Photography at Peconic Bay
Winery
Long Island photographer Susan Tiffen grew up in a
house full of cameras, photographs and books
about photographs. Her father was an avid photographer in his youth and then worked in the photographic industry. “I took tons of photos and went to
art school,” says Susan, “but I never considered
photography as an expression of my art until I was
doing computer graphics, got my first digital camera, and fell in love with Dahlias! The flowers took
me to places I never would have dreamed of.” Now
Susan’s exquisite photos will be exhibited at the
Peconic Bay Winery, 31320 Main Rd. in Cutchogue
from April 1-27. The opening reception takes place
on Sunday, April 3 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more

NANCY CURTIN
Director, Port Washington Library
How long have you lived on Long Island?
I grew up in Massapequa and now live in Garden City.
Tell me about your job at the library.
I have been the director of the Port Washington Public Library
since 1994, but have worked there since 1974. I am only the
fourth director since the Library’s founding in 1892. I work with
a Board of Trustees and implement policy, hire and direct a staff
of 100, manage a $6.7 million dollar budget, and create collections and programs to foster lifelong learning for all ages. I also
work with volunteer groups such as our advisory councils, the
Friends of the Library and the Port Washington Library
Foundation to enhance the Library’s services. I try to make the
Library the community’s living room, where all residents feel
welcome and are able to pursue their interests
How is technology affecting your library and other Long Island
libraries?
Technology is a tremendous tool in the Information Age. People
can now go to the Library’s website and download books, check
our catalog, place a reserve, research databases, even learn a foreign language. E-book circulation is way up and you can download titles for free. I am proud that libraries have adapted so well
in offering technology options to the public.
How has the library changed in the time you've been there?
In 1974 there were no computers, no Internet, and no DVDs.
When someone needed information, it was found in books, magazines, and journals, and reference librarians were busy assisting
people in finding the best sources of that information. Today,
much more of that research is done on-line, so librarians need
even greater skills to find and deliver information.
Whenever I wear something from Eden, I get lots of
compliments!

Boomers on the Threshold
On January 1, 2011, the oldest Baby Boomers
turned 65, and every day for the next 19 years,
about 10,000 more will cross that threshold,
according to the Pew Research Center. In the
1960s, Boomers had high hopes for remaking society, but at the moment, 80% say they are dissatisfied with the way things are going in the country
today. The 79-million-member Baby Boomer generation accounts for 26% of the total U.S. population,
so by force of sheer numbers, they almost certainly will redefine old age in America. However, the
typical Boomer believes that old age doesn't begin
until age 72, and the typical Boomer feels nine
years younger than his or her chronological age.
When asked about the array of changes transforming American family life, the Boomers' views align
more closely with younger generations than older
ones. However, Baby Boomers today are less
accepting than younger Americans of same-sex
couples raising children, unmarried couples living
together and other non-traditional arrangements.
Despite differences among generations, 43% of
Baby Boomers say there is less generational conflict
now than in the 1960s and 1970s, when they were
coming of age.

