Ads, hotels and old friends

Living out of a hotel room makes time stand still. After a week, the days really start to blend together. I establish a routine; my computer rests on the desk for emails; I sit on the couch to watch TV and Netflix. Over time a few random personal effects scatter throughout the room.

Upon entry, the room always looks the same, the bed magically remade as if a reset button has been pushed.  Read more

Breakfast in Bed with Catskill Harvest Market

The Catskill Harvest Market (2758 State Route 52, Liberty, NY, 845/292-3838, www.catskillharvestmarket.com) is celebrating its second birthday this spring, and in just two years, it has gained renown and recognition as a top-notch garden center and local foods market.

Says co-founder and manager Daniel Duttinger, “It always seemed a bit odd that this kind of farm market was readily available in surrounding areas, particularly Ulster County—but not here.” So, he and co-founder Will Foster went to the drawing board and began the research, and the market was born.  Read more

What a great weekend I had; I went down to Queens to a cousin’s party. There were over 45 of us, and there were a lot missing. This was my mother’s mother’s side of the family. My family tree could be a forest.

With my mother being so sick she wanted everyone together to have a party, so she and my two aunts were there. The three of them are the last of a generation; my sister and two cousins are the start of my generations; and there were three generations there after me. We are a very lucky family to have five generations. Being with family is always a fun time.  Read more
