Kinetic Sculpture Derby skate

Screen Shot 2017-05-24 at 7.05.57 PM

Every year there is a “Kinetic Sculpture Derby” here in Philly. Today we skated through it. As a matter fact, there is a skate-through-it every year; or at least that’s what my memory tells me. I tried to look for photos but I can’t seem to find any on my computer; I guess they’re gone somewhere. What I […]

Spring into Summer in Philly

Yesterday was perfect weather and a great day to walk around. Philadelphia is a very walker-friendly place and yesterday was definitely good for it. What is the purpose of this post?

Yeah, this happens every New Years Day in Philly.  Bright and early in the morning a fuck-ton of drunk crazies flood the streets, some of them wearing costumes.

I love spring in Philadelphia.  This city is one of the greener ones that I’ve been to: lots of parks, etc.  When the city blooms every spring, life here is just flabbergastingly great. Today we had planned a “Cherry Blossoms skate” but, alas, there were far fewer of those than I had expected. Just compare […]

Spring in Philly, complete with snow and 72 ºF weather

Has the weather always been crazy like this?  to the best of my recollection, the last 2 years the outside conditions have been swinging more wildly than anything I can recall from the ears before.  We have freezing temperatures one morning and flip-flops weather the next morning. Yesterday I was freezing trying to walk from […]
