Hope Dunkin Donuts

Just FYI that it exists in the old bank building across Rt 80 by Tramountain Harley Davidson. Pretty amazing that after a number of failed businesses and casual restaurants, this guy opens up and they are streaming in. And they don't even make the donuts there!!! (they do make the other stuff).

EZ drive through (like a bank's without the tubes), very nice accommodations inside (like a bank....) and always a nice stream of people coming in hopefully keeping those donuts moving and fresh.

Dental Clinic

Has anyone gone to a dental clinic for a root canal lately? I called UMDNJ//Rutgers earlier and they would not give prices over the phone. I just want to see if is worth me making the appointment for the evaluation or if I should just pay out-of-pocket for a dentist around here. Thanks!

RIP - Father Andrew Apostoli

A true man of God. Probably unknown by anyone who doesn't watch EWTN which is most people :)

It gives me hope that there are so many people like him, outside of 'pop culture', that tirelessly, and without widespread recognition, try to make the world a better place.

RIP Father Apostoli. Pray for us.

RIP Pat DiNizio- Smithereens Lead Singer

What a voice, what great shows they put on, farewell Pat DiNizio at only 62 years old, lead singer of the NJ band the Smithereens.

Saw him and the band many times, was looking forward to them going back on the road next year after his latest health issue- but that time will never come.

RIP Pat.