SLEEP LOSS AND FAT LOSS:
WHAT’S THE CONNECTION?
Cutting back on sleep? You might be hurting your dieting efforts (in addition to your
overall health) according to a study published
recently in the medical journal Annals of
Internal Medicine.
When dieters in the study got a full night's
sleep, they lost the same amount of weight as
when they slept less. So what’s the problem,
right? Well, when dieters got adequate sleep,
more than half of the weight they lost was
fat. But when they cut back on their sleep,
only one-fourth of their weight loss came
from fat.
They also felt hungrier. When sleep was
restricted, dieters produced higher levels of
ghrelin, a hormone that triggers hunger and
reduces energy expenditure.
“If your goal is
to lose fat, skipping sleep is like
poking sticks in
your bicycle wheels,” says study director
Plamen Penev, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor
of medicine at the University of Chicago.
“Cutting back on sleep, a behavior that is
ubiquitous in modern society, appears to compromise efforts to lose fat through dieting. In
our study it reduced fat loss by 55 percent.”
The study subjects lost an average of 6.6
pounds during each 14-day session. During weeks with adequate sleep,
they lost 3.1 pounds of fat and 3.3 pounds of fat-free body mass, mostly
protein. During the short-sleep weeks, participants lost an average of 1.3
pounds of fat and 5.3 pounds of fat-free mass.
The message for people trying to lose weight is clear, Penev says. “For the
first time, we have evidence that the amount of sleep makes a big difference in the results of dietary interventions. One should not ignore the way
they sleep when going on a diet. Obtaining adequate sleep may enhance
the beneficial effects of a diet. Not getting enough sleep could defeat the
desired effects.”
“If your goal is to
lose fat, skipping
sleep is like
poking sticks in
your bicycle
wheels.”
TOO-EARLY ELECTIVE DELIVERIES BECOMING A WORRISOME TREND, DOCTORS SAY
Medical experts point to a disturbing trend of expectant mothers who are
choosing to deliver their babies for non-medical reasons before 39 weeks of
pregnancy. Research published recently in the medical journal Obstetrics &
Gynecology reveals just how prevalent elective deliveries are in the U.S. In
that study of 7,804 women giving birth for the first time, labor was induced
10 • April 2011 • LONG ISLAND WOMAN
in 43.6 percent of the women, and 39.9 percent of those were elective inductions.
A startling number of first-time mothers – 92
percent — believe it’s safe to deliver a baby
before 39 weeks, according to a recent
UnitedHealthcare survey of 650 insured, firsttime mothers. Only eight percent of women
surveyed accurately identified 39 to 40 weeks as
being the earliest point that it is safe to deliver
the baby given no other medical complications
requiring early delivery. Nearly 41 percent of
women believed that 37 to 38 weeks is the earliest point, while more than half the women surveyed chose 34 to 36 weeks.
“Unfortunately, many expectant mothers are
not aware of the risks associated with early
elective C-sections and induced labor.
Expectant mothers may believe that at 36
weeks they have completed their nine months
of pregnancy, but Mother Nature’s formula for
healthy babies is actually 40 weeks,” says Tina
Groat, M.D. and National Medical Director for
Women’s Health at UnitedHealthcare.
A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine revealed that
babies born electively by C-section at 37 weeks were twice as likely to have
health problems, usually respiratory in nature, than babies born at 39 weeks
or later. Infants delivered preterm are at an increased risk of developing
chronic lung disease, cerebral palsy, learning disabilities and behavioral
problems.
“The results of recent studies stress the importance of educating expectant
mothers on the risks associated with elective deliveries prior to 39 weeks.
These early-term births can result in the newborn’s admission to the neonatal intensive care unit, which increases the baby’s hospital stay and health
risks,” Groat says.
“Although the last few weeks of pregnancy can often be physically
uncomfortable, expectant parents should take the opportunity to learn just
how important these weeks are for their baby’s development and health,”
Groat says. “Women should talk with their doctors about the best time to
deliver and the risks of putting convenience before safety.”
STUDIES LOOK AT NEW TECHNIQUES FOR MEASURING
BREAST DENSITY
Two new studies have tested three different methods for accurately measuring breast density, the relative portion of tissue to fat in a woman's breasts
and a strong indicator of breast-cancer risk.
Both studies were conducted by a group of medical physicists at the
University of California, Irvine and were presented recently at the 52nd
Annual Meeting of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine
(AAPM) in Philadelphia.

