After six weeks in Florida and a week in the Bahamas, I am back and once again left in Bay Ridge. And the Northeast weather has slapped me back to reality: Rainy, cold and gray. Oh how I miss my blue skies and warm sunshine.

My three year old daughter, who is of the same mind as me when it comes to weather, and I were discussing the yucky weather this morning. She said to me, "You know what else is yucky, daddy?"

"What else is yucky, sweety?"

"Staten Island."

So very true.

At varied points in my childhood, we lived in - or had family in - every borough EXCEPT Staten Island.
My mother's maxim was: "If you're ever tempted to move there, see a shrink."
