Farewell, Sarah

“Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.”
--- Eskimo proverb

Sarah, you brightened so many lives while you were here.
Now shine brightly on us from the heavens.

what a beard!

OK, I'm not a baseball fan... but there's just too much buzz about Jayson Werth's beard not to be interested.
Heck, it has its own Facebook page!
So you have to love it.
Will he be around to help the Phils? Who knows.
But maybe the beard will stay...

when the red, red, robin...

Comes bob, bob, bobbing along...
Can spring be far behind?
I hope not, because I saw my first robins -- about six of them -- outside The Reporter office here in Lansdale today.
Hope springs eternal!

try, try again

If you were planning to head out to the Lansdale Historical Society's community program tonight on the history of local firefighting -- DON'T.
It once again has been postponed. It originally was set for Feb. 9 and 11; the snow pushed it back to Feb. 16 and 25.
Now it is set for March 9 and 18. Hopefully Mother Nature will cooperate!
Call the society at 215-855-1872 for more information.

how can we wait, kate??

Oh, say we don't have to wait until April!!
Well, yes we do.
For what, you ask? For Kate Gosselin's new book, "I Just Want You to Know," scheduled for release in April.

According to the Associated Press, Christian book publisher Zondervan said the book features excerpts, prayers and memories from Gosselin's journal, offering readers a look at her life during the three years her family went from obscurity to fame on TLC's "Jon & Kate Plus 8."
And then to infamy???
Wow, what riveting reading this will be.
Oh, and Kate, LOVE the hair extensions!
You do know what sarcasm is, right Kate?

she needed notes?

Um, if you have to write the very basics on your hand, are you really prepared to be the president?

super bowl ads? ho-hum...

Not being a football fan, I generally "watch" the Super Bowl for the ads.
I wasn't too impressed this year, although these two weren't bad...
Did get a chuckle from Emerald Nuts again... and Doritos had some winners.
Anyone have a favorite?

it's an event!

No, these people aren't prepping for a party... they're scrambling to stock up before the blizzard of the millennium hits the area today.
Well, maybe not a blizzard, but definitely a "snow event."
What I want to know is, when did everything become an "event"?
We don't have snowstorms or rain storms or hail storms.
We have snow events, rain events and hail events.
Ever wonder why? It's not like we get an invitation, after all.

In case you missed it, Punsxutawney Phil proclaimed the bad news this morning: SIX MORE WEEKS OF WINTER!!
Yes, just when you may have been hoping that the worst was past us, Phil dispelled all doubts.
Hey, did you really think we were getting off that easy?
But really, Groundhog Day is great. And watching this spectacle on PCN is a must see.
I've never been to the town on Groundhog Day, but I have been there to see Phil in his "spring digs" -- a portion of the town library complete with glass walls so you can see him.
The park boasts a huge wooden groundhog statute...
really, you must go. The town bears no resemblance to the famous movie, but it's a great trip nonetheless.
Now, back to the grand weather prediction.... Phil told us what we all expected anyway... so bundle up!
