Two Years After Sandy – Save the Children Helps Families #GetReady

BY Kathy Zucker • Wednesday, October 29, 2014 6 a.m. Exactly two years ago, on Monday, October 29, 2012, I was in the same position I occupy now. I sat at the desk in my home office in Hoboken, NJ, frantically typing on a computer. What was I doing?

Finding Fun and Friendship From Hoboken, NJ to Times Square, NYC Olive Garden

BY Kathy Zucker • Monday, October 13, 2014 I have been thinking a lot lately about why I blog. If you are looking to get rich via blogging, you need to look elsewhere.

End of Summer Mini-Vacations – Bring Your American Girl to Atlantic City

BY Kathy Zucker • Sunday, September 14, 2014 Every time I take a vacation, I need a vacation. I come home exhausted, with screaming kids fractious from sitting in a car for hours and luggage bursting with dirty laundry. This year I tried an experiment.
