I know you said JC, BUT... Basic Health Food store on Washington Street in Hoboken has bulk almonds in the back.

Curious, has your son had a reaction to peanut oil in the past? I think you'd be surprised how many people use it to deep fry. I know for sure Chik-Fil-A does for sure.

It should be fine if it's processed to remove all the protein, but I can certainly understand that you'd want to avoid any risk.


No, he hasn't. I am glad I know this now about fried chicken (not that we eat it that much) but I always thought corn or vegetable oil. We avoid chinese food for him because of peanut oil and generally don't go out to eat all that much... The only time he's actually eaten peanut butter was when I ordered hummus for him from Cafe Nia and they put peanut butter in it instead of tahini.. I had no idea until I tasted it myself. I immediately walked him over to the JCMC where he began to have a reaction in the ER. I did follow up with Cafe Nia and ask them to indicate on their menu that the hummus has peanut butter. The manager told me they did but I haven't been back to check. (This was about 2 years ago).

I think it's just good practice for restaurants to indicate which items contain peanut because of the severity of the reactions and how common this allergy has become.

Hey Wayne,

Do you really use peanut oil to fry your chicken? If so, do you indicate this on your menu? If not, I think it would be a good idea. I would never think that fried chicken was fried with peanut oil and my son is allergic to peanuts. Would you please consider indicating this on your menu if you don't already along with the other items that contain peanut?

Thanks so much.

Re: Jersey City switching to flashing traffic lights to cut pollution, speed traffic
#96
Home away from home
Home away from home


I really think this is an awful idea. Awful. I've seen people blow right through flashing red lights without even slowing down. And it is so hard to see on some of these streets, like Summit or Webster because of cars parked all the way to the corners... especially at night. You are going to have to nose all of the way out just to see if it's safe to go. I am really so worried about this. It is true. A lot of people don't know the rules about flashing lights and I believe this is really going to lead to some terrible accidents.

It annoys me too but I think the reason they don't pull into the bus stops is because the cars won't give them a break to pull back out into traffic again and the reason cars won't give them a break is because they don't want to be driving behind a bus, myself included.


I know! I do see this and I see a lot of drivers don't understand that you are supposed to yield to buses.

The worst to me though, is when you pull over for an ambulance and then the cars coming up behind you act like it is an opportunity to pass and won't let you back in... this has only happened to me on Palisades Avenue. It's kind of one of the craziest places to drive.

BTW, the Mercedes didn't have airbags? Must be a "classic" then.


That's what I thought at first too, but it says the bus pulled out of Ferry and made a left going north on Palisades which means it must have had the green light and essentially the mercedes ran a red.

I agree about the buses though. They don't pull over to the curb and it really pisses me off.

Maybe you should really listen to what people are saying about the name of your survey. If you REALLY want PATH's management to listen I don't think sending them results from a survey called PATHSUX is going to get their attention.

If I was acting like a jerkoff and my friends did a survey called KITTENSUX and sent it to me, I don't even think I would read it past the title. Now, if they sent me something that said THE KITTEN SURVEY I would actually read it and maybe take to heart what they were getting at.

Celebrity Softball game in Lincoln Park

Matt Pinfield just announced on 101.9 that there will be a celebrity softball fundraiser game in Lincoln Park to raise money for the family of Marc Dinardo, tomorrow night at 6pm in Baseball Field West. (I was listening in the car so I apologize if this isn't 100% accurate)

I did a quick search for information online and did not find anything. If anyone has more information, please post here.

Also, I called 911 a few months ago because I saw a guy in an orange PSE&G shirt going down peoples driveways the "check the meter" on Ogden Avenue. Looked like a legit service guy, but he was acting kinda strange.

He'd get to the house and try windows and look through garage doors. He got to the end of the Avenue and put a grey sweatshirt over the PSE&G shirt. The undercover cops were on the way and they busted him on Palasade Avenue.

They let him go because he said he was "looking for an apartment". What a load of rubbish - he was clearly casing out property! (At least the JCPD took his information down).