Women’s Health Update
The first study compared two existing techniques for measuring breast
density: cone-beam computed tomography (CT) and breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It found that both techniques gave highly similar estimates of breast density. The second study showed the promise of a third
technique, called dual-energy mammography, for measuring breast density.
“A better measure of breast density should yield a more accurate assessment of risk for developing breast cancer,” says medical physicist Justin
Ducote, who presented the work on dual-energy mammography in
Philadelphia.
Doctors have known since the 1970s that women who have dense breasts
are at greater risk for developing breast cancer. Tumors may be more difficult to detect when imaging dense breast tissue, since they have a greater
portion of glandular tissue relative to the amount of fatty tissue, and the
glandular tissue can obscure tumors.
Measuring breast density is made difficult by the fact there is no currently accepted gold-standard method for doing so, says Ducote.
WHAT YOUR MARITAL “FIGHT STYLE”
MAY PREDICT ABOUT YOUR MARRIAGE
Most of us probably assume that newlyweds who yell a lot or call each
other names might have a higher chance of
getting divorced. But a new University of
Michigan study shows that other conflict patterns also predict a split.
A particularly toxic pattern appears to be
when one spouse deals with conflict constructively, by calmly discussing the situation, listening to their partner's point of view or trying
hard to find out what their partner is feeling,
for example — and the other spouse withdraws.
“This pattern seems to have a damaging
effect on the longevity of marriage,” says U-M researcher Kira Birditt, first
author of a study on marital-conflict behaviors and implications for divorce
published in the Journal of Marriage and Family. “Spouses who deal with
conflicts constructively may view their partner’s habit of withdrawing as a
lack of investment in the relationship rather than an attempt to cool
down.”
Couples in which both spouses used constructive strategies had lower
divorce rates, Birditt found.
The data are from the “Early Years of Marriage Study,” supported by
funding from the National Institute of Aging and the National Institute of
Child Health and Human Development. It is one of the largest and longest
research projects to look at patterns of marital conflict, with 373 couples
interviewed four times over a 16-year period, starting the first year of their
marriages.
Surprisingly, the researchers found that 29 percent of husbands and 21
percent of wives reported having no conflicts at all in the first year of their
marriage (1986). Nonetheless, 46 percent of the couples had divorced by

year 16 of the study (2002). Interestingly, whether or not couples reported
any conflict during the first year of marriage did not affect whether they
had divorced by the last year studied.
Overall, husbands reported using more constructive behaviors and fewer
destructive behaviors than wives. But over time, wives were less likely to use
destructive strategies or withdraw, while husbands' use of these behaviors
stayed the same through the years.
“The problems that cause wives to withdraw or use destructive behaviors
early in a marriage may be resolved over time,” Birditt says. “Or, relationships and the quality of relationships may be more central to women's lives
than they are to men. As a result, over the course of marriage, women may
be more likely to recognize that withdrawing from conflict or using destructive strategies is neither effective nor beneficial to the overall well-being and
stability of their marriages.”
HELP FOR FIBROMYALGIA PAIN
Chronic muscle pain that is diffuse or moves throughout the body is the
primary symptom of fibromyalgia. The syndrome is often accompanied by
fatigue, bowel disturbances and urinary difficulty.
Fibromyalgia can affect your daily activity, your sleep and even your thinking when you’re worn out and experiencing “brain fog,” says Henri Roca,
M.D., medical director at Greenwich Hospital’s Center for Integrative
Medicine in Cos Cob, Connecticut.
Some people live with a low level of pain and think of it as a part of getting older. Although an exact cause for fibromyalgia has not been identified,
Roca points to hormone imbalance, nutritional deficiencies and gastrointestinal dysfunction as potential triggers. “There’s not a singular reason why people get fibromyalgia,” he explains. “Nothing in the body is independent
from anything else. We work to find the balance.”
Conventional treatment options include medications used for general
pain and medications that change the way the brain receives and processes pain stimuli. People who don’t respond to these medications, and people who don’t want the side effects of these medications, are starting to
look at other ways to relieve their symptoms.
Stress, for some people with fibromyalgia, is a big factor in their pain levels. “Stress may not cause fibromyalgia, but it can make it worse, explains
Roca, who also uses acupuncture and mind/body techniques such as
biofeedback and hypnosis to help a person recognize the impact of
thoughts on the physical body.
The single most important thing you can do to alleviate the pain of
fibromyalgia is to keep moving, just a little bit at a time, according to Roca.
Stretching in bed while lying down is a good place to start. Yoga and Tai
Chi are effective to relieve painful symptoms by keeping muscles strong and
supple. Moving in warm water is soothing and gentle because the buoyancy of the water supports the body.
Fibromyalgia most often affects women in their 30s to 50s. However, men
get it too and more young people seem to be feeling symptoms as well. For

