Moble Home Blues

I was at the Millville City Commission meeting last night. We were there to get a certificate for our plantings at our home. It was nice to be recognized and to see others who are keeping their homes green.
We had to leave the meeting but in the confort of our home, saw folks fired up about a proposed city fee on Mobile Home parks such as Holly Village. I was shocked that the folks who run the place and collect the average $390 land rent pay LESS THEN $200 per YEAR for city services. So I gather that they are making a tidy sum. How tidy you ask. According to Mayor Quinn's estimate based on 220 homes they make about $90,000 PER MONTH!! Right now the city charges a $20 fee on each homeowner at moble home parks. After hearing many folks speak of the hardships, the Commisson defeated the proposal. They stated that this issue would be revisited.
Umm could the owners of these parks sell out and then have condo's in 10-20 years??

Its 11:20 pm EST and I was noodling on the internet for something different and found a link to a publication called The Chap
Its a positivily British send-up on the "gentelman". It does raise some good points how really crass the world is now. You know a world where cursing by kids is the norm and parents cursing at kids happens all the time. Its a world where where you sit at your desk trying to work and hear 3 women compare their pregnancies in stereo!!
Well, last Sunday I spent my afternoon watching the Italians and the French play for the World Cup. As you all know, French star Zenadine Zidane finished his career with the now famous headbutt. Its was a very good match for sure but that headbutt will be the story of this game.
Well Ella our dog roommate turns heads in Millville and the airconditoner hums away and so does the $$$$$.
In brighter news we got Kudos for our front porch and I plan to attend the Millville Commission meeting next Tues July 17th to accept our award. Carolyne is quite the green thumb. I am sure you would agree if you came saw the backyard. If you are online you can participate in the Carnival of the New Jersey Bloggers. You can send an email to You can go to their homepage. I am on a listserv in Philly. University City (aka West Philly). Topics range from local Philly politics (compare to NJ..) but there is discussion and debate on meaty subjects like slavery and the Iraq war or lite fare such as the name for soda. See this. I can ask almost any question and SOMEONE will know!! So sign up here.
I think you might find it entertaining and a learning experience. Well, its getting late now, stay cool and stay in school

Well We got a tax hike don't we. Since we are told
that 50% is to help with property taxes, the boys and girls in Trenton "The world makes we Take"
will have to find places to cut the budget. Lets hope Gov. Corzine does not try to pull a McGreevy and cut Arts funding to the bone.
I would call your state legislator now!!

I think George Harrison of the BEATLES says it best

"Let me tell you how it will be
There's one for you, nineteen for me
'cause I'm the taxman,
yeah, I'm the taxman

Should five percent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
'cause I'm the taxman,
yeah, I'm the taxman

If you drive a car, I'll tax the street
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat
If you get too cold, I'll tax the heat
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet

'Cause I'm the taxman,
Yeah, I'm the taxman

Don't ask me what I want it for (ha ha Mr. Wilson)
If you don't want to pay some more (ha ha Mr. Heath)
'cause I'm the taxman,
yeah, I'm the taxman

Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
'cause I'm the taxman,
yeah, I'm the taxman
And you're working for no one but me
