You can talk back

(Aug. 28, 2009) Blogging is an interactive communication tool. You can communicate to any of Recorder Newspapers' bloggers by going down to "comments" and typing your response in the available window as directed.

Blogging also is real time, so groups can post their latest news or changes in plans caused by the weather or other conditions. Be sure to check often for their postings.

Oldtime summer

(Aug. 11, 2009) For the first time this summer, yesterday we turned on our air conditioners. The 90+ degree weather reminded me of summers long ago - hot, hot, hot. I guess we should be careful what we wish for. When this summer's days were cool and rainy, we hoped for sunny weather, and we got it and then some.
It's the perfect time to stay indoors in air-conditioned rooms and blog your news. Recorder Community Newspapers invites you to share your blogs on the newspapers' Web site for our online readers. Please contact me to find out how to take advantage of this free offer. Call my home office at (908) 832-7420 or e-mail I will be happy to help you with this very easy process.

Back home ... in the rain again

(Aug. 4, 2009) We're back home from a spectacular vacation on the Outer Banks of North Carolina ... sun every day on a glorious beach. What a great break from the continuous rain here in northern New Jersey.

Our home was deluged by the "Niagara Falls" storm early Sunday afternoon ... four inches of rain fell in less than a half hour. Although our basement floor and walls are water-tight, water rushed in through the edges of a basement window, flooding the whole level. What a nightmare! With help from our daughter and her family the water is all swept up via an industrial-size wet-vacuum and fans and dehumidifiers are completing the job.

We needed Monday to recuperate from aching backs, arms and legs.

Today, I'm ready to help with the Recorder blogging. Anyone interested in sharing a blog on the Recorder Community Newspapers Web site is invited to phone me at (908) 832-7420 or e-mail Blogging is an easy, real time, multi-media way to share your news.
