About Far Hills
Far Hills encompasses five square miles in Somerset County, bordered by Bedminster Township, Peapack-Gladstone, Bernards Township and Bernardsville. It shares a public library, a community pool, athletic programs, civic organizations and a school system with Bernardsville. It also shares a fire department and a first aid squad with neighboring Bedminster Township.
The story behind Far Hills' name comes from an observation made by one of the town's early visitors. One day in 1887, area land developer and town founder Evander H. Schley's brother, Grant, and his wife, Elizabeth, arrived by horse-drawn carriage to see Evander's farms. Elizabeth is said to have remarked on the beautiful vista of the far hills, thus giving a name to the place, even before a village was built.
Elizabeth Schley's assessment over 100 years ago remains an accurate one, as today's residents still appreciate the dramatic countryside views and open, rolling landscapes within Far Hills. The municipality maintains its rural character with ten-acre minimum residential zoning laws for new construction.
Far Hills students in kindergarten through high school attend schools in the Somerset Hills Regional School District, which also serves students from Bernardsville, Far Hills and Peapack-Gladstone. Three schools in the district, all located in Bernardsville, are Bedwell Elementary School (kindergarten to grade four), Bernardsville Middle School (grades five to eight) and Bernards High School.
Far Hills Country Day School is a private, non-sectarian coeducational day school located in Far Hills, serving students in nursery through eighth grade on a fifty-five acre campus.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, New Jersey Transit's Far Hills train station is part of the Gladstone Branch of the Morristown Line. The station is located along Route 202 near the intersection of Far Hills Road. It offers service to New York's Penn Station or Hoboken Terminal. A quaint shopping area adjacent to the train station offers residents a variety of shops and services, including the Far Hills Office of Turpin Real Estate.
In the village are striking examples of Victorian homes with welcoming front porches and well-tended gardens. Further into the borough are majestic country estates, antique farmhouses, traditional center hall Colonials, modest mid-century homes and newly constructed luxury homes. A full range of housing styles and price ranges can be found in Far Hills.
The Leonard J. Buck Garden is a 33-acre public botanical garden operated by the Somerset County Park Commission.
Natirar (Raritan spelled backward) is an estate spanning 491 acres within Far Hills, Peapack-Gladstone and Bedminster. It was recently transferred from the estate of His Majesty, Hassan II, late King of Morocco, to a private, non-profit Natirar Association. The initial sale to King Hassan in 1983 for $7.5 million set a record sales price for a home purchase in New Jersey, a transaction brokered by Turpin Real Estate. The mansion, two cottages, carriage house and greenhouse stand on 88 acres that Somerset County leases to Sir Richard Branson, owner of Virgin Airlines. The main house has been transformed into The Club, a retreat facility with a full-service spa, dining and conference center. Ninety Acres Culinary Center offers a wine and cooking school. The remaining 403 acres will be retained as open space for area residents to use for outdoor activities including cross country skiing, hiking, jogging and fishing.
The Far Hills Race Meeting at Moorland Farms is one of the most prestigious steeplechase horse races in the country, and is a long-standing tradition for nearly 50,000 spectators every October. Benefiting the Somerset Medical Center Foundation, the race has raised nearly $18 million for the facility since the mid-1950s. Considered one of the premier social events of the year in the tri-state area, it is often celebrated with elaborate tailgate parties where paper plates and plastic forks are often substituted with fine china and silver tea services.
The United States Golf Association is headquartered in Far Hills. It houses the world's most extensive collections of golf memorabilia and literature, promoting a greater understanding of the game's cultural significance.

Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.
