Hackensack Discussion / Re: boycott

I used to read your blog more, before you merged them all.  I am less interested in restaurant and food, and more in Hackensack stuff.

As for the referendum, I honestly believe the Zisa's have nothing to do with it, and I wouldn't even be sure that Jack Zisa would vote YES. I think it's more the Democratic Municipal Committee, the Hurwitz's, Mark Stein, and Rick Salkin. And basically that is what is left of the Zisa machine. Jack Zisa is currently chair of the Bergen County Republican Organization, which I think has no elected officials on the County level.

And the numbers/news numbskullery continues................

You did better than me.  I went out there around 11:30 looked up, said "whoa!" and came back in.

Great pictures. 
It was SO frickin' cold on the roof last night and SO hard to get these shots that I had to stop 8 minutes before the eclipse was full at 11:41pm. The moon was directly overhead, which made it difficult to use the tripod..........or even see the screen. I snapped the handle off the tripod trying to get it to bend all the way back.

But the cold........oh my God! The temp was 12, the winds were about 30 mph and the wind chill was 5. Even with a glove on with the index fingertip cut off so I could maintain the focal pressure on the shutter, it was nearly impossible. I couldn't feel my fingertip and thought it might be getting frostbit or frozen to the metal shutter button.

But I did get some semblance of what transpired over the course of an hour (and I was NOT outside the whole timeI may be dedicated, but Im not insane).

And I have no idea why the middle two images show a smaller moon. I thought I maxed out the zoom constantly.

Lets hope for warmer weather when it happens again in 2022.

Hackensack Discussion / MLK 2019

If you search these boards, you'll find several topics about MLK. 

I run along the Hackensack River often. I have to say that I really appreciate having the MLK statue there.  It's life-sized, against a picturesque scene which will only be enhanced when FDU soon replaces the pedestrian bridge across the river.  There's a quiet, reflective place to sit, read, think. Students pass the statue on the way to class and can't help but feel inspired and encouraged. It feels personal,- like he's there saying, "Don't give up. You can do this. You are not alone."

Eric, I just posted more on the school referendum tomorrow, on this message board and on my blog And you're wrong that I am against education. I'm just against the Zisa-controlled school board's profligate ways -- high legal fees, high administrative salaries, schools run into the ground, no green energy on any school building or apparently for the proposed new junior high. etc. etc.
