You know... the quarter thing is actually a pretty interesting idea to not leave carts in the lot.

There is always a reason for a price-increase - I can't remember ever reading about a reason for aRead More price-decrease. It's possible no one else has noticed this. Isn't capitalism wonderful?

It might as well be Toronto. I'm sure they have a huge fan base in Brooklyn.

Bill Torreys' Islanders success plan: finish dead last for four or five years, receive a bunch ofRead More low draft picks (who we don't have pay much money to), plug in some veteran role players (who we don't have to pay much money to)and win Stanley Cups until the team either gets old or expensive, then sell off the pieces. Cheap franchise right from the start, nothing magical about those teams. They were stacked with low draft picks, which no longer can work due to the increased number of teams diluting the draft. How well has that worked in the 30 years since?

JACK, The Church IS NOT these human FRAUDS and PHONIES, who hold daily and weekly, POLITICALRead More INDOCTRINATION SESSIONS, AND kowtow to whatever alien political ideology, that is popular, and that they embrace. It is my understanding that ALL religions suffer, to some varying degree, from these FRAUDS. So you have to HOLD YOUR NOSE AND IGNORE THEM, and have enough Faith, that THESE TYPES, are the social flotsam, that is 'PASSING THROUGH', any Society's 'digestive system'...and are anomalies, NOT THE RULE...AND that any 'influence' they have, is temporary...LIKE A MIGRAINE...or a stomach virus !

Jack, I am not anti-Catholic. Humans have done harm to the Church(priests, bishops, etc). I donateRead More regularly and directly to the Parish outreach, which helps people all over the Island. I was not referring to regular maintenance in my previous post. They raised money during the recession to install ceramic, marble, and oak in a church that was 20 years old. I feel that it was an unnecessary burden for the parishioners whose generosity is always exploited. And Jack, the main reason for lower contributions is lower attendance at Mass, and there are many reasons for that.
Jack March 19, 2014 at 07:17 pm
Brookhaven Why don't you criticize all religions like you do the Church. Jump on that bandwagon.Read More Bottom line the Church has so much good for the world and I'm not going to let some earthly men detract me from enjoying being a Catholic and attending Mass. I feel very lucky to be Catholic. The combination of all other religions combined do not come near what the Cathokic Charities has done for those in need. If they make a few mistakes, so be it. Why don't you find yourself another religion if you care about God at all. I think you will be disappointed. Robert, I appreciate your post an agree with you. I think things are cyclical and we have a society an culture now that belittle religion and especially the Church. I enjoy the extra room in the pews and look forward to seeing better days with more attendees. I also look forward to a more conservative government that will support faith based operations and the departure of this leaderless government we have now.

Awesome fried ice cream

So sorry to hear this rumor confirmed. We've enjoyed many wonderful meals there, most recently withRead More Asian friends who loved it. The service was always warm and friendly and the food invariably fresh and delicious. We even had Lawan cater a party at our home, and again, the food was terrific.

Oh stop. What in the WORLD do you care what goes on in a place when you or your loved ones aren'tRead More present? As long as it was cleaned up afterwards (and I believe I read they sanitized it TWICE to appease you lunatics). Question: Do you ever stay in a hotel? Do you really want to know what happened there in the past? Does it really matter as long as you know the hotel cleaned up the room? I guess you can't go on public transportation or touch a doorknob either? People are getting all worked up for no reason at all. Would I ever go to a party like that? Probably not. But I mean really...live and let live.

Francis Soyer: Point of information if you will. When one is going to install the new LED light bulbRead More which would be the preferred choice? The MiracleLED Un-Edison 60W Equivalent Frost or the Samsung A19 60-Watt Warm White. From the knowlege you demonstrated above I thought I would ask an expert.
Francis Soyer January 30, 2014 at 10:27 am
Vincent - Honestly I'm not too familiar with either product. Neither is an "industryRead More standard" name brand. Samsung is obviously know for their electronics, I don't know if they are actually manufacturing their LED's or using somebody else's, but Samsung generally has good products. MiracleLED, unknown??? However I did a quick search on both. Samsung: 10.8 watts, 810 lumens, 27,000k, 15,000 hrs, 130 degree beam angle. MiracleLED: 5 watts, 500 lumens, 27,000k, 30,000 hrs, they claim "360 degree lighting" but do not list an actual beam angle, but it would certainly be much greater then the 130 on the Samsung. I would look at application first. Can you see the bulb in the fixture you are putting it in? If so the Samsung's heat sink is very visible and if it were in a glass fixture that I could clearly see the bulb I wouldn't want to see the Samsung bulb, I would pick the MiracleLED even though just by first appearance the Samsung looks like it is made better. I think the only application I would use the Samsung would be in a can light as the light output is more directional especially if I needed more light as the Samsung puts out 60% more light. Both seem to be priced at about $16 each. The more recognized LED name brands are Cree & Nochia, also, GE, Phillips & Sylvania make them as well. I like the "Cree 60W equivalent soft white (2700K) A19 dimmable LED light bulb", sold at Home Depot & Lowes.
