DSCN0233Dear Single Men on Match.com (OK Cupid, EHarmony, Plenty of Fish)

Hello! Last week I jumped into the singles lane of the online dating pool and nada, zip, zero, bumpkis. What’s up with that?

I am 30, divorced, hot, no kids, have a great job- I’m average height, average weight and take care of myself.

I finished business college and I support myself. My ex drives racecars and lives far away.

My parents live in Florida- the place all old New Yorkers go to tan and die.

(I am thinking about opening a salon in Florida called Tan and Dye- for older seniors.)

My twin sister is a waitress at Morton’s and my brother is a driver for Justin Bieber. We are kind of famous..

I’m not a book person. I love movies (50 Shades of Grey, Twilight, Trainwreck)

My Bichon Frise, Chi Chi, is my best friend and we go everywhere together.

Best thing about Florida: Carl Hiaasen

Myammy! Moving in together at 50...

Book club in Miami

Carl Hiaasen writes for the Miami Herald…

which is funny, because the newspaper is funny. Funny in a sensational, superfluous way.  Some call it “Newspaper lite.” Gertrude Stein might have described it as ‘A no there there newspaper.’  Hence, a large proportion of Floridians  (who rolled down the hill from New York) subscribe to the New York Times for real news and they read Carl to be entertained.

Hiaasen also writes books. Really great books.

The Bonus: Florida has Carl Hiaasen.

On the Right coast, Carl Hiaasen is legendary. He is revered nation-wide – but, in Florida he is holy grail guy.  Witty, urbane, irreverent and the author of a couple dozen best selling books.   Truth be told – The Bad Monkey Book Club – a homage to CH reports that he is so compelling- so famous – women straight out of an ‘I Love Lucy’ episode,  scour Florida hoping…

Somber, Sober Sane: read this

Please Read this by Yale Epidemiologist, Jonathan Smith:

As an infectious disease epidemiologist, at this point I feel morally obligated to provide some information on what we are seeing from a transmission dynamic perspective and how they apply to the social distancing measures. Like any good scientist I have noticed two things that are either not being articulated or not present in the “literature” of social media. I have also relied on my much smarter infectious disease epidemiologist friends for peer review of this post; any edits are from that peer review.

Specifically, I want to make two aspects of these measures very clear and unambiguous.

First, we are in the beginning of this epidemic’s trajectory. That means even with these distancing measures we will see cases and deaths continue to rise globally, nationally, and in our own communities in the coming weeks. This may lead some people to…

OK, let me get this straight,… there’s No Cure for a Virus

that can be killed by wearing a little mask

and by sanitizer and hand soap?

The spread of Covid-19 is based on two factors:

1. How dense the population is and

2. How dense the population is.



Remember all those times when you wished the weekend would last forever?

Well now, your  wish is granted. Happy now?

Overheard at the Miami doctor’s office?


There were two women sitting across from one another, at a famed Miami Plastic Surgery suite of offices.

Both were thumbing through glossy magazines and chatting while glancing up at the long list of   “Miami’s Dr. Marvelous’ Menu of Augmentations and Services” dancing on the huge, sleek, black, wide screen TV across from them.

Le Menu:

Breast Augmentation – Breast Lift | Breast Reconstruction – Breast Reduction – Brazilian Butt Lift-  Liposuction | Male Breast Reduction – Nipple Procedures – Tummy Tuck – Mommy Makeover  – Ear Surgery –  Eyelid Surgery – Facelift – Facial Implants | Forehead/Brow Lift | Fat Grafting | Necklift | Nose Surgery | Hand Rejuvenation | Injectable Facial Fillers | Laser Skin Resurfacing ….

Woman #1 Says: There are two things you never ask for in this office.

Woman #2 Says: Really? Tell me – this is my first time.

Woman #1 (without missing a beat) Says: “Never ask for a ‘Kim Novak’ or a ‘Liza Minnelli’

Phrase never uttered in FL:Cute as a bug

Cute as a Bug!?

The problem with Twitter- my short love affair

Myammy! Moving in together at 50...


When I was eight, I published my first newspaper. I sold every copy!

My parents bought all three copies.

I carefully printed pithy stories about my older brothers, our dog and my mean Second grade teacher.

I used a Ticonderoga pencil #2 and a Big Chief Tablet.

I have been writing – often and passionately – ever since.

A star was born

I am famous for grocery lists, newsletters, Letters to the Editor and for my Dating at 50  bit for The New York Times “Modern Love.”

I know my limits

I’ve never met a writing challenge I couldn’t resist: Sonnet of the week, Haiku of the Day, Limericks for St Patrick’s Day, The Month Python Christmas Carols redux…

WordPress serves a challenge over the net  several times day – and I am there. I am all over it.

My love affair with Twitter started a year ago.

Please don’t hug me…

Lightly Lifted from Article written by esteemed Epidemologist

Although social distancing measures have been (at least temporarily) well-received, there is an obvious-but-overlooked phenomenon when considering groups (i.e. families) in transmission dynamics. 

While social distancing decreases contact with members of society, it typically increases your contacts with Family Members AND very close friends. 

This small and obvious fact has surprisingly Profound Implications on Disease Transmission dynamics. 

Study after study demonstrates that even if there is only a

 little bit of connection between groups 

(i.e. social dinners, playdates/playgrounds, etc.), 

the epidemic isn’t much different than 

if there was no measure in place. 

The same underlying fundamentals of disease transmission apply, 

AND the result is that the community is left with all of the social and economic disruption but very little public health benefit.

You should perceive your entire family to function as a single individual unit; 

if one person puts themselves at risk, everyone in the unit is at risk.

Seemingly small social chains get large and complex with alarming geometric speed
