Roxy’s Secret Is Out…I Love Love Love My Mechanic: Moro Automotive in Mendham, NJ

By: Roxy on 10/25/11 @ 6:11 pm

Before I met Dennis Moro of Moro Automotive in Mendham, my service calls at the car dealer sounded something like this:

“It’s gonna cost you a grand just to open her up and take a look.  Of course, we’ll credit that against your [sky's-the-limit] total repair bill once we find the problem.”
“I know you brought her [...]

It’s been just about a year since I reported to our loyal Roxiticus Desperate Housewives and Roxy’s Best Of… readers that we had added our first cockapoo puppy, Peanut Butter, to our family.

By: Roxy on 05/7/11 @ 8:11 pm

Yep, I’ve neglected my blog lately, right here at Roxy’s Best Of… and over on Roxiticus Desperate Housewives.  However, I have a terrific reason, and it starts with Mendham Little League girls softball.  As my 9-year-old daughter Maddie puts it, “none of the dads had enough time to coach our softball team full time, so my [...]

Photos to come.  And they’ll be cute.  I just have to figure out how to manage the camera, the puppy, and the toy all at once.
Now, my loyal readers know I can’t say enough good things about our personal puppy nanny 911, Justine Schuurmans of The Family Dog. She’s helped us through housebreaking, separation anxiety, [...]




Peanut Butter’s Progress

Hard to believe it’s been three weeks since we drove up to Mulberry Farm in Duchess County, New York to bring home our beloved cockapoo puppy, Peanut Butter. You can see from the photos that little Peanut Butter has settled right in with our family. As I write this post, Rex is out in the [...]

We’ve just received the following H1N1 Influenza Update via London and Maddie’s “Backpack Mail,” so I thought I would share it with any of you who are seeking information about swine flu shots in the Mendham, Bernardsville, and Morris and  Somerset County NJ area.  The first part of the letter outlines basic healthy and hygiene [...]




London and Maddie Recommend… Mendham Extended Day Program for Before and After School Care at Mendham Township Elementary School and Mendham Borough Hilltop School

I just hung up the phone with one of Maddie and London’s favorite people… Andrea Castiglione (aka “Mrs. C”) of Mendham Extended Day Program.  We all met Mrs. C. back in February when Rex and I moved our investment banking practice into another firm and began commuting more regularly into New York City.  As a mom, [...]

Today’s shout-out goes to Vytas Rugys, Rex’s physical therapist at Kessler Rehabilitation Center. I’m typing this post in the reception area while Vytas puts Rex through his paces on the equipment: 30 minutes or so on the passive motion machine, maybe 10 minutes on the exercise bike. Vytas was in charge of Rex’s outpatient physical [...]
