Who says you have to leave Long Island to have a great time in the summer? We have everything right here!
On Friday night we had reservations at Peppercorns Restaurant on East Marie Street in Hicksville with Paul and Jerilye Streich. The four of us were placed at a corner table, and it was cozy and easy to have a conversation. The service was gracious and the food was delicious.
New York State Assemblyman Charles D. Lavine (D-Glen Cove) has issued a statement on Governor David Paterson’s selection of Richard Ravitch for New York’s Lieutenant Governor.
On one of our earliest dates, Lorraine brought along a large newspaper wrapped container. We were babysitting for Caren, Lorraine’s niece, then 2 or 3 years old, now 48 with three grown children. What was in this surprise package?

We are surrounded by local farms, as well as people who make and sell handmade crafts and other sundries, so be sure to visit:
