National Milk Chocolate Day 7/28!

National Milk Chocolate Day 7/28!Milk chocolate is my favorite chocolate! I'm not a dark or white chocolate person at all. Dark is too bitter and white is too sweet. Milk is just right. :-)

Enjoy the day milk chocolate lovers!!!!

Lost Wallet Returned

There are still good and honest people in this world. My son lost his wallet on Route 57 today in Hackettstown. We spent hours looking for it this afternoon. So happy when the police called to say that it had been turned in. Thank you to the person who did the right thing- we are very grateful!!

Looking for a local sewing teacher

Someone to teach my 9 year old sewing 101 in our home.

Beware guy selling meat door to door

A man just drove up to our house saying he had high quality steaks that he needed to get rid of for cheap, that he was out in our area making deliveries and needed to unload the leftovers.

Just a heads up to anyone in Hackettstown. These are classic scams. Don't fall for it.

Just bought a motorcycle

Just bought a motorcycleI searched, but surprisingly didn't see a thread about bikes?

Anyway- Last week, I purchased another streetbike. My friends reply was- could you have picked a hotter day? :) I always wear full gear, regardless of the temp.

Does anyone on here ride? I saw a guy with a ZRX while I was metal detecting a few weeks ago in Hackettstown- spoke with him briefly.

So here is the new scoot-
