Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals at Jenks Club in Point Pleasant, NJ, July 15, 2014

SAM_5313Me with Felix Cavaliere

It was a stormy night at the Jersey Shore, but my husband Dennis and I braved the storm to check out Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals at Jenk’s Club.

We had the time of our lives. We got a sweet seat at the bar and had a super cool bartender named David who thought he was unfamiliar with the music, but turned out he really liked all the songs and kept asking my husband which songs were Felix’s. The three of us were in such awe. I couldn’t help but cry during, “It’s a Beautiful Morning” and “Groovin’.” Other favorites were “How Could I Be Sure,” “Good Love,” “You Better Run” (later recorded by Pat Benatar), and “I Ain’t Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore” (which was co-written by my friend Lori Burton who I knew since I was 15), sung by the drummer.

Felix also did songs by Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, and Sly and the Family Stone.

A really great time! I’m ecstatic!

My “Newsies” Lecture at Brielle Public Library

SAM_4357“Extra, extra, hear all about it!”

I was so honored to present my lecture: “Newsies: History of the Newspaper Industry” at the Brielle Public Library last night. I’ve worked in the newspaper industry most of my adult life prior to becoming an author. I had a great time and met some amazing people there!

I’ll be presenting this lecture two more times this week at assisted living facilities.

It was so cool, we showed up extra early and Leslie, the director, provided mineral water. Very classy!

Hmmm… where shell we eat?

Grabbed some clams on a half shell and coleslaw at Jake’s. We had a great time!
