Chess Club forming in South Jersey
Chess anyone?

Mizpah-Haddon Heights Lodge #191 of F&AM is beginning a community chess club for masons and non-masons of all ages to get together, talk and play chess. People of any skill level are welcome to join and attend. Even if you are not local, but are interested, join our list if you like as some of our members are on Chess.com and play regularly. The idea is that the club would provide instruction, camaraderie and good conversation. Chess is such a time honored tradition, it is only fitting that a masonic lodge should have such a club.

All club gatherings and events will take place in the downstairs area of:
Mizpah-Haddon Heights Lodge #191
511 Station Avenue
Haddon Heights, NJ 08035

If you are interested in this club and would like to be kept in the direct loop of communication regarding its developments, please visit the following link and join the email list created especially for this club.

Thank you all in advance!
I think this club is going to be a wonderful addition to our local community.

New Ask LBB
  Here's a new excerpt from Ask the Little Bald Bastard, which started as a column in Venue magazine back in 2000.

Dear LBB,
  What's the deal with French Canadians?
- Erin

Dear Erin,
  Canada is the pudgy sixth grade hall monitor of the western world. Grown-ups are always complimenting it on being polite and well-mannered, but when it tries to warn the bigger kids against running in the hall, they just laugh.

  Read the full answer here, or subscribe to the Ask LBB feed at asklbb.

It's too quiet....
Waaay too quiet around here ;) Anybody visit campus lately? They gave the student center a name, still haven't named the new education building, and rumor has it that Bosshart will be demolished sooner rather than later.

Hope everyone's enjoying the cooler weather and making plans for homecoming!

I was really sad when Rowan deleted the webpage I worked so hard on.

Don't you think with all of the tuition we pay our webpages would be left forever?

Even sadder is all of the data that was there I had stored on a zip disk and zip drives are damned near obsolete as far as I can tell.

This community is too quiet - someone should recruit new graduated every semester damn it.

Supporting the Rowan football team...(?)
Dear Friends, Fraternity Brothers, and Fellow Rowan Alumni:

Although I don't really advertise the fact, I now work as a grill cook at Rowan. It sometimes feels strange to be back in Glassboro, but hey, I get to feed lots of kids and the people I work with are wonderful. After learning I was a Rowan alum, Profs football fan and Rowan chef Bill Hollis asked me to circulate the missive below. Ever since K.C. Keeler left Rowan and took U.Del all the way to winning the Div. I-AA championship (something he didn't quite do here), I would love to go to Salem, Virginia and celebrate a national championship. When we make it, I know Chef Bill will be right with the team on the road to the Stagg Bowl, cheering along with students, alumni and fans. Whether you attend only Homecoming or are a regular visitor to John Page Field, please help Bill and the rest of the Rowan family support the team all the way to the Stagg Bowl!

If you would pass Bill's story along to all of your Rowan friends and help get the word out, it will be greatly appreciated!

RU Class of '99
... It all started with a taunt, as many relationships do. It's my first season here at Rowan as a chef, and automatically keep track of its sports clubs.
As I met the football team, I (yes, I started it. What, they were gonna mess with a 48-year-old?!) told them not to begin losing. The taunt? "Keep winning, boys, you get meat. Lose - you get grit cakes and couscous until you win again." Good-natured stuff, yeah?
... I'm entertaining company during week 3 of the season. I see it on the bottom of the screen on ESPN - Robert Morris 28, Rowan 7.
After we quickly dress (not you business), we arrive at the stadium in the 4th quarter. It's 28-14, but Mike Orhiel is driving the offense. With just under 5:00 to go, they punch it in.
All Rob Mo has to do is eat some clock, though. I begin to yell it, as loud as I can:


Well, the defense heard (at least I choose to believe that) - they hold, 3 and out - more importantly, only 22 seconds come off the clock.
The rest is history - an OT win.
The next game was a night game. I attended, with a banner, which said


As we (I consider us a "we"... I'm invested here!) headed into the second half up 23-0, the sign had seen very little action. UNTIL... TCNJ scored 20 unanswered points. Then, oh yes, the sign was UP. A LOT. Fans, cheerleaders, Dance Teamers - all wanted to know the story. Fans took PICTURES of the damned thing! ...
I propose this, for Homecoming, as I continue to strike fear into their carnivorous hearts:
We need a plethora (or more!) of "COUSCOUS" banners peppering the stands. We need to loudly chant "COUSCOUS!" when the game begins. And, for that matter, whenever the Profs falter. Just to let them know we want a win badly enough to threaten large beefy young men with vegetables. I hope you will all join me in cheering and cajoling our beloved Brown and Gold to victory over (who the Hell are we playing anyway?) ...

