This is off on a tangent but related, since we're talking about wild animals... Did anyone ever hear raccoons mating in their back yard, or somewhere outside their home?

I did once, a few summers ago I think, in the middle of the night, it was so loud and intense it woke me up, since my bedroom faces my backyard, on the ground level and I can't say for sure the raccoons were actually mating but it sure looked and sounded like it as it had been described before. Let me tell you, it was one of those things so unique it stays permanently etched in your mind. Sounded like cats fighting, only 100 times louder with screams 100 times more intense. When they finished their business, both were covered in blood and then just wandered away. Not quite the way humans mate. I think it woke up some people in the surrounding homes too because I saw a few other lights on that night.

You just don't see stuff like this on the National Geographic Channel, or Nova. Mother Nature at her finest.

Illegal gambling at County Schools

I was looking for information about the current school board candidates and came upon this article. Surprised I hadn't seen it in other news outlets as the story is a few months old. I have repeatedly heard that admission to these schools can be all about having the right connections, but don't know much else about the politics in the county schools.

options for TV for a non- tech savvy person

I currently have Verizon fios for internet, phone and TV. My 2 year commitment has ended and I think I'm getting rid of my land line. I just got a roku because I have amazon prime but don't really know how to set it up. Will I need Netflix and hulu? (Neither of which I've used before). Any suggestions? Should I keep Verizon for internet and ditch them for phone and cable?

Re: Part-time programs for 2-3 year olds Downtown?

We couldn't have been happier with the program at Grace Church. It's flexible so that we didn't have to pay if my daughter was sick or if we were out of town & could often pick up an extra day here or there if we needed it. The caregivers are amazing and it's the best bargain around. They explained that the hours were reduced a couple summers ago because programs have to have a license from the stat of new jersey if they are longer than two hours (and have more than a handful of kids). There is a waiting list, but you can also usually stop by in the morning to check it out.

Good Luck.

Is it just families whose kids go to the school who go to this dance? My kid is on the waiting list and my nephew is considering St. Anthony's. I'm thinking about getting tickets because I've always been curious about Casino in the Park, but not sure if it's primarily for those schools. Will the location change every year or can I just plan on it next year if my kid (hopefully) gets in?

Re: rules for renting out a basement apt?

Does anyone know the rules for converting a one family to a two family (renting out the ground floor which will have 2 exits) in the McGinley Square area. What sort of permits would be needed and would there be any difficultly doing this if it's not owner occupied?

Re: HUGE GAS PIPELINE COMING - through Jersey City

Is there any point in giving bogus names on the spectra petitions as in will it cause more problems for them in the long run if it turns out that a percentage of the signers are bogus? I had people approach me yesterday & made sure to take up a good 20 minutes of their time before I told them that I wouldn't sign and then I started to wonder about maybe if I should have geven a false name since it took up a good 20 minutes of my time to.

part time childcare for a 2yo
#9
Newbie

I've been seeing all kinds of flyers around for part time childcare but they average about $40+ for three hours and I can find a babysitter for that amount. I'm pretty sure that a neighbor of mine who moved away sent her son to a drop off childcare place for only $20-25 and sometimes she didn't have to pay because she stayed to help out for part of the time. Does anyone know the name of the place or if they're prices went way up too?

Re: Ob/Gyn and a place to deliver a baby

If you are looking for any kind of a natural (unmedicated) birth experiece, I would NOT recommend Hackensack. My daughter was born there and I found the majority of the nursing staff to be downright rude when I told them I did not want the epidural and had discussed this previously with my OB. Also, you are hooked up to an IV as soon as you get there. There was so much pressure for me to get an epidural that I did end up with one and did not have a good experience with it. I wasn't totally opposed to getting one, but I wanted to keep my options open in the early stages of labor. Also, their C-section rates are incredibly high...not that this is scientific in any way, but of all my friends who delivered there, I am the only one who did not have a section.

Yes, there are private rooms with plasma TVs & the food is good, but that's not really the priority for most women in labor or with a newborn. Also, even with the private room, it was loud and they were unaccomodating to visitors. My husband was not able to stay overnight. Then they insisted on keeping my daughter for jaundice and sent me home after two days. Her pediatrican as well as other docs I have subsequently spoken with said that it was totally unnecessary given her bilirubin levels. In the future I plan to switch to Brescia/Mig. as I've heard that they are much more open (as are St. Mary's, Palisades and Meadowlands Hospitals) to respecting the requests that their patients make.

And I was 34 when my daughter was born, so not sure how that plays out in terms of being considered "higher risk", but I think that's more for the pregnancy & possible risks to the baby for women of "advanced age" than the delivery.
