As I was entering Riverside Square at the entrance between Bloomingdale’s and Rosa Mexicano, three lovely ladies were leaving. I was on the way in to cover a cooking demonstration at Bloomies by Ooh La La. One of the ladies stopped, recognized me and said hello. It was Susan Sherrill, Food Editor for The Record and 201 Magazine. We had met at the opening of Smashburgers at Riverside Square and the next day again at Fairway Market in the Paramus Fashion Center where we were both food judges.

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.

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.

We are in the era of Democratic Extreme Girls -- Big Nanny handmaidens who demand control of your children, your health care, your energy use, your pocketbook and your news. And that's just for starters. If you think President Obama will move to the center after the midterms, think again.
Liberal bloggers are buzzing about the possibility that environmental czar Carol Browner could be appointed White House chief of staff next year.

Our houseguests from Australia had just arrived, when the tufted titmouse began warbling from its perch over our kitchen sink.
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."
