The Village District – as an idea

on
It’s the ultimate “scary board” of inquisition that kind of goes against Westport’s easy going casual/ creative nature. The confab agglomerations by the river were built up over time, during different periods. We have the Gothic Empire Westport Bank and Trust building(beautifully restored by David Waldman). We have Greek Revival downtown as well with the […] [Read More]

What A Difference Warm Sunny Day Makes

on
A warm sunny day can make all the difference in the world for a soul tired, beaten down and weary of wintry mixes of precipitation falling for months on end. It must have something to with psychology or just the way human beings are wired. When that sun came out the other day, yesterday, it was […] [Read More]

Beyonce looking good at Grammy's opening 2014

Westporter Nile Rogers up there for highest honor of the night

on
The Grammys were very interesting to watch last night. I was only able to get through the first 2 and 3/4 hours however. Beyonce’s opening number was beyond sexy, beyond provocative … it was cool dark and mysterious. Jay-z came out to finish off the song– “Drunk In Love”. I can say from experience, attending […] [Read More]

Up into the fifties for the weekend, it will be quite a respite from the searing cold brought upon us by the […] [Read More]
