I also heard good things about Costco fish and seafood quality. Do you guys concur? If so I'd be very happy.

We go to the one in Clark, and we hit it for about $200 every couple of weeks. We have an Executive membership, so the rewards check we get at the end of the year pays for the membership.

Membership is worth it for organic milk, meats, cheeses, paper goods, snacks like almonds and protein bars, a lot of produce like bagged salads, tomatoes, cucumbers and berries, yogurt, seafood.

It makes feeding a family of five (us, our kid, and my in-laws) very reasonable.


Thx

Exactly. How much do you have to buy/week at Costco to make it worth the membership fee?

I am disappointed it was not Ms Bustle who was dressed as a part of the female anatomy.

I guess she does it every night so this time she let someone else run with it.

What? How so?? The distance to the JCMC ER via a theoretical LSP vehicular bridge is the same distance, or longer, from ANY point in BeLa.

And, the Communipaw (or , Johnston) to Pacific to Grand to JCMC route is all right turns, while any route via LSP would include two rail crossings in addition to multiple extra traffic lights and some left turns.


My bad, I thought BeLa extends east of Pacific Ave, where all the development is happening around the Light Rail station. I looked at the map and it seems this area (between Pacific and Turnpike) is not BeLa. Still, whatever the name, very soon this area will be densely developed.

So I click on this thread looking for a brunch place, thinking that Holi Hai is some kind of a new restaurant at Exchange Place.

Instead I find user BeatrixKiddo as usual calling people names, this time over effin talcum powder.

I think I lost my appetite.

Yes, we got our fill of the cruises. We may actually go the fourth time, but stay on Isabela, chill and maybe do some day trips (or not). Isabela feels like it is at the end of the world.

At considerable risk of being off-topic (but heck, I am the thread-starter so I am allowed;), it was our third Galapagos trip - twice via Quito and once via Guayaquil. Quito's historic center is on UNESCO's Heritage of Humanity list - def worth seeing unless one really is altitude-sensitive.

I spent two nights in Guayaquil on my way to Galapagos last year. I did not know that Guayaquil is where atun encebollado originated or else I would def order it. I enjoyed Guayaquil - a nice blue-collar town that does its best to charm tourists and locals alike with its Malecon. Tough to compete with Quito, but Mr and Ms stillinjc had a good time there.

Those "Great Old Homes" around me have been run down shit-boxes with no redeeming architectural value.

Granted.. the Bayonne Boxes replacing them aren't much better to look at.


Exactly. So protect the homes of truly historical value and ban bayonne boxes. All fine. But a blanket demolition ban is ridiculous.

Properties in DT JC are not average Hudson County properties.

Generally correct though word is that if you get the flu it'll be less awful if you're immunized.


That is what worried me about dmark526's post. His brother got the shot, his flu was supposed to run a somewhat milder course, and the guy still wound up in a hospital.

Damn.

Unreal for whom? Do you belong to Liberty National? I'd be surprised if anyone posting on here does. Why should the park, its constituents, and wildlife subsidize private profit and overreach? Firestone has built a beautiful course and reaped very generous tax benefits in the process - the status quo is working just fine.

I'd love to hear him and Nevins McCann make the case for what tournaments they have lost out on because of the "inferior view" - if any - and where they were held instead. Peddling bullshit has no barriers to entry. Those who are willing to buy bullshit get what they deserve.


That is why I say he should pay $25 million on top of the current offer. I am wondering if people would be willing to listen then.
