Why Easton?

Everyone keeps asking me why we moved to Easton, PA. Why not? It started with the Quadrant Book Shop…and cafe. Landi fell in love instantly. Jennie introduced us to the place. Homey. Booky. Coffee. Pastry. Healthy food. It’s been a bookshop for something like 20 years, which is eternity for a business these days. Now […]

Gollum Park!

When my daughter Jennie suggested we go for a walk before the Buffalo Bills game in Gollub Park, I thought she said Gollum Park! Yes, Easton has a mountain peak, it’s called “St Anthony’s Nose!” Here it is in the summer. Pretty breathtaking, wouldn’t you say? It’s maybe, about a 40 minute walk from our […]

Groundhog Day

Here we go again… Mohs surgery number nine I think? I live in the skin cancer lottery. So far so good. I have been playing in the water all my life. I was a high school P.E. teacher. I wore a hat after the age of about 50. Too late. When I was a 16 […]

Easton? Yip!

It started as a Chinese restaurant, but now contains 4 beautifully constructed flats, of which one is now ours! I’m having a noodle lunch; feeling very Millennial. Oh no! Chop […]

Virginia Tech and the AT

It was an up and down showing for the Blue Hens. I missed Friday but Saturday was a disaster and Sunday a joy. That’s sophomore Caraugh Courtney from Ireland, in an earlier doubles match. She won her singles match Sunday easily. Played really well. Solid. That’s freshman Jojo Bach from England. She played BIG. Better […]

Virginia Tech

I spent today at the Fall ITA Regional Championships on the campus of Virginia Tech. This is where they were supposed to be played… Instead it was held inside for most of the day. Nice facility. I did a bit of walking around the campus. Impressive football stadium. Surrounded by a ton of athletic fields. […]