A Modern Take on the Pygmalion Tale
Dear Money, the

novel, is a

do like a foulmouthed aria and tied up at the end in a crisp little flourish.”
Working twelve hour days, amassing personal wealth and possessions,
she is in her element in the high stakes world of trading.
“To feel the risk, the exhilaration, the intensity of the present moment,
the never-ending now. Risk created the dancing-on-the-cliff’s edge opportunity I was seeking.”
The book is pure fiction, but the idea came from a very real “proposition” that was presented to Martha McPhee several years ago. She
refused the offer, but was intrigued by the idea, so she decided to write a
novel about it. To write the book, she immersed herself in the world of
bond trading to create a riveting story that pulls us into a turbulent financial world in its heyday. India occasionally looks back, but the lure of
wealth is too compelling for her to consider turning back.
“In some ways,” says the author, “It’s a cautionary tale about the grass
being greener, but it’s also a commentary on our modern obsession of
‘keeping up with the Joneses,’ especially the Joneses who live in New York
City, send their children to exclusive private schools, attend gala fundraisers at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and summer in New England.”
In an interesting plot twist, at almost the same time that India has
become a bond trader, Will Chapman decides to leave his profitable Wall
Street job to fulfill his dream of becoming a novelist, so in many ways, the
two families trade places, and India’s obsession with money continues to
grow.
“It starts like this: you get a job, you want a better job; you get a car, you
want a better car; you get a house, you want a better house; you have a
child, you want another, then another. Crested Butte becomes Aspen
becomes Gstaad.”
Ms. McPhee ends the novel one year to the day before Lehman Brothers
went under and the collapse of the financial market began its downward
spiral. India Palmer is in Maine, having bought the Chapmans’ charming
cottage on Pond Point. She is deciding whether or not to
tear it down in order to build a more ostentatious house. “I
wanted the book to end with India on a precipice, “says Ms.
McPhee. “At this point, she is fully leveraged and channeling Scarlett O’Hara’s ‘Tomorrow is another day.’ India is a
metaphor for the state of the financial market at that point
in time.”
Martha McPhee is the daughter of the prolific Pulitzer
Prize-winning writer John McPhee, and is a tenured professor of English at Hofstra University. “Being a writer is unstable,” she explains. “There are constant ups and downs,
acceptances and rejections. It’s a bi-polar existence. There is
lots of excitement when something is published, and then
a lull between publications. Being a professor is the even
keel.” She still loves to cook and shares some favorite
recipes on her website, marthamcphee.com. ◆

Dear Money
by Martha McPhee
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt; 2010; $25
When she was just ten years old, Martha McPhee loved to
cook elaborate dishes for her large extended family—parents,
stepparents, siblings, and stepsiblings. When she cooked
Chicken Kiev, she enjoyed observing the butter spurt out as
family members took their first bite. As an adult, Ms. McPhee
is equally observant, which is one reason why her novel, Dear Money, is
so vivid and engrossing.
Dear Money, the author’s fourth novel, is a Pygmalion tale for the 21st
century. Instead of taking place in ancient Greece or Edwardian England,
the novel takes place in the early years of the new century, on a frenzied
Wall Street deep in the throes of the subprime mortgage market. The story
begins in Maine in the summer of 2003 and Martha McPhee’s exquisite
description lures us in immediately.
“Maine. Pond Point, the old Victorian cottage tied together, it seemed,
with twine, standing as it does before the
dunes with a swath of sea grass like a moat,
sweet pea shoots, their blue flowers dancing
in a late-afternoon breeze blowing offshore.”
Novelist India Palmer, her sculptor husband
Theodor and their two young daughters are
staying at a friends’ seaside cottage. Emma
and Will Chapman are dear friends and generous hosts, but India feels a just-under-thesurface envy whenever she spends time with
them. The Chapmans seem to have it all—a
luxurious apartment in Manhattan, a seaside
cottage in Maine, and an ease about money that only those who have
enough of it can emit. Though they struggle to send their
daughters to the same private school as the Chapman girls,
India and Theodor live in a crowded rent-stabilized apartment and juggle unpaid bills like so many balls in the air.
Then India meets Win Johns, a charming Wall Street executive and a friend of the Chapmans, and she is immediately mesmerized. Win makes her an offer that will turn her
current financial situation on its ear. On a Pygmalion-type
bet that Win makes with the CEO of his Wall Street firm,
India is lured into the frenzied world of bond trading.
Almost immediately, her middling novel-writing career
comes to a complete halt. She is good at her new job; she
instinctively understands the nuances, the personalities,
and most of all, how to play the game—including becoming one of the boys by eating twenty-one hamburgers in an
eating contest, her “extended belch … rising in a crescen-

