Appeal for Help to Prevent Street Closure

There's not a customer of Thai Rock that at one time or another has asked me about parking, well guess what? Our NYC DOT is considering closing down Beach 94th Street from the Police Station to Beach Channel Drive in an effort to help bicyclists cross the street. 

 

Not only will we lose the parking along Beach 94th Street, we will lose one of the few access ways the get us from Rockaway Beach Blvd to Beach Channel Drive, the next nearest cross-over point is at Beach 98th Street.  The city rarely considers local impact when it comes to the Rockaways and here's another issue they want to shove down our throats. 

 

Please come to the one and ONLY presentation by DOT Wednesday March 25th at the Knights of Columbus 333 Beach 90th St Rockaway Beach and let your voice be heard.  Help us preserve the limited access and parking we have and lets request a smarter solution.  Check out the plans at this link.

On Passion

 

Relationships are personal investments, regardless of their nature be it business, family, friendship, schoolmate, teacher/student, and so many more.  An investment is time, energy, or matter spent in the hope of future benefits actualized.  Our most basic life teachings, from early on, in the sandbox or learning how to share stress relationship building, the fundamental basis for social survival.  Why do we become upset, agitated, uncomfortable or angry when someone lets us down, or does not perform as well as we expected, it's because we realize our investment has gone bad.  On the other hand, when a relationship exceeds our expectations, we become elated, that same way as when we find out our house doubled in value.

When your investment is in people, anything can happen, and it usually does.  It takes time, a real long time, to build a rock solid confident relationship, especially in later years.  My grandfather told me it took him 25 years to only begin to know my grandmother.  I had a difference of opinion the other day with my wife and this was one of those issues that was important to both of us, I mean, really important and we were on polar opposite sides.  The funny thing is, as much as I disagreed with her, I loved her the more, for her side made sense to her and I knew that, and understood that, and in so doing could never be upset with her, frustrated, for sure, but she did not let me down, she stayed steady and held to her convictions.

I worry for the younger folks, so much less effort being put into relationship building and so much more time spent in technology isolation, plugged in and turned off.  If Thai Rock is anything, I wish it to be a place where relationship building is promoted and people investments are enhanced.  

If you've got a good Thai Rock experience, please share it, I'd love to know how we are part of your world.  Kids, take off your headsets, put your games on pause, come over and give your father a hug.


Be well,

Robert :~)
