Tickatoe - the barn door option is what we're shooting for, too.

I actually spoke to these guys who advertised on JCList -

info@j-jhomeremodeling.com

They were really nice and are knowledgeable about this type of installation. Very hospitable to offering ideas and advice. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Re: Water damaged wall and ceiling

You need to get a water remediation team in immediately to properly assess and dry out the affected areas. Mold begins to grow due to moisture right away and just painting over the area doesn't take care of the issue. Call Servpro - 51 Fairmount Ave, Jersey City, NJ 07304 -Phone: (201) 656-0035. Your/tenant above's insurance should cover costs. Good luck.

I have a quick question for the pros here - I have water damaged ceiling and walls in an apartment due to a leak from the unit above.

To repair those ceiling and walls, can one just "paint over" the stained areas?

Or is the proper way to remove the existing stained ceiling and wall parts, put on new drywall, then paint?

Also, the exhaust fan area was heavily stained (and I could tell that that's where a lot of the water dripped down, since the toilet below it is completely splattered, and the waste basket is half full with water). Should the exhaust fan be replaced due to potential water damage, and for safety measure?

Please help - and thanks!

I'm working with the same issue right now. The best alternative we've found so far is the barn door install.They have some nice low cost models at Lowes - and higher end options online.

Pinterest/Google "Interior Barn Doors" for ideas.

A deal may be in the works in the grocery business industry. Sprouts Farmers Market (SFM) soared in early trading after Bloomberg reported that privately held Albertsons was in talks with the organic grocer about a potential merger. A deal would add to Albertsons’ portfolio of supermarket brands, which includes Safeway, Vons and Shaws.


Wonder if they could get sued by the main Sprouts if they found out about this.

I don't think I could open my own fast food place and call it McDonald.

Does anyone know what's the current recess policies in JC schools? How long are they, how frequent, how much physical activity is allowed?


I don't know about JC, but when my kids went to public school in Bayonne, they had 15-20 minutes of recess after lunch in a paved parking lot. The kids were punished if they dared run or do any physical activity beyond standing and talking.

Military flyover exercises planned

By Margaret Schmidt | The Jersey Journal
on March 11, 2017 at 10:51 AM

An alert has gone out that approximately 10 military helicopters will conduct a flyover training exercise over the Verrazano Bridge, Hudson River, East River, Harlem River, and the Statue of Liberty both today and Tuesday.

The choppers are expected to fly between 500 and 1,000 feet.

Today, the exercise is set for between 1 and 3 p.m.

On Tuesday, the exercise is set for between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. There's no word on whether the exercises will take place if the expected snowstorm materializes.

I'm having fun playing - won some aspirin and a donut! You can find a list of "rare" pieces online and believe it or not, people are selling their extra tickets on Ebay. Rare pieces are going for hundreds of dollars in auctions. The "H" piece for the vacation home sold for $400 on Ebay on March 1st. The "G" piece starting bid is $200.

Several stores related to ACME are doing this, but it's all the same game.

I know, I really need to get out more.

That's funny - I drove by today, saw the permit on the window and wondered the same thing. That place is an awesome property. It used to be a firehouse. There's a huge space on the bottom floor, a small, school-like gymnasium on the second floor and a (potentially) kick ass apartment that overlooks the skyline. I looked at the property a while ago but there was a remediation issue there if I remember correctly. The uses were amazing.

HIGHLAND PARK -- Police say a former borough man illegally videotaped women, including a 19-year-old who he filmed secretly while she showered at his home.

Karl M Kjer, 57, was charged Friday with one count invasion of privacy for allegedly using a hidden camera to record the teenager in June, 2015, Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey said.

Kjer, who now lives in Jersey City, was charged after the 19-year-old was identified, Carey said in a release Tuesday.

Two people were injured in a shooting on Bergen Avenue Sunday evening.

The shooting was reported at about 6 p.m. near Clendenny Avenue. Both victims, a man and woman in their 20s, were transported to Jersey City Medical Center for treatment, according to police sources with knowledge of the investigation.

It's unclear the extent of their injuries. Officials could not immediately provide information.

At the scene, detectives canvassed the area with at least eight evidence markers lining the sidewalk outside a home.

I'm thinking March 15th to start them indoors this year, but I need to do more research.


Maybe it's an old gardener's tale, but it just wasn't the warmth of the soil, it was the longer days and sunlight exposure that went into the Mother's Day planting formula. Just a thought.

Hope this topic is helpful for all of us!
Happy Planting!


My dear old Dad's rule of thumb was to start planting outdoors after Mother's Day. If you're going all in, you can start your seedlings indoors just about now and germinate your tomatoes from seed. If you're a new gardener, I recommend starting with the established seedlings you buy from a good garden center to plant outdoors (not Home Depot - drive and find somewhere good!). Sorry, I'm a garden nursery snob.

A couple of hints learned from my dad:

Make sure you do a good job before hand of fertilizing and tilling your soil in your outdoor pots or plots. Planting marigold flowers next to your tomatoes provides a natural bug repellent. Releasing live ladybugs helps control aphids (and it's the coolest thing to watch). And remember to prune your tomato suckers!

This is a great resource for gardeners.

Good luck!

JERSEY CITY -- The City Council will consider a "no knock" law aimed at aggressive real estate investors next week, with council members saying today the measure will protect longtime residents.

The ordinance would update the city's anti-solicitation law by including anyone looking to purchase real estate for themselves or for a third party. It would also create a "no knock" registry letting investors know which homes are owned by someone not interested in selling.

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



Unless there are real teeth behind reporting, enforcement and penalties, this ordinance just won't work. The parties that engage in this behavior don't care a whit about rules, propriety or people's privacy. They are emboldened - and they push and push until they get their way. It's been a growing problem and I'm happy the council is investigating this - as long as residents have a sensible and real-time way of getting redress against offenders.

I can't believe they collected $17k all ready. I'm usually cynical of these type of charities.


With good reason besides dubious causes (a fool and his money...). GoFundMe takes a nice chunk of each donation. Further, as I've run a few of them for community members in need, people can make donations and then effectively cancel them a month later when their credit card statement arrives and they don't "remember" making that charge. That comes right back out of your bank account as a reverse charge if you've withdrawn the collected funds and used them for the charitable purpose. It's happened to our fundraisers several times and GoFundMe doesn't care. Also, funds you collect could be taxable in certain cases - GoFundMe sends out 1099's at year end - and beneficiaries are on the hook for these taxes.
