The coming two weeks I’ve been looking forward to. Some peace and quiet. 😻 We’ll be relaxing in a quiet coastal area, away from the business of the city. In a simple Dutch holiday cottage. 10 minutes away from the beach (a less touristic one 🙂 ) by bicycle. I haven’t been there in at […]

Unrecognized by most Americans today, Anna Ella Carroll made her way in the male-dominated world of 1850’s politics by asking the right questions and explaining complicated legal matters in laymen’s terms–the power of her pen. Much of border-state Maryland around her embraced the South, she clung to the Union and maintained long-term, pen-pal relationships with […]

the madness within

It’s Sunday, fun day and I didn’t get out of bed until 3pm. I had a horrible night, couldn’t find sleep nor take it when it finally came in bursts. After falling asleep around 530 in the morning I awoke to my dogs barking because they wanted to go out EARLY but I just couldn’t […]

“I wonder what it was like to be around in the 60,” he said casually, peering at me out of the corner of his eye. “I’m taking this history class . . .” Not an active question. I tried to respond, but I couldn’t pull together a meaningful response. So I started thinking about it […]

Do all people believe in “Mother Nature”? If you believe in God, is it frowned upon to believe in Mother Nature, or how about Karma? I don’t know how that “works”, just in how I believe. . . I think of Mother Nature to be a force, producing the weather, specifically. Maybe it’s more of […]

By Maurice Schill Saying thank-you is one of these things we do as humans, that has become so intrinsic and automatic that we don’t give it much thought. In many cases we are told from a young age it’s polite. I can still picture vividly the times where my mother was on my back saying […]

At-A-Glance Emergency In Effect As Dangerous Temperatures Arrive Con Edison Promises ‘Safe, Reliable’ Service Over Weekend New York City Cooling Centers Open Summer Heat Survival Guide HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Thanks to Mother Nature, a Long Island animal rescue has been turned into a swelter shelter. The air conditioning was knocked out Wednesday by a lightning strike, and now employees are looking for help to keep the animals safe, CBS2’s Dave Carlin reported Sunday evening. Water bowls need refilling more often than usual for the 300 cats of Little Shelter on Warner Road. The unit that fed cool air to them was destroyed by lightning Wednesday, just in time for the heat wave that has gripped the Tri-State Area for the last several days. “We are taking blankets away from a lot of the shelves, so that they will lie on a cool surface,” shelter volunteer Diana Cutolo said. A Long Island animal shelter is looking for donations after lightning took out its air conditioning unit. (Photo: CBS2) The animals are getting half the usual space, kept darker and chilled only somewhat by donated fans and one portable a/c unit. Employees showed Carlin what the storm did to the non-profit shelter. “That tree across that’s across the way did not have that scorch mark on it before the lightning hit it and then it looks like it traveled well down to here,” shelter executive director David Ceely said. A 7-foot stone memorial fountain was blown to bits. “Pieces of it flew everywhere,” Ceely said. Rebuilding the fountain, however, is not the priority. Getting a new HVAC for cool air is. Insurance, however, won’t cover a replacement, Ceely said. Ceely priced out the cost of a replacement unit and the estimate is $20,000, Carlin reported. A call for donations went out Wednesday and by the weekend Little Shelter was more than half way to a goal of $30,000 that includes money to rewire and get the phone system back. Giving money is not the only way to help. Ceely is asking for the public to please adopt. “This is ‘Uno.’ He’s one of our special cats. What we’re really hoping for, adoptions are always so helpful,” Ceely said. “When you adopt you save two lives, the one that you adopt and the ones that we are going to be able to save because you made space for that.” Little Shelter also has 75 dogs housed in a separate area not damaged by the storm. “There are such great dogs, such great cats here. Hopefully, they’ll get homes soon,” Massapequa resident Lori Harfenes said. The best scenario: a stormy, hot week ends with animals finding families in a flash.
