Burying Your Money

If April is the cruelest month, then what of May? With her migratory birds and dotted landscape, she’ll start the day with a harsh wind and finish it with just a trace of a summer breeze. She promises you. May would not be the kindest month, as she lays waste to the daffodil and tulip. Goodbye, pansy, unless you’ve found the shade. Alas, magnolia, hate to let you go, but here come the leaves. May, the month, like the word, is full of potential — the month of lengthening days and the lively desire to be out in it.

As a former editor at Glamour magazine, an artist who has published coloring books, a photographer for The East Hampton Star, and a fashionista, she is always chic.

It’s kind of full circle for Rich. He’s a former member of the Suffolk County Legislature — elected to it at age 22. On the legislature he charted an independent course; indeed, informed independence has been a hallmark of Mr. Schaffer’s route in ... by Karl Grossman

Fighting The Odds

By the time I figure out where the nest is, she’s been there for weeks. Killdeer are masters of invisibility, and when that fails them, they know how to distract with false displays of injury and distress. The birds set up house directly on the ground, making them apparently vulnerable. And you might think, “Stupid bird.” The killdeer, like all birds, are the dinosaurs in our midst. They have evolved and adapted over millions of years, and each one of them is the product of a near-perfected genetic solution to a changed and changing environment. Sure, there seems nothing particularly ... 28 Apr 2021 by Marilee Foster
