The agony continues for family of Shane Montgomery

Heron's Nest - Fri, 2014-12-19 07:03
There is no end to the agony for the family of Shane Montgomery.

It has now been three weeks since the 21-year-old West Chester University student walked out of Kildare's Irish Pub in Manayunk after a night out with friends - and vanished off the face of the earth. He has not been seen since.

These cases have a tendency to make headlines for a few days or maybe a week, then fade away.

But the horror does not stop for his family.

Less than a week before Christmas, Montgomery's family continues to press the search, looking for any clue of their loved one.

This weekend there is a run/walk to raise money to help the hunt for Montgomery.

It is heartbreaking to listen to Montgomery's mother talk about the situation. Here's hoping they get some kind of resolution soon.

126 hours of shopping: On your marks ....

Heron's Nest - Fri, 2014-12-19 06:48
Every day in my Daily Numbers portion of the blog, I list an "I Don't Get It" item.

Today I decided it needed a blog post all its own.

Kohl's stores opened their doors this morning at 6 a.m. They will not close until 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

That's right. They will be open for business for 126 consecutive hours. I suppose there are some advantages to shopping at 3 in the morning. It's certainly likely that you will be the crowds.

I just hope my wife has not yet heard of this new shopping fad.

She's a Kohl's junkie.

Then again, if she's shopping for me.....

Luck-y Day for Eagles fans?

Heron's Nest - Fri, 2014-12-19 06:39
There are actually two big games for Eagles fans this weekend.

First, of course, the Birds must take care of business on Saturday when they visit the nation's capital to tangle with the Redskins and what appears to be a newly rejuvenated Robert Griffin III.

If they take care of business, then Eagles fans will need to gather around the tube at 4:30 Sunday, when the Cowboys play the Colts.

The Eagles will not make the playoffs unless they win their final two games, and the Cowboys lose at least once. Dallas ends their regular season with Washington, while the Eagles have to go up the Jersey Turnpike to face the Giants.

DeMarco Murray continues to be questionable for the 'Boys with a broken bone in his hand.

The Eagles beat the Colts early in this season. They need to hope Andrew Luck and company can rise to the occasion.
