I CALL THIS 42 SECONDS OF QUIET.  WHEN YOU LIVE ON LONG BEACH BOULEVARD WHICH I DO THE TRAFFIC IS KIND OF ALWAYS THERE.  GOOD OR BAD HOW CAN ONE NOT PAY ATTENTION TO IT.  WE CAN SIT OUT ON OUR PORCH WITH A COUPLE OF COLD ONES AND DISCUSS VERY IMPORTANT TOPICS AS I AM A VERY INTERESTING GUY AS YOU KNOW.  THIS IS ALL DONE OVER THE TRAFFIC NOISE.  THEN SOMETHING VERY INTERESTING HAPPENS…THE LIGHTS [WHICH ARE NOW ON FOR THE SUMMER] STOP THE TRAFFIC.  WE SIT BACK AND GO AHHH!! IN ALMOST PURE QUIET.  THIS WILL LAST FOR 42 SECONDS THEN OFF THEY GO AGAIN.  HOW MANY VERY IMPORTANT TOPICS CAN YOU DISCUSS IN 42 SECONDS?  OH WELL ON THE BRIGHT SIDE WE GET TO SEE MANY OF THE NEW CARS THAT GO BY.  IF YOU NEED TO DISCUSS ANY VERY IMPORTANT TOPICS JUST CONTACT US AND WE WILL GIVE YOU THE 42 SECONDS.  WE CAN MAYBE EVEN TALK ABOUT REAL ESTATE.

BOUGHT A BOAT

Posted on: March 24th, 2016 by admin

Yes, it is true; I bought another boat.  Since hurricane Sandy took my last one I have been boat-less for a few years.  Ya know it’s not that bad without one…no bottom painting, no waxing, no motor work, no running aground (not that I would have done that) no breakdowns etc.  Actually all of those “nos” is what boating is all about except for that pesky running aground thing. ( Not that I  have ever done that )  So after a few years I got the bug again to fool around on the high seas and actually bought one. I never claimed to be that smart.  Ah yes a boat “A HOLE IN THE WATER TO POUR MONEY INTO”. The interesting part is the actual boat purchase is the lease expensive part.  Hmm!! Let me see…boat slip $3300, name change $400, detailing $650, bottom painting $350, fuel to start the season $700, insurance $288, the launching $200 and the list goes on.  Now you do get to hang around the marina and drink beer and tell fishing lies with your buddies, take some cruises, try to catch some fish (it’s fishing not catching ) and even run aground sometimes ( not that I have ever done that).  So here I go again and I hope to see you on the high seas or maybe just out on the bay.  Just in case on a slim chance you might find me stuck in shallow water you don’t need to help out.  We always have plenty of beer on board for such emergencies.  Of coarse we would be happy to share a cold one.

You’re fellow “don’t know no better” boater,  Tom

A FUN ARTICLE FROM JerseyMan magazine

Posted on: March 13th, 2016 by admin

From the publisher of JerseyMan magazine.

I WENT TO THE PHILLY POPS RECENTLY

It got me to thinking about music and how unique the sections and instruments are.  There is a brashness of the brass, the delicate nature of the strings, the boldness of percussion and the eloquence of the woodwinds.  Amazing how all of these different elements come together and create beautiful music.  Since it is the political season as well, it got me to thinking how dysfunctional our government is. And how chaotic the presidential nominees are.

Donald Trump is a tuba, emitting loud and overwhelming sounds.    Clinton is a trumpet, blowing out her agenda for all to hear.   Ben Carson is a piccolo, whispering his message in soft and muted tones.   Bernie Sanders is a mad violinist fiddling like his hair is on fire.  Chris Christie is a cymbal, delivering his opinions with a crash.   Carly Fiorina is a harp, letting her conservative edict flow from her deft fingertips.  Jeb Bush is a triangle, never wavering in tone or rhythm.  Teb Cruz is a piano that can deliver sharp right wing chords.  Marco Rubio is a tambourine, shaking his message with Cuban flair.

The orchestra conductor makes all the instruments come together in wondrous harmony.   It’s just too bad we don’t have someone with a wand that can lead our presidential hopefuls and channel their differences into a melody that will benefit all of us.

LET THE POLITICAL MUSIC PLAY ON.                                               Thoughts from Ken Dunek

I SOME HOW FIND THE CHANGE OF THE SEASONS VERY INTERESTING AND NECESSARY: YOU KNOW LIKE WE WOULD ALL LIKE TO BE IN FLORIDA IN THE WINTER TIME BUT WOULDN’T YOU MISS THE FALL LEAVES, THE BEAUTIFUL WHITE SNOW…OK OK THE JURY IS OUT ON THE SNOW THING…SORRY MAYBE I LIKE THE SNOW THING, THE BRIGHT CLEAR SKY, THE CALMNESS OF LONG BEACH ISLAND OFF SEASON.  I KNOW YA GOTTA LOVE THE TOURISTS. MAYBE THE WINTER IS LIKE BANGING YOUR HEAD AGAINST A WALL IT FEELS SO GOOD WHEN YOU STOP) BUT JUST TAKE A BUNDLED UP WALK ON THE BEACH ALONE AND FIND SOME RARE SHELLS, DRIFTWOOD AND MAYBE EVEN YOURSELF.  I LIKE TO CALL IT “THE WAIT”.  THE WAIT FOR SPRING HAS A CERTAIN MAGIC WHICH CAN AD TO THE SWEETNESS OF A COLD WINTER.  LIKE A VACATION WHEN PLANNING CAN BE AS MUCH FUN AS THE ACTUAL TRIP.  SO BUNDLE UP FOR NOW EVERYBODY LAUGH AT THE COLD AND DREAM OF THE CHANGE TO SPRING.

New Website

Posted on: October 26th, 2012 by admin

“I’m looking for a couple of volunteers to help with the new website.”

“Hey, thanks for volunteering and nice to meet you Sandy and Bruiser I’m Tom”

“Ok please look it over carefully this is important stuff.”

“Well we can’t always all agree.”

“Ok ok I guess you are both right…lets do it your way.”

“Are you sure you want that one Sandy cause Bruiser doesn’t look like he agrees.”

“I love you too man.”

“Great job guys…take a break.”
