The Bergen County Historical Society knows how to throw a party; certainly an 18th Century Party. And, in the middle of this cold and snowy winter, we had a nice day, and the crowds showed up to celebrate Presidents Day in general, General George Washington in particular.

There is a phrase, "the magic of the stage", referring to how a play can transport you to a different place and time, as if by magic. There's another phrase, "stage magic", the art of prestidigitation, sleight of hand, making one believe that one has seen something truly wonderful by using only mundane methods. And we have the Bergen County Players production of Around the World in 80 Days, which uses the latter to enhance the former into a unique and enjoyable experience. This reviewer, along with a large crowd, braved the snow and ice to be transported back to the 19th century for an evening of pure enjoyment.

It's the day right in between the beginning of winter and the beginning of spring, and it felt like the dead of winter. Still a good crowd showed up to see the annual Candlemas/St. Brigit's Day/Groundhog day festival put on by the Bergen County Historical Society at Historic New Bridge Landing.

First of all, let me say that David Mamet's Speed-The-Plow is a play that can be appreciated on many levels. What makes it of particular interest in this play is the fact that playwright David Mamet himself, in an article written 20 years later, admitted that it had levels that he, himself, was only aware of as time went on. Underneath it all, this is a play about temptation, and how the characters react to it. The audience is only allowed to see what is on the surface, leaving it to them to use their own worldview to decide who is tempting whom, whether they are being tempted towards the good or towards the evil, and which side actually wins in the end. If nothing else, seeing the play should trigger off some lively discussions, which, alone, is certainly a pretty decent reason to see it. The Bergen County Players however, as is their usual habit, gives us many more reasons.

(from the Dumont Volunteer Fire Department; reprinted by permission)
During the Gas emergency this morning, several people inquired about were the odors were, asked if they should call them in, or reported locations were the odor was coming from. Because of this, I figured it was a good idea to explain to everyone when to and when not to call the fire department.

On Friday, December 6th, Dumont had scheduled its annual Winter Festival. The weather, however, scheduled rain, so the Festival was held on December 7th instead. Not that it made much difference to the residents of Dumont, who came out in force to celebrate the coming of the winter holidays, to light the town tree, and to meet Santa Claus, himself.
