Collingswood Facebook Community Group (Like H-Town’s) Blows Up

Phillyvoice has an article about yet another Facebook community group splintering due to drama trauma. Why did journalist Kevin C. Shelly report this non-event as “news” when it isn’t really new?

Townie has no regrets from Anthem of the Seas cruise

Perhaps the Royal Caribbean ship “Anthem of the Seas” should be called “Anathema the Seas”**. The ship is turning around for the 2nd time in almost as many weeks.

Find the black dog – photos from today’s walk

We went for a little walk today along Pennsy Trail to see the snow before it melts.

What to do in H-Town if your pet makes a run for it

Dogs and cats are living together, out on the mean streets of H-Town. Well, maybe they aren’t living “together” exactly. They insist they’re just roommates. Still – what’s the procedure if your pet makes a break for his gang banging buds? And what do you do if you find a domesticated animal? Search your surrounding […]

Bamboozled: Bucks County town tryin’ to be like us

We’re just famous. That’s all there is to it. Or else, the Philly.com is obsessed with us like the New York Times is obsessed with Philadelphia. This time, Bucks County folks are planting the seeds of thought for a bamboo ordinance. The article mentions we Townies are pioneers, as we already have one in place. (BTW […]

If you want open space, BUY IT

There’s a ridiculous letter from Phil Heron making the rounds. Mr. Heron is the Editor of the Daily Times. He is echoing the woes of locals who protest development over open space.

It may seem like mischief night has come early to H-Town, but what’s really happening is some good ol’ fashioned school spirit, in the form of bathroom tissue.
