My wife grew up shelling on LBI.  Even living here in Hawaii she often talks longingly about shelling on LBI.

I have fond memories of shelling and searching for "sea glass". Its a shame that its so rare now, but its a side effect of beach parties being illegal since the early 80s. Whodathunk that drunk fools tossing beer bottles into the ocean would create a hobby for others?

Ask your wife what the rarest color she ever found was, I still have jars of white/green/brown with some blue and even a few small pieces of red.

Yikes!  More than an order of magnitude increase per day.  And I thought gas prices were bad here!

We reached 3.93 at the Arco today - which is, by far, the cheapest gas around. 

The Avg. at most name-brand stations now is $4.06 to $4.10 for regular unleaded.

A correction in the market is happening. We close our gas making refineries to correct the value of our stock and increase our profits happens every year. Next year we will be screaming about $6 a gallon gas.

Crazy crap that happens every year, it happens to be a fact of life.

Trust me, most of the people I know... drive as little as possible already.  Don't be suprised if more people start driving horse and buggies on the road!   :o  I know a few people that have quit driving cars completely already... no s***, and they say they don't miss it either except for family gatherings.  One guy hasn't drove in two years now.  He walks, rides a bike and catches a ride from others when he needs to go someplace further.

On average it costs me about $40 a week to go to work and get groceries once a week.,, my work place is 14 miles round trip and the grocery store is 42 miles round trip.  Of course we also take our garbage to the dump once every week or two... about 6 miles round trip.  Other than that... we don't go anywhere much.  Road trips are out of the question, especially out of state road trips... who has that kind of money these days?!

I drive as much as I always have.  It's just another business expense.  No big ting bruddah.

In the 70s it was different.  You could not get the gas - at any price.
