Rita Clark was 90years old when she celebrated her birthday at Kennedy’s a week ago with Mat Jenkins and his wife Eileen, her son Christopher, daughter Marilyn Rajner, and her four sisters Helen, Leggio, Theresa Knapp, Florence Martin and nine grandchildren and another in the womb. Nearby was Sean Edward Rivera who had fun at Kennedy’s on his eighth birthday with his Mom, Laura Rivera, sister Kaelin, Aunt. Patricia Nelson, Helen Johnson and Barbara Fish along with grandparents, Kathleen and Edward Johnson of Belle Harbor. Sean was born Nov. 11, 1996.

Had a wonderful dinner with Helene and Peter Danziler at Kennedy’s two weeks ago. Whether it was the fish of the meat the chef prepared, it was very tasty. This was before Helene had her third stent in her arteries because of open heart surgery and it did not work. She came through with flying colors and is back home now, thanking all for their prayers.

Grace Kane, four years old, had fun at the Sensory Spa where her friend, Adrian Murray marked his fifth birthday with John and Jean, brother, Jack and sister, Caroline.

Karen and Patrick O’Brien in Kennedy’s, married over a year with Karen’s Grandpa, Leica Galleo.

Hotel/Motel Show at the Javits Center announced awards to: Kenneth F. Kine, “Best of Show” for its self cooking center, which automatically calculates temperature, moisture and cooking time. Anyone can be a great cook with this operation. Decor took an award for it Odyssey Lock; Flavors for its tartlet shells by Croc’in made without color agents for hors d’oeuvres or desserts; Technology went to Teledex LIC for its Espress Net Air Link to use property phone lines to become access wireless point; Essentials for Clean Rest Mattress Cover; Luxury for its Riverside design Butterfly plate. Then the University of Florida claims they turn out excellent hoteliers.

At the exciting Digital Show found a musical watch that plays music wherever your go. Mr. John Gegansie was my guest on WNYX to demonstrate it.

Some of you Breezy Pointers love the food and wine tasting events and you most certainly would have had your fill this past week. There was the Italian Moscata Wines at Le Cirque with accompanying sweets At the Arno Restaurant, Croatian wines were featured that were really outstanding. In fact we were told Brucha full-bodied smooth red wine will give you the same effect at VIAGRA. Drink the wine, sleep for a few hours and Voila! You are a new man!

The Advertising Hall of Achievement awards luncheon was held at Cipriani on 42 St., and the winners were: Paul Cain, publisher of People; Susan Crestle, EVP; creative director, BBDO, N.Y.; Matt Freeman, CEO, Tribal DDB Worldwide; Stacey Lynn Koener; EVP; director, global research integration, initiative; Aldo Quevedo, managing partner, executive director, Duests Harmel and Partners; Julie Roehm, director marketing communications, Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge Brands. A beautiful event with beautiful, bright people.

Took a tour of the Prenatal Ward at NYU and must say they have the best and most efficient Hospital Unit to serve our premature babies. If you are faced with this problem do check them out. The rating is very high.
