Why it's important to remember Super Bowl 2014 is in New Jersey

If you have any friends from New Jersey, you're probably sick of all of the "THE SUPER BOWL IS IN NEW JERSEY NOT NEW YORK POSTS".  I get it, it must be annoying, but sadly it is something we feel must be constantly defended.  Today I'm here to explain to you why it is so important to all us Garden Staters that the media and everyone else gets this right....more

Oh! Tomatos How I Love Thee!!!!!

It's summer and our garden is in full bloom!!!  My husband has a green thumb and has managed to grow the most amazing Jersey tomatos that we have had in years.  I have so many that I will give them away to friends and family and still have plenty to make some homemade pasta sauce (or gravy, whichever you prefer) for the winter.  That recipe will follow shortly.   I just needed to share a picture of our beautiful tomatos.  These tomatos didn't come so easily we had to fight off Groundhogs and Squirrels to grow them.  The fight was worth it and we still have...more

So, it's been 20 years since a woman moderated a general election presidential debate.

I had to give up my New York state drivers license yesterday. I dreaded letting go. It wasn’t so much letting go of New York, as it was the acquisition of a New Jersey license. Jersey? Please.  ...more

The Summer of 1962

My  mother, who was passing me in the hallway in the morning and at night, might have a reason for being out of touch with my feelings and moods.  She was always busy, always distracted, but lately had seemed even more so.  She had a lot on her plate at work always, heart breaking stories of single women who were struggling to make it by suing for child support, or even worse, the stories where the mothers simply didn't care about anyone but themselves and screwing as many people (literally and figuratively) along the way to get what they wanted.  ...more
