Musings December 7, 2016

December 7th – A date that will live in infamy, so said President Roosevelt about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. As I write, we are at the 75th anniversary of this tragic event. Tragic because it brought the US into World War II, if you know your history, you know so many lives were lost and the geography of the world was changed forever. Yes, this musing is a bit preachy. Please forgive me this time. I only ask that you take a moment to pray for the souls lost 75 years ago, and offer a word of thanks for the sacrifices those veterans and their families made to keep America safe, along with the veterans who have served in the armed forces in both peacetime and wartime ever since. God Bless America.

Luminous Sounds Kicks It Up With Percussion and Brass to Support The String Ensemble.

There is nothing quite so elegant as a string ensemble playing classical standards while you walk down the aisle and later mingle over cocktails, but there is little doubt that a drumbeat or trumpet ruffle will really round out the performance. Now, Luminous Sounds, Long Island’s new “IT” string ensemble for weddings and cocktail parties has expanded to offer a percussionist and a trumpeter, adding interest, versatility, and frankly, more fun, to their performances.

Musings November 26, 2016

Casablanca, the 1942 starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergmann premiered on this date. Perhaps it was not immediately known that this World War II era story was going to earn the iconic status that it now enjoys, but it is now ingrained in our culture with catch-phrases that are part of our American vernacular. “Here’s looking at you kid.” “This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” “We’ll always have Paris.” And one of the most widely used: “Play it again, Sam,” is my personal favorite. It’s a love story for the ages, and 74 years later, it’s still as riveting as ever. Snuggle up with your honey, and a box of tissues (you will need them, I promise), and revel in the star-crossed on-screen love of Rick and Ilsa. Now I’m off to find my own favorite gin joint.

Musings–November 2nd

I just discovered that November is National Fondue Month. So surprising to me that this round table sharing of the cheese (or chocolate) pot is making such a huge comeback after being abandoned as a 1970s anachronism. So, whether you have a fondue pot collecting dust in your cabinet, received one at the wedding shower, or are thinking about putting one on your holiday wish list, the foodie gods have given their blessing. Need a tasty recipe to try? Visit here for a few suggestions. Enjoy!

Musings–October 25, 2016

This week is National Massage Therapy Week. If you have not tried a therapeutic massage, you don’t know what you are missing. I remember my very first one. I was nervous at first, but once I let myself go with the soothing feel of the masseuse’s hands kneading the knots from my muscles, I was hooked. It was beyond wonderful, and so relaxing that I could barely speak. Our Beauty and Wellness Guru and even the Salons & Spas section of North Fork Weddings and South Fork Weddings list some wonderful massage therapists who are pre-screened for professionalism. If you even THINK you may need a massage, you really DO need one. Make an appointment today and celebrate National Massage Therapy Week the way it should be celebrated, with soothing relaxation.
