A gorgeous evening

Ok, so yeah, I played around with the colors of this sunset in photoshop... just a little... but it really was beautiful out! Today was sunny and warm, and January is over. How lovely is THAT? The Severe NJ Weather guy I read (you can find him HERE on Facebook) is confusing a lot of people because he's still calling for possible snow this weekend, basically Sunday. Hmmm... a LATE Sunday Night snowstorm would be a great way to end the Superbowl! I'd love to sleep in on Monday! We shall see what we shall see!

The Quote of the Day

Our country is not the only thing to which we owe our allegiance.  
It is also owed to justice and to humanity.  
Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, 
but in striving that our country shall be righteous 
as well as strong.

Funeral Procession Video

The video of the crowds lining Inman Avenue on Patch.com was beautiful, did you see it? If you didn't, you can see it HERE. It really highlighted what a beautiful turn out we had in town.

The video below, taken by Photographer Sara Schweitzer, shows the funeral procession itself. A slightly different perspective but just as touching.

Watching this video made me think about the person himself... a Hero, a Marine, a Corporal, a local citizen. But these are all somewhat abstract concepts. He was also someone's family, a friend, a son. And the fact is, there are a lot of people who will miss him.

I never had the honor of meeting Cpl. Kevin Reinhard, but my heart breaks for his family.

RIP Marine Corporal Reinhard:
Photos from the Procession

From all accounts, the funeral procession of Marine Corporal Reinhard was moving and tragic, yet inspiring.... Our community really came together to support the Reinhard family.

Westboro Baptist Church, who may or may not have actually protested at this funeral, did not get the attention that they desired. In fact, rather than highlight whatever twisted cause they are trying to promote, I really think that they made more people turn out -- people who didn't want to see them mar this solemn occasion, yet who might not have been there otherwise.

Rest in peace, Corporal Reinhard. The thoughts and prayers of our entire community are with you and with your family.

These photos were taken by Photographer Sara Schweitzer of Iselin. 031

RIP USMC Cpl. Kevin Reinhard

From the Woodbridge Township web site:

Woodbridge Township lost a “Home Town Hero” killed in-the-line of duty in the service of his country.

USMC Cpl. Kevin Joseph Reinhard of Colonia died in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan last week.

The wake for Cpl. Reinhard is scheduled for Sat., Jan. 28 and Sun., Jan. 29 from 2:00 – 4:00 P.M. and 7:00 – 9:00 P.M. at Gosselin Funeral home in Edison. A funeral Mass will be held at St. Agnes Church in Clark at 9:45 A.M. on Mon., Jan. 30 followed by burial at St. Gertrude’s Cemetery on Inman Avenue in Colonia.

Residents wishing to honor Cpl. Reinhard are invited to line both sides of Inman Avenue as he is driven to his final resting place. The funeral procession will move along Inman Ave. beginning at approximately 11:15 A.M. on Mon., Jan. 30.

Please support our Hometown Hero and his family. Join us on Monday morning at 11:15 A.M. on both sides of Inman Avenue from the intersection of Jordan and Amherst Avenue to the cemetery. Let’s show our community pride and appreciation for Cpl. Reinhard’s service to our country.

By now, you've probably heard that the Westboro Baptist Church is planning on protesting the funeral.  This group of people are often in the news for protesting at military funerals.  The Woodbridge Patch did an informative story about them, which you can read HERE.

This is an interesting video about how another town blocked the Westboro Baptist Church protest of one of their fallen heroes:

I have nothing good to say about any group who would try to make a bereaved family feel worse  than they do already.  I know that one of the great things about the United States of America is the freedoms that we enjoy.  The Marines - and all of our Service Men and Women - fight for our rights, including our freedom of speech.  The Westboro Baptist Church is taking advantage of the rights that Cpl. Reinhard fought to preserve. 

I'm certain that Woodbridge's response to that will be at LEAST as good as the town in the video.

Final Exams at JFK start Tomorrow

Final exams for JFK High School students for the end of the first semester, starting Friday, January 27, 2012.

Block 1 and 2 Exams will be given on January 27, 2012
Block 3 and 4 Exams will be given on January 30, 2012
Make-Up Exams will be given on January 31, 2012

All 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade students must take final exams. No one will be exempt from taking a final exam.  
Exams count as 20% of the semester average.

Students who are absent from school during the final exam period will be permitted to take make-up examinations only if the absences are “excused” absences:
One Absence: The student must submit a note from parent/guardian citing the reason for absence from school. If the absence is considered “excused” under the provisions of the attendance policy, the student will be permitted to take a make-up final examination. Failure to submit an acceptable note on the date of return, or if the absence is judged as “unexcused”, will result in a forfeiture of the right to take a make-up exam and the student will receive an “F” for each of the final exams missed because of absence. 
Two Absences: To be considered “excused” for two absences during the final exam period, the student will have to submit a note from a family physician on the date of return to school citing the exact nature of the illness, which resulted in absences from school. Failing to submit a doctor’s note, the student will forfeit the right to take make-up final exams and the student will receive an “F” for each of the final exams missed. 

The make-up date for examinations is January 31, 2012. A student who fails to make up the examination on this date will receive an “F” for the final exam.

Good luck to all on finals!

Happy Chinese New Year-
The Year of the Dragon!

This video was 
really informative. 
How will you be 
the Chinese 
New Year? 

