Coffee Labs and the Lagond Music School – Great coffee and entertainment…

I spent some time at Coffee Labs on Saturday night to catch the music. The band was from the Lagond Music School located in Elmsford NY. The performers were all very young to my middle-aged eyes and the quality of the music was excellent.

Tarrytown River Walk

Fotos on the Fly – Tarrytown NY River Walk in Spring

The Tarrytown NY Rivere walk provides me with a terrific subject. If I took bad pictures with all that going for me - I should just stop taking photos altogether.

Pets and the economy – A Plea to Westchester’s Condo and Coop Boards…..

Westchester condos and coops are about the MOST pet UN-FRIENDLY places imaginable. Manhattan, Riverdale, most of the Bronx, Queens and Fairfield county are ALL more flexible than Westchester are all more pet-friendly than Westchester.

Rosedale Pharmacy – 1215 Mamaroneck Ave – White Plains NY

Rosedale Pharmacy is near and dear to my heart. Why? Because they handled the often conflicting prescriptions that my father had to deal with during his three year battle with stage 4 cancer. The diagnosis had come as a shock - but even more shocking were the insurance issues - which were massive and all the medications he suddenly was dependent on.
