News from Around the South Jersey Shore

A lot of my friends have cats. One even has a website of cat videos. But I'm extremely allergic, so allergic, in fact, that when I had my latest round of allergy testing, I frightened the nurse by my reaction to cats. So you can guess how I feel about this.

As much as I like going to Atlantic City, I'm one of those people who enjoys everything BUT the gambling. Here's a Boston Globe article that sums up why I stay away from the gaming floors.

And here's, um, two interesting responses to that article. My answer: no, I don't see hipsters infiltrating Atlantic City and if they do, they'd do better to check out the Irish Pub.

Ocean City's offering a memoir writing workshop. My tip: make sure you actually experienced what you write about.

Good news for Strathmere: they are getting sand for beach development.

And special thanks to Michelle Jeffers for her wonderful post about my book. Thanks Michelle!
