Hometown Heroes Holiday!

If you haven't checked out the Christmas tree display in Lansdale yet -- "A Hometown Heroes Holiday!" -- what are you waiting for?

The fabulous display, housed in the Ross Family Building at 209 W. Main St., Lansdale, runs until Dec. 23 and definitely is worth a visit. 

It is sponsored by the Lansdale Business Association and Lansdale Mural Arts. The Lansdale Historical Society and local businesses have trees featured in the display.

You can stroll through this wonderful display in indoor comfort. 

There's an awesome train display by Henning's Trains, which is dedicated to the late Dick Stricker. The buildings and many of the trains are from Stricker's personal collection.

The display is open Thursdays and Fridays from 5 to 8 p.m., and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
For more information, you can call 215-855-6700.
But don't miss this great display. It's sure to get you in the holiday spirit!

You're invited to pose in this great display for a family photo!

Oh -- and don't forget to fill out a card to send a holiday greeting to a service member.

Vermont brings peace...

October was a time when there still was hope for this country ... before the election that saw America turn its back on its values and founding principles and elect ... well, you know who.

October also was a time for vacation, a time to head back to Vermont.
It was a time of peace and excitement.
A time to enjoy nature, see some snow, have a great time and relax.
It seems so long ago now.
And it took this long to bring myself to post some photos from that great escape.
I'm dealing with a lot right now, but at least I had Vermont.
