Breast Cancer Walk

October 23, 2014 · Leave a Comment

This past Sunday was the yearly American Cancer Breast Cancer walk on Long Island.  The walk takes place out in Jones Beach.

Every year I walk the walk with Bobbieann, my friend, and neighbor.  We both  started walking every October for Breast Cancer the year after I was treated for  the disease.

All the people who walk, men, women, children, dogs, young adults either know someone or lost someone to Breast Cancer.  It could have been  a mom, sister, aunt, cousin or friend of a friend.  Cancer effects us all.

We all come together to give solidarity,  and give support, to survivors. Survivors like me.

This is Martha, and her plastic surgeon, Dr Israeli, whom she loves dearly.  See Martha is another survivor.  It is important that when you are diagnosed with this disease you find a doctor who you can connect with.  And Martha  found it with Dr. Israeli. get-attachment (8)Check out Martha and Debbie.  Walking with determination.  With a YES we can attitude.

This is not the usual book my granddaughter looks at, but she had a wonderful time reading and exploring Ancient China through this wonderful book. A wild history lesson that will  make any child’s imagination take off. For readers ages 5-9 and  I enjoyed it with her too.

Sunday in Washington Square Park and Amorino Gelato

October 20, 2014 · Leave a Comment


Yesterday, I spent the afternoon at Washington Square Park with my sister.


We were there to hear my niece Sandra  singing with her acapella group, the Itones from Queens College and it could not have been a more beautiful day. Standing next to my sister is Cory a Itones member and friend.  Really, there was lots of music in every corner of the park. People performing and enjoying the day. Washington Square Park is a really beautiful place to spend a day.


Even though it was a little chilly we decided to stop for some Amorino Gelato on the way back home. Sandra deserved it for a great job :)


This was the first time I ever had Amorino Gelato. What a fun idea to shape the ice cream on the cone into a rose, beautiful and delicious!!
