Oh, Tom. I'm so sorry to learn of your health situation. I know you're strong and will overcome this, too.

God bless you and your good neighbors, Tom!

Could you please post the web address of the Facebook page you mentioned? I'd love to see it and I know others would too!

Take good care of yourself!

KJ. Have you joined facebook? You must know 10,000 people here...

Karen said...

LOL, Anonymous 9:01 a.m.

Imagine the amount of disposable time that would require!

Karen: Maybe with your direct hot line into the Borugh Manager you can get the Borough to actually enforce the sidewalk clearing ordinance for a change. There are properties in the Borough that couldn't possibly care less about the requirement to shovel sidewalks with in 24 hours of a storm. And some businesses actually plow their lot snow onto the sidewalks. Meanwhile I see 80 year old residents who are out doing what needs to be done.

Bust down and join fb, KJ. You're the only one. Plus the speed and real time of facebook is making traditional blogs look like old-time slugs that nobody will be visiting any more. Join us!

Karen, you'll have a blast on Facebook -- most of Phoenixville is there and it's very quick to go through the feeds and find out what's happening.

Plus, you can link your blog posts to FB so everyone will know when you've updated.

FB speed??? You've got to be kidding. It's terrible and has lot's of restrictions and more drivel than any human should have to endure.

4 days, Bob!

I can almost hear the crack of the bat and the slap of the ball in a glove.

Can't come soon enough after this winter.

I'm doing well, Bob, thanks for asking!

It just seems to me that those complaining about this Borough's snow removal effort and those doing the same in just about every other municipality up and down the east coast need to excersize a whole lot more patience. These are the same people who will first complain when their local governments need to raise taxes to pay for all the snow removal needed this year. If you know how to do it better, quicker and cheaper, without tax increases, along with ideas of where the workers should put 40 or so inches of snow, suggest it instead of constantly complaining. Give me a break.