I used to stay home with my son when we lived downtown and I would let the PSE&G guy in once a month to check the meter. It did make me feel a little vulnerable until they gave me a calendar telling me when they would be coming, that way, I knew that it was a real PSE&G guy. I recommend anyone who is home and let's in the meter reader to have the calendar so you can be sure he's legit.

I LOVE telling people I'm from Jersey. I get a lot of "Where you from? You from Russia? Poland?" and I always reply with a huge smile... "NO. New Jersey."

New Jersey really is a great state. If you look at the number of successful companies and talented people here... our great location between NY and Philly... The diversity of our residents, our history of invention and innovation... our universities. AND currently we are one of the leading states to develop clean energy technology. So much to be proud of.

Re: For Graffiti Artists in Jersey City -- Texting Replaces Tagging
Home away from home

fwiw.. I actually like the text graffiti. I like when there is a meaningful message in such a concise phrase. I like being reminded to pay attention to what is bigger, what is beyond my job and home life, the grind. I like that it appears in front of you sometimes so unexpectedly and makes you think. But, what I don't like is touching or vandalizing what is not mine. So, I can't ever fully support the graffiti thing. But then again, it's the unexpectedness and location that can make it awesome (for me)... oh... the conundrum.

In that location what you might get a lot of is students during the day... this may be good for business (think egg and cheese on a roll in the morning, candy, soda, chips, etc.) or it might drive you nuts (think packs of kids being loud, litter, loitering, etc). It depends on your patience level.

You may also get business from people visiting the hospital... fresh flowers might be a good idea for that reason. Not sure.

Not sure about the pre-made sandwiches and stuff... they tend to get soggy. Muffins and coffee might be good. Maybe an actual sandwich counter... People always need to run out for toilet paper or a pack of advil, things like that.

Re: An Open Letter to You, My PATH Nemesis
Home away from home
Home away from home


During my pregnancy I actually never wanted a seat on the train... not until the very end at least. During my initial months, I was so nauseous that the slightest whiff of B.O., morning breath, or cigarette smoke made me want to barf. I didn't want to be close to other people at all. One time this well-meaning middle-aged man insisted I take his seat... I just grinned and beared it.

For me though, It makes me feel good to be nice to someone else and give them my seat. Whether they be old, preggers, injured, with a child... what have you. I sometimes feel that I'm the one who gets the benefit. "Yes, I am young! I am healthy! and I am being thoughtful!... go me!"

OH no. oh no. Do not even go there.

The only reason men don't get maternity leave is because they do not give birth and cannot breast feed. And you know what? The 6 weeks we women do get IS NOT ENOUGH. In Sweden both parents get leave... I think women get a year and men get 6 months (don't quote me... it's something like that).

In our country, it's about $$$$ so women are forced back to work way too soon. Babies are left with strangers. It sucks.

Recovering from child birth takes time. Taking care of a newborn is exhausting. Don't ever think maternity leave is some sort gift women get... it is barely adequate. And yes, having a child is a choice and well worth it, but it is not easy.

I WISH my husband was allowed paternity leave... but only to help me out!

Well, quite frankly I have no idea why (or how) women wear ridiculous high heels. Especially when walking or train riding is included in their day. Nobody notices your shoes except other women!!!!


Yes, other women notice the shoes themselves, but men notice the way they make you walk.

One time I had just gotten my haircut in the city and then jumped on the subway to go downtown. This totally cute young man, maybe 19 or 20 got up from his seat and asked me to sit down... like a gentleman. He did not want to have sex me... he just thought I should sit because I am a female. He clearly was visiting from the South or some other part of our country. So here I was, a tired, over-worked, new mom with a fresh hairdo and a seat on the subway given to me from a cutie... wow. It just made my day.


It's nice to be treated like a lady. Eventhough it only happens once in a blue moon. I am glad I didn't say, "oh, no thanks" and instead I graciously accepted.

The story of the shooting in Pittsburgh coupled with this story today on top of all of the political crooks who just got busted bring me one step closer to building a log cabin in the woods... far far away. Maybe I should just log off the internets and stop reading about this stuff... is ignorance bliss?
