Day 6 Visas, Wall, Hold the MONEY...DOW 20,000

Posted on January 25, 2017 at 8:05 PM

The liberal socialists, communists and other idiots who support Islam, because they are either too stoned or too ignorant to understand the danger, are now creating the narrative of an unhappy idiots Trump family so that they can take control and continue where Obama did not finish the dissimation of this wonderful nation USA.

In 6 days of just working - not gulfing, lunching, redecorating his offices or other bull - our President Trump had signed intelligent acts, which will begin brin...

Women's Rights? Who's kidding whom?!

Your same old same old is getting OLDER! These women last weekend did not march so that there will be women's healthcare options for women. They already have them! In the USSR - a woman I knew had 28 abortions by the age of 25! The women who marched in DC last week were mostly communists and socialists wanting to make USSR out of USA. Do you want to experience 28 abortions? If yes, support Planned Parenthood, and you may eventually beat that rec...

Day 1, Friday. This is why I love USA

On January 20, 2017, heading to 12:00 luncheon, a non- political one, where valet drop off-line with no alternative held us up for half hour, my husband and I walked into the room of 250 strangers and immediately realized that the speaker is also late. The Ritz connected them to live streaming of CNN so that they were all watching inauguration on a large presentation screen. We sat down moments before the start of the National Anthem. Everyone got u...

My birthday universe

Posted on June 20, 2016 at 11:30 AM

The older I get the less of a holiday my birthday becomes. I think if I am going to pivot at this speed, by the age of 95 my birthday will once again feel like a national holiday!

Roses: the paler the better.

In lieu of this year's birthday cards, do your bit for USA a safe return to its Judeo-Christian foundation.

I have not eaten my cake. I do not bake cakes.

I breakfasted ...

Little Russia

Posted on June 1, 2016 at 7:10 PM

At the May 29th 2016 Naples Symphony performance of PI Tchaikovsky's  Symphony N2, aka "Little Russian" in English. Language is such a misleading and manipulative tool. Much more so than music. Music is pure and gives away all falsehoods to the listener. Language is capable of camouflage. Even when not masked by pronounciation, vocalization and intonation. In Russian, it's Malorossiyskaya. This is a re...

Film Festival reflections

Posted on May 2, 2015 at 8:15 PM

My film about Naples was screened last week at the Fort Myers Beach Film Festival. It was objectively speaking the only well and professionally made film in its category. The remainder of the films were amateur attempts at filmmaking, some very abstract, some in very poor taste, in my opinion. But it was really good to be among people who want to be filmmakers and/or are filmmakers all week long. I truly enjoyed the experience. I also got to meet people I never thought of meeting and ride to ...

My Film about Naples

Posted on April 11, 2015 at 12:25 AM

In May of 2004, after not willing to give Florida a chance for nearly a quarter of a century, I discovered Naples. As with many things I do, I now wish that I had not resisted for so long. But then I would not have had the other experiences I collected along the way, right?!

I fell in love with Naples and understood it almost by osmosis, like no other city ever. Not even the one where I was born. There is a certain welcoming quality to Naples as the city, which I have never sensed any p...
