Carnival of the New Jersey Bloggers #2

This is our second Carnival of the New Jersey bloggers. We think you’ll find an eclectic mix of blogs and subjects, but all with one thing in common, we all call Jersey home. All New Jersey bloggers are welcome to submit links for next Sunday’s Carnival, just send us an email with a link to the post you’d like us to include.

Mary, blogging on Mary's Lame Attempt at Fame, has graduated from law school and has a nice picture posted of herself decked out in her cap and gown. Congratulations Mary! Somehow we missed this: PDC Ryan also graduated on Friday from Seton Hall Law School along with Mary. Good going guys!

Liz over at the new blog, My New Jersey says: “there's nothing like sitting around a patio, or on the beach, or on a deck enjoying a hot dog or two or three, thrown on a plate heaping with potato salad, coleslaw and baked beans, washing it all down with a good beer in a fresh from the freezer mug. m-m-mm-mmmm-mm.”

Lizzie at This Full House is hosting a blog party in honor of her 41st birthday. And in honor of her twin brother -- SSGKat -- for each comment she receives through Monday -- Memorial Day -- she will donate $1 to The Fallen Patriot Fund to help families of U.S. military personnel who were killed or seriously injured during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Suzette has been waiting all year for the month of May. Cripes Suzette, we can understand why; take a look at the rhododendrons blooming in her yard. Just as we were finalizing this week’s carnival post, we received an email from Suzette pointing out that we have been concentrating on her blog’s Garden State category and have overlooked her other – Dress Boutique. Her latest post in this category is MOB, but to truly appreciate dress boutique blogging, we recommend you click on this link, scroll to the bottom of the page and start at the beginning of Suzette’s project.

Gigglechick provides the definitions of the terms benny and shoobie. The author of My Life as a Rabid Blog offers a lesson learned on the necessity of sun screen. The Barista of Bloomfield Avenue always gives us the impression that Montclair is a great place to live. Sluggo had a good time at Yankee Stadium, despite the security measures.

Kate over at Kate Spot is the mother of two girls, ages 5 and 6. Reading her blog, we always thought she seemed like such a nice person. Imagine our shock when we read this: “We were even able to place the girls in a holding cell. Heh - they didn't like that too much, especially when the door was closed with a rather loud sounding "CLANG".” This is what happens when you take a quote out of context.

Shamrocket took her kids to see Velvet Revolver at the NOT-The-PNC Bank Arts Center and tells us: “other than the puking, and nearly exposing the kids to a contact high, it was cold, damp, and the sound system at the Arts Center leaves much to be desired, but in all the event was worth it.” Now that’s who we’d call a cool mom.

Tim Hill at the Atlantic Higland Muse says: “Viva La Revolution! - The SeaStreak boycott and email campaign worked.” Way to go Tim. PDC Ryan from, If this is paradise, I wish I had a lawn-mower, is giving up his AOL account, because without the people, without the communities... there is no AOL. Is blogging taking its place?

Tami, the One True, writes of impossible ideals and yet she remains optimistic that the “America of today is headed towards an inclusiveness that has never before been dreamed of. Or, at least, we were headed there.”

Tiger Hawk writes about the talk Paul Krugman gave this past week at Princeton University and he does a good job of unraveling the NYT columnist/ professor’s purported objectivity.

Fausta, the author of Bad Hair Blog writes on the controversy over embryonic stem cell research and weighs in on the question of government committing tax dollars to the stem cell industry.

NJ Conservative discusses the direct election of U.S .Senators and the loss of state’s rights. Ken Adams has joined the discussion and both guys seem to have come to the conclusion that the 17th amendment was not a very good idea.

DynamoBuzz has a new blue blog design, very easy on the eyes. Roberto directs us to a new blog, Vincelli For Governor. The author begins his first ever blog entry with this: “Today, I decided to throw my hat in the rinks. My father always told me – if you want something done right, kick a loser’s ass.

Roberto also highlights Jon Corzine’s property tax plan as explained in the NY Times: (1) Extend the Homestead rebate program and (2) Extend the NJ Saver rebate program. Corzine’s position isn’t going to make Sharon at The Center of New Jersey Life happy; she supports taxpayers foregoing property tax rebates so the money can be sent directly to schools. The Proprietor at Coffee Grounds writes on the reprieve that wasn't; apparently the folks in Trenton are with Sharon and are bucking Corzine.

Mr. Snitch gives us the low down on the politics of Hoboken and writes: “Contempt is directed not only at their political opponent, but at anyone not on their side of their dividing line.” Perhaps this explains Scott at Poetic Leanings referring to our blog as a web (site) of lies. Ah, come on Scott, can’t we agree that we just disagree and become friends? If not, Beck over at INCITE, has our back.

We hope you have a great Memorial Day and if you have some time, check out our posts:

Thank you for getting the word out and I would like to extend an invitation to everyone in this big, beautiful blogosphere to join me in putting the "remember" back into Memorial Day!

At 4:33 PM, Blogger PDC Ryan said...

Another great round-up! Thanks for getting the word out about NJ's bloggers (how do you find everyone, anyway?)

At 6:26 PM, Blogger Enlighten said...

Ryan, One NJ blog leads to another, in turn leads to another. We are always on the lookout. Some we stumble upon and some find us.

Glad you like the Carnival, not sure many readers or bloggers really care.

Oh well, we tried.

I care! Don't judge interest by last week (your intial effort) or this week (sunny holdiay weekend) either.

The Tax Return Crack-Up<3>
Granted, there are usuallyMicrosoft Office 2010write-ups when presidential contenders make their tax returns available, but the coverage falls far short of the Office 2010
full court press (pardon the pun) that the Clintons have received. What's Microsoft Office 2007different now?Office 2007One possibility is that most upper middle class Democrats, and therefore most Microsoft OfficeOffice 2007 keyeditors and reporters of our nation's big papers as well as Office 2007 downloadtelevision producers, are Obama supporters who think that Hillary should hurry up Office 2007 Professionaland drop out of the race already.Microsoft outlook
