We Arrived In Cairo

We talked about this trip for months, and we finally did it. I was slightly nervous about coming here, but so far everyone has been solicitous and very accommodating. It’s so nice when people are good to each other.

We are staying at the exquisite Cairo Marriott Hotel, one of tallest buildings in Cairo. We can see the Nile River from our room. The Marriott opened in 1983, but the central wing was built as the Gezirah Palace for the Khedive Isma’il Pasha in 1869 and converted to a luxury hotel in 1894.

It was a nine hour airplane ride here but when you have a lot of writing to do for work, it goes fast. I really should write a book about traveling the world and still dedicating myself to work. My cell phone works, I get my emails even when I am not on WiFi territory, and I never miss every deadline without fail. I can wheel and deal and network from Cairo just like I do when I’m home. This virtual world of doing business is a wonderful gift, just as long as you are organized disciplined.

Tomorrow we ride camels. Good luck to me.

What Exactly Does A Record Producer Do?

This is what a record producer looks like. They come in all shapes, sizes, ages, and sexes. I always wondered what a Broadway producer does?

I guess that’s why I was so drawn to the recent edition of Steve Guttenberg’s Audiophiliac’s podcast. Steve spells it all out with terrific humor and great examples from Billy Joel, the Beatles, and Nora Jones.

If you love music, then give yourself a treat. Listen.

Have fun.


Amazon’s Alexa Helps Women Check Their Breasts

I just read in the New York Post that most women still do not know how to check their breasts for abnormalities.

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, a charity called Breast Cancer Care, has teamed up with Amazon’s virtual assistant Alexa, to help women with life-saving information.

It’s very simple to use. Just search for “Breast Cancer Care” in the skills part of the Alexa app or Amazon website. Follow the instructions.

One in three women still fail to regularly check their breasts. Many say it is because they don’t know how to do it.

These are some of the signs Alexa will help you with:

1. Change in breast size or shape

2. Redness or a rash

3. Nipple discharge

4. Swelling in the armpit or around the collarbone

5. Change in skin texture

6. An inverted nipple

7. Constant pain

Breast Cancer Care reminds you “If anything about your breasts changes, it’s always worth getting checked over by your doctor.”

Cesar Sayoc Jr. Is Our Friend’s Neighbor

Lee and Ray Elman

In the middle of all this craziness about someone sending out packages containing explosive devices to high profile liberals, Eliot and I received an urgent email today from our friends who live in Aventura, Florida, that said, “Are you sitting down?”

It turns out that Cesar Sayoc Jr., the suspected Florida mail bomber, lives in the next building to our pals, Lee and Ray Elman.

Ray is the Founding Editor In Chief, Inspicio, an art magazine. Lee works for the special events company called Biz Bash.

Ray said, “I left my apartment garage this afternoon (to pick up a book written by someone I’m interviewing during the Miami Book Fair) and discovered that there are cops and reporters all around our property. Cesar Sayoc Jr, the pipe bomber, lives in our sister building on Biscayne Cove. I somehow don’t think he parked his sticker-covered white ‘hail Trump and target enemies’ van in our garage.”

Here is Lee’s iPhone video of the throng: https://youtu.be/7xHMs_V8ze0

Ray added, “We were watching NBC Evening News tonight, when suddenly broadcaster Kerry Sanders, appeared in front of our building.

See: https://youtu.be/XMLpF9NJYj8.

“So Lee and I ran downstairs and chatted with Kerry. I invited Kerry up for a drink, but he was pooped.”

Christine Lahti Gives A Tony Award Winning Performance

This is one of the most important and riveting plays ever produced. Eliot and I (HWH PR) will buy a ticket for any woman who voted for Trump, or simply can not afford one on their own. Women need to stop worrying about if their shoes match their purse, and start focusing on how this administration wants to set us back to the Donna Reed era.

This is a special message to some of my ex girl friends who are not for gun control—understand that most multiple killings with guns are done by white men who need to regain what they feel is a loss of control over their lives. Go see Gloria. You owe it to the future women of America.

Say hello to Iris Apfel and Andy Warhol. Mention our name, Lois and Eliot Hess, for the best prices ever. 61st and Second. Ask for Roman.

A Man Made Moon.

The story I am about to tell you is so crazy that you won’t believe me. You can check it out by Googling “China plans to launch an artificial moon in the sky.”

That’s right. China wants an artificial moon, that is so bright, they won’t need streetlights. It will be eight times as bright as the real one. The city slated for this new concept is Chengdu.

The satellite, (the moon), will be able to light an area between six to 50 miles. It could save the city up to $240 million in annual electricity costs.

Not everyone in Chengdu is happy about the artificial light slated to be installed in 2020. Lots of folks are questioning what impact the artificial light will have on wildlife.
