LOCAL SPOTLIGHT: ADT Custom Home

ADT Custom Home Services

For Dan DeMartin life as usual includes the juggling act we all know so well. Life, family, career. He starts each day one pant leg at a time. He's real, regular, honest and compassionate. His business is the security of your home . The stuff that keeps you up at night, or allows you to sleep like a baby. What keeps you up? Is your family safe from break ins, burglary, heaven forbid a fire? You can drive yourself mad with all the what if's. If you don't consider them, you actually do have reasons to worry. How Dan explains what he does is. " I protect bad things from happening to good people" 

You certainly can't know when your home is at risk for a burglary or a fire, can you? After all it's not like a car, when you hit a certain mileage you're due for an oil change. Can it be that easy? Most people hear the words security system and think it's not for them  because "that's too expensive." The truth of the matter is that the investment is minimal especially when you consider the cost of replacing your valuables, or even your home.

LOCAL SPOTLIGHt: ROAMING ACRES  lafayette, NJ

Roaming Acres

If you are a native to Sussex county, you are not a stranger to back roads and wildlife sightings. What might throw you for a double take is when driving down Big Spring Road in Lafayette.  You see a herd of Ostrich in a not so distance field, but then, wait for it, are there really Bison out there too? This is New Jersey, not Omaha! Yes, we are in the garden state with the cows, the farms with silos are landmarks around her.  But Ostrich and Bison and Berkshire pork, Oh my.

Cravin Thai Hamburg, NJ LOCAL SPOTLIGHT

CRAVIN THAI

Ed and Toula Reinle have a lot on their plates...literally. It’s been eight years since they opened their doors to

Cravin Thai on Main Street in Hamburg.

Diners have expressed that their exterior is deceiving, (A brick faced store front, that was at one time

a bank).  What they get when they enter is an experience that has them wanting to come back.

The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, the dining area relaxed and quaint, the signature cocktails are worth the trip alone (Try the “Dirty Apartment” or “Ginny Hendricks”)  and you haven’t even eaten anything YET! The Drunken Noodles are amazing, and if you can take it, ask for spicy- the chef is not afraid to spice it up if that’s what you're cravin'. The duck, is to “die for!.” Authentic flavors of Thailand that you would never expect here in Hamburg, NJ

If you are looking for something so not typical of Thai cuisine they have amazing ribs and delicious burgers. They want everyone to enjoy their experience when they come and of course the food. Local patrons visit regularly, some, multiple times a week. Regular diners from even as far as PA and Manhattan.

From Piper's Desk:  Happy July 4th!!!!

Hi Everyone and Happy 4th of July!!!!  I hope you all have been enjoying happy celebrations with your family and friends!!!!  It's strange to have the holiday land right in the middle of the week this year but we've been enjoying it nonetheless.  Summer is just flying by with so many fun times!  One of my very favorite things we've done so far this year is a big trip to Folly Beach in South Carolina (very near to Charleston).  The beaches there are so very awesome and dog friendly.  I was only banned from the beach from 10:00 AM through to 6:00 PM every day, which worked out perfectly because even though it was only the first week of June when we were there, it was hot enough that my parents had to keep me tucked in the shade during the midday heat.  I really just had the best time ever running on the beaches there and my enthusiasm earned me quite a few admiring comments from passersby.  Some people asked how long I could keep running up and down the beach to catch my ball; my Mom and Dad were quick to let them know that I could quite possibly keep going forever if I was allowed.  :)

From Piper's Desk: Celebrating Spring with Runs, Pool-time and Ice Cream

Hi Everyone!!!!  I'm so sorry I missed catching up with you in April!!!!  To be honest, I haven't been up to much that's different from what I'm up to most of the time.  I've been running a lot more now that the trails are all clear of snow, although my parents have to be careful now that it's so much warmer so that I don't overheat.  While the cold doesn't bother me at all, I am really very sensitive to heat so we run early and for much shorter distances than we would in cooler temperatures.   Playtime is still my favorite time of the day but that has also been affected by the heat.  Dad often likes to tease me by saying I'm "laying down on the job" because I take quite a few breaks to catch my breath (I'd like to see how he fared if he played as hard as I do!!!!).  Mom and Dad got me a super awesome pool that helps me keep up to my usual playtime quota.  My pool is actually a stock tank from Tractor Supply because after I destroyed my pool from last year, my parents figured out that I needed something that would hold up better to my wild and rough playtime antics.  The Tuff Stuff stock tanks are absolutely perfect as pet pools.  They come in different sizes and they're obviously made to withstand the outside elements.  They are indeed "tough" because even a rough houser such as myself cannot make a dent in these tanks.  I really love to splash around in the pool on warm days.
