Hello from the hill top at the end of the Piedmont Plains

If you ever want to know how far a tsunami would wash-up into Ridley Park just drive from our house on Sellers Avenue across Chester Pike and down the last hill of the Piedmont Plains into the Delaware River. We're up on the last hill and we'd likely make it through the first set of waves.

Dedicated Ridley Park Weather Station

Posted on January 30, 2017 at 12:30pm 9 Comments

I installed a professional weather station to monitor the weather conditions at my home in Ridley Park and to broadcast my data...it's nothing new to want to freely share weather data.  

For 100's of years fans of weather have stepped out their back door and made observations…

Hi Howard! Hmm.. for a mural/painting of that kind at that size one or two people could create something over the course of a few weekends or if working everyday over a week or two I'd say.  I'd love to do something like that, of course the image/design and the level of elaborateness would factor in to the overall time ect.. Is there a particular image in mind for the bridge?

Thanks Howard, for the comments on "Lifeguard Studio!"  Much appreciated!  And glad that you enjoy it!

Well it goes to show that a council person who truely acted out of hand and was more rude and out bounds and only wanted to argue was just not right and that the point in hand he did not really want to hear it, so now my question would be why even go to council if this is really how things can go,  And yes I stood my ground and and was herd but I have also been trying to be HERD for sometime.  As for Mr.  Berger being there or not that should not be a reason for things not to happen and for someone to be told to shut up.  And WOW another council person did have the thoughts to remind council and the one that got out of hand that I do live in Ridley Park and that I do PAY TAXES...and that residents need to be herd and not put thru a WAR ZONE od bashing like the onecouncilmember did. So more or less I can see where he wants to be and thats not with the Residentsof Ridley Park...at the workshop  he sure showed what he was like.


As for the business owner yes he was very supportive and I did respect what he said and how he was and as I have said I have nothing against that business or him.

hello howard,

  thanks for getting back to me regarding places to stay near to ridley park. I may end up not coming in November due to a previous committment that I had completely forgotten about until today !  However, I may end up coming "home" next July  en route to  Italy and England ( for the 2012 summer Olympics ) and maybe on the way home to CA  since I must change planes in Philly.

  Thanks so very much for all of the time you have put into this amazing site!

Howard, Have you had any trouble with your kitchen sink? Mine is leaking because it wasn't installed right according to my plumber. I may come over and look at yours sometime if that is ok. Thanks

Whats up with the dump truck on vacant property across from your house. I believe that there is an ordinance against this. Also, looks pretty bad as this is a main road traveled by many coming into RP.

Can you get a picture of the amazing weeping cherry tree across from Tim's post?? It only flowers for a short time and it is so gorgeous. I would love to see that up on the website. Thanks
