    (text en català a continuació) Speaking of “hey look at me!” posts… early last year I thought I wanted to do a series of video podcasts that featured (rather, sort of compared and contrasted) Barcelona and New York. I go back and forth quite a bit so I thought I could get plenty of fresh footage on an ongoing basis […]

    This is scary stuff! I fly transatlantic all the time on Delta / Northwest. I take an Ambien and I sleep. I also wear earplugs. If the guy that tried to bring this plane down had been sitting next to me I probably would have slept right through it. I hate airports. I hate all the security rigmarole you have […]

    I’m in Israel on a bit of business but mostly pleasure. It’s very impressive, even moving!! So much history, so many familiar names and places. I’ll write more on being here in a future post. Disclaimer – The camel in this video is the first and only camel I’ve seen here. This is a modern, first world, wealthy country. Sometimes […]

    I usually run on the east side, along the East River, facing Brooklyn and around a very nice track over there which isn’t as hard on my knees, but the west side is so much more scenic. It was a beautiful day out today. So here it is:

    After Silicon Valley I went to Phoenix to visit my family before heading back to New York. When in town, I usually go running along the canal next to my parents’ house but that’s not very scenic so for the video I talked Dad into taking me a few miles away to South Mountain Park. Beautiful place. Anyway, it’s October […]
