“Our beds are burning!”

The Hoboken Fire Department had a minor fire to deal with last night (if you followed me on Twitter, you would have known about it already!)

At around 12:45am, in an apartment above Zafra (301 Willow) – HFD responded to a “still alarm of fire.” Upon investigation, they found that a bed was on fire. A couple water cannons later, the fire was quickly extinguished. And you think it’s a bad thing they sit around in between emergencies? Didn’t think so!

More money for the unemployed in NJ!

A whopping $16 bucks a week!

But in yet another “hidden tax” effective starting in July 2010 – you’ll now have to contribute between $300 and $1,100 more per year for Unemployment Insurance.

For those just making even a moderate salary – would have to be unemployed for nearly 69 weeks – in order to get that extra $1,100 back.

The maximum length you can receive unemployment benefits is 99 weeks (26 from the state, 73 from the Fed.) Oh – and don’t believe those unemployment figures either – they stop counting you once your benefits run out (like several folks I know!)

NJ Unemployment Benefits increase 16 dollars per week

Boy, it sure is cold around the world!

Hmmm – we’re setting some cold weather and snow records around the globe! Haha!

BUST OUT THE SUNSCREEN!!
