I had asked a few people by email, to guess what color I dyed my hair. Two guessed brown. The third person had the best answer: "The answer is easy! What hair!" This person is Jason,and he has made an announcement today, shown below:
Hello all,

On Christmas Eve, I proposed marriage to my girlfriend of 6 1/2 years, Patricia Murphy.

She said YES!

Now we have to think about the wedding, look for a house, etc.

A new chapter in life.

An additional comment has been added to my essay page regarding the Laurie Story. A new additional picture has been posted to the bottom of my Homstead page. Its the largest photo I have ever posted.
As I predicted, and expected, P. C. Richard & Son is moving and taking over the former Carle Place flagship location of the late The Wiz store. This is a jewel of a location, on Old Country Road, NW corner directly across from Roosevelt field. P.C.R.&S has been below the hill and LIRR tracks, just beyond the former The Wiz parking lot, on Voice Road. Shortly before The Wiz closed all of its stores forever, almost a year ago, they abandoned their original location from 1977(?) next door, and finally took over The Great American Drug Store. The original location is totally renovated more upscale than the location ever was, and is now two new Bombay stores. After many renovations and many re-renovations that Cablevision spent their subscriber’s money on in just a few months, that store is gutted once more yet again for the oldest and largest appliance and electronic store chain of the area (P.C.R.&S.). Just down the Old Country Road, in Westbury, Is its only National competitor, Best Buy, and Circuit City, which used to be the competitor to both. I believe CC has lost its way, and it’s only a matter of time.

A new Pier One store is replacing what is left of the former Pergament in Lake Success. Walmart would be a good replacement for the location in Garden City Park.

Netflix: My So-Called Life
Netflix: "My So-Called Life (5-Disc Series)

I may not write “My Life…� yet, or at least the content may change. “My So Called Life� seems to be its sequel. In chronological order then the next two sequels should be “Sex and the City� and “Six Feet Under�. So far I find these series’ to be among the best produced for television since St. Elsewhere and Northern Exposure. I was not sure about “My So-Called Life� at first. With the character development, issues addressed, writing, and acting, I have grown to love it. These three dramas mentioned are outstanding! My So-Called Life is the most outstanding drama series ever! It is so realistic and refreshing. It is what so-called “life� is about. This is what the DVD was invented for. I am amazed to see that this was on TV in 1994 and I missed it! It’s a crime and a shame that the series was at the mercy of advertisers on ABC. Those TV shows of the fifties, sixties, and seventies were as unrealistic, stupid and insulting as this series is not."

Proposes to simplify the tax system by closing corporate loopholes and providing incentives for small businesses to create jobs.