Learning by listening is a great way to:
- increases imagination and understanding
- improves your listening skills
- improves your own spoken accent
- learn while on the move
- reduce eye strain
Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

All Or Nothing At All
“Sinatra: All Or Nothing At All” is the definitive account of the life, music and career of Frank Sinatra, the
greatest entertainer of the 20 th century. Told in his own words through extensive archive interviews, along
with commentary from those closest to him, the film weaves the music and images from Sinatra’s life
together with rarely seen footage of Sinatra’s famous 1971 “Retirement Concert” in Los Angeles. The
film’s narrative is shaped by Sinatra’s song choices for that concert, which director Alex Gibney interprets
as the singer’s personal guide through his own life. With the participation of the Frank Sinatra Estate,
family members and archivists, “Sinatra: All Or Nothing At All” is an intimate portrait of the singer, the
actor and the man.

Calling All Cars: The Broken Motel / Death in the Moonlight / The Peroxide Blond
The radio show Calling All Cars hired LAPD radio dispacher Jesse Rosenquist to be the voice of the dispatcher. Rosenquist was already famous because home radios could tune into early police radio frequencies. As the first police radio dispatcher presented to the public ear, his was the voice that actors went to when called upon for a radio dispatcher role.
The iconic television series Dragnet, with LAPD Detective Joe Friday as the primary character, was the first major media representation of the department. Real LAPD operations inspired Jack Webb to create the series and close cooperation with department officers let him make it as realistic as possible, including authentic police equipment and sound recording on-site at the police station.
Due to Dragnet's popularity, LAPD Chief Parker became, after J. Edgar Hoover, the most well known and respected law enforcement official in the nation. In the 1960s, when the LAPD under Chief Thomas Reddin expanded its community relations division and began efforts to reach out to the African-American community, Dragnet followed suit with more emphasis on internal affairs and community policing than solving crimes, the show's previous mainstay.
Several prominent representations of the LAPD and its officers in television and film include Adam-12, Blue Streak, Blue Thunder, Boomtown, The Closer, Colors, Crash, Columbo, Dark Blue, Die Hard, End of Watch, Heat, Hollywood Homicide, Hunter, Internal Affairs, Jackie Brown, L.A. Confidential, Lakeview Terrace, Law & Order: Los Angeles, Life, Numb3rs, The Shield, Southland, Speed, Street Kings, SWAT, Training Day and the Lethal Weapon, Rush Hour and Terminator film series. The LAPD is also featured in the video games Midnight Club II, Midnight Club: Los Angeles, L.A. Noire and Call of Juarez: The Cartel.
The LAPD has also been the subject of numerous novels. Elizabeth Linington used the department as her backdrop in three different series written under three different names, perhaps the most popular being those novel featuring Det. Lt. Luis Mendoza, who was introduced in the Edgar-nominated Case Pending. Joseph Wambaugh, the son of a Pittsburgh policeman, spent fourteen years in the department, using his background to write novels with authentic fictional depictions of life in the LAPD. Wambaugh also created the Emmy-winning TV anthology series Police Story. Wambaugh was also a major influence on James Ellroy, who wrote several novels about the Department set during the 1940s and 1950s, the most famous of which are probably The Black Dahlia, fictionalizing the LAPD's most famous cold case, and L.A. Confidential, which was made into a film of the same name. Both the novel and the film chronicled mass-murder and corruption inside and outside the force during the Parker era. Critic Roger Ebert indicates that the film's characters (from the 1950s) represent the choices ahead for the LAPD: assisting Hollywood limelight, aggressive policing with relaxed ethics, and a straight arrow approach.
You Bet Your Life: Secret Word - Air / Bread / Sugar / Table
Julius Henry Groucho Marx (October 2, 1890 -- August 19, 1977) was an American comedian and film and television star. He is known as a master of quick wit and widely considered one of the best comedians of the modern era. His rapid-fire, often impromptu delivery of innuendo-laden patter earned him many admirers and imitators. He made 13 feature films with his siblings the Marx Brothers, of whom he was the third-born. He also had a successful solo career, most notably as the host of the radio and television game show You Bet Your Life. His distinctive appearance, carried over from his days in vaudeville, included quirks such as an exaggerated stooped posture, glasses, cigar, and a thick greasepaint mustache and eyebrows. These exaggerated features resulted in the creation of one of the world's most ubiquitous and recognizable novelty disguises, known as Groucho glasses, a one-piece mask consisting of horn-rimmed glasses, large plastic nose, bushy eyebrows and mustache.