LONG ISLAND WOMAN • April 2011 • 17
an interview with
Deidre
Hall
by Iris Wiener
t’s near impossible to mention the name Dr.
Marlena Evans and not have a woman recognize
her as the iconic Days of Our Lives protagonist.
Deidre Hall brought Marlena to life in a way that
has yet to be rivaled on daytime television, thus
becoming a role model for women everywhere
for over thirty years. In 1976, the now activist
and author, created the pioneering role of the
loving, working mother on Days of Our Lives, and
in 1986 became the first performer ever to simultaneously
appear on daytime and primetime television when she began
sharing her smile and maternal instinct as Jesse
Witherspoon on Our House. She left daytime tv the following year to focus on a career in television movies and stage
roles, but returned to Days of Our Lives to the delight of millions of fans in 1991, where she and Drake Hogestyn (as
John Black) became one of television’s most beloved couples.
Throughout the next nineteen years in Hall’s work with
Days of Our Lives, her career and personal life saw many
changes. Hall had two sons, David and Sully, via a surrogate
mother. In 1993, Hall created Never Say Never- The Deidre
Hall Story (amongst many other television projects), an ABC
Family film about her struggle to start a family, and her reasons for finally choosing
to have a surrogate help her. An identical twin, Deidre also introduced her sister,
Andrea Hall, to her Days of Our Lives family during both of her runs in the show.
Andrea supported Deidre in December when the close pair visited New York, allowing
Deidre to participate in a Days of our Lives 45 Years: A Celebration in Photos book signing event. Deidre also brought along copies of her cookbook, Deidre Hall’s Kitchen
Closeup. Now single and living in Los Angeles with her boys, the 63 year old enjoys
campaigning for causes close to her heart and creating books to help women improve
their lives. Hall spoke with LONG ISLAND WOMAN before heading out to chat with hundreds of fans who had lined up to see her at for a Barnes & Noble book signing.
I
How do you think portraying Marlena has changed the way people perceive women
in soap operas?
I think that Marlena was topical and timely. When I joined the show I was a woman
beginning her career and trying to establish herself and a medical practice. A lot of
women my age were doing just that, trying to get themselves into business. The next
stage of Marlena’s life was getting married and balancing marriage and family and a
career, and women of that age were doing the same thing. Then she had a number of
tragedies and left her husband, and everybody’s been through those stages, so she
was today’s woman for about thirty years. I think people look at that and say, “Well,
she’s going through it also, that must be what’s happening.” I think that’s why she
lasted so long. People just related to her life schedule. She was strong, but she wasn’t perfect.
What was the most challenging aspect of playing Marlena?
I found that I was careful how I responded to things. Marlena had to be someone
you always felt safe with. You always trusted her and you always knew no matter
what happened she’d be there. She’d be on your side and she’d be your champion,
even to the extremes. She didn’t see any of the evil of Sammy. That was some girl! I
got mail saying, “Can’t you see what a rat she is?” and “How come Marlena is still so
accepting?” It’s because that’s what we all want. We all want someone to accept us
even in our bad moments. It was not always easy!
What was the most rewarding aspect of playing Marlena?
The women that watched the show and followed her were like her. They were devoted, intelligent, sophisticated, gainfully employed, hard-working, and they had integrity. That became my fan base. When I went out in the marketplace, that’s who was
coming toward me. I didn’t play Erica Kane. I didn’t have to worry about somebody
throwing a pie in my face or hating me or resenting me. The worst thing that ever
happened to me were arms flung wide for hugs, and that’s not so bad.
When you first looked through Days of our Lives 45 Years: A Celebration in Photos,
memories from your time with the show must have come flooding back to you. Which
were your favorites?
The funny thing about the Days book was that they’re not distant memories. Seeing
the Horton living room, we revisited that so many hundreds of times. That room never
changed. Seeing the set layout, seeing the blueprints, it’s like being in your childhood
home. There really were very few moments that took me by surprise.
You have been in so many television films, but the most personal one was Never Say
Never – The Deidre Hall Story. Describe the feedback you got about making a movie
having to do with the topic of surrogacy.
My ex and I wrote it. There was so much confusion about surrogacy and so much
misinformation and sort of a perverse curiosity. “Did he have to sleep with her?” It was
not a knowledgeable arena. The satisfying part was reminding women there’s somebody else out there that’s going to give you the greatest gift of your life, and the joy
she gets is seeing you have your family. There was no confusion. There was no fighting about it. The babies were created for me. Robin and I are still very close. My boys
think of her children as their half brothers and sisters. I’m really proud of women. I
love the part of us that can chip in, help each other, be so empathic that we give of
our flesh to help each other out. We lose track of that in the day to day part of our
lives. I think that when women stand together there’s nothing we can’t do.
Were there any challenges in playing yourself in front of the camera?
There were so many people in the film that were a part of my real life, so there was
was it. I got to work one summer in a shop with a woman who was a hairdresser and
rinse permanent rods, and oh my gosh, I loved it. Then I was studying to be a therapist, and came to L.A. one summer and was making some extra money modeling while
still taking college classes. I was still modeling to support myself, but kept missing
classes. Then I was acting and kept missing more classes. I woke up one day and
thought, “Oh, wait, I do have a career. I just need to get out of school and go do it.”
So I switched to an acting major, which became twelve years of classes.
Was it challenging to be on Our House while still working on Days of Our Lives? When
did you sleep?
It wasn’t challenging. In daytime television you’re so good at what you do. I would
come and do Days of Our Lives on the weekend, and I would have up to one hundred
pages of dialogue per day. I would look at it, memorize it, go do it. And then I would
be on Our House five days a week. There wasn’t a lot of time to do laundry and the
functional part of living, but as far as shooting two shows, I loved them both, it wasn’t work! I didn’t sleep much, but I was a lot younger then too!
Were you and your twin sister Andrea more competitive than your average siblings
because you were both acting?
Her voyage into acting was not planned. She’s an extraordinary Special Education
teacher. At one point, Ann Marcus who was writing our show, took a meeting with
several of the actors that were leads and said, “What would you like to do for a story
line?” I said, “Oh, I would like to work with my sister.” “Why would that be?” I said, “I
don’t know, we’re twins.” Oh gosh! “YOU HAVE A TWIN?” They had her on a plane the
next week, screen tested, and bought her out of her contract. It was when the evil
Samantha was born. But she had no ambition to act, it was not in her plan. And then
she came back as Hattie Adams, which was screamingly good fun. We were raised as
individuals, so we really had a solid sense of ourselves and what our interests and
passions were. We’re so much alike in terms of our belief systems, our integrity, and
our core values. There just isn’t a problem.
Do you think that being a soap opera star got in the way of any other acting opportunities?
Clearly it does. You make a choice when you sign a contract. It’s a no-outs contract,
you can’t do anything else. Even if you could, there’s no time. Given the schedule that
you have, they write story lines weeks ahead, scripts days
ahead, and to ask for a lengthy time off to do a film or to do a
miniseries, it would be debilitating for the soap opera.
What is the most memorable comment a fan has made to you
about the show when they saw you?
I did a book signing in Miami, and an eight year old boy came
up and said, “Sammy is so out of control, you’ve got to spank
her!” And I said, “What is she doing?” “She shot E.J.!” “She shot
E.J.!? Why?” “Because he was going to take her babies away
from her!” I said, “Is he okay? Where did she shoot him?” “In the ear.” I said, “Didn’t
mama teach her better shooting than that?” It was a hilarious, sweet little kind of
ongoing dialogue. He was adorable.
How did you discover all of the secrets that are in your cookbook?
It’s information that my friend and co-author Lynn Bowman and I happen to have.
There are no great mysteries unraveled in the book, it’s just good common sense. It’s
a book I always wanted. I always wanted to be able to answer the question, “Oh golly,
the nightmare, the question: What’s for supper? Oh my gosh!” We tend to fall back
on the best five dishes that we make, that we’re sick of and our families are sick of.
This book was designed to be used for quick meals – simple, basic, raw, healthy ingredients, and delicious food. Everything in the book is easy to make. There’s a portion in
it that is a shopping list – things you want to have in your refrigerator and in your
pantry so when you can’t stop after a PTA meeting, and you can’t stop after a long
day at work, you go, “Okay, I know what to do…and it’s still fresh and terrific.”
What is your favorite thing to cook?
I’m really proud of women. I love the part of us
that can chip in, help each other, be so empathic
that we give of our flesh to help each other out.
a great sense of camaraderie in playing those moments. There was a moment in a
monologue that I had written that takes place outside the doctor’s office where
[Robin] decided not to be our surrogate, and I tell her what it’s like to not have your
family. During that scene, David, who was just about 2 1/2 years old, was standing
beside me. We were shooting in a close-up. We were standing against the wall, and I
said, “Mommy and Robin are talking, you cannot talk, okay?” And he never spoke. It
was such a full moment to be talking about his birth for millions of people to see
while he’s leaning against my thigh. Very dear.
Do your sons want to follow in your footsteps by getting into the entertainment business?
No. David (18) has a knack for it and would be good at it. Plus, he’s drop dead gorgeous. Tully (16) is more cerebral, off-the-charts bright and sensitive. They’re both
amazing children.
Did you always know that you were going to be a performer?
No. I wanted to be a hairdresser since the time I was a kid. I did get to do it, and that

