Catskill Mountains

A REAL Catskill Vacation

Share:

Swan Lake, NY.   Swan Lake? What’s there?   A lot.   A whole lot.   Probably a lot more than you even thought to think about, actually.   But in its own, unassuming way, this pristine part of the Catskills retains much of the beauty of the old-world mountains, without the crowds and traffic you’d find in the more popularly known towns. And it is quiet. Much nicer and...

Of Miracles & Memories…

Share:

…and Rusty Nails Reused   By S.A. Rowner   It was made of memories and miracles. And it was ingeniously expandable to any size it needed to be.   A feat of engineering, you might think. But certainly not according to the laws of physics.   Using those principles, the structure probably shouldn’t have stood at all. After all, it had no walls. Not in any definition of walls we...

Cold Feet, Brominated. (Part 2) A Winter (Mis?)Adventure

Share:

On 2020, hot tubs, quarantine, and witches in a blizzard, Part 2 By: S.A. Rowner (continued from part 1)   Uh-oh. Apparently, they sent him to a completely different house than what he’d booked, and it looked nothing even remotely like the pictures. Upon reaching out to the owner, she assured them not to worry, she had made a mistake and she owns multiple houses, so don’t worry if it’s...

Cold Feet, Brominated. (Part 1) A Winter (Mis?)Adventure

Share:

On 2020, hot tubs, quarantine, and witches in a blizzard, Part 1 By: S.A. Rowner   And so, as it inevitably happened to so many others these past two years, a friend of mine’s child tested positive for Covid.   As we all learned back in March, 2020 – and some of us are still learning through it – being stuck at home with everyone in quarantine is certainly no...

How Not to Vacation

Share:

Wintertime CAN be fun… or really not…   By: S.A. Rowner   The treadmill of a busy life just doesn’t stop.   And it gets tiring, makes one feel irritable, and sometimes just gets overwhelming. Never mind when enough life situations bombard you at the same time, making it feel like someone threw the speed switch up to the max.   And that’s what happened to a good friend of...

For Heaven’s Sake!

Share:

For Heaven’s Sake!   By: S.A. Rowner   Why I did it is a whole other story, but I used to teach 9th 10th, and 11th-grade boys. In two Yeshiva High Schools.   Ok, teach might be a strong word. You might call torture, or probably more aptly, glorified babysitting where I entertain young adults while attempting to maintain order and convey some information that they’ll find useful enough to...
