It might as well be Toronto. I'm sure they have a huge fan base in Brooklyn.

knee jerk - that's dumb. but I wouldn't expect anything more from a Ranger fan.

Bill Torreys' Islanders success plan: finish dead last for four or five years, receive a bunch ofRead More low draft picks (who we don't have pay much money to), plug in some veteran role players (who we don't have to pay much money to)and win Stanley Cups until the team either gets old or expensive, then sell off the pieces. Cheap franchise right from the start, nothing magical about those teams. They were stacked with low draft picks, which no longer can work due to the increased number of teams diluting the draft. How well has that worked in the 30 years since?

They could at least repaint the arrows in the parking lot! Was hoping the new market would take careRead More of that. Most dangerous parking lot in Commack!

Similar to Uncle Giuseppe's, its a bit too pricey for regular shopping, at least for a family and aRead More budget.
P. J. Miller April 5, 2014 at 07:55 am
Agree with IMHO. Trying to be like Uncle Giuseppe's but never will! Very expensive can do muchRead More better elsewhere and very limited on alot of items. Shop the circular, but otherwise you can do better elsewhere. Fish dept SMELLED of bad fish so we walked away! It will do well because there is nothing nearby, but a regular supermarket would have been a better choice price wise!

I liked Commack Kosher and the owner. Unfortunately, there is a lot more competition. Kosher foodRead More is available as Shop Rite locally, and in Plainview, elsewhere, Queens and beyond. I go to Queens at least once a month, as they have a much wider selection.

I now am traveling to Woodbury kosher in Hicksville :( they do however deliver to where I am so IRead More went there and I now will have them deliver so I don't have to go there!! am I happy? NO, but I have to do what I have to do.
CommackMom April 6, 2014 at 07:11 am
Part of the reason they closed was due to an increase in the rent. Although they will be missed IRead More think the main focus here should be Why is the landlord raising the rents substantially when 1) Commack Butcher has been there for a very long time and 2) there are SO MANY empty stores once again.

JACK, The Church IS NOT these human FRAUDS and PHONIES, who hold daily and weekly, POLITICALRead More INDOCTRINATION SESSIONS, AND kowtow to whatever alien political ideology, that is popular, and that they embrace. It is my understanding that ALL religions suffer, to some varying degree, from these FRAUDS. So you have to HOLD YOUR NOSE AND IGNORE THEM, and have enough Faith, that THESE TYPES, are the social flotsam, that is 'PASSING THROUGH', any Society's 'digestive system'...and are anomalies, NOT THE RULE...AND that any 'influence' they have, is temporary...LIKE A MIGRAINE...or a stomach virus !

Jack, I am not anti-Catholic. Humans have done harm to the Church(priests, bishops, etc). I donateRead More regularly and directly to the Parish outreach, which helps people all over the Island. I was not referring to regular maintenance in my previous post. They raised money during the recession to install ceramic, marble, and oak in a church that was 20 years old. I feel that it was an unnecessary burden for the parishioners whose generosity is always exploited. And Jack, the main reason for lower contributions is lower attendance at Mass, and there are many reasons for that.
Jack March 19, 2014 at 07:17 pm
Brookhaven Why don't you criticize all religions like you do the Church. Jump on that bandwagon.Read More Bottom line the Church has so much good for the world and I'm not going to let some earthly men detract me from enjoying being a Catholic and attending Mass. I feel very lucky to be Catholic. The combination of all other religions combined do not come near what the Cathokic Charities has done for those in need. If they make a few mistakes, so be it. Why don't you find yourself another religion if you care about God at all. I think you will be disappointed. Robert, I appreciate your post an agree with you. I think things are cyclical and we have a society an culture now that belittle religion and especially the Church. I enjoy the extra room in the pews and look forward to seeing better days with more attendees. I also look forward to a more conservative government that will support faith based operations and the departure of this leaderless government we have now.

