paying it forward to help those in need this holiday season

Chester County Ramblings - Fri, 2015-11-27 12:44

The holiday season is here. There are many in Chester County facing hardships of all kinds including losing their homes or needing resources for health related issues. People of all ages, races, religions. With small children and without. Families as well as individuals.

If you know of services or non-profits faith based and otherwise which help families in need in Chester County PA please post a comment or post a comment on the Chester County Ramblings Facebook Page. Include any links, contact names and numbers, and so on. I am talking food, clothing, pro-bono legal assistance, shelter, housing, health related…YOU NAME IT! (and food banks and non-profits seeking donations you may also post comments regarding what you are looking for and how people can find you.)

As human beings we need to pay this forward. The economy has been tough the past few years. And but for the grace of God any of us could fall on unexpected hard times.

I know sometimes pride prevents people from reaching out for help, but I am hoping maybe if they see this post and my readers post helpful links and suggestions in comments we can help people out there.

Thank you

barn love/historic preservation/area preservation

Chester County Ramblings - Fri, 2015-11-27 10:11

So in the fall of 2009, before I lived in Chester County, I got lost on a country road as a passenger in a car and snapped a photo.  I just recently found out I actually know the people who live there now. I thought that was pretty cool and love the way the folks who live there now described living there as being the happy new stewards of the property, not just an owner.

This my friends, is living historic preservation. And it is very, very cool and we need more of it in Chester County, PA and elsewhere. A developer building new plastic Lego developments and calling them “carriage house homes” and other cutesy names doesn’t make them other than plastic Lego boxes.

This barn? The real deal. And rapidly disappearing from our landscape out here.

Black Friday for Eagles fans

Heron's Nest - Fri, 2015-11-27 06:02
It's Black Friday for Eagles' fans, too.

Just when you thought it could not get any worse after last week embarrassing blowout loss to the Bucs, the Birds traveled to Detroit and turned into turkeys on Thanksgiving Day.

The Eagles were overmatched by the Lions in every aspect of the season, getting a second-straight drubbing, this time on national TV.

I thought Chip Kelly needed to send a message to this team a couple of weeks ago. Now it might be too late.

But it still would be nice to see if the coach does something today, other than spout the same, tired remarks about his team, which is giving every indication of having bailed on their coach.

I thought Kelly should have released wide receiver Miles Austin after that loss to the Dolphins after it appeared he did not exactly give a great effort of several balls.

Then after their defense got undressed last week by the Bucs, I thought Kelly might put defensive coordinator Billy Davis' head on a platter.

Intead the defiant coach insisted he had a very good football team and would not be making any roster changes, in part because of the short work week.

How did that work out?

It might be too late for Kelly to take action now.

For the first time, after yesterday's humbling loss, he looked pretty much like his team, at a loss to explain how this debacle happened. Kelly need only look in the mirror. He's the guy who won the power struggle with Howie Roseman and took over complete control of the roster and personnel decisions. His fingerprints are all over the roster decisions that turned a 10-6 team into this dreck.

Now Kelly needs to deliver a message.

His team already did yesterday.
