Let’s face it, our winters have sucked lately. As a fan of snow, and snow activities, I’m finding this whole global warming thing to be a massive inconvenience, as it’s really cutting into my  cross-country skiing time.  Anyhow, this last week we’ve finally been blessed with a solid snowstorm that’s managed to stick around for

Some of My Favorite Pennsylvania-centric Songs

New Years Resolutions

I’ll admit to it, I’m one of those weirdos who writes up a list of New Year’s resolutions every year.  This year is no exception except I’ve decided to make a list of new places/experiences I’d like to complete and hope that by publicizing it here, I’ll be forced to comply.   Let me know you