Catching Up with Carol
by Carol Silva
A Little Off Target
I’m going to be married 20 years come
September. Pretty remarkable. Not because I don’t
believe in marriage. I very much do. In fact my husband and I have been teaching PreCana (marriage
preparation taught by married couples to engaged
couples getting married in the Catholic Church) for
two decades.
I just can’t believe we finally got in the same place
long enough. I met him when I was 17. We worked
in the same department store; even used to double date with my boyfriend
and his girlfriend. We went our separate ways – I guess to grow up. Then
in the late 1980s, he was working at WNBC-TV when there was a strike. To
fill his time, he came to work at News 12 – such a great old friend, I set him
up on dates with my friends!
It took a few years for our “friendship” to become something more. But
the earliest stage of “something more” was tricky–the part when you’re not
sure if you’re dating. One day we agreed to meet for lunch. He told me he
was working on his sailboat so we should
meet outside Cocco’s Restaurant on the
water in Huntington. I picked the perfect
outfit: nautical blue striped shirt, a white
cable sweater around my shoulders,
adorable cuffed white shorts. Yes, I
remember. He showed up in a pair of old
blue gym shorts, white t-shirt, a bandana
around his head. He looked like Papa
Smurf! He was covered in blue dust from
sanding the bottom of his boat. I’m not
sure who was more embarrassed when he said, “Oh, the boat is in the
boatyard around the corner, but I never thought you’d find it.” Off we went
to the deli for sandwiches so I could perch on a ladder in the boatyard. Nice.
But I got even. Didn’t mean to. I was working the 4am shift at News 12
while he worked the 2-11pm shift at NBC. I told him to meet me around
1-PM (his breakfast) in a Northern Blvd., Manhasset restaurant. Perfect little salad shop, light meals. Except I gave him the name of a restaurant several doors away. We both walked into heavy duty Italian port wines, thick
velvet curtains. I was too embarrassed to suggest, “Wanna move down the
block?” Although he could have had that pasta dish they make with eggs.
Then there was the time he and Lea Tyrrell’s husband dropped us off in the
middle of Little Italy and went to park. About 45 minutes later the guys
showed up – realizing we had walked into the other Italian restaurant on
the block with the big windows and brass trim.
So where do we go for our 20th? Even if we stay home, I’m afraid he’ll
show up at the kitchen table, while I’m all decked out, waiting in the dining room! ◆

