Wawa now Open!!!

Hi everyone,


If you didn't notice but our new Wawa is now open!  I spoked in there today with my little girl, the place was so nice, big and very well organized, now more bumping into each other to get coffee or a drink. And I would like to also add the property looks so peaceful and nice in the back. A better eye view then an eye sore. Wonder if other RP residances felt the same???

looking for a place where I can have about 25 people to celebrate the 10th anniversary of my mom passing. I wanted to get my family and friends together to remember what a wonderful person my mom was and is.


Anyway you may suggest to hold this? I was thinking of out doors/buffett, money is tight but still wanted to have it somewhere. I would need tables and chairs or picnic tables to have a place to enjoy food. Local to delaware county, but if something close outside, please…

Hey Ridley Park, step up the recycling!

I took a walk in the 3rd precinct this morning and was dismayed at how many trash cans and bags included items that should be recycled instead - clear-cut things like cardboard boxes and empty bottles.

Let's step it up!  Put those items out on the right day, don't be lazy and include them with your trash!

Playing poker with Bob Berger and Ridley Park's Sellers Avenue Bridge

For the short time I've known Bob Berger, his smiling grin and dimples haven't given away the cards he's holding close to his chest.  That wasn't the case at May's Borough Council meeting when the leader of Ridley Park's Borough Council laid-out his cards on the table and said he was "going on the attack" against the current proposal to rebuild the Sellers Avenue Bridge.…

Let mom's do what mom's do best

It's Mother's Day Sunday and that special day once a year, where moms get to collect all the attention and do all she wants, wasn't the reason why a series of moms started mother's day in the first place.

For a millennium moms everywhere had been losing their sons in battle, but it wasn't until the author of The Battle Hymn of the Republic thought-up Mother's Day…

Vegetable garden

Have you planted your vegetables yet?  This weekend I plan to finally get my tomatoes into the ground, along with Swiss chard, basil, and zinnia plants.  Grew them from seed and proud I am!

What's in your veggie garden?
