    After My Drive Through New Jersey

    After my drive through New Jersey I am reminded of a joke that is so true Do you know why they call New Jersey the Garden State?   Because Toxic Waste Dump would not fit on the license plate   I am a big fan of kevin Smith but I see why he moved to California

    The Parkway!?

    Hell no there are no gardens near the parkway! lol There really are pretty areas of New Jersey, but as soon as our car hit the NJ Turnpike, all I could see and smell was trash. No joke.

    I used to have a big one when I had a garden but now I live in an Upstairs flat and all I can do is to have a few herbs on the window sill. Herbs are essential for good cooking
