St. Elizabeth's College in Morris Township NJ

I've had a few clients inquire about The College of Saint Elizabeth recently so I thought I'd quickly do this post.  It is located in Morris Township in the Convent Station neighborhood. It is a private college, Roman Catholic four year liberal arts college for women. The college dates back to 1899 and has long been viewed as bringing beauty and refinement to Convent Station, Morris Township.Like alot of other buildings and sites in Morristown NJ, The College of Saint Elizabeth is also the oldest woman's college in New Jersey. It was one of the nation's first Catholic colleges to award degrees to women. The campus offers theater and cultural events to Morris Township NJ residents on a regular basis. One of the most popular campus destinations for locals is the college's greenhouse, which was built in 1911. New York City is only an hour by train from the front gate of The College of Saint Elizabeth, making this quaint college town a perfect place to live for commuters.Susan Zanzonico - Morris Township NJ Real Estate - 973-214-5872...

Summit NJ Midtown Direct is Entertaining

I took a ride on the Summit NJ Midtown Direct train today.  I went into New York to pamper myself at a beauty salon because I work hard and deserve it.  I found the train ride to be enjoyable, relaxing and entertaining. Not only was the train ride from Summit relaxing, it was rather amusing.  Now I don't take the train into New York everyday, but I was on the train with people who do ride it daily going to and from work.  On the way in, I noticed one girl infront of me start to put on her makeup after the train took off.  She had a magnifying mirror with her and was applying mascara, foundation, the works.  She was wonderfully transformed when she was done.   The guy behind me was trying to sort out some problems with his kids.  Apparently they were sitting in the car in front of the house smoking marijuana.  He was explaining this to his wife on the phone and that he knew it wasn't a cigarette because of the way they were holding it.  He called his son on his cell from the house and confronted him....watching him squirm in the car the whole time.  His proposed punishment was to take the car away for a week.  I guess this will solve the problem of the kids smoking pot "in the car".  Maybe they'll just sit on the front porch of the house, who knows. There was a guy within my view working on his computer and I think he made me feel just a little guilty.   After this, I made a few calls and "to do" notes on my calendar.The guilt didn't last long because I rarely get to take a day off.  As I settled back into relaxing, I glanced to my left.  The girl in the seat across the aisle from me just plopped a blob of moisturizing cream on her face.  She then proceeded with the entire makeup routine. ...
