He passed away in 2007. He used to talk about that candy store job. He said he was a "soda jerk", and that he coined the term "regular" for coffee.

No one seems to want to use this Message Board any more. Facebook has taken over and I guess this doesn't interest them. It used to be busy before Facebook. Would be nice to get it going again. I always had a Message Board here. It got out of hand with cursing and arguing and I banned the trouble makers.

They seemed to think the could do whatever they wanted. One of them started a new site, bayridgetalk.com and said he wasn't going to ban or censor anyone. That didn't last too long before he started to do the same as I did, ban and censor troublemakers. He soon had to give it up as well and the site is dead now.

He started it on facebook, but it looks like that too isn't working out so well. There are just a few people who cannot play by the rules that everyone else does and ruin it for everyone.

I'll try this again and see if we can get some of the nice people back here to reminisce again about the good old days and present Bay Ridge neighborhood.

The story is not so much at all. But I can advise you.
