She reminds me of Mrs. Lovett, the accomplice  to the demon barber of Fleet Street from the show Sweeney Todd.  She also was the owner of the meat pie store where most of the show centers.


JOHNNY DEPP AND HELEN BONHAM CARTER with “By the Sea.”   Maybe they’ll open a shop on Main Avenue in Ocean Grove.  We could use some unusual cuisine.

Picture a guy standing by the water as the sun is going down. He’s writing an email on his iPhone, and as he thinks of her, this song emerges, floating past him.

He looks at the water and as he listens to Leon Redbone, he wonders, “Should I jump or should I hit ‘send?'”      —Paul Goldfinger, Blogfinger.net.

The Village of Loch Arbour, New Jersey was founded in 1958. According to the 2010 census, the population is 194. This photograph was obtained on a gorgeous June day at 7 pm—the “golden time” for photography.  The image shows a group of homes arranged in a courtyard.  It is reminiscent of Ocean Grove with historic houses going back to the early 1900’s.  There is a porch culture like ours.

I spoke to a family sitting on their porch having a drink.  The kids were doing cartwheels under a giant  tree, and we met Mom and Dad, who  is a volunteer fireman.  The common areas are beautifully tended, and all the neighbors share that expense.

It seems like the kind of a place that would be a setting for a Jimmy Stewart movie. I got the impression that this is a neighborly place, a place where memories are made.
