I think I will go back to using checks at stores and cash at gas stations. I found a gas station inRead More Eagle Rock that gives a discount for using cash and generally buy my gas there. Not as convenient as using a debit card but I had to cancel my card after using it at Target right before Christmas. What a hassle.
cookiepro2 April 19, 2014 at 06:28 pm
I've started using cash more in the past year for grocery and gas. It's simplified bill paying,Read More reducing the number of credit card receipts that need to be reconciled with statements! Though I still like the 5% discount from using my Target card and the cash back bonus from Discover. Anyway gotta have a good reason now for using my credit cards, either buying online (necessity then) or some reward incentive.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

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!
Harold Krongelb March 15, 2014 at 08:11 pm
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.

I disagree. I really loved it there. It wasn't a club, it was a lounge, and summer happy hour atRead More Four is something I am going to really miss. The outdoor deck was one of the only places on Rt110 to eat and mingle outside. I hope their next endeavour is just as good!

Aweful. I'm surprised they lasted that long. The service was pompous and the food even worse.Read More Overpriced and over hyped.

The food was great the one time I are there. But otherwise, nothing positive to say about it. OverRead More priced drinks and food.

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.

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.

Baloney. The "disgusting" president was the one who falsely alleged a threat to theRead More national security of the United States in order to dishonestly justify the Invasion of Iraq, which condemned 4,486 American armed forces members (http://icasualties.org/) to futile deaths and sparked a conflagration that has consumed the lives of what has been scientifically estimated as well over a million Iraqis (http://www.globalresearch.ca/new-analysis-confirms-1-million-iraq-casualties/7950).

don't expect employers to call you back. most managers are busy and they can forget things. callRead More them a few days after the interview. good news is their are jobs... if you want to work retail for 8 bucks/hour. who can live on that? hard to not take it personally. I applied for a driver at pizza hut... was turned down via email, no meeting, no interview... I have lots of work experience, no criminal record, no accidents or points... no drug issues... how can they turn me down based on a resume and email? my age I'm guessing.
