A Road Trip of a Life Time…

Something Good…

Pictures can speak a thousand words… #Advent season is here!

Coming Home…

A Perfect Storm…

The weather forecast had been predicting that New Jersey would get hit pretty hard with the trickle down effects of Hurricane Isaias.

I continued to ignore alerts from our local energy company as theyContinue reading “A Perfect Storm…”
