life is good

Chester County Ramblings - 4 hours 8 min ago


Life is good in a summer garden.

Morning is filled with the sounds of bird song . I can smell the garden phlox and roses as I water the rest of the plants. The garden is exploding with the colors of the end of mid- summer.

In the background I can hear my neighbor’s chickens clucking with some indignation of an inter-chicken family squabble.

A brave jack rabbit hops tentatively up a garden path.

A hummingbird along with a hummingbird moth flit from flower to flower in the main perennial bed.

I can now also hear in the background the hum of cicadas. To me, that is always the signal that another stage of the season called summer is about to begin.

The day started out with a heavy humid dampness, and is no doubt going to be somewhat of a scorcher before all is said and done and the sun is down. But these are the beautiful days we should cherish in the middle of winter and in our memories forever.

People often mock anyone who refers to life’s simple pleasures, but this is indeed one of them. To be able to sit in a porch chair and look at what you have created and what is growing is such a rare treat.

It may be an old cliché that people need to stop and smell the roses, but sometimes you just have to. With all the ugliness that exists in this world, there’s nothing more beautiful than a garden in bloom. I feel really sorry for people that are so miserable, mired down, and stuck that they can’t experience the simple goodness of things like this. Gardening truly is good for your soul.

Thanks for stopping by!

A pizza question for Delco history buffs

Heron's Nest - 7 hours 52 sec ago
Today we have a question from a longtime reader.

I didn't know the answer so I thought I'd put it out there for our readers.

Pat Lane is trying to get some information on an old pizza shop in Chester. She believes it was on either Seventh and Morton or maybe Ninth and Morton in Chester back in the mid-'60s. It was called ReDavid's and may have had a bar attached.

Here's the kicker. Pat's mouth still waters for intoxicating mix of cheeses they used on their pies.

"To this day, I have never had a pizza as good as those from ReDavid," Par said.

I know how she feels. I'm a dedicated Grotto fan. Every time in Rehoboth (which is not nearly enough) I have to get my Grotto slice. Their pizza has a distinctive 'zing' to it from the combination of cheese they use. For some reason, it always tastes better at the beach. It doesn't seem as good in Wilmington or Newark.

Any how, can someone help Pat out? Post a comment and I will try to relay it to her.

'Live From the Newsroom' previews Eagles training camp

Heron's Nest - 7 hours 18 min ago
You can stick a fork in the Phillies. Last night's 14th inning loss was almost too painful to watch.

Even Jonathan Papelbon, who has beeen Mr. Dependable this year, coughed up a lead in the 9th and the Phils eventually fell in 14.

Luckily, we bring relief to suffering Philly fans.

The Eagles report for training camp in just two days.

That's right, Year Two of the Chip Kelly Era is on the horizon.

To celebrate, we’ll have our Eagles beat writer Bob Grotz join us tonight to preview the Birds Training Camp. Also on our Birds panel will be local sports radio talk show host Billy Werndl, a longtime presence in Philly sports media who hosts Sports Talk of Chester Couty on WCHE-1520 AM in West Chester, as well as a longtime season ticket holder, Bob Ristron.

We'll also tell you which practices will be open to fans, and whether or not you need tickets. Longtime fans will want to get the details on a special open practice the team will hold at their old home on the Penn campus. That, of course would be Franklin Field.

In the meantime, if you have a question you'd like answered about the Birds, email it to me at editor@delcotimes.com and I'll put it to our Eagles authority, Bob Grotz.

Then tune in at 7 and take part in our live chat.
