Yeah, me too but so much time between I'd forgotten most of the stuff on the list. I don't know if I knew 30% of it. You?

Vig II,

Neat post...I recalled many items of the first set... a few of the actors & notable personalities...
&
I think Michael Douglas was born in New Brunswick. I know that Roy Scheider (Jaws)
was born in Orange and lived in Maplewood. General Schwartzkopf was born in Trenton, lived in Maplewood
for awhile, and had a shooting range in his basement...


How about our contributions to golf (hope I didn't miss this in the write-up)
The Golf Tee was born at the Maplewood CC
and the Mulligan was rooted in the Essex Fells Club.[ From a Mulligan who made a habit of "Duffing"
his first attempt at striking the ball. (mmm wonder who Duff was)]

Not to mention our questionable contributions to the English language...
Djeet? Hang a louie...

OK, now I'm exhausted...


I think I'll read it again..

I went down there in '05 to pick up my Harley .... so I pull into a gas station & start pumping, & I'm sitting there goin' WTF is this guy standing next to me for! I say "can I help you" sort of sarcastically .... then I look around & nobody is pumping their own gas .... I'm like "full service aye?" .... He says, "yep" So I kept pumping...

Wasn't until I got home that I realized NJ was FULL SERVICE everywhere! I still don't get the point of that ... but that's fine with me. I'm all for being as lazy as possible! :lol: Also had no idea cell phones were a no no also ... .. I can imagine the comments in the cars I was passing in the left lane, 30 over the limit, trailer in tow & a phone stuck in my ear for most of the trip. MASSHOLE! :lol:

I think George Carlin was inspired by New Jersey drivers when said something along lines of:
"Have you ever noticed that drivers going slower than you, are morons,
and drivers going faster than you are Maniacs?"
Guess, I know where that puts me.
If I wave as I go by does that make me a friendly :D maniac?

New Jersey believes it is TOO DANGEROUS for drivers to pump their own fuel... :blowup:

No,meneether.

There's a chicken in the oven but I have this sudden craving for some really good Pizza.
Back in the sixties there was a "pizza joint" down the shore in Ortley on the bayside.
Costies (sp?) ( pronounced coss-tees) They had great pizza. I asked the fellow how they did it...
he said that apart from their prime ingredients, the pizza was baked/roasted on a buttered pan...
Never had a better pizza (better than joints in the City)...crust to die for...

Chicken again :sick:
