b.    Blogfinger 101:  Our Wassuup posts are often deleted after they are out of date.  Otherwise almost all of our posts remain in our archives and are retrievable using the search box at the top of the Blogfinger homepage, using some key words.

 

c. Jim Grinelli, Republican candidate for Township Committee lost his running mate, and he has stopped collecting donations and running a “full-fledged” campaign, but he is still on the ballot and he wants to win.  He says that he is “fighting for the forgotten people,” and he includes the people of Ocean Grove in that category.

We will have  more details on his campaign promises as we get closer to the election, especially regarding his ideas about the Grove.

d. We will have a report on the Committee meeting of 10/22 on 10/23.

e.  An eagle was reported in Ocean Grove on 10/21, but the submitted photo was unusable.

f.  Prior BF poll:      In a recent Blogfinger poll, 88% of respondents said that they did not trust the Neptune Township Committee to do what is fair and just for Ocean Grove.  310 respondents voted. 85% said No; 9% said Yes; the rest were unsure.

g.  In 2012 the Neptune Democrats were involved in a political brawl:  Here is what was said on Blogfinger:

By Charles Layton

“The man who is seeking to replace Mary Beth Jahn on the Neptune Township Committee was himself replaced Monday night. The Township Committee voted not to reappoint Nicholas Williams to his seat on the board of the Neptune Housing Authority.”

Now Williams is the Mayor and running for re-election.

h.  And Brantley, remember when he was showing developers around the North End?  That was buried by his Democrat colleagues on the Committee:

Paul Goldfinger © Cranberry Festival. Oct. 21, 2018. ©  This kid ate too many berries and was rushing to the metal can called Mr. Bob’s on the door.

 

By Paul Goldfinger at the New Jersey Cranberry Festival.

The food stand on the top photo  had a sign that said, “Shiksabob.”

We wondered about that dish.  Was their word spelling correct for their language, or was this an English misspelling ?

We said it over and over until we figured out that it was a misspelled word:  Let’s try “Shiskabob.”  No–that’s not a word.

Then we said:   “Sishkabob,” but no, that was rejected.

But we finally realized that it was “Shishkabob,” but we tried so many versions that we began speaking gibberish and we seemed to have become fahblunget.   Or farblunget.   Oh, “farblunget” means hopelessly screwed up in Yiddish.

And, last but not least, the correct word (s) is “shish kabob.”   And even though I briefly thought I was having a stroke, we finally became coherent again as we walked to our car.

On the way,  there was a row of toilets at the Cranberry Festival with the name “Mr. Bob’s” on each  door.  A lady came out of one and walked towards me.

I held out my hand and said, “Hi, I’m Mr. Bob, and that will be 50 cents. ”   She laughed and breezed by.  No more Mr. Bob jokes.

Around town with Miss Jeanie.

“Lo and behold, a farmers market in front of Burbelmeiers today!    Fresh vegetables, herbs and flowers, combined with music in the background.
“Business was brisk as customers filled their bags with salad greens, turnips, and melons.”
