Re: ISO Tile Installer

Home away from home


A backsplash is an incredibly-easy DIY job. Less than 6 square feet and it's nothing more than a bit of mastic and some grout. About as easy as buttering a piece of toast and it can't take more than an hour, tops-

About the only reason I could think of to hire someone for this is if you have fancy tile or edging that needs to be cut with a wet saw, which most people don't have.

I had the same reaction: this is truly nothing less than insurance fraud, and someone trying to game the system. Heck, I don't even know how he/she was able to get a 30-day temp permit with the car being registered in someone else's name, as the Parking Authority is usually super strict about matching the applicant's license, registration, and address.


His/her Mommy (the co-conspirator in the admitted insurance fraud) probably got the permit. Sheesh...

Thanks to MDM for the precision updates.

For an antidote to the ritual hype and endless repetition of the Weather Channel reports on Florence, take a look at this comprehensive, beautifully illustrated analysis and forecast:

https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/Flor ... ain-Surge-and-Wind-Damage

As a lifelong and avid sailor I was particularly struck by its brief description of wave heights:
Wave heights to 83 ft were measured early this morning under the NE quadrant of Hurricane Florence. These enormous waves are produced by being trapped along with very strong winds moving in the same direction the storm's motion.
I'm glad this monster doesn't have any of us in its sights!

I've been through this 3 times, all in Downtown. If it's brick then you can expect some mortar to be knocked out by the pressure washer so it will need re-pointing. And since you're already paying for the scaffolding setup you might as well get the front cornice painted at the same time. Maybe window trim if it's wood.

There's cheap quotes and there's great quality work for a bit more. Say more about the job desired and I'll get you some solid contacts-

41. “Lead A Child Astray? You’d Be Better Off Drowned!” – Jesus

Matthew 18:6
“But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
7 Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to sin! Such things must come, but woe to the man through whom they come! …

10 “See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.”

“How we treat children matters to God”

Jesus had used a small child, (who knows, it may even have been a female), to teach his disciples a basic lesson about the Kingdom of God. The relatively insignificant social status of a child challenged pride and commended humility. The child then became a vehicle for designating his followers whether young or old. To harm one of “these little ones” was to court the judgement of God.

The Law of the Kingdom of God is love; love towards God and love towards others. To offend against that Law in any form is to incur God’s just judgement. To practice harm to any, especially children, – for in the Bible they are recognized as belonging to that group of vulnerable people who deserve particular care and protection – is to offend grievously against the One who has a special regard for the vulnerable. In fact, it is, as Jesus said, better to be plunged heavily weighted into the sea, than to face the justice of the God who is Love, for being cruel to a child.

Sort of depends on the type of key. Most well-equipped locksmiths carry blanks for all popular brands. But most can only copy the old-style keys with teeth. The newer type are tougher. Try Catanio Locksmith on Grove St. at Wayne and Monaco Lock on Newark somewhere around 3rd St. If it includes the remote system then I suspect your only option will be the dealer and big bucks-

I have been following this more closely than you, JC man24. McCarrick's problem has touched the Vatican is because he went after minors as well as adult men in the seminary. McCarrick would invite seminarians to his beach house where there was only one bedroom. Not all the seminarians took kindly to McCarrick, some transferred to other seminarians and now many of them are posting on Catholic websites. McCarrick's nickname was "Uncle Ted." Pope Benedict stripped McCarrick of all privileges and was basically under house arrest. Pope Francis restored his privileges. So the former Archbishop of Newark will probably bring down the present pope in the Vatican. Abp. Carlo Maria Viganò, the former nuncio to the United States said this Pope Francis knew about McCarrick because he told him.


The Catholic Church has a serious abuse problem regardless of how finely you want to slice and dice the semantics, and the current crisis is probably going to bring up some serious world order-level changes like we haven't seen in centuries. It's going to be hilarious.


Hilarious indeed. The significant sexual abuse going on within the priesthood has been pretty well know for at least the last 50 years. And it took some seriously brave men and women to be among the first to call it out. Now the calling out is easier and the cash settlements are larger but the Catholic church (in particular) has simply paid the price and transferred accused priests to new locations where they continued to do what they do. Pretty sick, IMO.

The Catholic church is a business. Big business, as in Fortune 100 if we knew the numbers but they won't tell us and they don't pay income tax like the rest of us. The leaders of the church are simply making a calculated bet that they can get away with this shit and still make a boatload of money every year.

As for Yvonne, I wish she'd just go away. Loves Trump and loves her church and can make up her own version of "truth" by pulling it out of her ass. Repeatedly, and again and again and again. It's tiring, it's obnoxious and it's definitely not appreciated by virtually anyone on this Forum.

Hard to believe that this is happening right after the Pulaski was finally re-opened. Or, perhaps it is precisely this renovation what spurred the rushed re-opening of the Pulaski??



It was always my understanding that this was planned to start after the Pulaski Skyway repairs were finished. The mess goes on and on and on...

Personally, the space is ugly. It is a street painted green.

Maybe making more green parks is a better answer to car free zones. This is mini-Beale Street. It's cheesy.


Look again at the link in post #39. Looks to me like Barrow will remain open (northbound-only) from Columbus to Newark and that intersection where it does the little jog over to Erie will remain open.

Newark Avenue Pedestrian Plaza
#20
Home away from home
Home away from home


I knew this was being seriously considered for expansion and this morning I received the following in an email blast from our Mayor:

"Today, I will be signing an Executive Order expanding the Newark Avenue Pedestrian Plaza because I believe in the importance of working to build a pedestrian-friendly city. Car-free plazas, like the one we have created on Newark Avenue, provide major benefits to both local businesses and local residents-- they help to encourage a sense of walkability while boosting the local economy and growing the small business community."

While I generally agree with the concept (and live close enough that the walkability is a plus) I know there are a lot of business owners who expect to lose business because of this. Some get frequent deliveries, some do wholesale sales and need access for trucks to pick up, and then there's the city-owned parking lot next to the drugstore at Bay & Newark and the private lot for Bank of America customers closer to Jersey Ave. Did the City administration REALLY think this through ?

135,

Maybe you know something I don't and I'm always happy to learn. I thought this was a Federal Cap and you are saying this is (or also is) a NJ State deduction cap. This is the first I'd heard about it being a state cap. I'll reach out to some tax pros I know next week but if anyone else here knows the definitive answer, please chime in-

The $10k is the new Federal cap on deductions, and NJ is trying to find a way around that. Sure would be nice to still be able to deduct 90% of my taxes above $10k by treating it as a documented "charitable contribution" but my guess is that it's in for a tough legal fight. If it flies there will be another 10+ States all doing the same.

NJ Tax Law change today
#24
Home away from home
Home away from home


Just saw this and passing it along. I'm not getting my hope too high on this because you HAVE to pay your taxes which, by strict definition, means it cannot be treated as a charitable contribution...

"New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed a law Friday that will allow homeowners in the state to declare property taxes as charitable donations. The state law, which had broad bipartisan support in the state, was in response to the tax-law changes passed late last year by congressional Republicans, which capped the state and local tax deductions in federal filings at $10,000. Governors in higher-tax, higher-property-value states, most of whom are Democrats, had vowed to fight the law by coming up with workarounds like the one adopted in New Jersey. At the time, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called the tax law "economic civil war." On Friday, Murphy, also a Democrat, said of the federal legislation, "It is divisive, it is wrong, and we will continue to fight." In fact, many legal and tax analysts believe New Jersey will have to fight the IRS in court after taking this step. The law will allow property owners to donate up to 90% of their tax bill to charitable funds set up by municipalities in exchange for tax credits."

Agree with K-Lo2 about it being too soon to gauge a trend. But as for the $9,000 rental income, say the buyer puts down $400k and mortgages $2M at 4.18% fixed for 30 years. That's $9,839 in debt service, plus taxes, plus insurance, plus maintenance/repairs, plus loss of investment return on the down payment. In other words, a seriously-negative cash flow investment. There's been an empty just-remodeled 4-family on my block for sale for a year or so listed at $4M. No surprise it's still on the market, and their taxes just jumped to over $40k.
