Hurrican Sandy
My family and I are grateful for being safe after the tragic hurricane that has destroyed Rockaway as well as other beach communities.  In retrospect we consider ourselves very lucky and will overcome any losses that we have suffered.  I have written a memior of that night, and the kids are going to write about the remarkable and uplifting days that followed the Hurricane.  Click here for the first installment which describes our night during the hurricane.

Our wedding song, by Jorma off the Quah album

Flying Clouds


Iím singing everybody knows itís true
The way I feel Ďbout you
Got no mind for wasting time
Feeling like I do 
Now I feel like only smiling
And living by your side
Our course is clear
We see it here
Thereís no more lonesome rides 
Heading for our destination
The past is out of sight
Yours eyes in mine
Their fires entwine
Weíve finally seen the light 
Iím singing everybody knows itís true
The way I feel Ďbout you
Got no mind for wasting time
Feeling like I do 
Heading for the sunshine country
Going with the wind
The love we know
Canít help but grow
As life comes rolling in
As life comes rolling in

Stop the Presses!  Shed Expansion Project Near Completion Without Necessary  Permits!
Under the cover of darkness the illegal Shed Expansion Project has been ongoing despite a stop work order from the Racos Administration.  Frank "Cement Head" Murphy has denied any knowledge of the construction, or the need for an environmental impact study. When questioned Muphy was quoted as saying, "how about I impact your head Sica." The work site, a former nesting area for the endangered Piping Plover, has been shut down since the Jets lost to the Colts in late January.  Murphy said the plans were to build the SJ Memorial Cultural Center, and was made possible by a grant from SSI in the name of Sloppy Joe Marino.
