living in bucks county: Bucks County – A Creative Place To Live - 04/28/15 09:30 AM
 
Most have heard Bucks County is famous for its landmarks and covered bridges, but did you know we are also quite well known for some great authors?
 
In 1932, “The Good Earth” written by Pearl S. Buck of Perkasie won a Pulitzer Prize as well as a Nobel Prize. She was known for her work as an advocate for women’s and minority rights. Guided tours of her 1825 farmhouse are available. The National Landmark also boasts a gift shop, amazing gardens and special events.

living in bucks county: Avoid Allergies This Year! Really! - 04/17/15 07:23 AM

For those of us in Bucks County who suffer from allergies, we know the misery. Itchy and watery eyes, sneezing, stuffy nose, dry throat – and you just feel miserable.

But, believe it or not, there are things you can do to reduce your misery and help you feel better.

living in bucks county: A Reflection - 04/02/15 10:52 PM

Most of us are aware of the upcoming holidays. Easter and Passover both occur right around the same time frame, and there is plenty of preparation for both.
 
One thing both Easter and Passover have in common is new life (or rebirth). We can all reflect on new life – we experience life when a baby is born, watching the buds form on the trees outside, and seeing a flower bloom.
 
Spring also brings new life – we can see deer with their new fawns, baby rabbits in our backyards, baby birds in the trees, fresh grass … (3 comments)

living in bucks county: Dress Up Your Pet Day - 01/17/15 12:23 AM

 
A couple of days ago on the news, they were doing a story on celebrating National Dress Up Your Pet Day today. That got me thinking – we really should celebrate our pets!
 
I’m of course not asking you to dress your pet up in funky clothes (unless you want to of course), but show them some appreciation today. Give them an extra treat, some extra snuggle time, or maybe even take your dog for an extra long walk. You may not appreciate the cold, but your dog just might really enjoy the extra time outdoors – and … (2 comments)

living in bucks county: What will you be this Halloween? - 10/31/14 02:41 AM

 

Remember when you were a kid? Pretending to dress up, be a soldier, playing cops and robbers… for most of us, those are what we remember most about our childhood. And some of us might even still have some of those outfits!
 
 
Halloween is that one time of the year that we all have the chance to act like our kids. It doesn’t matter if your children are still young, or if they’re grown up and moved away. Everyone has experienced Halloween and the magic of pretending you are someone else for a couple of hours.

living in bucks county: The Meaning of Mother’s Day - 05/08/14 12:48 PM

 
 
What does Mother’s Day mean to you?
Created in 1908 by Anna Jarvis who simply wanted to honor her mother, Mother’s Day became an official holiday in the United States in 1914. Originally, the holiday was meant as a day of personal celebrations between mothers and their children – however over the years Mother’s Day has been a celebration of all mothers in our lives.
Some of us might celebrate Mother’s Day with our own families, and some might remember mothers who have passed away and left cherished memories. No matter how you might celebrate Mother’s Day … (1 comments)

living in bucks county: Great places for a walk - 04/24/14 10:47 AM

 
Let’s face it – we have all been snowed in for the last couple of months. Since spring has officially arrived, the weather is perfect for walking around our neighborhoods and local parks. Walking is a great way to work off those winter pounds, get yourself in shape, and look great for the summer months.
Many of us walk around our neighborhoods and developments, and never seem to think of visiting local parks for a “change of scenery”. Walking in parks and on trails through the woods takes your mind off of the idea of “exercising”, which in turn … (1 comments)

living in bucks county: Simple and Inexpensive Home Repairs - 04/09/14 04:09 AM

 
Most of us are very guilty of doing “lazy home repair”. Let’s face it, you start a project such as painting a room and never finish it completely. You might think you finished it, but did you paint the molding, finish the trim, and give the ceiling a fresh coat of paint? More than likely, you didn’t. That’s ok – many of us are very guilty of doing the same.
If you are constricted in trying to get a home repair project done over the weekend, the trick is to not try to do too much at one time. … (1 comments)

No doubt about it – I think I speak for everyone throughout Bucks County when I say we’ve had our fill of snow this year. It almost seems as if every time you look out the window, our yards are covered in a white and fluffy blanket (and in some cases, that blanket has ice).
