Despite the bleak looking landscape outside our window, everything about January is optimistic. The year is new, we hatch resolutions anew, and that aching for summer we abandoned in November and December? We renew our hopes about this time, as spring’s arrival on March 20 lets the countdown to summer officially begin. While we await […]

Cold weather and I are completely incompatible. I don’t like hats, I don’t like gloves, I don’t like fleece, and I sure don’t like anything frozen unless it’s a dessert. As we embark upon the coldest (and shortest) days of the year, I always seek ways to warm up without having to bundle up. The […]

Would you jump into freezing water for a few seconds?

Many Long Islanders who would otherwise avoid the beach in the cold weather flock to the  water for a polar bear plunge fundraiser […]

Now every age can let the sunshine in, since tie-dye is once again in vogue for casual wear, work, and even summer weddings.

Nothing spurs boaters to fixate on how tired or ugly their boats’ interiors look than exploring new boats at a boat show. Many of today’s boat lines emphasize style and creature comforts, and display plenty of high-end decorative and electronic options such as flat screen TVs (with surround sound), stylishly form-fitted couches, granite counter tops, and lustrous wood treatments.

I am a major fan of the month of August. I know there are people who add “horrible” to the “hazy, hot & humid” H-words that make August unbearable for some. As for me, when I’m on a boat and the heat is cranked up high, my H-word is HAPPY!

Twice yearly we have familiar discussions about how to properly transition our clothing from one season to the next. Since we are lucky enough to live in an area that has four distinctive seasons, transitioning your wardrobe from, say, summer to autumn, is a necessity. But what isn’t a necessity is buying a whole new wardrobe merely because the temperature drops.

The question might be stuck in your head as “who wears short shorts?”, but barely there or to the knee, shorts are a wearable look for everyone in the summer.