I found a great website HERE, at Chinese Fortune Calendar.com.  It had a lot of interesting info on Chinese Astrology, and it said this:
 "Chinese New Year Day is the first day of the first lunar month of Chinese calendar year. The Chinese new year day is always between January 20 to February 20 of the Gregorian calendar each year.
The preparation to celebrate the Chinese New Year festival begins around 8th day of 12th lunar month. The last day of the Chinese New Year festival is on the 15th day of first lunar month. That means it required about three weeks to prepare the festival and 15 days to celebrate it. 
Traditionally, a Chinese man works outside for living and his wife takes care everything inside home. A month is not long enough for a housewife to clean entire house, put new interior and exterior decoration, prepare new clothes and gifts for all family members, and food for many events. You can image that Chinese New Year festival combines Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year Day together."

JFK Report Cards - the Honeywell Alert

 This is the Honeywell Instant Alert message I received from JFK High School yesterday:  

"First semester report cards will only be available through the Genesis Parent Access Portal. They will not be mailed home. If you have not registered for Parent Access, please visit the school's website or contact the Guidance Department at 732-602-8669."

Wow! I didn't expect that! However, if you haven't been on the Parent Access Portal before, I guess you will be now, huh? Really, it's a smart idea on the schools part. I am sure that they have been told by the "powers that be" in the State of NJ that they must find more ways of cutting back, but legally, they are required to follow certain practices - which are expensive - and they can't cut any of THOSE. They can't cut back on safety, and they can't cut back on the education itself, so they are left with finding other ways of eliminating expense. What's left?

So, if you are a parent of a JFK High School Student, and you haven't signed up for the Genesis Parent Access already, you need to go to the JFK website HERE, and scroll down the page until you find this:
Please click on the link below for the survey/questionnaire that parents need to fill out to register for the Parent Access. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WTSD-ParentAccessRegistration
You'll fill out the survey and you'll get instructions for how to log in. It might take a few days to get your password and stuff, but then, once you have it, you can check your child's grades obsessively twice a day if you feel like it. Yeah, your kid should love that.

A toast to all the Servicemen and Women

A toast to the Firemen and Women... Police... EMT's... 
and other Emergency Services people, serving at home.
And a toast, as well, to the many men and women doing their part
to keep the USA safe and thriving.... 
teachers... road crews... plow drivers... garbage men... 
the middle class that built our country in the first place.
A toast, and a thank you for everything you do.

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

We have learned

Our abundance

neither peace of mind

Happy Friday the 13th

Do you suffer from friggatrishtkaidekaphobia? Is it painful?

Because today is Friday the 13th, and according to the Wikipedia article, "An estimated 17 to 21 million people in the United States suffer from fear of this day. Some people are so paralyzed by fear that they avoid their normal routines in doing business, taking flights or even getting out of bed." On the other hand, not everyone is afraid of Friday the 13th; some cultures are more afraid of Tuesday the 13th.

Oh yeah, that's it! I'm afraid of Friday the 13th, and that's why I can't go to work today; I guess I'll just have to stay in bed all day! Why does it seem that my boss won't be too understanding of that excuse?

Friday the 13th happens too frequently to avoid it. The wikipedia article said that Friday the 13th occurs between one and three times ever year, and this is one of the lucky years with three. The next Friday the 13th occurs in April, and then again in July.

So, if you are afraid of Friday the 13th, here are some other superstitions you might want to consider:
You can break a bad luck spell by turning seven times in a clockwise circle
Garlic protects from evil spirits and vampires
Entering a frog into the house brings good luck
Crossing your fingers helps to avoid bad luck and helps a wish come true
Clothes worn inside out will bring good luck
Sleeping on un-ironed sheets (Do you ever iron YOUR sheets?)

Stephen Colbert: Presidential Candidate?

I love watching Jon Stewart and  Stephen Colbert on Comedy Central every night.  I'm definitely tuning in tonight, are you?

Because in an article on the Washington Post, which you can read here,

"Stephen Colbert transfers super PAC to Jon Stewart, teases entry to Republican primary in South Carolina." 

HMMM. Can Stephen Colbert run for president?  And... if he runs... can he win?  And... if he wins... can he lead?  Can he do any worse - or any better - than any of these other people?

Politico.com said that Stephen Colbert's announcement was: “I am proud to announce that I am forming an exploratory committee to lay the groundwork for my possible candidacy for president of the United States of America of South Carolina,” Colbert said during the Thursday evening show, several hours before airtime on Comedy Central."

Moving Again

Moving Again

Guest written by our friend Mason Abbott

When we found out we were moving my first thought was that we were going to be so far away from family. My second thought was how much it was going to cost to hire movers and look into new Internet Packages Deals but that went away when I thought about how tough it was going to be to spend any kind of time with my family from now on. My mom was going to be a plane ride away which was something I’d never had to deal with before! I love my mother and she’s my best friend, too, so talking to her every day on the phone was already a given. Before we moved though she was only about 30 minutes away by car and now she’s going to be about 8 hours – that’s just not feasible for me and my family. I really miss mom but I’m trying to adjust and remember that this move isn’t just for me it’s for my whole family and it’s best for the lot of us.

Happy New Day!

Are you tired of seeing pictures of sunrises and sunsets on here? I love to take photos of the sky. On the other hand, I'm pretty tired of seeing the sun rise - I much prefer sleeping in.

But here we are, another new day. We should celebrate a new day as much as we celebrate a new year.

And I definitely would celebrate it, if only it didn't start so early.

The Quote of the Day

There is no moment like the present.  
The man who will not execute his resolutions

they will be dissipated, lost, and perish

or sunk in the slough of indolence.