Food Stories from Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Long Island
Fifty years ago the Peace Corps was established. Since then, answering
the call of President John F. Kennedy to serve the cause of peace by living
and working in developing countries – “ask not what your country can do
for you; ask what you can do for your country” – more than 200,000
Americans have worked as Peace Corps volunteers in 139 host countries.
The Peace Corps has been an amazing opportunity for Americans, mostly in their 20s, to see the world and be immersed in another culture while
trying to do something useful. In 1965, just out of college, my husband of
less than a year and I traveled to Kenya to work with farmers cooperatives.
A bonus of the Peace Corps experience for us, and most other volunteers, was the opportunity to eat new foods. The tribe we were living
with, the Kisii, enjoyed

Some of the best coffee in the world is from Panama so I’m a bit jealous
of Karen Donneson of Westhampton. When she was a volunteer in
Panama, working in sustainable agriculture, Karen lived in a mountainous
coffee-growing area and had fresh roasted coffee every day. I, too, lived in
a coffee growing country but at that time all the best coffee was shipped
out and I had to travel to Nairobi, 250 miles to the east, to get the good
stuff. Says Karen, “It was interesting to see how the entire coffee processing went, from harvesting to roasting over an open fire pit to hand grinding it. I loved drinking it. Many Panamanians in my village drank their coffee with sugar. I liked it black - like espresso. I drank a lot of it.”

