Default li history, modern times, ny aka brentwood

An Experiment in Anarchy
Modern Times, the notorious and short-lived utopian village that preceded Brentwood
By Elizabeth Moore
Staff Writer

British and French philosophers exalted it. New York intellectuals argued about it. And riders on the Long Island Rail Road gawked out the windows as they passed Modern Times, the notorious Suffolk County settlement where there were no police, money, fences or laws. Where women went about in bloomers. Where free-love escapades were rumored to be behind every cottage door.

It was easier then to go to the factory. I lived 2-3 miles away in Bayshore.
Now Im in NJ.

I used to work right down the road from it, but I'll settle for a Entemanns crumb cake from the supermarket.

Hey since where on the subject,, I used to LOVE the Black & White cookies.

You know the ones, vanilla on one side and chocolate on the other?
Well I havent enjoyed them in years, never seemed to find the rite bakery to make them. I thought I was getting older and just grew out of them!

Well Entemann's has just "perfected" the Black & White cookie!!!
If you ever see them,,TRY EM!! There "AWSOME"!!!

Now that hurt, I haven't had a good black and white in years. I'll have to see if they ship them down here to VA.
