I’m the proud owner of these compact, but very detailed Penguin books which have given me countless hours of sheer joy learning about people, places and things of interest. 90 per cent bought at Books & Books in Miami. Others were gifts. Perfect for ages 6 to 106. Everything you need to know.
Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton, wants us to buy his book, but he still won’t vote for Biden. He told Bill Maher last night that his philosophical differences with Biden on national security keeps him from casting a democratic vote.
Meanwhile, he claims that Trump is the most dangerous President in the history of the United States and has made this country the biggest loser in terms of international relations, health, and moral values.
Yet, he won’t help remove Trump from the White House with a vote for Biden. In my mind, there is only one way to deal with this kind of attitude. Don’t buy his book. Eliot did before we understood Bolton’s intentions. Eliot said it’s a tough read, very slowly paced. I think it’s a waste of time. We all already know that Trump is evil, a bum, a con artist, immoral and totally self-serving. What more can you possibly learn?
Back In NYC
It still warms my heart that the building we lived in for 40 years, in NYC, still has a strong sense of community. Many families in the coop gather on the roof garden every night for some social interaction in the great outdoors.
The building is not a fancy one, but its location and aerial view are just perfect. You are smack in the middle of the city with all of its dancing lights. My girlfriend Marilyn posted this on Facebook. While the residents maintain their social distance, they all still should be wearing masks. They have been together for months, so they consider themselves family.
David Chesky is an American pianist, composer, producer, arranger, and co-founder of the independent, audiophile label Chesky Records. I know him from his online music store, HDtracks, which sells high-resolution digital music. I had a client in the hi-res music business for many years.
Much to my delight, I found a series of zany mini recitals Chesky posted online because he ”was bored out of his mind.” He takes famous songs and improvises them into his own renditions.
This is what 95 looks like. The woman on the right is my friend Marc’s mother (Florida) and her twin sister (Chicago) is on the left. Happy birthday Ladies
What ever happened to “Don’t S—t Where You Eat.”
That’s me on a Zoom conference call discussing the next big breakthrough in video. It’s called Yaza technology and it addresses one of the most important topics in the world today: “is it true or fake news?” The Yaza app, now available on iOS, authenticates videos so you never have to ask that question again.
This is a new type of PR. The guy below is one of the most famous publicists in Hollywood. He didn’t think twice about putting his current status on Facebook for the world to see that he is now available. Look at his last name. How appropriate!
A 7.5 magnitude earthquake jolted southern Mexico today. We immediately got in touch with some of our friends living in Mexico City. They were all okay. Our artist friend, Omar Barquet, wanted to show us just how much the earth shook. His recent installation in a local gallery was the perfect demonstration machine.
Over the weekend, the Saharan dust moved into the Caribbean. By Monday it changed the tropical blue skies in Miami into a hazy brown gray color. It’s coming your way.
