Everyone is here and accounted for on the island of Martha’s Vineyard and having a blast.

Cosmopolitan Review August 14-20, 2014

Yeah, it’s still summer.

July started out with a spark and ended with a bang as celebrations were popping off everywhere.

It is a region of the Middle East, which can best be located by today’s geographical description as ISIS territory.

Cosmopolitan Review

Rolling out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer, and life’s never been so good. Except for the unrest that plagues the Middle East and Ukraine.

While weather for the month of June ended on a picture perfect day, all was not so in the hood. Once again, peace failed to reign as gun violence erupted just as the sun had set and the sky was still lit at twilight. Eerily close to home, the victim lay dead in front of the old Meat Masters, located on 133rd Street at Fifth Avenue.

Cosmopolitan Review June 26- July 2, 2014

June has to be one of my favorite months of the year. The weather is sunny and warm, the humidity has yet to set in and the nights are good for sleeping. It’s the time for graduations, and it’s such a joy to see the caps, gowns, white dresses and young men in their suits and ties.
