Although overall, I am feeling terrific and so very grateful for so many darn things, like right now, as I sit at my favorite little mexican dive, sitting at the counter (it's not a fancy "jurnt", as my grandma use to say) sipping (soon maybe gulping!) a nice Chianti along with a delicious quesadilla (okay i'm...

So I head out last night with a girlfriend for a sort of mini girl's night out . We agree to make our way to The Bayou in Mt. Vernon, NY (www.bayourestaurantny.com) as our first stop - for a cocktail, some chicken wings (my favorite place for wings - darn good!) and figure the game plan for the rest of the night..........

I've been meaning to write but have had such a plethora of emotion lately, I didn't know where to start. So many goodbyes life brings about, along with anticipations and doubts of new hellos that sometime play "fear the reaper" I think, without us even realizing it. Fearing new hellos, or fearing there won't ever be a new hello. I guess, I... Continue Reading →
ROCK -N- ROBIN @ The Keltic House 6/19/10. Finally! We got it together to make it happen and happen it did. It was a fun night headlining with the new setup (Me, Michael D'Andrea-Drums, Chris Gorgone-Lead Guitar and George Demas-Bass/Keyboards). I must have had about 8 shots of Yagermeister (spelling?) with no effect (which is why I... Continue Reading →
Went to see this band (these girls) an all female band at an intimate show setting in the Bronx at Lehman College a few weeks back. The first of an original music band series the school is putting together and trying out. At first, before the band came on, I was kind of feeling I might be getting... Continue Reading →
Well here's another draft I started and got so far as the title. Must have fallin' asleep. Go figure.
Well I've returned to my blog with a bit of a zing (not so much of a bang) to update it and hope to get back into the flow of posting blogs often like I used to. I know I've said it before, but I think I will this time...I can kind of feel it (semi kind... Continue Reading →
Did you ever just have one of those moments that come from nowhere that just brings warmth to your heart and hope to your soul. While walking around the city today with my laptop in my backpack and my head between my knees (the boo hoo's of life hitting me these days scenario), I took... Continue Reading →
Life. Hmm. Life. Very difficult at times. Yes, you have to take the bitter with the better but my bitter has built and I don't like it. I'm synical where I use to be positive. Disenchanted when I use to see the silver lining. I feel challenged on so many levels. I see such self-centeredness... Continue Reading →
Well...it's done. I nailed the drummer. In this case, nailing the drummer meaning his acceptance in joining the band. Which is what went down last night (Saturday Night). Since the moment I saw this drummer play, he sent every cell in my body stir crazy. A powerhouse. When he showed an interest in my band... Continue Reading →
Little did I know that after returning from a weekend trip to upstate New York that I would be coming back no longer in need of a possible botox injection that I may have been thinking of (yes I can be one of those "use what you got (and a little help don't hurt) to make the best of what you...

What a beautiful perfect weather weekend it was. You couldn't ask for it to be better. Not too hot, yet perfect to throw on your suit and head for the beach, relax...listen to music and just let go of any junk renting space in your head. Bathing suits, sippin' martinis, beach, beer, 3 bands....barbecue and...boys (a couple of... Continue Reading →
Is he a piece of chocolate cake, a slice of apple pie, a delicately slithered pecan pie-warmed and topped with vanilla ice cream or is he a specialized Tiramasu dripping with espresso and cream served with a HOT cappuccino mixed with Frangelica and Baileys topped with a whip cream chaser? Remember girls, men are just dessert........and I myself favor the Tiramasu.
Well an interesting Saturday night. First, I realize as I am about to get on the Throgs Neck Bridge heading over to The Bay Club in Bayside, Queens to pick up my friend Nancy for her birthday celebration that I have no cash for the toll booth. Luckily I realize this in time enough to catch the "last exit... Continue Reading →
We did it! Our first gig! We rocked the house! I feel "official" and it feels great. I feel most great that I did not let the comments about my voice needing some work (which it did I admit) by some visitors at one of our practice sessions stop me from getting up there and getting...

So, this has been an interesting week. The company I work for is part of the reality show American Inventor and I am getting the chance to experience that whole reality show process. Ya know, the cameras in your face while you are trying to act like they are not there. Cameras and mics moving position every... Continue Reading →
There are some hotties at the gym. To include my trainer (who is waaaayyyyy too young). That's all I'm sayin'. Other than it's motivating the shit out of me.