Feeling old...

1. Your houseplants are alive, and you can't smoke any of them.
2. Having sex in a twin bed is out of the question.
3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.
4. 6:00AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed.
5. You hear your favorite song on an elevator.
6. You watch the Weather Channel.
7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of hook up and break up.
8. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14.
9. Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as "dressed up."
10. You're the one calling the police because those %&@# kids next door won't turn down the stereo.
11. Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around you.
12. You don't know what time Taco Bell closes anymore.
13. Your car insurance goes down and your payments go up.
14. You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonald's leftovers.
15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.
16. You no longer take naps from noon to 6 PM!
17. Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the beginning of one.
18. Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 AM would severely upset rather than settle your stomach.
19. If you're a gal, you go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid,
not condoms and pregnancy tests.
20. A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good stuff."
21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.
22. "I just can't drink the way I used to" replaces, I'm never going to drink that much again."
23. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work.
24. You drink at home to save money before going to a bar.
25. You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that doesn't apply to you and can't find one to save your sorry old butt.

hey gang!

Wake up grads!
So I graduated in December and it was pretty anti-climatic since there IS NO CEREMONY in December.

I completely missed the deadline for walking in Spring graduation, so I figure it wasn't meant to be. Anyone out there want to fill me in on what I could have expected had I chosen to walk? How was your graduation?

Please share the best and/or worst moments of your graduation ceremony so that I can create a pretend graduation in my mind to cherish for all eternity...

Hi, and thanks for the welcome :)
I graduated from Rowan in '99, and I'm about to wrap up my first year at ACCC's culinary division, the Academy of Culinary Arts. Was anyone else here in Law & Justice or part of the greek thing?

It's a beautiful Day
We aren't very active in here - just thought I'd say "hey" and welcome to chele422 and do a quick update.

I have been working long term teaching Phys Ed at Lower Cape May Regional. I really like it there, it would be nice if they had a permanent opening. I will be there until just about the end of the school year and it's teacher salary not sub pay so I really can't complain.

Hope everyone has a great holiday.

Top 10!!!! x-posted
Top ten signs you have been living in the G-boro too long (or your whole life!)

10. You remember a time when the Study Hall Pub was open and actually used to hang out there
9. You know someone who went to Glassboro State College but in the end graduated from Rowan Univeristy
8. You remember the big controversy when the name changed, including when KYW-3 came to cover the story of the students ripping up the flowers planted to spell Rowan College
7. You know that the now abandoned Boston Market was a Roy Rogers for YEARS!!!
6. You know that there used to be a movie theater where there is now a dollar store and Radio Shack in the K-mart shopping plaza, also known as Collegetown
5. You remember when the Shop-rite was just a vacant lot
4. Ditto for the BlockBuster
3. You know that the Wendy's used to be where that Mandarin chinese place is
2. You know that the accupunture place next to taco bell is far from being that (wink wink)
And the number one sign you have been living in Glassboro too long...
1. You never once questioned what that smell was!

Ha! Hope you all enjoyed that :)

How many people watching this place are currently working at a job that is NOT what they went to Rowan for?

I was impressed though that Dr. Buhrer called to tell me about a job she saw in the paper that is not far from me. I called about the job and sent them my information. The paper said it was for an immedeate opening so I was hoping to hear from someone right away for an interview. Maybe I am just impatient.

Today at the school where I substitute the health teacher told me she is retiring this year - she may even go out on disability, she's been sick for a long time. They have a nepotism policy though and my mom works there - I went to the Super to find out exactly what's what, it's not like my mom is administration, she's a secretary.

Zach got a job
Sucka called to tell me he's got a job and then hangs up before I can get his current email. Sounds like bragging to me! Anyway I guess I can just pretend I'm on extended vacation - the lack of rushing around is VERY nice. This is NOT a good time of year to be looking for a job in my area but I am going to hit up the papers daily until I find something.

On a positive note I hear they didn't actually fill the position I interviewed for in OC - maybe there is hope yet!

I miss the bookstore
This was the first Christams I didn't go catch the sale on Christmas items and use whatever money I had left on my Rowan card at the University bookstore. I pretty much didn't have any money for shopping anyway. My daughter Emily is in pre-school and they have way too many people working there. Between the director, teachers, and teacher's assistants there are 10. Lucky for me there is a real Dollar Tree store near by and I got some great stuff in there that you'd never guess was from a dollar store. Next year I'm going to make up real lists and go to regualr stores I swear!
