As a native Westporter, we grew up playing pond hockey whenever the ponds froze. I was part of The Round Pond Crew. Our pond was located on South Compo Rd right before Longshore. I think back then we had colder winters because we skated all the time. I was over joyed to find another pond where my kids and their friends can play. The baby only lasted a half hour, but the big kids skated the whole day. I hope it does not get warm out for awhile. If the ponds melt, you can always visit The Longshore Skating Rink. Or, you can call me, I know where all the ponds are.


Samantha’s Bat Mitzvah was held at The Fairview Country Club in Greenwich. It is a fabulous club located in North Greenwich.The setting was perfect for Samantha to read from The Torah. Sam’s father works for Ernst and Young (who counts all votes for The Grammy’s,) so her Mitzvah theme was the red carpet. Real cute. My kids are addicted to “Cake Boss,” a reality show about a bakery¬† owner from New Jersey who makes awesome cakes. I guess if you have your own show, you have to make real good cakes. Samantha’s cake was made by Carlos Bakery, aka, The Cake Boss. I give the cake two thumbs up!
