Johns Deli in Ship Bottom posted on September 25, 2008
I stopped on Tuesday to pick up a sandwich at Johns on the Blvd in Ship Bottom. They're located where the old Hands store used to be. I didn't go at all this summer, so this was a first visit. What is up with this place? Only one other customer came in. They had tuna salad out in a display case that was absolutely brown and crusty...seriously I thought maybe it was tuna noodle casserole. But no, it was just very very old. Next to the tuna salad was the most disgusting looking chicken salad; dried up and crusty with globs of very old mayo. I'm not exaggerating when I say these items must be months old. I totally cannot believe they would serve this rancid food to customers and think it was ok. Where is the board of health when you need them?
Do yourself a favor if you go in there. Only get cold cuts that are cut to order. At least they have to be fresh.

Ship Bottom Irish Festival signs posted on September 11, 2008
Am I the only one that thinks it's high time that whoever put on the Ship Bottom Irish festival last weekend removes their D**M signs from the roadways!!! T I just came over the bridge and there are still a half-dozen on Rt 72! I get really tired of people putting up signs and then expecting someone else to take them down. The ones that really tick me off are the Golden Fish Sale signs that pop up every year thinking they can avoid the business signage regulations. I shortcut the problem with these guys and take them all down as soon as they appear. The other bad one is the teacher's union putting up signs prompting us all to vote YES on the budget so they get their raises. People - have a little courtesy and pick up your trash. It's no different than littering!
Sorry for the rant, I'll step down from my soap box now.

Dogs posted on September 1, 2008
We recently rented in Beach Haven Gardens, 29th St. oceanside. The folks next door had two large pit bull/bull dog type dogs they kept in a pen in the backyard. These are apparently the owners dogs, the owners living on second floor. A week or so ago, the owners dogs attacked the first floor tenants dog, and apparently the renters had to leave with a very injured dog. It was a nasty commotion, with the owners having trouble subduing their dogs. My question is, is it irresposible to keep dogs like this in the backyard when you are renting your first floor to families with kids/pets? I'm thinking they are not people I would like to rent from.

Eatery business practice posted on August 12, 2008
Left the beach early on a weekday to catch the late end of an early bird special at a known island family eatery for a good meal with 3 others. Entered the eatery and saw that only 40% of the tables were taken but was told the wait would be a while because all the scattered empty tables were waiting on different people who had called in reservations. Obviously were were dissapointed in the decision by the host to dis us for people who were not even there. Is this bad business practice and would anyone else be annoyed by this situation?

Well, its that time again. We were harassed by folks, once again, in our BHG home last night because our party was "too loud". Does anyone else have this problem and if so do you have any appropriate "snappy" comebacks for people who don't know how to have fun?

Be careful driving in Beach Haven! posted on May 24, 2008
Witnessed TWO separate tickets being issued today by Beach Haven police. The dastardly offense? These two drivers turned left, in the middle of the block, to reach an empty parking space on the other side of the street. This crosses the solid double lines and is illegal. The police are out in force!

Ocean County taxes - unbelievable posted on March 17, 2008
Can you believe the politicians in this county? They raise the County budget 4.35% ($14.9 million) and then take credit for a tax DECREASE! Keep in mind this is all possible because their rateables are based on data a couple of years old. Just wait until the new assessments come in. Towns aren't allowed to raise more than 2.5% (up to 3.5 by resolution) and yet the county just jumps on up 4.35% and claims they're doing right by us.
TOMS RIVER — A Wednesday public hearing is planned on Ocean County's $359 million 2008 budget, up $14.9 million, or 4.35 percent, which brings with it a fraction-of-a-penny cut in the county tax rate.
"People are paying more at the pump. Groceries are going up, but this will not increase the county tax rate," said Freeholder Director Joseph H. Vicari.
Taxpayers will pay 77 percent of the cost of county government, while miscellaneous revenues account for 13 percent; surplus, 7 percent; and other state and federal aid, 2.75 percent.
The tax share of the proposed spending package is $276 million, an increase of 4.9 percent, or $13 million more than last year."

Forum Identity Theft posted on March 9, 2008
Hmmm. Well, I suppose imitation is a form of flattery, but I must say I don't appreciate someone using my forum name to reply to the March 7 post about the Holiday Snack Bar. The "Crankypants"who posted a reply to that post on March 9th is not me...I am "Cranky Pants" - two words, both capitalized. Ethical issues aside, "Crankypant's" use of my name to post an endorsement of the Holiday Snack Bar is not necessarily reflective of my opinion...and therefore is fradulent and potentially illegal. And, such identity theft unfortunately can lead to doubt about the veracity or helpfulness about anyone else's posts - can anyone really have confidence in any reply we see here in light of this nefarious bounder's name thieving? Love to Mom, who believes that her life is her own - not someone else's...

Just wondering... posted on August 21, 2007
Why do some folks here take such pleasure in sniping at others on this board? Is it the safety of anonymity? Maybe it feels good to take a swipe at some stranger - I know I've done it, even though I knew it wasn't nice. I know that on the real LBI I feel like I am among friends, even on an island of strangers. I do not feel that way AT ALL on this board. It seems rare here to find a thread without some sort of grouchy reply. It's kind of a shame.

Accommodations posted on July 12, 2007
Don't mean to second guess you Answer Man, but when you go on Tripadvisors.com hotels are not listed, you type in the name of the hotel you are interested in and press search. I did that with the Engleside and received glowing reviews. Some places might have only one response, none or many, and some are old, but I can get a general idea from the feel of those letters if I want to go there. They do not do restaurants. Yes, people can add their own, although the management says that they can catch that and yes, I guess competitors can also try to "fry" you but if you are half way intelligent I think yu can see through that. I would never travel to a hotel/motel, espeically if not a chain, without first doing this. It has always served me well. I met a lady in 7-11 last week who was nearly in tears over where she was staying; she should have checked first.
