The New York governor’s race has become unexpectedly close.

Two days after early voting started in New York, and nine days before Election Day 2022, Democratic candidates and supporters – largely from labor unions – gathered for the Nassau County Rally with Governor Hochul.

Twice Around the Bellmore Family Street Festival

The first Saturday in autumn, August 25th, Bob and I visited the 34th Annual Bellmore Family Street Festival. The food, the smells, the crafts… were tantalizing, and the people were the highlight of the afternoon.

As we walked to the carnival rides at the opposite end of the festival, I ate grilled corn on the cob, chatted at various political booths, and browsed at countless crafts booths, including one where I bought a solar powered blue bird for my front garden.

We were about to leave when we ran into my daughter Sue’s family, so the five of us headed off together towards the carnival rides and ices.
