This photograph illustrates the overlap of photojournalism and fine art photography.  The lighting and the composition are beautiful, and the image tells a story that goes with the article.

The NY Times has a marvelous photography staff, and their photo section is best viewed on their e-edition, preferably with a retina-vision Apple screen.  You can also buy signed photographs by their staff.

From Oklahoma:      Horses make me think of this show by Rodgers and Hammerstein III  especially when Curly rides a horse on stage at the opening. He sings “Oh What a Beautiful Morning.”

But this time we have the “Farmer and the Cowman.”

Every year, the day after Labor Day, it feels like we are getting our town back.  It’s almost like magic, because it is so less congested—many hundreds of cars and people simply vanish.  It reminds me of the show Brigadoon where a small town in Scotland vanishes and then reappears, albeit, every one hundred years.

Here is a song from that original Broadway cast with Shirley Jones and Jack Cassidy, selected by Eileen who loves Brigadoon.  “The Heather on the Hill.”

Of course, we have Rosa Rugosa on the dunes.

One of the many glorious numbers from Paul Simon’s musical Capeman. While it had a very short run due to production flaws, (e.g. I read it ran way too long, over 3 hrs), I also recently read it may be made into a TV musical of some sort. I hope so because it really deserves a wide audience. SG   (Stephen Goldfinger)

July is blueberry time in New Jersey. A favorite way to enjoy them is in pancakes.

You’ll need a nonstick griddle. Heat on medium.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and place two parchment lined cookie trays in the oven.

This will keep the cooked pancakes warm while you  cook the remainder of the batter.


1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

3 tablespoons sugar

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/4 cups buttermilk

2 large eggs, lightly whisked

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted for the batter

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted for the griddle

3 cups fresh blueberries

pure maple syrup


Preheat griddle.


In a large bowl whisk together the first four ingredients.

In a medium size bowl whisk together the buttermilk, eggs and butter.

Gently mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and then fold in the blueberries.

Do not over mix the batter, leave it lumpy, or the pancakes will become tough.

Brush a thin layer of butter on the griddle. Drop a 1/3 of a cup of batter on the griddle.

Flip the pancakes when little bubbles begin to show on the top and the bottom begins to brown. Allow the second side to brown. Then transfer pancakes to the trays in the oven.

Add more butter to the griddle as needed. Continue making pancakes, keeping the finished ones warm in the oven.

Serve with real maple syrup.

Makes 12 pancakes.


Have a cup of Joe with your pancakes, and,  at the diner, be careful how you  say “I’d like a short stack ” to the waitress.

“COFFEE IN A CARDBOARD CUP.”   From the Broadway show  “70, Girls, 70” by Kander and Webb who wrote Cabaret.
