I thought that my husband was the only one who used this term!
DH is from the Philly area, but moved to Hawaii in his 20's. We spent the first day of our honeymoon in Wildwood. He tried to get me to go into the ocean, but egads! There were hypodermic needles and syringes strewn all over the so-called beach, NO WAY! Are you kinding me? I'm from Kaneohe Oahu Hawaii, I spent all of my free time at Lanikai Beach

My SIL (DH's sister) still lives on Oahu and whenever they come to visit (or go back East to see family) we MUST get her as many Taylor Hams as we can fit into her suitcase to take home.

My family loves scrapple. I do not. Although, to be honest, I haven't had it since I was a kid. I don't know if I can get it here, or not. I haven't looked for it.

As for the driving question, people pretty much everywhere suck at driving, just in different ways. I drive all over the country for business. I'm always discovering new ways for people to drive badly. Outside of the US, they have additional ways to drive badly. Florida is a place where people from everywhere who drive badly go to retire, and drive everyone from somewhere else nuts who drives badly, but in a different way.

I don't drive a whole lot in Dallas, because all the roads around me are toll roads. It costs me at least ten bucks to go more than ten miles.

BTW, my baked potato was very good, but actually too big. I couldn't finish it. Good thing I didn't add bacon.

It wasn't that way when I was a kid. Actually, I thought that was a North Jersey problem, even now. I haven't been back in a long, long time. I fly in and out of Newark a lot, but don't get to spend any serious time in Jersey.

I remember someone talking about driving in a city where the sidewalks were something you herded the pedestrians back up on. I think it was New York.

K-girl, what year did that happen, with the syringes on the beach in Wildwood?

It's happened about a dozen or so times over the last 40 years, but mostly to nothern NJ beaches. It's a shame, though, that folks think all NJ beaches are constantly strewn with medical waste.

I won't swim or keep fish I catch any farther north than Point Pleasant beach, which is about 60 miles south of NYC. Anything closer to the city, and the water goes from green/blue to greyish brown.

I've only had good scrapple a few times. It was homemade by Amish people. Other times it was pretty bad.

Never heard of goetta.

KEWL!!!
The NYC police tried that in midtown, to herd pedestrians on sidewalks, but it didn't work. There's just too many people.
