Spacecraft lands on Comet

No news about the lying to Americans to get Obamacare passed, but plenty of news about landing a spacecraft on a comet 4 billion miles away.

They're acting like WE did it. No, the Europeans did it. OUR Space program was ended a couple of years ago by our president? Remember he said "You didn't build that, someone else did? He wasn't talking about this then, but it still works. The media is acting like we had something to do with it. I'm not going to give the story, I'm sure you already saw it in the 'news' already, I'm just posting this to show you how the media is spoon feeding you news.

The story about Jonathan Gruber, the mastermind architect of Obamacare, lying to Americans just to get Obamacare passed should be on every news source in the country, but it's not. It is worse than Watergate and not a word in the past few days. Get used to it people, this is the new America where media tells you what they want you to see.

Get your Flu shots

The vaccine is fast and safe and will stop you from the dangers of the flu.

Why Seniors - and Everyone Else - Should Get A Flu Shot

Flu season is here -- again! And with it all the usual rationales for getting or not getting a flu shot. They range from, "I'm so healthy, I never get sick;" "I got one last year, why should I get another;" "I'm allergic to the shot;" "I got the flu anyway." Aand on and on. These are just some of the excuses that people give to rationalize not getting a flu shot. To counter this, here are five reasons why you should get one. Read rest of story HERE.

2014 Cafe Remy Loses Liquor license

Cafe Reme on 3rd Avenue between 71st street and 72nd street, opposite Dunkin Donuts did not get their license renewed. The sign was changed to The Ridge and an attempt to transfer the license to them was blocked due to numerous violations and other issues. Maybe they'll reopen as a restaurant, but I don't know how well that would work unless they got a liquor license. We shall see in the next few months. Stay tuned.

Killarney Pub has closed

After almost 18 years, it has closed. Owners said influx of Muslims, who do not drink, has caused business to fall over the years. A local jeweler bought the building and was not sure what he would build there, perhaps a medical building. There a lot of vacant stores in Bay Ridge last few years. Many businesses open but close shortly because of lack of business.

I stopped by one day while Paddy Finn was cleaning out the place and spoke with him for a few minutes. He said he might check around and reopen again, but I think he wants to take a break for a while. Good luck, Paddy, whatever you do.

BJs Wholesale opens in Bensonhurst

It's on Shore Parkway right before the Nellie Bly amusement park. I went there the other day because I got a 'pass' in the mail. I didn't read the small print that says you have to pay an extra 5% unless you get a membership. When you do the 5% comes off. I'm pretty sure you can do that anytime without needing a free one day 'pass.'

It is huge, much bigger than the ones I've been to. It was nice and clean but it was only open a week when I got there. Not crowded at all, plenty of room to walk around. I was going to get a membership but the lines were ridiculous. You would think that being new to the neighorhood, they would have a better system of registering new members. I didn't bother and just paid the extra 5%, because I didn't have that much anyway.

One thing that will definitely keep me away from there during busy hours is the parking lot situation. The geniuses have made the ONLY exit so it goes across the pedestrian crossways. As empty as it was, there was a line to leave the damn place because the pedestrians wouldn't let the cars past. These are the same people who are walking to or from their cars and in a few minutes will be honking for people to get out of their way. Really dumb planning. I can see a huge mess during the holidays when it gets very busy (without me for sure).

I may still join, but will only go there real early in the moroning as soon as they open. Don't know why you can't just join online or at the least print out an application so you can fill it out before going to the store, drop it off and then pick up the membership while you're shopping. They could take your pick when you drop it off.

New recycling rules in Bay Ridge.

I'm talking about those new little brown containers that were given to residents. They're too small for leaves. I fill at least a couple of those huge bags with leaves, so that won't fit. I keep my household garbage in a triple garbage bag so I don't need it for that. I don't see many of them put out and when the G-Men come by to pick them up, they usually go down my street in just a couple of minutes. I just don't think these are going to take off, people are used to the way they do it now.
