Wait whoa what? That little residence at Eastland Nursery is not the owner's house but is actually an unsecured transitional home for people who have come from inpatient mental health facilities and the Riverhead jail?? I like Eastland but definitely not going to the back garden to pick out plants alone anymore (or at least not without my STI friend).

TMI, no one wants to hear about your infectious diseases.

It’s been there forever.you might want to see a dr. about your condition.

Illiterate and ignorant - clearly a winning combination for you and Pac. How embarrassingly sad that pettiness is your fundamental character trait.

Thanks local, I’ll keep that in mind when you start your tired misleading whining about the airport. Duly noted.. by the way what is STI? Sorry for your lack of sense of humor.

Your feigned ignorance is unconvincing. You know exactly what an STI 1911 is but choose to be petty and malicious simply because you disagree with me on a completely unrelated topic. Want to hear something funny, try Googling what qualifies as actionable slander per se. You nailed two qualifiers in one fell swoop.

Local, I googled STI. It came up with sexually transmitted diseases. You should have included 1911.im familiar with that gun. Unlike you I’m not afraid to go anywhere without carrying a gun. As to the second part about the airport, that’s your cross to bear.you want to hear something funny? It’s an alleged full grown man who feels he has to carry a gun to go buy landscaping materials.

Great for you, enjoy being a machismo keyboard warrior. I’m a 120lb woman who is prudent enough to be ready to protect herself when going alone into a remote area where a known mental patient who is off his medication just escaped. First you allege I have a loathsome disease and now you call me a coward - you’re on quite the misogynistic roll.

No , never projected you as a coward. I’ve been to easel and farms many many times. Never dreamed of needing to be armed. I drive past eastland farms maybe 6-8 times a day. Everyone is aware of the socr house. I’m not sure if any crimes were committed by the people there.as to the misogynistic roll, no idea you were a woman. Now that I do know, rest assured any comments aren’t sexist or misogynistic. Also , maybe a little compassion for the mentally ill isn’t hard to do.
