Memorial Day 2013

Memorial_Day_2013

Today is Memorial Day in the U.S.A.

This holiday has evolved over time to become synonymous with backyard BBQs or with folks heading to the beach.  Typically, a day off from work spent with family and friends.  Everyone appreciates and definitely deserves a three-day weekend, so enjoy !!

Memorial Day also signifies the start of summer! Let’s make it a great one!

Whatever you decide to or have to do today, please remember to take a moment to think of  those that have died in service  to our great nation.

Cut the Tedium from Your Life by Automating Everything This Weekend

Cut the Tedium from Your Life by Automating Everything This Weekend.

Happy Weekend everyone ! After a very rough week, I decided to TAKE it EASY and RELAX this weekend as I tend to not give enough thought to relaxation.

I generally have two settings:

  1.  The 100-mile-an-hour-24-hours-a-day-Multitasker Extraordinaire who manages to check items off from three simultaneous checklists while traveling to multiple cities and states in a short amount of time, all the while managing work projects, repainting the living room, calculating home budgets, composing songs, while baking, cooking and making time to walk dogs, visit folks in senior citizens homes and being a citizen role-model for all…. (LOOK OUT MISS USA!)
  2. Then we have….. The Professional-Time-Wasting-Engineer ….amused at surfing the internet, needlessly reorganizing things (re:alphabetizing s in the kitchen),  or who watches endless marathons of pointless TV shows and then sleeps for about 20 hours straight..

Ok , so  maybe I’m SLIGHTLY exaggerating…

However, in the hopes of REDUCING the sheer amount of items the supposed Multi-Tasker extraordinaire needs to carry out… and in the hopes of INCREASING the amount time that the  Professional Time-Wasting-Engineer likes to waste…..  I am going to execute some of the suggestions mentioned in this article today while relaxing….

Thought you would enjoy reading and/or benefit from it as well, if nothing more than maybe help you spark a brainstorm of areas where you can make your life more automated and streamlined. Overall aim this weekend is to do complete automation and streamlining in order to reduce stress and increasing your quality of life.

Enjoy !

Target First Saturdays at the Brooklyn Museum

Tonight is an event not to be missed at the Brooklyn Museum!

Every first Saturday of the month, the Brooklyn Museum will feature free programs of art and entertainment from 5 PM till 11 PM and this evening will present the works of two of my favorite artists.

Over 150 amazing designs created by the internationally recognized NYC artist,

Keith Haring [1958-1990] will be featured tonight.

Then, starting at 8 PM, my good friend, legendary DJ Junior Vasquez (who was very close to Keith) will spin a tribute to 1970s and ’80s New York.  This will be an evening to remember! Have a great night, and if you can, swing by the Brooklyn Museum!
