A Bucket Plan to Go With Your Bucket List

The baby boomers have re-defined everything they’ve touched, from music to marriage to parenting and, more lately, to what “old” means—60 is the new 50! Longer, healthier living, however, can put greater stress on the sustainability of retirement assets.

There is no easy answer to this challenge, but let’s begin by discussing one idea—a bucket approach to ...

Nine Facts About Retirement

Tip: Nearly 70% of workers expect to work for pay in retirement, but only 26% of retirees actually have done so.

Retirement can have many meanings. For some, it will be a time to travel and spend time with family members. For others, it will be a time to start a new business or begin a charitable endeavor. Regardless of what approach ...

The first goal we’ll consider is a dream vacation – one lasting a couple of weeks or more, possibly to an exotic ...

Do You Need New Tires Right Now?

There are numerous indicators that mean it's time to buy new tires for your vehicle. However, attempting to figure out the precise time span for how long your tires last is nearly impossible.

Many elements factor into the longevity of a tire including weather, the tire's model and type, driving routines, how the driver maintains the tire and the area's road habitat.

What we ...

Some Thoughts on ‘Mindful’ Motoring

Maybe it’s because I’m a “car guy.” Or maybe it’s just because I’ve been around a while.

Whatever the reason, I notice a lot of things drivers do, or don’t do, that make me concerned.

These days, there’s a lot of talk about “mindfulness” and I can think of few activities that benefit as much from being mindful as does driving. Take ...

Foxes Herald Nature’s Resurgence in Suburban New Jersey

For most of my life the only time I saw a red fox it was probably a raccoon. They have those same glow-in-the-headlights silvery eyes.

But a few years ago, I began to see a once-rare piece of roadkill with greater frequency. No matter how flattened the rest of the fox was, it’s bushy-tail would blow around in the highway draft of cars and trucks as they raced past.

I assumed the ...

A Failsafe in a World of Falling Safes

I subscribe to the “Falling Safe” philosophy of life.

A person walks down a city street, perhaps inexplicably happy or modestly content, or maybe consumed by the routines of their day or bothered by life’s little annoyances.

High above them, in the upper reaches of a skyscraper under construction, work is being done. A crane is lifting beams or huge HVAC units, glass ...

Husband Says County Surrogate Candidate Facing 'Electronic Lynching'

May 23, 2019

Dear Editor,

My name is Charlie Alfano, and I am the husband of Isabella Alfano who is running for Morris County Surrogate. I do not engage in Twitter or Instagram and my Facebook is set to private, and only post on occasion. I am compelled to speak out because what I am reading on Facebook as of late is nothing short of an electronic lynching of my wife.

I have been reading (or have been ...
