Today's looking good in NJ. But We've had at least some rain for about 25 of the last 30 days. Enough!

I think rain is out of the forecast for today in NY/NJ.

Thanks, Mr. D.J.: I'm beginning to see the light ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/9/18 11:34am Frank In Queens:

I agree, Michael. "Rockstar" is one of the more loathsome words in our vernacular today.
  Sat. 6/9/18 11:38am Rick A.:

This is one of the best songs in all of the Superhits collections. The original is a perfect example of 70s light rock skeaze. Incidentally, Michael, will there be any more Superhits collections forthcoming?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/9/18 11:41am Michael Shelley:

YES - NEXT MARATHON WILL DEBUT VOLUME SIX!!!
