Goodbye Bagels-4-U of Denville; We'll Miss You

… not even a note goodbye.

Today, my wife needed to be in the city for work, so after dropping her off at the train station, I stopped for a bagel at my normal spot, Bagels-4-U of Denville.  They usually open at 5:30 and by now it was about 7 am, so when I found […]

WDHA is off the air

Don’t know what is going on, but WDHA radio is off the air right now. Contest phone line is busy.

It is a bummer, because I am in the garage right now and want to rock.

You say potato, I say potato, let’s call the whole thing off (or not)

So, I am a New Jersian who frequently travels to Manhattan for both business and pleasure.  Due to the difficulty of traffic and parking in New York City, I prefer taking mass transit, so improved rail access to the city is something which I support.  When Governor Christie cancelled the ARC tunnel project, I was […]

Friends of Splitrock Created

I have created the Friends of Splitrock, a community group with the goal of preserving and promoting access to the Splitrock Reservoir.

I will continue to post major updates on this issue here, but there will be a lot more information available over at the Friends of Splitrock website.  Already I have gotten some positive news […]

Rockaway Township barricades Splitrock Reservoir parking lot

I visited the Splitrock Reservoir this evening expecting to get some good fishing in.  I had been chased off the water early on both Friday and Saturday nights by thunderstorms moving into the area, but the temperature was back down to the mid-eighties today and the full moon was going to be coming up right […]
