An Endless Circle of Green

It’s not that I’m anti-holidays, it’s just that every year there seems to be a touch more craziness peppering the atmosphere over these four to five weeks, so it’s with a tiny bit of elation that I tell you I won’t be attending Christmas this year due to a surgery.

Home: The Whalers Motel-TV-Heated

Those were simpler times. I’m not sure there was a Michelin star rating that could have captured the simplistic beauty of the Whalers Motel, right on Long Island Avenue in Sag Harbor. For many years the sign read, “Whalers Motel-TV-Heated.”

Looking Back: Ghosts in Sag Harbor? Yikes!

On a dark and stormy night when there’s nothing to watch on TV, you might want to don your greatcoat and go snooping for paranormal activities, that is, a search for ghosts.  An old, old house where some foul deed or terrible accident occurred many years ago is a likely place to investigate.

Home: Kathi McCarron — ‘Found and Found’

This year Sag Harbor’s Kathi McCarron will celebrate having a family that she never knew she had. Ancestry DNA and her “search angel,” Marsha, have opened a new and exciting door into Ms. McCarron’s life.

On The Road: The Politics of Holidays

Well, the holidays are officially upon us — or I should say they’re officially upon the inside of my car. At least, that’s what Sirius XM Radio has been telling me since adding Channel 70 to its roster back on November 1.

For The Other Kind Of Leftovers
