ARTICLE ~ "Mary Moynihan is a captain on her flight management team. But she’s not flying airplanes. For the sixth consecutive year, the Hampton resident will help coax a gigantic helium balloon down the 2- mile route of the 88th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Nov. 27. 'As a little girl, my sister and I would go to my grandmother’s, and sit in front of her TV and watch the parade,' says Moynihan, 54. 'So when I heard that I could be in the parade, I was ecstatic. It was a dream come true.' After three years as a handler, Moynihan was promoted to captain."

ARTICLE ~ " 'In the Midwest, every small town has a supper club, a restaurant on Main Street,' Andrea, who was born in Minnesota and moved a lot as a child, told me on the phone after my visits. 'They’re community driven, and everyone feels welcome. I wanted to bring that homey feeling to Cranford, while focusing on fresh, mostly Jersey seafood, which you don’t see enough of away from the Shore.'.. Andrea, a graduate of the French Culinary Institute (now International Culinary Center) in Manhattan, manages both 100 Steps and A Toute Heure, which opened in 2007 as an early farm-to-table exponent. 'I was originally a chef,' she said, 'but I like being hands-on and big picture, which in Jersey is our incredible bounty of produce and seafood.' "

My 10 most scenic roads can be found all over New Jersey, from the wilds of Sussex and Passaic counties to the empty, beautiful corners of Cumberland and Salem counties.. The Shore's represented, too.. This is the time of year for weekend road trips, and my roads offer scenic beauty, peace and quiet, even shopping and eating options. With gas so cheap these days, you have no excuse not to get your motor running." Photo cred: lovethesepics.com

ARTICLE ~ " ..loving the Britton of today is tantamount to ignoring much of what Hollywood has tried to impute as ideal.. specifically, a woman over 40 whose image combines the sexual and the maternal, the ambitious and the empathetic. As one fan of the hundreds who, when solicited, offered testimonials about why they loved Britton told me, 'She makes getting older seem incredibly appealing — not just because she looks stunning, but it’s the sense of presence and surety she projects.' The combination of confidence and beauty, of wisdom and maturity — that’s what undergirds her fandom."

"To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the stop-motion TV classic, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer chronicles the Christmas icon’s decision to run away from home by transporting the same the story and aesthetic to the stage—amped up by a few dance numbers, of course. Wandering through the snow-covered North Pole, Rudolph eventually runs into Hermey the elf, an aspiring dentist who has also run away from ridicule. Together these two stumble on Yukon Cornelius, Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster, and the Clauses, weaving a tale of adventure and humor for audiences of all ages.