Groucho Marx was, and is, the most recognizable and well-known of the Marx Brothers. Groucho-like characters and references have appeared in popular culture both during and after his life, some aimed at audiences who may never have seen a Marx Brothers movie. Groucho's trademark eye glasses, nose, mustache, and cigar have become icons of comedy—glasses with fake noses and mustaches (referred to as Groucho glasses, nose-glasses, and other names) are sold by novelty and costume shops around the world.
Nat Perrin, close friend of Groucho Marx and writer of several Marx Brothers films, inspired John Astin's portrayal of Gomez Addams on the 1960s TV series The Addams Family with similarly thick mustache, eyebrows, sardonic remarks, backward logic, and ever-present cigar (pulled from his breast pocket already lit).
Alan Alda often vamped in the manner of Groucho on M*A*S*H. In one episode, Yankee Doodle Doctor, Hawkeye and Trapper put on a Marx Brothers act at the 4077, with Hawkeye playing Groucho and Trapper playing Harpo. In three other episodes, a character appeared who was named Captain Calvin Spalding (played by Loudon Wainwright III). Groucho's character in Animal Crackers was Captain Geoffrey T. Spaulding.
On many occasions, on the 1970s television sitcom All In The Family, Michael Stivic (Rob Reiner), would briefly imitate Groucho Marx and his mannerisms.
Two albums by British rock band Queen, A Night at the Opera (1975) and A Day at the Races (1976), are named after Marx Brothers films. In March 1977, Groucho invited Queen to visit him in his Los Angeles home; there they performed '39 a capella. A long-running ad campaign for Vlasic Pickles features an animated stork that imitates Groucho's mannerisms and voice. On the famous Hollywood Sign in California, one of the Os is dedicated to Groucho. Alice Cooper contributed over $27,000 to remodel the sign, in memory of his friend.
In 1982, Gabe Kaplan portrayed Marx in the film Groucho, in a one-man stage production. He also imitated Marx occasionally on his previous TV sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter.
Actor Frank Ferrante has performed as Groucho Marx on stage for more than two decades. He continues to tour under rights granted by the Marx family in a one-man show entitled An Evening With Groucho in theaters throughout the United States and Canada with piano accompanist Jim Furmston. In the late 1980s Ferrante starred as Groucho in the off-Broadway and London show Groucho: A Life in Revue penned by Groucho's son Arthur. Ferrante portrayed the comedian from age 15 to 85. The show was later filmed for PBS in 2001. Woody Allen's 1996 musical Everyone Says I Love You, in addition to being named for one of Groucho's signature songs, ends with a Groucho-themed New Year's Eve party in Paris, which some of the stars, including Allen and Goldie Hawn, attend in full Groucho costume. The highlight of the scene is an ensemble song-and-dance performance of Hooray for Captain Spaulding—done entirely in French.
In the last of the Tintin comics, Tintin and the Picaros, a balloon shaped like the face of Groucho could be seen in the Annual Carnival.
In the Italian horror comic Dylan Dog, the protagonist's sidekick is a Groucho impersonator whose character became his permanent personality.
The BBC remade the radio sitcom Flywheel, Shyster and Flywheel, with contemporary actors playing the parts of the original cast. The series was repeated on digital radio station BBC7. Scottish playwright Louise Oliver wrote a play named Waiting For Groucho about Chico and Harpo waiting for Groucho to turn up for the filming of their last project together. This was performed by Glasgow theatre company Rhymes with Purple Productions at the Edinburgh Fringe and in Glasgow and Hamilton in 2007-08. Groucho was played by Scottish actor Frodo McDaniel.
