    Space X launch live

    I was watching the lift off on CNN and 15 seconds to launch, they suddenly switched to it high up and accelerating. For some reason they skipped the launch.

    Barred Owl

    Very nice. Magnificent creatures. I've heard they may be on Cedar Creek and the Forked River too, but I've never seen one.

    Pemberton has nice examples of homes of that era. I went to Pemberton High school, and rode through that town for 7 years to school on a bus. A man named Lyman was mentioned above. I picked blueberries as a teen for 4(?) summers, 2 of them for Lyman Simpkins. Do you see anything about him Guy?

    Heritage Minerals

    I like that lake a lot, and I like the name. I recall a couple family picnics there. I've lived and swam in Hampton Lakes, Presidential Lakes, Lakehurst, and Bamber Lake. I also swam in Mirror lake and both swimming lakes in Forked River and Harry Wright lake in Whiting too. Fond memories.
