Carnival of New Jersey Bloggers XLIV
Hello, and welcome one and all to the Carnival of the New Jersey Bloggers! We're glad you're here reading with us, as spring weather teases us outside. Let's see what's going on in the blogosphere in Our Fair State this week.
Cliches begin arguments, they don’t settle them, but the make for a bitter cup of coffee. The art of war is of vital importance to the State, and to our own checkbooks. "This is a tale of innocence and innocence lost, of friendship sometimes found in unexpected places, of ignorance about race and the true measure of a man or a woman" - and a most worthy read. Low battery beep? Must be about 3 AM. No Blooker prize, but some good attention. Ambiance, good beer, corned beef, cabbage- get ready to jig! "If you try another stunt like that again, I will destroy you," said the band director to one player who was only pretending to be a trumpeter. Check out the readings now that the wedding has happened. What to do when it's Lent but you want gut-busting pork products? WWGAD (what would the Green Arrow do?) Sometimes foreign-born stars get lost in translation. We could never forget some of these orphan brands- even if we might want to, eventually. What blew up in the laundry? Maybe you just shouldn't call- but, when tragedy strikes, make a casserole. Have some faith, and remember we all start out as artists. We never can forget the wedding from hell.
Should Gov. Corzine completely dismantle the SCC, cut services or raise taxes? Or should we consider consolidations, even if we have to be dragged to it kicking and screaming? There appears to be some disagreement on the State Business Tax Climate. Let's talk about Rich Sexton. The carnival's beloved Tillie needs a new home. They may call it progress, but it's the end of the Wildwood as we remember it. Don't forget Ocean Grove Wellness Weekend!
In the Headlines
Stories for sale- anyone buying? How many chances do you get when you let opportunities slide by? Sometimes, they may be squandered. Big Love, gay marriage, and cuckolds- oh my! Sometimes, you just wonder what the world is thinking. What journalists should be asking about hate crime legislation. We hear about tax-and-spend, how about borrow-and-spend? We can hear about Tony Blair, and read about President Sirleaf of Liberia.
Fun and Beauty
Remembering Shadow. Walking, or maybe dancing- taking that "good stretch of the legs." Check out the new DJ on Mango Radio. Experience the sunset of Cape May in March. I, personally, think it's all good. On St. Patrick's day, a story of tradition and heritage, and a story of the pitter-patter of little feet.
--Now that we've wrapped up Carnival 44, have you read the wrap-up for Carnival 43?--
Next week the carnival travels to The Opinion Mill. If you enjoyed reading the carnival, think about how much fun you'll have hosting! Prime weekends are available in later spring and summer, so check out the above link- just click on Tillie- and follow the instructions to sign up.
