Walking—and Eating and Drinking and Shopping—in a Winter Wonderland

Nothing makes me happier on a lazy Sunday than hopping into the car and heading into Lambertville for breakfast and a jaunt around town. The unique shops (personal must-sees include Area Home and Lime Boutique, but that’s a topic for another day’s blog), the art galleries, the antique stores, the chocolate-chip pancakes at Sneddon’s… Before…

Everything Is Illuminated at Stuart

I was coloring with my niece the other day, a full-size outline of her body that I had traced with a giant marker onto three taped-together sheets of a fantastic, giant Crayola Drawing Pad (sidebar: the pad is perfect for all kinds of creating and covers a large enough area so that your little Van…

Simply Extraordinary

Call it urban legend, or Internet lore, but I have heard of some pretty astonishing feats of superhuman parenting. Like the mom who lifted a 1964 Chevy Impala off of her son trapped beneath its wheels; and the father who rescued his daughter from being crushed by a large boulder. (To wit, I recently flung…

The Balanced Guy: On Greenbacks

If you’ve got airline miles or other “points” from your credit card or other loyalty programs, here’s something I recently figured out (I’m slow; sue me): If you want to cash them in for merchandise instead of a ticket to paradise, think carefully before doing so. Earlier this month, I received a letter from our…

Go Fetch

On Saturday night, I ate a number 16 from Hoagie Haven (i.e. a bacon cheesesteak) with Muhammad Ali. Okay, maybe he wasn’t the real Ali (and maybe I did put mayonnaise and ketchup on my sandwich), but he was pretty darn close. I was, in fact, sitting across a table from Evan Parke, the actor…

THE P.S. WEEKLY TOP FIVE

Since I find this time of year only as inspiring as the couch and the television tuned to Project Runway, I thought I would help motivate others with the same malaise with this week’s list. The theme? Action. Doing. Getting-up-and-going. Herewith, I’ve collected a couple of ideas for things you can do that not only…

The Balanced Guy: On Pizza

I have no idea how, in New Jersey, pizza chains like Papa Johns, Domino’s, and Pizza Hut actually make any money, let alone the owners not be run out of town on a rail. It baffles me why anyone would want to eat ketchup-on-cardboard when we’ve got the best freakin’ pizza in the country right…

A Call for Compassion

You know how there are those people in your life who, when you see them, instill in you a sense of calm and clarity within the span of a four-minute conversation? For me, that person is an extraordinary man named Father Tom Hagan. Some of you may already know him as a member of our…
