Daddy-Daughter Date with Claudia

Very much enjoyed spending time on a Daddy-Daughter Date to Leonetti’s Pastry shop with my eldest daughter Claudia. We engaged in some very good, honest, thoughtful dialogue about life. God has great plans for this young lady, and I am excited to see what the future holds for my bright, artistic, creative girl.



Let’s Play Ball!

On Monday Natalia had her first-ever school softball game. She looks really solid as a catcher, and the team played great, winning 17-0. Proud of our little ball player!

First Live Rap in 20 Years!

Last week I did a little rap in a song at our Shelter Rock Church Easter Service in the NYCB Theatre at Westbury. It was the first time I have rapped live in 20 years. A little rusty, but sure was fun.

Here’s the video of the message I preached at Shelter Rock Church Manhasset a few weeks ago. Sorry for the poor quality. We were experiencing some technical difficulties.

Birthday 2014 Pics

This morning Adriana and I had coffee with some of our dear friends from Michigan, Tony and Kim Brani, whom we lived with for about a month 17 years ago. We haven’t seen them in about 15 years, and it was so great reconnecting with them while they were in town here in NY. Adriana and I then drove to Freeport for lunch on the water. We then drove to Jones Beach and enjoyed sitting and enjoying the sight and sound of the beautiful ocean waves crashing This evening our family went out for dinner at Benihana. Family, friends, and food. Just the way I love celebrating my birthday. Thanks to all for the kind birthday wishes.IMG_2575