Indian food. Asians had
come to Kenya with the
building of the Uganda railroad and stayed. We had Sikh and Goan friends
who introduced us to their food. For the first time, I had real curries made
with freshly ground spices and homemade yoghurt.
Moving to Westbury upon returning we had trouble finding Indian food.
Forty years ago there was only one Indian restaurant on the Island. Today,
the choices are many—Hicksville alone is a gold mine of Indian restaurants
and food shops.
I wondered about the culinary experiences of others and so asked some
of the members of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Long Island for

Karen says that rice was a staple in her village and people ate it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Here in the U.S. she frequently cooks rice and
beans. “I tried to make patacones, fried plantains, but they don't come
out the same,” she says.
Rice was a staple for Danielle Jacobs-Erwin of Mattituuck while working
in HIV/AIDS prevention in Madagascar. “Malagasy eat rice three times a
day with ro, a little meat or vegetables on top.” Her favorite dish was ravitoto made of ground cassava leaves and pieces of meat, combined with
coconut milk.

Food Stories from the Peace Corps
Sarah Lansdale, the director of Sustainable Long Island, learned to love
black beans while serving as an agricultural extension agent in the highlands of Guatemala. “I ate them straight up in a bowl with cream and
fresh cheese with tortillas, or with a soupy masa (corn meal) or in chuchitos (with chicken and corn meal - like empanadas).” These days she has
a pot of black beans cooking on her stove at least once a week.
Guatemalan friends were fans of the fast food chain Pollo Campero and
she ate there whenever she visited the capital city, a five-hour bus drive
from her village. Pollo Campero now has two restaurants on Long Island,
in Hempstead and Brentwood.
Carol Siller, of Amityville, worked as an ESL teacher in Turkey in Rize, a
province on the Black Sea. “Turkish food is wonderful, as are the Turkish
people,” says Carol. “Don't tell the Greeks or the Turks, but their food is
VERY similar!”
Carol recalls a wonderful Christmas feast that she and fellow Peace
Corps volunterrs celebrated in Turkey. “We enlisted the help of our students and many of the Rize residents, especially the merchants. Our students saved candy wrappers and made tree ornaments. The butcher went
to a nearby village to get us a turkey, which everyone called the
‘Americali’ and the local baker used his ovens to roast us a leg of lamb.

The entire town got into the spirit. We invited all the Peace Corps volunteers serving in the area to a big Christmas party. Volunteers came from
as far away as Afghanistan–those Volunteers already considered Turkey a
vacation spot. We had about 40 guests, almost all of whom we had never
met. The townspeople welcomed everyone and were eager to show off
the Christmas spectacle their American girls had created. Now that was a
Christmas to remember. I even made my family's fresh coconut cake.
Word spread throughout the Peace Corps world and we actually received
a letter of commendation from Sargent Shriver. Now that is the Spirit of
Christmas, lovingly celebrated with our Muslim friends.”
Doro wat was the favorite food of Mary Myers-Bruckenstein of Coram
while she was working as a nurse and a nurse educator in Ethiopia. Doro
wat is often referred to as Ethiopia’s national dish. It is a very spicy blend
of chicken and many spices, most particularly berbere, which contains
fenugreek, cayenne pepper, cumin, cardamom, allspice, to name a few. It
is served with injera, a sourdough type of soft flatbread that is used in lieu
of utensils. Says Mary, “This is yummy! You eat it with your hands. Injerra
has a sour taste that balances the hot spices.”
These days Mary makes the labor-intensive doro wat and injerra for parties.
So let’s celebrate Kennedy’s dream the food of the world! ◆
YES! you’re right.
