Beach Bar
May 12, 2017 | 04:13 PM

Just a heads up that our Club will be reopening May 19 & 20 for the 25th season. Beach Bar seems to have outlasted most (if not all) the clubs in Southampton because we still throw a killer party. Party Indoors Party Outdoors we have you covered. Out Theme parties never disappoint as well. In fact the Christmas in July has become a huge weekend for us. This year we add a St Patricks Night on the third weekend in July. Our Restaurant SHUCKERS also opens up on the 20th. Great Food and Fun with live music after the beach. 25 Years is definitely a milestone in any neck of the woods but in the hamptons it's an eternity.

Best of luck for the season and thanks!

Scott

In your eyes
May 12, 2017 | 03:55 PM

Ohhh that song!!

Bless your heart, Kitty.

When my mom was declining, I spent 2 hrs each way on the bus to go see her. It was the only time I've ever been grateful to be unemployed, and those visits are something I hold so very dear. Something I believe deeply is that even when she is agitated, loopy, uncommunicative and knows you not, she's STILL IN THERE. We can't we it, but they're in there, and she loves every time that you walk into the room.

Time, the great enemy, will eventually win, and when that happens, I promise you that you will be so grateful to yourself that you saw her this much.

My heart goes out to you.

😍

Kitty,

What a wonderful read. I hope you found comfort with your pain by writing this down. It sounds like you have. A very difficult time for you and your family. Although you will miss her I hope you might find comfort knowing her memory will return and her pain will be gone once she reunites with Grandma and Grandpa, Ellen Jane, John and Joe.You will see her again. You and the whole family are in my prayers.
Like my Dad would say "she is the BEST"!

I fear that very soon I will be in the same boat (or van) as you. My mother has been diagnosed with MCI, which is an early precursor of dementia.
Beautifully written Kitty. This is a very difficult subject to tackle and you've done it with raw honesty and insight.
XOXO

Great piece on an uncomfortable subject
May 11, 2017 | 11:30 AM

Your story and your Mom's story hits the feelings we as a society will feel now feel as we age and change and lose those we love. Ultimately we must come to grips with the reality that everyone will one day do for others or have others do for us when we struggle with the issues of aging and loss. Keep this up it is news that we must receive by you or through experience.

Kingsley is not a good Mobil Home Park Owner
May 09, 2017 | 02:22 PM

My wife and I are selling our mobile home in Colonial Mobile Manor in Palmetto , Fl. We have claimed about our dope dealing neighbor for three seasons now and to no avail. There is a hint of human smuggling too. Straight pipes on Harleys. Drug deals galore . Manager has not reacted to our complaints. We are selling . We are considering asking for Class Action suit against Kingsley and the mobile home park. Anybody want to talk to a law outfit. Also, let's ask AARP what they think.

Soy, Instead

Dr. Kaayla T. Daniel's The Whole Soy Story tells a very different story than Heather Moore of the PETA Foundation in the Soy,Instead letter to the editor 4-19-17. While working in the natural health care field for over 30 years, I have witnessed many catastrophic health problems develop in those following a vegan diet and in their offspring.I became very sick following a vegan diet for nearly 30 years. I think it is time the proponents of soy and vegan diets tell the whole truth about what has really happened for the majority of people over the past decades using vegan diets.It is dangerous and unethical not to.

April 26, 2017 | 10:33 AM

Hi, so I would just like to point out that while fishing groups are correct in saying that the construction phase will disrupt fish populations, that's not the whole story. Offshore wind farms have been operating across Europe for years and multiple studies have been done on this topic. The results consistently show that once in operation the farms actually become thriving habitats for fish and shellfish populations because the structures serve as artificial reefs. Also, since fishing is then limited in the areas they have seen increases in spawning and increases in populations throughout the food chain.

They Will Come
April 26, 2017 | 01:46 AM

Of course another fun article Jerry, but ! Whether in 1977 or 2017, saying to a woman of any age (as you did back when), "If I said you had a beautiful body would you hold it against me?" is not flirting "" it's a direct "hit". And, if I might say, a bit cliché. Because women with beautiful bodies already know it and the last thing they need is some "old" guy stating the obvious.
As those who know me best can attest, I've had more than my fair share of office interludes with female staffers throughout my advertising agency career, but they never started with a "line" from me. More like an unexpected or uncharacteristic glance they noticed from me, signaling that they got my attention. Sometimes inadvertently through my voice, which some have said could be pretty silky at times, with some unusual tone or inflection. And hey ! some might even say I was pretty good-looking at the time. But it was all happenstance and the first "real move" usually came from them. No O'Reilly power plays from me; no empty promises; no disrespect to them "" ever. Never really looking for anything beyond just getting the job done.
But "shit happens" and I would suggest to all today that there is a time and a place for fooling around ! and the office isn't the place! Because what used to seem like innocent good fun can now be perilously legal and financial. Moreover, while Ailes and O'Reilly left with millions of dollars when they got fired, their personal reputations are shot forever.
Which is to say to all men, both young and old, if you've truly got the goods and you're always the gentleman, they will come.
