Who knew you could shred a safe? I always thought you'd need a blow torch or something.

I wondered about that too.

Anyway, here's a video of the process: the containers get pulled up and part of the side of the truck also rises, the votes get dumped, supposedly shredded and everything comes back down for reload.

Well, whaddaya know? Steve dropped by from my site and now we have the Shredding Trifecta.

BTW - I sent these to the shredding company's GM and he got a chuckle of of them.


There were actually two of these trucks parked on State St. This looks like the other one just exploded.

Too bad Steve Vai and his guitar aren't in the picture or else we'd have a shredding trifecta.


This is an athletic variation of the big-backpacked, eyes-glued-to-the-phone Pokepeople I usually see in the E lot.

This is a perfect candidate for a "before" rehab shot.

Looking forward to posting the "after" one.

Two seat-belt slackers got a surprise yesterday on State St.

The political parties change and morph over time, but one thing has always been true about the Republican Party from Abe Lincoln straight up to Donald Trump.  The Republican Party is, among other things, the party of BIG BUSINESS.  And in the 1860's, that was big business of the North versus the agriculture-based South.

I have no idea what any of that has to do with the price of eggs, but here's what I got out of it.................I think:

...........a certain tuna company that I won't name.

If that thing had stuck in my throat, I might have had to swallow that penny to try to dislodge it.

Their tuna is OK, but I could do without the skeletal structure.

Sorry, Charlie.


And this is last week's news (2/18).

This might be the earliest I've seen this of any year.

I'm sure gonna miss this view when the local rehabilitation project happens.


(except for the last one, which was taken in Paramus)

I believe the luncheonette was called Stelje's or something similar.

Could the name have been "Stellje's"?

I blew up that part of the picture (below) and that spelling looks like it might be a fit, but, of course, there could be others.

It sounds like a place that Ol' Homer might have frequented, so maybe he knows.

Geez............the seller has the word right in front of him and he still can't spell "Bergen".

That comment won't make any sense after the auction page is eventually removed by eBay, so below is a screen capture of what the seller wrote in his title.

No one's bought it, so the shirt has now been relisted a couple of times. If anyone's interested, the price has gone down and he's even included a "Best Offer" option (also shown in the screen capture), so he's really looking to unload this thing.

I found a couple of things, though the first one doesn't seem likely. The name of the book this came from is in the URL.

If you can find March 5, 1962 company business filing information for Teen Towners in Hackensack, you might have your answer.

If you go by the 1959 Teaneck High School yearbook, it might have something to do with draperies or furniture covers. 291 Main appears to be the right address.
