I've been dating a guy for a few months and we're the talk of the town. He's 25, pretty successful, no kids, and very handsome. But something in the back of my mind is telling me to be careful because his reputation is that he's a bit of a "player."
Almost every girl warns me about his past which has included having multiple girlfriends at the same time. I've
Back on March 21st, a man who had only known one profession his entire life, was told he had to shut it down. For this longtime Albany barber, who had been cutting hair since his early 20's, the shutdown was his most difficult cut ever. It was a decision that came at the hands of CDC officials and the Governor of New York State, not his. But this stubborn ol' man - resistant to change - rallie
You were a bit too young to remember what life was like during the coronavirus pandemic that swept through the world in 2020, some 13 plus years ago. Hard to believe it's been that long. Thankfully, we survived these very uneasy and uncertain times and and you are a grown-up now. Soon enough you'll be off to college and ready to enter a whole new phase in your life.
But back in 2020,
Debbie's Kitchen, a landmark cafe-style deli in Center Square Albany, is closing its doors on Saturday ending a run of great food and even better people that started in the mid-80's. It breaks my heart to see this proud place go down- another local business casualty of Covid-19. If you know anything about Albany food, you know about Debbie's Kitchen. If you've never heard of it before, I'd like
I keep telling myself to stop obsessing over what may have happened moments before the helicopter crash that took the lives of Kobe Bryant, his beautiful 13-year-old daughter Gianna and the 7 other passengers on board. While their names and faces may not resonate with us like Kobe and GiGi they too were wonderful parents, siblings, friends, sons and daughters, neighbors, community leaders and the
A long-time barber in Albany reluctantly cut his last head of hair on Saturday due to the government mandate closing the doors on barbershops, salons, tattoo parlors, and piercing shops and quite frankly, he's not happy about it. Despite the urging of family, that at age 78, he was in the high risk coronavirus category and he should NOT be working, he still went about his business. Up at 5 AM, d
I have two very good friends with elderly parents and wisely, these folks are not spending much time outside of their house during the pandemic. They're a close, wonderful, Greek family, but this COVID-19 stuff hasn't been easy on them. One of the sons lives in Boston and the other lives in L.A. A few weeks ago, I messaged them and said that if their parents needed me to get anything at the sto
A family Zoom conference on Sunday led to an incredible discovery about my Zayde (Yiddish for grandfather) that I never knew. Turns out I have heroes blood piping through these veins. In 1964, he jumped out of his car and saved 2 young children trapped a Schenectady fire.
As a result of social distancing recommendations offered up by the CDC, Halloween in the Capital Region will look a little different on Saturday. Some area homes are simply leaving their lights off in an attempt to keep trick-or-treaters away this year, while others are creating ways to keep the tradition and Halloween spirit alive.
We've all heard of the Purple Heart, The Color Purple (great movie starring Oprah), Purple Rain, The Purple People Eaters, and even the less popular (and quite painful) purple nurple. But this Halloween, if you see a purple pumpkin on someone's porch, it doesn't mean they've had it out so long that it's beginning to rot. The purple pumpkin in the newest wave of color designation used to symboliz
