David's Thoughts

Martha’s Vineyard is located south of Cape Cod off the coast of Massachussetts. It is known for its la-di-da residents, elegant cocktail parties, snazzy dressers who often sport the famous Nantucket red pants with navy blue shirts, and historic mansions. It is the 58th largest island in the U.S. and it is 100 square miles. Traveling to Martha’s Vineyard can be complicated and expensive – it’s only accessible by boat or air. Flying from Baltimore to Martha’s Vineyard can cost a shocking $600 round trip, but for the savvy traveler a cheaper way is to fly from Baltimore to Boston on Southwest, Spirit, or JetBlue, with the final leg by Cape Air or a seasonal ferry. It’s a great destination for a weekend trip because it’s gay-friendly, full of history, and it has many charming small towns and beautiful landscapes.

Maybe I’m spoiled having lived in New York until I was ten. When it comes to pizza, I have a high standard. Admittedly, I have yet to taste any pizza I like as much as Phil’s Pizza in Massapequa, Long Island, and believe me, I’ve tried. So with that background, let’s move on to our dining experience at Earth Wood & Fire. It was a busy Wednesday evening, the dining area was completely filled, so we were seated at a high-top table over by the bar. We were pleasantly surprised how spacious the bar area is – not at all cramped.

Some days I wake up filled with strength and vigor. I can do anything. I can be the best that is inside me. Then, there are the days when I wake up and feel that I am defeated before I start. Wow! I sometimes forget to say “Thanks, I am awake” until I reach for my kippah (head cover). It reminds me that there is something so much greater than I am. My day begins with gratitude– the reminder works.

Man boobs and the real man

Back in the 1950s we were short on epithets and about the worst thing you could be called was a sissy. “Queer” was used sometimes, but it had none of the sexual connotations it carries today. In rural Nebraska, we didn’t know much about homosexuality.

Legal Advice

Asylum is a form of relief from removal that is granted if a person is able to prove that he or she will be harmed on return to their native country. The applicant must file the application (Form I-589) within one year of their entry into the U.S., whether they enter legally or not. The person must prove that they belong to one or more of several groups facing harm, on the basis of political opinion, nationality, or membership in a particular social group or religion. The individual must prove that he or she has suffered past persecution or has a well-founded fear of future persecution.. Asylum is an evolving area of immigration law and an application that may not have been granted a few years ago may, in fact, be approved now.

Dealing with employee conflict– whether between coworkers, or between a manager and an employee– can be stressful. Oftentimes conflicts arise as a result of unresolved experiences of the past.

Post-Election Support for LGBTQIA Students

Waking up on the morning of November 9, 2016 was a challenge.  I sat in bed and reread CNN headlines over and over again, thinking to myself “is this real life?” The misty morning didn’t help with the fogginess that overcame my brain.  The dreary weather only added to the feeling of complete despair and hopelessness.

The internet saw a massive ransomware attack on May 12th, when computers in nearly 100 countries were hit and held hostage to hackers. The hackers demanded those affected pay a ransom to have their files and systems released. The attack hit medical networks and government agencies especially hard, as they are more vulnerable since they tend to upgrade their systems less frequently than businesses. It’s all a reminder of how important it is to safeguard your computer’s security.

Summer is upon on us. This is a warm, fun, happy time of year that offers many opportunities to be outside. Summer also offers its fair share of holidays including Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day. One of the things that dogs love about these holidays is barbeques. One of things that they may not like so much is fireworks. Happily, Violet, Daisy, and Henry are largely unconcerned about these very flashy and very loud spectacles. Violet, however, is very worried for all her canine friends that are afraid of loud noises.

Thinking of buying your first home? Congratulations! You’re making a very smart decision. Rents right now are unusually high, and in many cases, you could make a mortgage payment on your current house or apartment that would be cheaper than the rent check you scratch out each month (or the one that is automatically debited from your account). No matter what a stockbroker might try to tell you, residential real estate is still a good investment, and it forms the basis for a higher net worth as you age and have to start thinking about retirement.
