Great South Bay Sunset

Here is a sunset from the South Shore of Long Island. As I watch a sunset I am always in awe that this is just an average star in our galaxy, one of about a billion, and 1,300,000 times the size of our little planet.

It’s a rare Weekend posting in my little “Long Island” category of the blog. Just a little something I snapped from the phone that I wanted to share…

Graduation Season is Here. What is my Alma Mater Up To?

Graduation Season is here on Long Island and most Colleges in the area will have their Graduation ceremonies in about 30 days. I had recently taken a tour of my alma mater, SUNY Farmingdale and noticed some significant changes in only the 5 years since I graduated. It’s a good sign for the Island that we have a Technology College in the heart of Long Island. Here’s what they are working on:

First Shots of the New Westbury Plaza on Long Island

Long Island is changing fast! I might have to do more postings about this… Decided to post up some pictures of the new Westbury Plaza in Westbury, Long Island. First store to open is the Container Store. It’s the first Container Store on Long Island and from what I hear, the company is very picky as to the locations they choose to setup.

Always Use an AT&T Corporate Store

This is my advice for anyone who is an AT&T customer or is thinking of becoming one… Always use an AT&T corporate store when buying a phone or making any type of AT&T purchase. Not all AT&T stores are the same and if you happen to notice your in an AT&T Authorized reseller, run the other way. Why do I say that? Authorized resellers are independent operators and their standards are not up to the same standards as a true AT&T store.

Now as I do my daily travels I am finding Time Warner and Comcast are both entering Long Island. My favorite WiFi hotspots now have more choices for me to connect to the… Read More

Long Island Blogger – Am I Alone?

 “Where is it all coming from?” All over! Some of my subscribers are even coming from Mexico. With that being said I’m going to start posting more with Long Island in mind. It’s a no brainer since I do live here. First off, let me say that I have lived my entire life on Long Island. I have watched the Island change over the last 30 years and I myself have changed along with it. Unfortunately not everyone from my generation was able to change with the times and many of my… Read More
