Haven't seen any official word yet. There are several piles along my block between parked cars that are a good 3' high so I'm guessing it could be another week...

Mostly agree but it's a matter of timing and perspective. Those of us who bought and moved here 30 years ago were in a rough town and we welcomed other newcomers and we worked together to help improve the neighborhood and the schools and responsible government. Some of us stayed, some left for the suburbs or beyond.

So how long you been in JC, Harry? I'd bet less than 10 years. For a Newbie on this Forum, I thought your comment was obnoxious.

My ancestors arrived on The Mayflower in 1620, so I'm 12th-generation here . The Native American Indians might be the only ones who could legitimately say that we "came and ruined it".

It's not that hard but it can take awhile if you have to trim a bunch of that very hard wood to fit into the head. I've done it with both a very sharp sheath knife and with a mini grinder. Look it up as a DIY project and take it on as a challenge.

I'll save you the googling:

also your subject says "woman filed as HE undressed"... but the person filmed was a female human who identified as a woman so it seems you misunderstand basic use of pronouns too.





Don't forget that she also transmogrified this into a point about priests (including gay priests) molesting children. Crazy-

A Jersey City police officer has been suspended without pay following his arrest on a drug charge in Bayonne last week.

Anthony Newell, an 11-year veteran of the police force, was arrested on March 1 at East Fourth Street and Lord Avenue along with 30-year-old Eileen Conway, of Jersey City, according to Bayonne police.

http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/20 ... ed_after_drug_arrest.html

strange that he wasn't fired?


Wondered why as well. Innocent until proven guilty? Union rules? Dunno. But he makes over $100k a year so now he's contemplating his future at home while we pay him over $8k/month.

It's the industry standard in today's market. Like any sport or hobby you have junk, cheap, affordable, and high end. You wouldn't know it unless you were in the game.


Exactly. But my question is why would anyone in the game, who can presumably appreciate a high-end machine, leave it in an inadequately-locked bike room?


People leave 50K machines on the road routinely when they park their cars. At some point, you just hope and trust that humanity will not let you down. I dont know if the bike rooms in question were inadequately locked, but I am assuming each the rooms was locked and that the criminal simply broke / circumvented those locks. Either way, the victim is not at fault. Owning an expensive bike does not make you deserving of being the victim of theft or burglary.


Bod, I did NOT mean to imply in any way that the victim was "at fault". But let's face it, a bike can disappear into the back of a truck and be gone forever whereas a car (possibly with LoJack or at least alarmed) is a tougher steal and is either on the road or headed to a chop shop. I ride some nice bikes as well as old mopeds and I lock the heck out of them. The bicycles come inside when I'm home.

Jolly - what are the routes helicopters are supposed to use when going from Kearny to the NYC helipads? My understanding is they are supposed to go over 139 and 14th Street/Holland Tunnel which is why that Target and Acme get a ton of low flying overheads.

Yet down in the Van Vorst area we get double digits flights overhead daily. Some are higher than others. The number of flights has gotten steadily worse over the past decade.

Would be nice if the industry made a bigger push for quieter equipment...



I'm also in VVP area and I agree with the increase in traffic. Been here for decades. As a former fixed-wing pilot I know it's pretty difficult to gauge altitude from the air or the ground but my call would be circa 500' with the occasional lower ones. And they are loud...

Kearny probably isn't the source/destination of these flights. My bet is they're mostly from Linden Airport (farther South). I fly in/out of Linden a few times a year and there are a whole bunch of news and tourist copters based there. VVP is pretty much in a straight line from there to NYC. Watch them flying and you'll see they're mostly heading SW or NE.

The 1000 foot rule doesn't apply to helicopters. But, it is not the wild west. There are prescribed routes in and out of the NYC area. Unless over the Hudson below certain altitudes (varies by location), helicopters will be in touch with ATC (approach control or local towers), in radar contact with a discrete transponder code. If they are breaking rules it will be known. As far as the 2-3 feet above a building, if that is to mean actually above the building itself, not offset, that is crazy hard to do at speed. People ALWAYS greatly underestimate the height of helicopters. If you think you can judge the height from just looking you are wrong.

