sounds like a similar beggar that's hanging out on montgomery at bergen in the afternoon. usually he walks up to my car and sees my dog in the passenger seat and moves on.

sounds like the flapper, and you may need a new handle mechanism...they loosen up/bend over time. mine took about 15 minutes to fix. my dad recently re-did his with buttons instead of handles and it completely stopped the running problems.

Re: Good arcade for an 8 year old?

fun time america on route 35 (or 36) south, near keyport/hazlet. i hear it's similar to what sportsworld in paramus once was.

chuck-e-cheese on 22, and i think there may still be one up in north bergen.

also the arcades in keansburg are open year round, a lot of them with ticket prizes for the games. we went to one a few months ago that had a hurricane simulator, but most of the games at that one were claw machines.

richieknucklez in flemington just closed. arcades in malls are a thing of the past unfortunately....

Re: Is showing a rental with a yellow living room a mistake?
#4
Home away from home
Home away from home


i would rent a place with pretty much any color wall as long as i had permission to repaint it if were totally necessary. i looked at an apartment once with orange walls in the bedrooms and me and a few friends decided to rent it based on the living space being absolutely huge. my last 2 choices of apartments were pretty bland, one place still only had primer on the walls when we moved in and we never painted it...left a year later because linoleum flooring throughout was pretty tacky to say the least and the neighborhood was kind of not "friendly." the place i'm in now has wood floors that looks like they haven't been refinished in over 15 years. what it all comes down to is room size and permitting tenants to paint. for this one i opted to buy the paint myself prior to moving in to save the landlord a few bucks in having to paint it all white and then having me repaint it anyway. i did all light earthy colors that will be easily painted over whenever i decide to move on.

sometimes people are turned on by odd colors, i've seen some pretty wacky listings in the past on craigslist where realtors would write "it's ugly, but an awesome apartment!" such as green, pink, purple, red walls. you never know, and i definitely hope you find a nice tenant who will find humor and happiness renting your apartment :) when it comes down to it, i highly doubt paint colors are the main concern these days. a lot of people just look for something comfortable and accommodating to relaxing and resting their head.

Re: Mega Millions is 640 million!!! What would you do with the money??
#5
Home away from home
Home away from home


for myself i would buy a 3-4 floor brownstone with a garage behind it (one of those alleyways is fine on 4th or 5th) near hamilton park/harsimus cove and have it gutted and the patio yard area landscaped simply with a hammock and a trampoline while keeping some old world charm inside the house (though there would definitely be a ball room for people to jump in!), have my car fixed or upgrade a year or two (no bmw's or any of that bs for me.) and buy a 3-4 bedroom vacation house in a community that mows the lawn and maintains the neighborhood when nobody is home, and has a community pool and bbq area outside of tampa so that friends/family could visit and have a place to stay when they want to drive over to disney or check out the west coast beaches. maybe i'd give some relatives/friends a helping hand, of course after having a lawyer and financial professionals help me manage the money and keep myself protected from theft and scams.

to give back to others i would open some more cancer treatment centers, specifically for cancers in reproductive organs, and open up an audiology specific hospital that provides charity care for cochlear implants and hearing aids to those less fortunate. i'd also build jersey city a new animal shelter that could support the needs of our city, such as indoor/outdoor runs for dogs and an actual adoption center with cozy areas for people to meet potential pets in the winter months and large runs and a low stress sanctuary facility within the grounds for older surrenders and unsocialized animalswho aren't easily placed.

someday! maybe during one of the future mega millions. one can only dream.

Also love the little crab rangoons at ox. Small but tasty.

Second the crispy squid at nha trang along with the #1 soup bowl or the small bowl alternative.

the dollar vans eventually go on palisade which involves a walk up to summit....same for the njt 86 line which goes up newark and onto palisade without having to go through journal square first. other than that you're still stuck with a walk or a bus change at the square.

After several occasions of stepping in dog poop on the sidewalk on Mercer St - between Barrow and Jersey on the south side, I finally witnessed the source.

The woman who lives at 89 Mercer Street with the two little white dogs who lives up on the top ofthe stoop lets her dogs out unleashed and unattended at night (like tonight at 1045pm). One dog walk a few buildings down the sidewalk towards Barrow, takes a crap, and runs back when the uncaring neighbor pokes her lazy head out the door and calls "Bridget"

Next time you see her please tell her she's a lousy neighbor.
ah yes, that lady. I've come within inches of punting one of those dogs halfway down the street. I don't care how tiny the dog is, if it comes up to me barking and growling and trying to bite me, it's going to get a boot to the jaw.


i guess they call them football dogs for a reason...

we used to play count the poop on duncan ave while walking to the bus stop from high school...we'd have to dodge mountains of poop, especially when there was snow on the ground. growing up in the heights a lot of dog owners would just let their dogs run the street to poop and not care. duncan ave has cleaned up tremendously but there still a few violators in that area. i find myself reaching for bags even when i'm not working as a dog walker. it's disgusting.

between 200 and 400 for mix em up, roughly the same for authentic, sometimes cheaper if a graduate hooks you up with a referral coupon. stay clear of ABC bartending in the newspaper, total scam.

i went to mix em up in linden. they have a facebook account too......basically when i left there i had several hundred cocktails memorized and knew everything i needed to know to work behind a real bar and made back the money i paid for the course in my first 2 days of working behind a dive bar out in belleville. after the first few jobs i had enough experience that i didn't need to tell anyone i went to a school. the hands on training was great because you get the feel of everything, work with fake liquors/mixers, real bar equipement, and do speed drills and memorization drills. i recommend it if you really want to learn a lot of drinks and the chemistry involved in making good drinks...

you'll at least learn the facts about that lonely galliano bottle.

i'm a big fan of some of the random stuff i find at trader joe's. their prices are reasonable for the most part and they do tend to have things you don't find at shoprite/a&p on a regular basis, but i hate the drive to edgewater far too much to go up there on a regular basis. i like to buy stuff to bring to parties from there such as their layer dips, appetizers, and prepared items, so when i'm planning on bringing snacks somewhere to entertain, i have no problem taking the trip. for regular groceries though, a&p and shop rite work just fine for me.
