Bingeing on ‘The Sopranos’ in Sarasota-Bradenton


I blame the whole Sopranos thing on my dear friends Jack Elka and Hope Yencho. It’s all their fault. About 6 weeks ago while out to dinner with them at our favorite Italian Restaurant (that’s right, Italian) Primo-Ristorante, they told Laura and I that they had really gotten into watching the Sopranos series on Amazon Prime! I smiled and thought, wow, it’s been years since I saw that show. On the drive home, Laura asked me what the Sopranos was all about? My response, “it’s certainly not Mr. Rogers!”

My friend and photographer extraordinaire, Jack Elka invited me yesterday to fly with him over Cortez, Bradenton and Palmetto. I met him at Dolphin Aviation in Sarasota where we met our captain and boarded the Cessna 172. It a very compact single engine plane.

Anna Maria Island is the home of world-renowned photographer, Jack Elka. On most days, Jack can be seen photographing brides and grooms on the beach and also flying his drone to get awesome aerial views of our community.

If you’re one of the thousands and thousands of kids and adults who received a drone for Christmas this year, the big question is “how do I fly this thing”?  Don’t worry, you’re not alone.  If you think you can just take the drone out of the box and start flying, you’re wrong!

The Sarasota Post Record Album of the Week


My favorite album of recorded music is Jack Jones sings Michel Legrand. Jack Jones is and has always been my favorite male vocalist of the great American songbook. Sinatra is Sinatra. Tony Bennett is the best, but… Jack Jones has the cleanest, purest, smoothest pipes in the business. His collaboration with Michel Legrand is pure recorded magic and it is pre-digital!
