restaurant rave: mino in malvern

Chester County Ramblings - Fri, 2017-06-16 21:23

Mino in Malvern on Lancaster Avenue is marvelous!  We had never eaten there and decided to try it this evening.

Hands down, the best sushi around.  I have enjoyed other sushi places, but this is the best. Friends of mine have been telling me for years it’s the best, and now I must say I concur wholeheartedly.

The fish is super fresh, and other things like the dumplings are divine. They also have a house blend matcha green tea that has this nutty note to it because I believe it is also brewed with roasted  brown rice if I understood the waitress correctly.

And also the staff – they have an amazing waitstaff at Mino. So nice and so knowledgeable about their own menu.

If you have never been, you should definitely check it out. Extraordinary menu, reasonably priced. It also has a super nice atmosphere with their new interior makeover.

Mino – 321 Lancaster Avenue, Malvern, PA 19355. 610-651-8756.

bogus breast cancer charity shut down.

Chester County Ramblings - Fri, 2017-06-16 13:18

This is a really big deal.  There are far too many scam charities out there in this world.  This video and a link to the official press release came with a note from an Assistant New York Attorney General:

I thought you’d be interested in this…..And thank you for assisting us in the investigation.


I was one of the people who had been contacted by this non-profit (and one of thousands who complained about phone calls from bogus breast cancer charities) and was one of the every day people who cooperated with the efforts of the New York State Attorney General’s Bureau of Charities investigation.

Why I am posting this here?  Because every day someone gets a call from a cold caller. This is yet another reason to not take their calls.  Legitimate charities are not going to pay oodles of money each year to cold calling companies to press innocent people on making donations to an organization they have never heard of.  I started getting calls about this fake breast cancer charity within days of my partial mastectomy six years ago.  When they called, they already knew I was a “survivor”.  To this day, I do not know how they got my name or information.

Anyway, I think this is pretty cool.  Even in today’s world sometimes the white hats actually prevail.

Another anniversary

Heron's Nest - Fri, 2017-06-16 07:05
As I mentioned earlier this week, it's a pretty heady week here at the Heron's Nest.

Not only this one, but the "nest" at home as well.

Yes, I first stepped foot in the Daily Times on June 14, 1982. Flag Day.

Almost exactly one year later, I made the best decision of my life.

I married the woman who had waited - probably a lot longer than she should have - for me to pop the question.

Little did she know what she was getting herself into.

Ask anyone who has been in this business for any amount of time. This racket is very tough on personal relationships. I can't count the number of fractured lives I have seen over the course of these past three decades.

I got married on June 18, 1983.

So I will mark 34 years of wedded bliss this weekend.

Or, as my wife presciently always points out, "I'm always trying to catch up with the newspaper."

She's not kidding.

I have often joked that my wife has shared me all these years with my "mistress," the Daily Times.

I was only half-joking.

The truth is, she pretty much was a solo act on the home front. She took care of things there, while I was here. She kept the books, managed the house, and - most importantly - took the lead in raising two fantastic kids.

In short, I worked, she did everything else.

I don't doubt that many times in all those moments she spent alone - when I was not there - that she pondered kicking my sorry behind to the curb and starting over.

She never did.

For a long time I worked nights and weekends. We would be like ships in the night. After the kids were born, I would try to get up to see them off to school. I didn't always get there, just as I was so often not there during so many family events. Where was I? Work, of course.

She stayed with me through promotions, and has been at my side the last 18 years as I've sat in the editor's chair.

I don't think either one of us was quite prepared for what the Internet would do to this business - and the job.

Those long hours suddenly became a 24-hour, non-stop news cycle. These days we're a threesome. No, it's not what you might think. It's me, my wife, and the laptop. She is not always amused.

Try living with that for awhile.

But she persevered.

And for that I likely will never be able to repay her.

But it's probably about time I start.

Maybe I can start here: Happy anniversary.

Taking a stand against politics of hate

Heron's Nest - Fri, 2017-06-16 06:46
It was nice - at least for a couple of hours - to see the 'united' return to the United State last night.

Democrats and Republicans gathered on the baseball field to play a charity baseball game - but also to make a statement.

We will not be cowed by those who resort to violence.

I hope it will continue.

My fear is that it will not.

On our editorial page today, we talk about the politics of hate.

It is what happens when partisan bickering goes on steroids.

This is not a Democratic issue, nor a Republican issue.

It's not left or right.

Both sides have resorted to these kinds of attacks.

We're better than this.

At least I hope we are.

You can read our editorial here.