Oh stop. What in the WORLD do you care what goes on in a place when you or your loved ones aren'tRead More present? As long as it was cleaned up afterwards (and I believe I read they sanitized it TWICE to appease you lunatics). Question: Do you ever stay in a hotel? Do you really want to know what happened there in the past? Does it really matter as long as you know the hotel cleaned up the room? I guess you can't go on public transportation or touch a doorknob either? People are getting all worked up for no reason at all. Would I ever go to a party like that? Probably not. But I mean really...live and let live.

What the United States and Canada are experiencing right now is making global warming alarmists suchRead More as Al Gore look quite foolish. The following are 10 of Al Gore’s stupidest global warming quotes… #1 In 2008, Al Gore boldly declared to a German audience that “the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in 5 years.” (Needless to say, that did not happen. In fact, the ice cap in the Arctic actually got larger this year.) #2 “CO2 is the exhaling breath of our civilization, literally. … Changing that pattern requires a scope, a scale, a speed of change that is beyond what we have done in the past.” (Actually, without carbon dioxide life on earth would not exist.) #3 “The planet has a fever. If your baby has a fever, you go to the doctor. If the doctor says you need to intervene here, you don’t say, ‘Well, I read a science fiction novel that told me it’s not a problem.’ If the crib’s on fire, you don’t speculate that the baby is flame retardant. You take action.” (It sounds like what Al Gore really needs is more cowbell.) #4 During a speech at NYU Law School in 2006, Al Gore made the following statement: “Many scientists are now warning that we are moving closer to several “tipping points” that could — within as little as 10 years — make it impossible for us to avoid irretrievable damage to the planet’s habitability for human civilization.” #5 “Here is the truth: The Earth is round; Saddam Hussein did not attack us on 9/11; Elvis is dead; Obama was born in the United States; and the climate crisis is real.” #6 “The interior of the earth is extremely hot – several million degrees.” (It actually peaks out at about 11,000 degrees.) #7 “There is an air of unreality in debating these arcane points when the world is changing in such dramatic ways right in front of our eyes because of global warming.” #8 “It would be an enormous relief if the recent attacks on the science of global warming actually indicated that we do not face an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it.” #9 “The survival of the United States of America as we know it is at risk. And even more — if more should be required — the future of human civilization is at stake.” #10 “We ought to approach this challenge [of global warming] with a sense of profound joy and gratitude: that we are the generation about which, a thousand years from now, philharmonic orchestras and poets and singers will celebrate by saying, they were the ones that found it within themselves to solve this crisis and lay the basis for a bright and optimistic human future.”

Francis Soyer: Point of information if you will. When one is going to install the new LED light bulbRead More which would be the preferred choice? The MiracleLED Un-Edison 60W Equivalent Frost or the Samsung A19 60-Watt Warm White. From the knowlege you demonstrated above I thought I would ask an expert.
Francis Soyer January 30, 2014 at 10:27 am
Vincent - Honestly I'm not too familiar with either product. Neither is an "industryRead More standard" name brand. Samsung is obviously know for their electronics, I don't know if they are actually manufacturing their LED's or using somebody else's, but Samsung generally has good products. MiracleLED, unknown??? However I did a quick search on both. Samsung: 10.8 watts, 810 lumens, 27,000k, 15,000 hrs, 130 degree beam angle. MiracleLED: 5 watts, 500 lumens, 27,000k, 30,000 hrs, they claim "360 degree lighting" but do not list an actual beam angle, but it would certainly be much greater then the 130 on the Samsung. I would look at application first. Can you see the bulb in the fixture you are putting it in? If so the Samsung's heat sink is very visible and if it were in a glass fixture that I could clearly see the bulb I wouldn't want to see the Samsung bulb, I would pick the MiracleLED even though just by first appearance the Samsung looks like it is made better. I think the only application I would use the Samsung would be in a can light as the light output is more directional especially if I needed more light as the Samsung puts out 60% more light. Both seem to be priced at about $16 each. The more recognized LED name brands are Cree & Nochia, also, GE, Phillips & Sylvania make them as well. I like the "Cree 60W equivalent soft white (2700K) A19 dimmable LED light bulb", sold at Home Depot & Lowes.
