This is getting pretty pathetic! Looking at my last three posts including this one; I have been announcing my return to what I feel is a pretty neat idea for a blog. ....... and once again; there are no posts or pictures.

It has been an awesome year for sales results, with very little time to catch my breath and whip out the camera for even a few shots. I love photography and just need to take the time and click away.

My territory of New Jersey and the Eastern half of Pennsylvania has an amazing diversification of life, and I need to enjoy all it has to offer. I could learn from my son Zach, who has been compiling a pictorial guide of the "forgotten sites of Philadelphia" during his lunch hours while working in the Rittenhouse Square area of Philadelphia. His pictures of old and forgotten city architecture is nothing short of amazing.

I hope to be back up rather quickly!

Have a great day......

Happy New Year.......

Well here we are at the start of 2011!

I am hoping for the discipline in this New Year, to update my blog at least every week. The concept is that my vehicle is my "office window" and in traveling to so many places in New Jersey and Pennsylvania; I hope to introduce you to people and places that are unique to my sales territory.

My Wish for anyone reading this blog, is for you to have a "Healthy and Happy 2011"!

Tuesday, August 31, 2010........

Crazy (busy) day starting in Denver Pennsylvania, traveling to Gap Pennsylvania, on to Berks County, and winding up in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

It's amazing just how much road construction is going on in this Country. Major highways, small towns, and back roads. It's called "hurry up - and wait"! The interesting part of this statement is that if you jump off the highways and take the detours; you're usually rewarded with a view of the countryside, you would never see otherwise.

...... just a few pictures of the countryside.........

Daniel Boone Homestead

Daniel Boone Homestead

Still trying to upload some pictures.......

The view from my office window.......

You never know where a "sales call" will present itself.

In case you don't recognize this park; it's the Daniel Boone Homestead, off of Route 422 in Birdsboro, Pennsylvania. I stopped there today on my lunch break to have a look and was quite impressed. I have passed the signs since the early 90's and never took the time to check it out.

While taking some pictures; I came upon a gentleman that turned out to be the Head Groundskeeper and we had a very good conversation about history, and then of course we discussed products used at this park.

If anyone is looking for a "Diamond in the Rough"; this is the place! There is approximately 170 acres in this area, that contain over four miles of hiking trails. There are picnic areas, camping areas and a shooting range for re-enactors. Weekends have the houses and barns open for viewing, and the grounds are immaculate.

* Many people think that Daniel Boone died at the Alamo, but that was Davey Crockett.

* The Homestead was a hiding place of a number of copies of the Declaration of Independence, and served as a meeting place for our Founding Father's while it was being discussed and formulated.
