A special thank you to all those who helped fill the Council Chamber for the Paramus Zoning Board of Adjustment hearing last week (10/14) in reference to the "Enchantment at Paramus" application. What appears to be the last meeting pertaining to this application will take place next week. It is important that we show up in force once again to voice our opposition and speak out against this proposed oversized, high-density development. Those in attendance will be allowed to speak prior to the Board voting. We are hoping that the Zoning Board does not approve any variances related to this project and that this application is DENIED on local, county, and state levels. Please spread the word and join us so we can speak out together and say NO!! The hearing will take place at 7:30 PM on Thursday, October 28th inside Paramus Borough Hall.

Q: I need an office at home that's presentable for my fashion clients to meet in from time to time. With my daughter getting married next month, I am planning to take over her bedroom, but I need some ideas on how to make it look really smart.
A: Unlike most places of business, home offices can be as personal as the individual who works — and lives — there. Not to say that you don't also need to be businesslike, especially as you'll be entertaining clients there.
Ever since Lana Turner wore the tight blue pullover in the 1937 movie "They Won't Forget," sweater girls have created a fashion sensation. Every season, designers reinvent this sexy basic that actually got its beginnings in the late 1800s in lowly horse stables when trainers used "sweater" blankets to make horses perspire — just a little fashion trivia for you! And who can forget the "twinset" cardigans introduced by none other than that famous French designer in the 1930s, Coco Chanel.

The family of six fell silent. "What was that?" Greg asked.
I pointed to our Audubon singing bird clock on the wall. "A different bird every hour, on the hour," I chirped.
Greg threw back his head and laughed. "Kids, welcome to America."

As a Lee Child/Jack Reacher fan, I devoured the entire book in record time. Once again, Jack Reacher finds himself in a remote area which has secret problems. Rather than move on, he tackles the problem and in true Child format, crunches and vanquishes the oppressors. As always, there is a lot of burning and fires taking place. The reader is kept in suspense until the very end!
You know how you start a new book and know instinctively that this is a book to enjoy. Huck is one of those books. Not only is it a pet lover’s book, but it deals locally with the towns of Wyckoff. Allendale, Ramsey and Mahwah. It deals with the love of a puppy by a little boy and his family and how that toy poodle affected their lives; how it helped in the recovery of cancer.