Anon, We believe you, and you've tried a few things that didn't work. Have you considered changing your DNS Server settings, either on the router or on a hard-wired PC? This link will get you started.

I have FiOS 50/50 service Downtown and it's consistently 59 Down and 65 Up. But that's in a 1-family house with a whole bunch of hard-wired computers connected (for my business). The other thing that comes to mind is whether your building uses an Ethernet Hub or a proper Switch -- makes a big difference...

I agree with Brewster as well. But as for the law (and I would NEVER run my 1-family house at these temps), this was from the NJ Housing Code:

Utility requirements
From October 1 to May 1, the rental
premises shall be maintained at
a temperature of at least 68
degrees Fahrenheit between the hours of 6:00 a.
m. and 11:00 p.m.; between the hours of 11:00
p.m. and 6:00 a.m. the rental premises shall be

Fahrenheit. The hot water temperature should be
maintained at a minimum of 120 degrees and a
maximum of a 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

The same can be said for you, "Why not give it a rest?" Aren't we talking about a child, not politics. I think a gay star who went through something similar has more to say on the subject than you or me. It is absolutely evil to place any child on hormones, something that must be done because in approximately five years, this "boy" will have a body of a woman.


SIGH.

Since you are intellectually challenged, I will try to explain the difference between our posts: you are posting more and more, trying to convince others about your viewpoint, while I have done none of that and simply pointed out to you that your posts are being ignored. I have no reason to "give it a rest" because I have done nothing to try and convince all others of my viewpoint, which I have neither shared, nor tried to impose it on others. For all you know, I could be in agreement with you.


The fact that she's posted something like 42 times out of 143 total posts on this thread alone says it all. Instead of "giving it a rest", I'm guessing most of just wish she'd go away. Incredibly tiresome....

I left the lath up partly for this reason. I've heard about paying off the workers, but I'd rather not encourage any more corruption in JC than we already have. Soon you'd need to be paying them just to take your regular garbage.


I hear you loud and clear. When I did that 25 years ago the only other option was a local guy with a pickup truck who would just dump it at the end of a dead end street. At least this got the debris to a proper dump site...

Sheetrock over lath can be a challenge if your lath is warped and your sheetrock panels are off at the edges. Doing it on the ceiling is a drag. Call in your buddies for beer and pizza and tell them to bring their screw guns! Heck, we've gone this deep, I'll even help!

It's only the plaster from an 11x11 ceiling and cutting a doorway, and thin crappy plaster at that, 1/4" in spots!! Not much volume, less than a yard IMO, but heavy as hell. In retrospect I should have just put the 5/8 rock over it. You can get your regular pickup to take small bundles of scrap lumber if you dribble them out, but they'll never take 40 lb bags of plaster.



So, $100/yard is cheaper than $200 minimum.

I used those things for a pretty big gut job about 15 years ago and found them to be a pain. Also paid about the same but don't recall the company name. The next time I used a private hauler with a truck but I'm pretty sure he retired.

I just noticed a medium-size truck down the block from me with the phone number "1-800-Got-Junk" painted on all sides. I've seen this company around here before. Might be worth seeing if they'll give you a quote-

I used him once about 2 years ago and I can confirm that's true-

I hired him to replace a 50 gallon tall-type water heater and I told him in advance that I wanted the same type. He arrived with a 40 gallon lowboy model in his truck and tried to convince me to accept it, which I refused. So then he drives back to southern Bayonne to get the one I wanted while I sat around waiting for him. What should have been a 45 minute job ended up taking more than 4 hours...

It is usually the owners actions that cause the dogs to attack to begin with. You abuse and neglect a dog you are increasing the likely hood it would attack someone one day. If you treated a child the same way some of these dogs were treated before they attacked, you would have a similar outcome. Some people just shouldn't own pets or raise kids. The dog breed isn't the problem though the owner is.
