It's been a very sad week for the world. I don't usually cry when celebrities pass on, although I do feel sad if the world loses one of my favorites. The world lost a bright light this week, and to a suicide, which makes the loss so much sadder, and I did indeed cry. With each news story, each...
I love Hershey's Mill, the premiere over 55 community located in East Goshen Township. The landscaping and entrances are lovely, it's a gated community, and there are homes in every size and price range. While there is usually a large group of homes to choose from, currently there are only 7 act...

I learned this morning that a dear man who I've known for 20 years or so is in need of some help. Dan Moore has been my trusted plumber for years. I met Dan when Mike was a young boy playing t-ball and Dan was his coach. You truly will not meet a nicer person. He's saved me from quite a few ...
