The P.S. Weekly Top Five

This week’s list is—as always during this time of year—motivated by the blow-through-your-brains cold that has descended upon us this week, and is inspired by comfort. The comfort may be literal, it may be figurative (and require you to actually leave your house), but each offering provides some sort of consolation; a lovely reassurance like…

The Balanced Guy: On Cool Pools

If, like me, you live in Central Jersey and are a bit of an architecture aficionado, I highly suggest you take a trip over to Hightstown and check out the new pool at The Peddie School. A pre-fab, steel building with a cee-ment pond it ain’t. Don’t get me wrong, steel pre-fabs are fantastic in…

Walking—and Eating and Drinking and Shopping—in a Winter Wonderland

Nothing makes me happier on a lazy Sunday than hopping into the car and heading into Lambertville for breakfast and a jaunt around town. The unique shops (personal must-sees include Area Home and Lime Boutique, but that’s a topic for another day’s blog), the art galleries, the antique stores, the chocolate-chip pancakes at Sneddon’s… Before…

Everything Is Illuminated at Stuart

I was coloring with my niece the other day, a full-size outline of her body that I had traced with a giant marker onto three taped-together sheets of a fantastic, giant Crayola Drawing Pad (sidebar: the pad is perfect for all kinds of creating and covers a large enough area so that your little Van…

Simply Extraordinary

Call it urban legend, or Internet lore, but I have heard of some pretty astonishing feats of superhuman parenting. Like the mom who lifted a 1964 Chevy Impala off of her son trapped beneath its wheels; and the father who rescued his daughter from being crushed by a large boulder. (To wit, I recently flung…

The Balanced Guy: On Greenbacks

If you’ve got airline miles or other “points” from your credit card or other loyalty programs, here’s something I recently figured out (I’m slow; sue me): If you want to cash them in for merchandise instead of a ticket to paradise, think carefully before doing so. Earlier this month, I received a letter from our…

Go Fetch

On Saturday night, I ate a number 16 from Hoagie Haven (i.e. a bacon cheesesteak) with Muhammad Ali. Okay, maybe he wasn’t the real Ali (and maybe I did put mayonnaise and ketchup on my sandwich), but he was pretty darn close. I was, in fact, sitting across a table from Evan Parke, the actor…

THE P.S. WEEKLY TOP FIVE

Since I find this time of year only as inspiring as the couch and the television tuned to Project Runway, I thought I would help motivate others with the same malaise with this week’s list. The theme? Action. Doing. Getting-up-and-going. Herewith, I’ve collected a couple of ideas for things you can do that not only…
