkey.” Say what? My initial plan was to have our youngest son, Drew, hide in a tree in our backyard with a BB gun […]
