Happy Birthday to my sister Judy born on Thanksgiving 1960. Here’s a post on today that is dedicated to her. 

If you feel lonely or depressed this holiday season, please contact The American Foundation of Suicide Prevention. There are people there that know what you are going through and can help.
Also if you’re lonely, and you want to meet friends, check out the various Meet Up’s in our areas. There are dozens and dozens of organizations with have members who have a similar interest as you. The bottom line is they want to meet other people too. I can’t stress how wonderful that organization is.
Finally if you have a substance problem, please check out the many AA, NA or OA organization in our area. If could save a life, your life.

Dr. Jennifer Caudle Celebrates Her Birthday With Friends at Ocean Prime

Last Thursday was one of those epic days where I covered about 6 events, and one of those twice a year days where I either left my notebook at the last event, or it got loss in the abyss of my life. I did go to some fun parties, and I was able to piece together a little of what went on, but if a picture tells a thousand words these photos are the complete story.

 Dr. Jennifer Caudle, D.O., a board-certified Family Medicine
physician. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the department
of Family Medicine at Rowan University- School of Osteopathic Medicine.
She’s on TV, we’re both on Fox 29 and she invited me to come by and shoot a few photos of her friends at her birthday party at one of my fav restaurants Ocean Prime. 
 Erika von Tiehl, Kate Bilo both from CBS3, with Jen and guest.

 Dennis Bianchi, Vice President and General Manager of WTXF FOX 29 (It’s kinda embarrassing to misplace my notebook on this entry since he’s kinda my “boss” over there at Fox; makes me look well disorganized or something. Oh well it happens.) Jen Groover, entrepreneur (I ran into her earlier in the day at the BenFM Luncheon which I wrote about yesterday.) Dr Jen, and Chris Blackman  Media/Communications (10 years as News Director at NBC10 til 2012)

Pa Ballet dancer Edward Barnes (Don’t miss the magic! December 7-29 at the Academy of Music.), Dr Jen and guest. I needed to run out the door lickedy split to catch the Blue Claw opening party, but heard such notables as Brittney Ship, Christine Madella, and Mike Jerrick arrived after I left.
Happy Birthday Dr Jen!!

I popped into WMMR and caught “The Steve & Preston Show” morning show producer, Marisa Magnatta, getting ready for the “Totally Office Calendar 2014” release party by adding some sparkle from Swarovski.
Marisa was in the studio for a bit before heading out to meet the rest of “The Steve & Preston Show” crew that night at Xfinity Live. She brought some serious va-va-vroom to the producer’s room in these Swarovski Dark Fit Earrings and Smoothly Crossover Pendant.
Check out Marisa glamming it up with the studio mics.
I think my favorite Swarovski look is this fierce rocker-chic one. What do you think?
Thanks for “Getting Caught In Your Swarovski,” Marisa.
