Playdate In Space With Real Housewives of New Jersey – Liberty Science Center

BY Kathy Zucker • Monday, December 22nd, 2014 Some of my dearest friends pop up every day on my phone. I see their pictures, laugh at their kid and pet antics, and send virtual hugs.

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?
