It was Christmas in July at the Toy Building in New York City last week to display K’nex Industries’ new Lincoln Logs that split apart before your very eyes, Magnetic Poetry that makes instant poets out of a child with easy to use poetry kit to make necklaces etc with messages. The Malibu toys previewed " Cosmic Giggles" which feature Light Up Press On Nails, jewelry and other items coming out this Fall and should be a big hit. Silver Dolphin Books that really teach such as: Inventor’s Handbook; Let’s Start Finger Painting and, among others Uncle Milton Industries with their Ant Farm that provides a rock climbing wall, Speedway, a Max Velocity Bungee jump and more. It should be a Christmas to Remember in December.

The Mac World Expo brought out many Apple Computer users to the Javit’s Center to show consumers their new innovative software that organizes work more efficiently and with greater speed. Their editing equipment is outstanding and enables anyone to turn out professional videos on their own.

Bob Zelek was the top winner for the Belle Harbor Yacht Club golfing tournament. Congratulations, Bob.

This year he is concentrating on repairing his knee. He is due to enter South Nassau Hospital in three weeks for an operation. Good luck, Bob and speedy recovery.

Kennedy’s super bartender, Tom Cotie recently returned from a 17 day fabulous trip to Irelands with the whole family.

Have you seen the new Breezy Point Surf Shop? If you haven’t, you must get over there. Donald Ritter, owner and proprietor of the Breezy Point Super Market outdid himself with this shop. He not only has surf boards but attractive shorts and trunks and wet suits, but pretty ladies bathing suits for only $14.99, reef sandals for the lowest price you can pay, roller blade wheels and just about everything you might need for the beach…even attractive Breezy Point Tee Shirts. (Read the Ad and see what else). Stop in there and see it, It is behind the Dug Out across from the Ball field, by the Club House parking lot. Why travel when you can fill your needs steps away? And, those who are steps away are welcome, too.

Some of you have commented my hair is shorter than usual. Well, it is summertime. "Gary" of Studio J is my coifing expert and thinks it looks "Cool". It is an easy "do" and makes sense for this time of year. You always do comment on my professionally done nails by Janet , herself. This week I wore the elegant French design and got raves about it.

Duplicate bridge player Charlie Reass celebrated his retirement at a party hosted by his wife, Chris and two sons, Ryan and Christopher on July 21. Charlie has thirty years under his belt as a Police Officer. Many members of his family and friends were in attendance as well as the Police Department’s Ceremonial Unit of which Charlie served. All had a great time!

In another month our beautiful summer will be over. It is time then when most of us start thinking of the holidays and sprucing up the house. And, if we can find a place that sells beautiful imported leather sofas and chairs and end tables wholesale, why not go there? Yes, there is a place right in Arverne called I&I Distributor, Inc. Igor Eifrer just opened it and people are raving about the imported pieces.. Take a ride over there and see what he has. You may find just what you are looking to suit your budget.
