I'm just about at the end of my computer crisis though not close enough to give you the full rundown on it right now. Suffice it to say it was an enormous PIA and would have turned into a disaster had it not been for Karen Harris at Gigabeach Computers
in Rehoboth. Had it not been for her, we wouldn't be able to do our ybl emails, update or manage the site content (at least not from the comfort of our office) or do any number of… Continue

What's old is new again, or at least "in" again and what once took place in a little town called Bethel, NY 40 years ago is happening again tonight, in a little town called Milton, De...kind of
, anyway. It's the second coming of Woodstock, in spirit and on the big screen, and for those of us who missed it the first time around and for those of us looking to recapture some our "glory days", Milton Theatre is giving us all a chance to do it this weekend with the screening of "Taking… Continue

Simple. Sloppy. Delicious. I'm talkin' burgers here- big, fat, hangin' off the bun burgers and for me, the jucier, the messier, the better(er). How 'bout you? What's your style? I also consider burgers "Mood Food", in other words, the perfect food for the "perfect" siutation. Sure, I love'em just about anytime, but there are just some times and some places that just scream "BURGER!" more than others. Take Delmarva Bike Week

The noun powwow, from the Narragansett eastern Algonquian language, refers to any gathering of native people. Powwow can be used as a verb meaning "to confer in council." In Indian country, it means "a secular event featuring group singing and dancing by men, women, and children." The history of the powwow passes from generation to generation when people gather yearly for a celebration of culture. Skilled Native American artisans, who have created their wares all year long, travel to various… Continue

For those of you out there who normally wouldn't even think
of going to a car show yet alone actually go to one, reconsider-just this once- and give it a try. Why, because despite what you might think, car shows aren't really about cars at all, they are about dreams and inspiration, impassioned talent and determination and forging bonds of family and friendship stronger than any welds that hold the cars together. To put it another way, car shows are all about what the cars represent… Continue

Did you know that 4th of July celebrations originally consisted of people gathering to consume double sized helpings of rum and to critisize the way the then current government was running the country? How about that the 4th wasn't a nationally recognized holiday until 1938? This means that until then, celebrating the day meant losing a day's wages. What about that the first 4th of July party was actually held on July 8th? See, you can use that as an excuse to have another party- as if you need… Continue

With all the justly due attention the 4th of July gets, I thought I'd shift some attention to the day that made it all possible, literally and historically. Just as the number four follows the number 2, so too is the historical significance of the 4th of July dependent on the 2nd of July. To find out why, we just need to ask Ben Franklin, inventor, philosopher, architect for a nation, wisdom for the generations, patriot and one of the most quoted Americans in history:
“ The second… Continue
