Are you self employed? You seem to be able to manage your time to suit yourself. What field?

Oh MY!!! This thread has some potential after all. So we all meet again; @grace, @Joey Joe, @ Mr.Read More Happy. @Spooner and @Linda Maloney, who is missing?
Joey Joe April 24, 2014 at 05:22 am
@Linda Maloney, @Spooner - Hiya Linda, Hiya Grace, Hiya Spooner... Yeah I was away for most of theRead More winter... and had limited access to "The Patch." When I retired I sold my business to a couple of guys who worked for me - they got a VERY BIG order and asked if I'd come back for a couple of months to help them out - I felt compelled to help them given the fact that they had always been very devoted and dedicated employee's when I owned the business and had to help them out so off I went - now that the order is filled I'm back to retirement again.... FEELS GOOD !!!!!! @Spooner, yes you are totally correct I re-read my post re: Michigan and AAP - and realized that I worded it wrong...my bad as it were...and yes, I do agree that 'FIMF II' and 'Proud' are one in the same. I don't know why 'Proud' disappeared and haven't noted FIMF II posting these last few days/week.... SO, who knows what the deal is.
Linda Maloney April 24, 2014 at 07:13 am
@Joey Joe It certainly is good hearing from you! I saw you on this thread and another I was onRead More earlier, I should have said "HELLO" earlier, but people always yell at me for getting off-topic (I'm starting not to care what people think) it's ok occasionally to stray. I've missed having us all on the same thread like we used to, it was always enjoyable, humorous and quite entertaining! These past few days were the first time in awhile that I saw spooner and Mr. Happy posting in quite some time, I know they don't always see eye to eye, but both are intelligent and have much to offer! I've been on many threads with Grace all winter and I've always enjoyed exchanges with her. I wouldn't worry about FIMF II missing, maybe just taking a break! Perhaps we all will meet again on another thread and really throw "Patch World" upside down? P.S. How long do you think it will be before we gat chastised for being off topic? LOL

This must be a joke. I am a former NYC Prosecutor but I am also very liberal politically. But itRead More seems to me, that this case in the article shows that the New Jersey system of bail is working just fine. Who cares what his family has had to give up trying to post bail. I don't want this guy on the streets. And with these heavy charges, he certainly has a good basis to try and flee if bail is posted.

So it is quite evident, at least so it seems this guy is a worthless piece of crap sexual predator.Read More Lock him up and throw away the key. Why is he being given bail? He is a self proclaimed pedophile, he should never see the light of day again. Why subject some helpless child to this sick pervert?

I'm not a Holmdel resident , but feel this makes no sense to me . Removing rigs and moving themRead More down the block ?
Justmeasking April 12, 2014 at 05:12 pm
Unfortunately there is no easy way to go about a decision like this. I can only hope and pray thatRead More this decision was not "politically" motivated. After 97 years of service to it's community, the fire company has had to have made a positive impact to the residents of the company's response area. Consolidation, duty crews and ultimately (if required) paid firefighters are the way of the future. I am quite sure this decision has fallen hard on the company's members both active and life. Even though i am not a resident of Holmdel i wish to extend heartfelt thanks to the men and women who gave so much of their lives to the fire company and the residents of Holmdel. I hope this works out well for the residents that this decision impacts.

The recently closed firehouse at 35 West Main St is privately owned by HFC1 and is not a townshipRead More building. No tax dollars go into the electric bill, septic, dumpster, maintenance, or other expenses of the building. The town does not even snow plow our parking lot, the volunteers take additional time from their days to clean off the driveway. Our building was built by the members and volunteers of Holmdel. HFC1 is funded through donations, fund faising, and hall rentals. A building DONATED by Vonage to garage a fire engine 100 yards away from the FREE building that the town stored two fire engines in until Thursday only helps two people; Vonage's tax liability, and The Holmdel Township committee in their vision to control every orginazation within the town. Although Vonage may love having a firehouse on their property, the ones who will suffer are the local residents on the south side of Holmdel. Any volunteer orginazation is strong from 6p-6a when the "new" firehouse will be staffed. Volunteer firefighters, because they are not paid, most likely have some type of job during the day. I hope that the residents of Holmdel are aware that this "new" firehouse was a firehouse from the 80's until about 5 years ago when Holmdel "consolidated" and converted the firehouse into an OEM facility, leaving Holmdel with 2 firehouses from the previous 3. Close a firehouse 5 years ago to gain trust from residents in a consolidation only to reopen it as "new" and gain more trust. Although Holmdel Fire Co No 1 is currently closed, we are not gone and hope to someday soon return to active service to serve the residents, supporters, and tax payers of Holmdel.
