Happy Thanksgiving!

(Nov. 26, 2009) I hope everyone has a very happy Thanksgiving with family and friends. This national holiday is my favorite one since all it entails is remembering all we have to be thankful for and enjoying together a traditional meal of turkey with all the trimmings and lots of visiting.

Leaves are down, winter's on its way

(Nov. 6) Well, recent winds have blown almost all the leaves off the trees out here in the country. And falling temperatures signal winter's on its way. Before the snow flies, we better get those leaves picked up and added to the compost pile.

But this weekend, I'm hoping to start the rounds of holiday boutiques sponsored by area churches and other organizations. You can find some really unusual gifts and other treasures including crafts and homemade cookies. Check out the calendar of events in your Recorder Newspaper as well as online in its various blogs.

Meantime, winter will keep us all indoors more, perhaps reading and/or writing blogs. Anyone interested in blogging right on the Recorder Community Newspapers Web site may call me at (908) 832-7420 or e-mail The process is very simple and there is no charge for this multimedia service.

Election Day tomorrow

(Nov. 2, 2009) Tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov. 3, is Election Day. Candidates are running for governor and lieutenant governor, state senate, general assembly, freeholders and local town committees. There is one state public question on bonding for land and water preservation.

Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Vote for the candidate you believe will do the best job, not for the best of two political party lines because you don't think your guy can win. If all thinking citizens vote, maybe we can get New Jersey back on the right track.
