Enough of this news program is interesting that I think I will share this as a thanksgiving-themed thing.

From 1981, it's New Jersey Nightly News.

That was an interesting newscast to watch. On holidays sometimes you get more interesting feature stories since there’s usually more of a shortage of hard news. A lot of heartwarming—and disturbing—things in 1981, just as there is today…

I liked that story on the cranberries. Besides being a carrot addict (Hi, Bessie!), I’m also a cranberry addict. I keep them frozen and eat them with lunch year round. I just laid in a 30 lb. supply for the year, as you can only buy them in fall/early winter. I’ll skip that chicken foot soup recipe, though. :x

Interesting article on Sandy Hook, in light of the bad storm a few years ago. Sandy Hook, like Cape Hatteras, NC, and a lot of other areas, is probably not a good place to try to have a human habitation. :(

That story about the Portuguese community was interesting, also.

Does any of this look familiar to you? I think NJ would have been a cool place to live—so much variety from urban to rural, different ethnic communities, a lot of interesting things going on.

None of the areas look familiar, but I definitely recognize the names. Being away so long, it was kind of surreal hearing the names of so many areas that I'd heard of so often when I lived in NJ.
Reporting the news seemed so much simpler back then!
