The Philadelphia Navy Yard - 09/26/08 02:04 PM
On this rather gloomy day in the Philadelphia area, I had an unexpected chance to take a short tour of the Philadelphia Navy Yard with a client who has an office down there.
Located on South Broad Street in South Philadelphia, it is kind of shocking to me that I had never been there until today, even though I spent my first 25 years of life not more than a few miles from there. Not that city people count distances in miles. Back then I could have easily ridden my bike, which I used to do all of the time (13 comments)
Great day today in West Chester, PA - 09/21/08 06:31 PM
What a lovely day to be alive in West Chester, Pennsylvania! The weather was sunny and in the mid 70's most of the day. Max had a soccer game and he played his heart out. They lost, but hey, you can't win them all. Why? I'm' not sure!
I get a big kick out of watching Max play sports. He's a really decent player and a very good sport on the field. He's very quick to praise those that do well and I think that's a wonderful quality to have. After the game, I took a ride over to West (21 comments)

I just found out today, although I'm thinking the clues were there and I just was too self-involved to notice, that Gary Wotal is participating in a race for the American Heart Association. tomorrow morning for some donations. Yep, you heard it here. Even though Ike is bearing down on his lovely home state, Gary is running, not walking like everyone else! Here is a link to his site at the American Heart Association. https://www.kintera.org/faf/donorReg/donorPledge.asp?ievent=256369&lis=1&kntae256369=616FCF11B823449A81D8FC393072F25D&supId=231390948 Gary is a great friend.

September 14- 20 is REALTOR Safety Week - 09/12/08 03:14 PM
This has been copied from an email sent to me by Suburban West Realtor's Association. Since this is so important for all of us, I wanted to send a timely reminder to all, to be careful out there. Sponsored by the National Association of REALTORS (NAR). REALTOR Safety Week (September 14 through 20) is a time for us to remember those who have been threatened or harmed while on-the-job, but also to take precautions for our own safety, now and in the future. "Every day REALTORS put themselves at risk by welcoming complete strangers into a home or getting into a (0 comments)
Inspired By Heroes, Just Imagine - 09/10/08 09:28 PM
When someone says the word hero to me, I automatically think of someone who gives his all to make right something that is wrong. The first person that enters my mind is Abraham Lincoln. In his "The House Divided" speech, President Lincoln said: "I believe this Government can not endure permanently half slave and half free". The speech starts out as follows: "If we could first know where we are, and whither we are tending, we could better judge what to do, and how to do it". Wow! This speech would be just as valid today if he was discussing the (21 comments)

Feline Hostage Crisis in East Goshen Township, West Chester, PA, What would Jason Crouch Do? - 09/05/08 06:33 PM
I came out today to walk J.J., my new puppy around the yard today to try to explain to him why it is so much better for everyone involved if he does his potty business outside. For some reason, even though I give him ample opportunities to go potty outside, he likes to go inside better. Go figure! I guess that's why we humans no longer use outhouses!
When we came outside, I noticed Scat, our gender conflicted, bi-polar disordered cat sitting under our ornamental plum tree looking up. Straight up.
Hi baby... what are you looking at? Scat...? (24 comments)
49! Yikes! - 09/03/08 07:06 AM
A very good friend gave me a funny book of quotes about growing older called Old Age Ain't no Place for Sissies. Just this morning, on my 49th birthday, I read this quote: The great comfort of turning 49 is the realization that you are now too old to die young. - Paul Dickson As someone who was never sure which was scarier, growing old or dieing young, it's sort of a comfort to know that the "dieing young" ship has actually sailed. Being middle aged is no place for sissies either, I can assure you. Being a middle aged woman (55 comments)
What are you reading? September, 2008 - 09/02/08 09:19 PM
I just finished a really great book. I know I must sound like a broken record because I think all of the books I read are great books, but this was particularly good. I just finished James Lee Burke's latest book, Swan Peak. James Lee Burke is one of my all time favorites. His books are hardly light, though. They do make me smile occasionally, but they show a darker side of life and a much rougher existence. This books starts out with this paragraph: Clete Purcel had heard of people who sleep without dreaming, but either because of the era (8 comments)
