To The Editor Of Greenwich Roundup


I have read your blog for a little over a year now

Daily I look forward to the tart headlines that create a kind of contemporary town history of Greenwich .

Your blog lets those in the know know what else they should know about.

God bless you for your willingness to tell the rest of the story.

I love you, kiss.



Dear Juliette,

Thank you for your very kind words.

I especially liked the, "Your blog lets those in the know know what else they should know about."

If it is alright I want to make it the new tag line for the blog.

But please be careful with this, "I love you, kiss" stuff.

I am married to a very jealous Korean woman who knows Tae Kwon Do and is capable of sending us both to the Greenwich Hospital Emergency Room with sever injuries.

In addition, Balducci’s announced the closing of two other stores, in Ridgefield, Conn., and Washington, D.C.

The management called those four stores “underperforming.” (Five other Balducci’s stores, which are evidently “performing,” will continue to operate in Virginia, Maryland, and Scarsdale, N.Y.)

The Greenwich store, which was formerly a Hay Day Market is supposedly "preforming" according to Balducci’s managers, but Greenwich business and real estate insiders tell Greenwich Roundup that might not be true.

However, when Greenwich Roundup visited the store to today it appeared to be somewhat busy.......
