Re: John's Pizza
Home away from home
Home away from home


We went there tonight - the hostess said they opened last night. We had the fried calamari and a plain pizza, both of which I really enjoyed. The pizza had really nice, thin crust, which is tough to find. The service was pretty good, especially since it's only their second night. The interior was nice, not too different from Pronto Cena. I got the impression that its a family friendly place, as there were a fair number of kids. The menu seemed to be pretty traditional Italian food, with reasonable prices. Definitely will give La Rustique a run for their money...

Uh, didn't you start this back and forth this with your first comment, which implied that reading is a waste of time?
Can we keep this thread to book recommendations please?

AG -

The World Without Us came out I think within the last year. It's very good, as I said. He's a really beautiful writer, particularly in the beginning when he's talking about the forest primeval. I'd be interested to hear what other people think of it - although I enjoyed it, there were some things that were dissatisfying.

The History Channel did a show called Life After People, (watched last night) which seemed like a bit of a rip off of the book, and suffered from gratuitous computer animation.

I just read The World Without Us, which was really interesting. I suggest skipping the chapters on plastic and nuclear waste, however, since those made me want to join up with those voluntary human extinction people.

Months ago I read Under the Net by Iris Murdoch, and I'm still telling people about it. It was the first book in years that once I finished it I wanted to read it over again immediately. Wonderful.

Re: Shipping a Framed Picture
Home away from home
Home away from home


Is it definitely glass, and not UV plexi? If yes, then $82 is actually reasonable, since just the shipping of something that size is pretty expensive. You're probably not going to be able to find a similarly sized box unless you buy in bulk from uline or something. If it is plexi, then you probably can get away with wrapping the whole thing in a few layers of bubble, and then sort of building a box around it using large sheets of double wall cardboard. I don't know how much money you'll save doing that, however. The alternative is getting it crated, which would cost you several hundred dollars.
In the future, I would definitely recommend getting things framed with UV plexi rather than glass. It's so much lighter, more durable, and cheaper to replace is anything does happen to it.

Re: Recycling old computer

Tekserve holds free computer/electronics recycling days a few times a year in Union Square, although that may be hard to get to with a desktop and monitor.
I think Best Buy may have an electronics recycling program, or possibly even Whole Foods...?

Home away from home


Wow, it's a good thing my cats can't read, because they would run away to your house! What a good cat mommy you are!! I'm sure it's fine for them to clean it off themselves, but who knows how long they'll track it around before they do...

Re: Local Veterinarian
Home away from home
Home away from home


I have been wondering the same thing about distemper/rabies. I have 2 indoor cats. They stay indoors all the time, so I think I'm going to skip the shots. I think it would probably be okay for you to skip the rabies shot, since that spreads through bites, but since you do take your cat outside I think you should probably get the distemper shot. Distemper spreads through contact with bodily fluids, so your cat could come in contact with it without you knowing. << How Panleukopenia (distemper) is Spread Panleukopenia is transmitted by all bodily secretions including feces, vomit, urine, saliva, and mucus. Contact with infected cats or food dishes, bedding, and kennels used by infected cats can spread the disease. People cannot catch it but can infect cats when their hands or clothing become contaminated. Fleas and other insects can also spread distemper. Outbreaks are common in animal shelters, kennels, and catteries. The virus can survive up to a year outside the host, and is resistant to most disinfectants and freezing. Households where distemper has been present should throw away all dishes, bedding, and kennel used by the infected cat and still should not introduce a new cat for at least one year. A ten minute treatment with bleach and water solution (1:32) will kill the virus. >> I would probably get both shots just to be safe. Regarding the teeth brushing, I don't really know how necessary it is. The biggest benefit of giving your cats dry food is that it cleans their teeth a bit. I think that's really the extent of what you need to do. I can't imagine cleaning a cat's teeth, yikes! Regarding ear mites, they are spread animal to animal. I don't know how long they survive off of the host animal - perhaps a cat, or a raccoon or something, passing through your yard shook some off and they made their way to your cat. I think you can use something like Revolution to prevent them, but I'm not sure. Best of luck!!

Campos also organized a free bus trip to Atlantic City for Hudson county seniors, and Zimmer handed out lottery tickets with campaign fliers.

Re: composting in JC
Home away from home
Home away from home


I have a small compost bin. I made it using these instructions:
http://www.yougrowgirl.com/garden/urbancomposting.php

I used the basic idea. I'm always adding to the compost and I mix it up every week or two. This is my first time doing it, so I guess I'll see how it turns out. Hopefully there will be some for the spring! One thing I have trouble with is finding enough 'browns' since I have no grass clippings or dead leaves. I have been adding a lot of shredded newspaper and cardboard. Spent potting soil also goes into the mix. I haven't had any trouble with pests, aside from small flies that get in there when I don't bury the greens deeply enough.
Also, the brunswick community garden composts. When I went to their open house, they said some people join just to compost there.

Re: Correct Recycling Preparation?
Home away from home
Home away from home


As I understand it, recycling can be in any kind of receptacle, but they prefer if bottles and cans are not in plastic bags. Maybe that's why they didn't take yours?
FYI, plastic bottle caps can't be recycled, so they go in the regular trash. Also things like yogurt containers often can't be recycled. Jersey City doesn't post what can and cannot be recycled, which is annoying. Anyway, that's what I know.

Re: Has anyone used any of these dentists?
Home away from home
Home away from home


I went to Dr. Hanna for the first time last week. She's wonderful. Very professional and understanding. (She didn't give me a hard time about my lack of dental visits). I definitely recommend her.
ALSO, for people without a good dental insurance plan, there are dental discount cards. I found mine on dentalplans.com. The plan costs about $100 for the year, and gives an average of 30% off most things. Cleanings and exams are free. I had two fillings, which would have totaled $350, but with the card it was only $199. (Dr. Hanna takes Northeast/Southeast) These are good even for people who do have insurance, since most dental insurance plans only pay what they consider to be a reasonable price, not the actual price of a procedure.

That's an interesting idea. I don't have any legal knowledge either, but I think a victim probably can bring a civil suit against his or her attacker. (I'm thinking back to OJ Simpson...the Brown family lost the criminal case but won the civil case)
Many people probably don't pursue it because of the cost, or because they want the experience to just be over.

What a terrible story.
Does anyone know if JC has provisions for the uninsured? Sliding scale at the hospital, etc? Not only will this woman have to carry the memory of this attack with her for the rest of her life, she will likely still be paying the medical bills too.

Re: Hamilton Park veterinarian reccomendations?
Home away from home
Home away from home


I use the Downtown Veterinary Assoc. on first street for my two cats, and I am very happy with them. My kitten has had a number of health problems, and Dr. Singh has been great. They are a little pricey at $60 per visit, but follow up visits are free of charge. They also accept the Friends of Animals certificate for reduced cost spay/neuter.
