A Few Favorite Links
is my personal links collection - not a link exchange page. I have
personally chosen to add these links to a few of my favorite people and
places on the net!
& Personal Links:
My Mom's church in Bayville, New
Jersey. Aside from being the world's greatest Mom, she is also very involved in the
newest addition to the Presbyterian Church. Every month for many
years, she and my Dad organized and
participated in a monthly AIDS dinner in Central New Jersey. Through donations of
time, money and food, she and others involved with the church provided a home cooked meal
to some very thankful people.
The Web Guide and Directory for Collectors:
Berkeley Sweet Shops...The Home of
"Fine Quality" Chocolates and Candies! Maintaining High Standards Since
"1910"! Try their delicious Salt Water Taffy or Creamy Fudge! Berkeley Sweet
Shops...On the Boardwalk in Seaside Heights, New Jersey! 1-800-645-3521 This is a personal
favorite since I grew up along the NJ Shore in the 70s and 80s. I spent many a
night with friends on the boardwalk in Seaside Heights
Trikkx Nightclub, Downtown
St. Paul, Minnesota (My Employer Between 1995 and 2000, and from 2004 til
She Closed in January 2007):
Playhouse, Vermont; Summer Theater at its' best - the players give
Broadway-style performances for little or no pay:
Informative Places (Including History):
The Asbury Park Press - get all
the news from the New Jersey Shore! Not only the newspaper from
(near) my hometown, but also the newspaper that my Dad worked for until retirement
- although that was when it was still a SMALL HOMETOWN paper (not part of
the monster corporation Gannett). As a
Court Reporter, he covered many of the states most intriguing stories, including the
murder trial of the wealthy family from Toms River and the horrible fire at Great
Adventure Amusement Park that killed several people in the Haunted Mansion (now a
"garden area" at the amusement park).
Twin Cities Public Television KTCA
Channel 2 / KTCI Channel 17 - this is a direct link to their LOST TWIN CITIES feature -
marvelous! From here, you can connect to their home page. Become a
Link to the Prints &
Photographs section at the Library of Congress web site:
The Ramsey County Historical
The National Highway Safety
Administration. Find out the recall history of YOUR CAR!
The Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety. This is a cool site where you can see how YOUR CAR scored on the
independent crash tests. This is the 40 MPH "offset crash test" often used on
Fascinating information on the
construction of Hoover (Boulder) Dam on the Colorado River in the early 1930s. This
incredible story was the basis for a program on the PBS series, "American
Experience", probably one of the finest programs on television.
& Universities I Have Attended:
Johnson & Wales University,
Providence RI...it was only a "College" when I attended from 1984-1986!
Widener University, Philadelphia
PA. I actually attended the Brandywine Campus in Wilmington Delaware and the main site is
actually in Chester, PA, a few miles south of Philadelphia.
Real Estate Agents:
Why are they the
Doug spent the better part of a full day of
his busy schedule to plan
and see several homes and condos during my 2004 summer of exploration (more
info here). He knew he only had a 1 in 3 chance that I
would choose their market, but took the time anyhow. Other agents I contacted either did not contact me back,
or left things "open" advising me to contact them when I was in the area to
buy, or after I choose a location. So, kudos to the following
for your commitment to professionalism.
Corinne was my personal agent when I was
selling my Minnesota Condo in 2013 / 2014. She was beyond
professional, fair and most importantly honest and treated me with respect!
If you're looking to buy or sell in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, contact
